    Alicia Silverstone, perhaps best known for her generation-defining turn inClueless, continues to work steadily in film, television, and theater. A dynamic fixture in the acting, political, and scientific communities, she is a dedicated advocate on behalf of the planet and its animals, and was voted "Sexiest Vegetarian Alive" in 2004. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Christopher, and their four rescued dogs.

    In The Kind Diet, actress, activist, and committed conservationist Alicia Silverstone shares the insights that encouraged her to swear off meat and dairy forever, and outlines the spectacular benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, from effortless weight loss to clear skin, off-the-chart energy, and smooth digestion. She explains how meat, fish, milk, and cheese--the very foods we've been taught to regard as the cornerstone of good nutrition--are actually the culprits behind escalating rates of diseaseand the cause of dire, potentially permanent damage to our ecology.

    Yet going meat- and dairy-free doesn't mean suffering deprivation; to the contrary,The Kind Diet introduces irresistibly delicious food that satisfies on every level--it even includes amazing desserts to keep the most stubborn sweet tooth happy. Alicia also addresses the nutritional concerns faced by many who are new to a plant-based diet, and shows how to cover every nutritional base, from protein to calcium and beyond.

    Alicia knows that changing life-long dietary habits is a process, and that each person progresses at a different pace. For that reason,The Kind Diet encompasses 3 separate levels, from Flirting to Superhero. Flirts learn to dip a toe into the vegan pool, reducing their meat-eating and swapping out a few key foods for plant-based substitutes to see quickly how even small changes can reap big results.Vegans get to experience the life-altering effects of forgoing animal-products entirely, while still enjoying many convenience foods and meat substitutes in addition to the wonderful grains, vegetables and fruits that form the core of that diet. True enlightenment comes with the Superhero program, based on the principles of macrobiotics and built on a foundation of whole grains, vegetables, and other yummy foods that Alicia describes in detail.

    Whether your goal is to drop a few pounds, boost your energy and metabolism, or simply save the world, Alicia provides the encouragement, the information, and the tools you need to make the transition to a plant-based diet deliciously empowering.

      Bought this as a gift to a vegetarian friend who also tries to eat vegan most of the time. So far she says its a great book, I have yet to try any of the recipes though. Some of the ingredients hard to find in regular stores.

      I was very excited to get this book; however, I was disappointed to find that it's not 100% recipes. I wanted a delicious vegan cookbook, but this is a combination of facts, studies, research, etc. AND several recipes. Being a visual person I would have enjoyed more pictures with next to the corresponding recipes then pictures of random "super heroes" or of Alicia (nothing against her, just prefer pictures of food in my cookbook). It is a VERY informative book about the food industry and how food affects our bodies (some similarity to the book "skinny bitch"). Some of it makes you never want to eat again! You read along and feel like Alicia is siting in your kitchen sharing personal food stories and giving you advice. I haven't tried the recipes yet, but I've read them and they sound delicious.

      I really liked this book for its approach to vegetarian and vegan lifestyles. I beliveve it is a great introduction because it goes beyond what to eat. I liked Alicia's stories about her conversion and not taking a holier than thou attitude for those not ready to totally commit to a macrobiotic diet. Those who are already vegetarians and/or vegans may find this book to be redundant. I don't know if I I will become a vegan, but I have already incorporated a lot of her suggestions into my diet and I feel better for it. The recipes are really good.
