"Eating vegan is a megatrend that more and more people around the globe are enthusiastically adopting--including many stars, actors, and athletes from Hollywood to Sydney. A vegan diet is healthy, full of variety, low in fat, and cholesterol free, and it's based on delicious recipes that don't contain any animal products. The most important thing is to rethink the ingredients you buy. And then your ice cream and chocolate bars won't only be amazingly delicious, but also much healthier and lower in fat than you had ever imagined possible. In addition to health and renewed vitality, you can also have a completely clear conscience about animals and the environment. Attila Hildmann, who grew up in Germany and is now a big name in the vegan world, has given this type of diet an entirely new direction. He believes that eating vegan one or two days a week or having one vegan meal a day can considerably improve people's level of health and fitness. The aspiring physicist lost more than 65 pounds (30 kilos) himself without dieting, but rather by completely changing his eating habits. Hildmann is truly a master of coming up with recipe ideas that even people with the most discerning palates are excited about. He is even able to easily conjure up hearty flavors like those you are familiar with from meat. And his recipes are incredibly simple. Many of the recipes work well as snacks or for the office, and they'll add healthy variety to your diet."
