Skinny Bastard

I've just started reading this and am still on the intro, but very impressed by it so far!



Here's just 2 things that made me lol from the intro:

Quote:
Whenever you see the words 'fat-free' or 'low-fat,' think of the words 'chemical shit storm.' Read the ingredients.
Quote:
Are you a pill popper? ....

If your nose is running, your body is trying to rid itself of something through your snot. But you, drama queen, take cold medicine to stop your runny nose. Now you've gone and fucked up everything. Medicine is made of chemicals. Never mind that the Food and Drug dministration gives meds their stamp of approval. They also allow the use of aspartame*. Use your own damn brain.
* They previously talk about how effed up aspartame is.

Check it out it's only 5.99 !! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Skinny-Bastard-Rory-Freedman/dp/0762435402/ref=tag_dpp_lp_edpp_img_in_f

Re: Skinny Bastard

I'd say worse than MSG (although I wouldn't touch MSG either). Here's a quote from the book to answer your question tho... seeing as they put it so eloquently

Quote:
When methyl alcohol, a component of aspartame, enters your body, it turns into formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is toxic and carcinogenic (cancer-causing). Laboratory scientists use formaldehyde as a disinfectant or preservative. They don't fucking drink it.

In addition, refined sugars make you fat. Excess amounts are stored in the liver as glycogen. But when the liver is too full, the excess amounts are returned to the bloodstream as fatty acids. Guess where those end up? Your saggy, old-lady ass; your big, fat gut; and your man-boobs.

Re: Skinny Bastard

Cheers Soup, will take a look. Only last week I was thinking about becoming a vegan - that's when I found this book, I searched for related items on Amazon and it was one of the top sellers.

Re: Skinny Bastard

Don't become a vegan! Every vegetarian i know are cool, vegans are just anarchistic dickheads, who lose any sentient argument!

Re: Skinny Bastard

I think it's what I am at the core tho - ethically at least.

If I could raise my own animals/poultry and knew they weren't being mistreated I might think different. But tbh I'd much rather learn to cook vegetables better and tastier than eat meat - as meat isn't great/easy for our bodies to digest anyway (so would only have it now and then).

I can see why many 'Anarchists' may be vegan - Vegans feel very strongly about their 'ethics' and that most likely includes how companies take advantage of and abuse the earth/people in the third world.

I feel strongly about it too - in fact one of the things I want to do in the near future is promote ethical business practises. I feel there is a compromise and happy medium, unfortunately most big businesses don't.
