Hey all. I am looking for some reading about diet and nutrition. I am not looking for a fad diet book. I am a vegetarian so a book that emphasizes plants would be good. What arfe your guys' favs?

I don't remember it advocating vegetarianism as a lifestyle, but Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food was a pretty decent read.

I come from a vegan point of view but these books I find useful:

Some nice easy to read books are:
The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone
Skinny B**** by Freedman & Banouin

A more scientific type book is:
Plant based nutrition and Health by Stephen Walsh PHD

The Vegetarian Way. (http://www.amazon.com/Vegetarian-Way-Total-Health-Family/dp/0517882752) if you want a book.

PCRM Guide to Healthy Weight Loss (http://www.pcrm.org/health/prevmed/weightloss.html) if you want online resources.

HTH! :)

I just got in defense of food myself.

Do you watch documentaries?

I LOVED food inc and killer at large. <<< I'm vegan, but although those docu's aren't veg*n related they are REALLY good.

If you are in the mood for some humor to lighten up your diet try How to Eat Like a Hot Chick its actually a great read and while maybe not the most techincal diet book it will give you some good tips and many good laughs! It may not be 100% Veg but praises spinich!
