New Book Presents Health Professionals With A Fully-Referenced, Meticulous Overview of the Research on Plant-Based Diets As A Healthy Choice
Date:7/31/2014

Summertown, TN (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Two years in the making, Becoming Vegan: Comprehensive Edition (Sept. 2014) is a in-depth overview of the research behind the latest scientific findings on the viability of vegan diets. Dietitians Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina, well-respected authorities on plant-based nutrition, put forth an impressive case that well-planned vegan diets are safe and adequate for people at all stages of life, including those with unique nutritional needs such as athletes and pregnant or lactating women.

Well-planned is the key operative word. The authors explore the health benefits of vegan diets compared to other dietary choices; explain protein and amino acid requirements at various stages of life; describe fats and essential fatty acids and their value in plant-based diets; investigate carbohydrate facts and fallacies; reveal the truth about wheat, gluten, and grains; pinpoint where to obtain calcium, iron, zinc and other minerals without animal products; clarify the importance of obtaining vitamin B12; and show how to attain optimal nutrition during pregnancy and lactation.

Nutritional guidelines are provided for infants, children, teens, and adults, including seniors; and a section is devoted on how to achieve and maintain healthy weights and exceptional fitness on a vegan diet. Numerous tables and graphs covering nutrient intakes, composition breakdowns, and food sources based on vitamin and mineral content illustrate each section. A handy graphic of the vegan plate offers a daily plan for healthful eating. Equally beneficial are the sample menus designed for people of various caloric needs.

Brenda Davis is a leader in her field and an esteemed, popular speaker. Since 2006, she has been actively involved in a lifestyle-based diabetes research stud
