"From author and punk rocker John Joseph, a vegan manifesto and guidebook that crushes the myth that meat is macho"--
John Joseph wants men to know, in no uncertain terms, that they don&;t need to eat steak, burgers, wings, ribs, or any other animal product, for that matter, to be strong&;in fact, he would argue, eating animals is for the weak. Because when your protein sources come from animals, you&;re missing out on all of the nutritional benefits of a plant-based diet&;a diet that can make you more fit, more sexy, and more manly. ??In Meat is for Pussies, Joseph presents a throw-down of information, offering both personal and scientific evidence that a plant-based diet offers the best path to athleticism, endurance, strength, and overall health. In addition to handily dispelling the myths surrounding meat, Joseph offers workout advice, a meal plan, and recipes that make going plant-based easy. Flavor and vitamin-packed options like the Working Man Stew and Veggie Chili with Cornbread will keep men&;s (and women&;s) bodies healthy and energized, while workouts that emphasize cardio and strength training build endurance and stamina and prove that you don&;t need meat to build muscle.??Joseph also offers living proof that living a plant-based lifestyle is badass, from super-athlete Brendan Brazier to MMA champion Jake Shields to Joseph himself, who is an Ironman Triathlete and still rocking out (at the age of fifty-two) on world tours as the frontman for his legendary band the Cro-Mags. Joseph&;s passion for educating the world about the benefits of a plant-based diet comes through on each page, in a voice and a vocabulary that is uniquely his own. At the end of the day, he wants readers to live a long, healthy, happy life . . . and he won&;t take no for an answer.
