This is very, very thorough. Allocate a good amount of time to take in all the useful info in this book. I really appreciated the info on vegan athletes as well as the section on chronic pain. Those who are overweight will delight in a chapter dedicated to the challenges of keeping weight off, and the benefits of even minor weight loss.
I understand that free glutamates (MSG) is naturally occurring in some foods, so I'm not convinced of her arguments on this topic (1 page) for people with migraines and fibro, but I tend to avoid it being added to my foods, except when eating at vegan Asian restaurants (not that there are many of those around where I live!).
Well referenced book, with resources for further information and recipes near the end.
