From the Publisher

In this informative and practical guide, two seasoned vegans offer tips and advice for thriving without animal by-products. Sometimes funny and irreverent yet always aware of its serious message, this resource for being vegan in a world that doesn’t always understand or have sympathy for the lifestyle illustrates how to go vegan in three weeks or less by employing a “cold tofu method; convince family, friends, and others that there is no such thing as a vegan cult; and survive restaurants, grocery stores, and meals with omnivores. Also offering answers to questions such as “"Do you, like, live on apples and twigs?” this reference dispels myths and explains the arguments for ethical, abolitionist veganism, encouraging everyone to embrace their inner vegan.

Why I Had Weight-Loss Surgery

It was Jennifer Weiner’s father—a child psychiatrist—who first made her feel bad about her weight. “When I was 11 or 12, he would say, ‘You’re fat, you’re ugly, no boy is going to want to date you,’ ” says Weiner. “He made me feel ashamed of how I looked, and eating made me not feel ashamed—it let me not feel anything. Then, of course, I’d eat and feel even more ashamed.” Just talking about those memories brings Weiner, 46, close to tears. As the bestselling novelist (Good in Bed, In Her Shoes) reveals in her new book of personal essays, Hungry Heart, her dad was “wonderful” when she was very

We once hoisted a glass with dinner, soaked our breakfast cereal or dipped into the occasional milkshake. This habitual milk drinking was no accident. It started in the 1800s, when Americans moved from farms to cities. "First, you had to have the rise of milk trains that would bring milk from the countryside. That milk was refrigerated wit
