I just finished listening to the book Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. I found it to be a very interesting read (or in my case- listen).I liked its blunt, straight forward message, get off your ass, read labels and trust no one. It reminded me to be more vigilant about what I put in and on my body.
What I didn’t like about it, first it was just vegan propaganda, I have nothing against vegans, Paul McCartney is one so they have to be nice people. I do have a problem with people who are not experts in the field they are writing about preaching to me like they are experts. I don’t appreciate people who only do half the research on a subject, the part they want to believe and then try to cram a philosophy down my throat. The authors found research that stated evidence to show that humans are herbivores. What?? We’ve been eating meat for 1.5 million years! So we’ve been eating wrong for 1.5 million years? When we started eating meat didn’t have to use all our energy gathering food and we started acting , well, human!(Diet and the evolution of the earliest human ancestors). Now I started to buy into their we also shouldn’t drink milk rhetoric. I can see that, I know a lot of people who are lactose intolerant, it is weird that we are the only species that drink another species milk. But then I did more research and this article made things a little more clear to me. Not everyone can drink milk but being of Norwegian decent I can.
So went out to a web site that looked like the Skinny Bitch web site and found the feedback link and here is a copy of the email I tried to send:
