Substance over profit. My decision to update my book #allihaveisalaptopandadream

This blog is about a decision that I have been wrestling with for a while.

I am a vegan. I have embraced this lifestyle over five years ago.

When I wrote the earlier version of my current book I Know How to Lose Weight, So Why Haven’t I, I wasn’t vegan and the book had a totally different title. In the book there is a section on proper nutrition. I don’t really name meat, dairy or other animal products in the section, but the inferences in the book refer to animal products.

I can’t in good conscious condone eating meat and animal products, even though the vast majority of the audience my book may appeal to does.

Profits are not worth compromising my beliefs.

Becoming vegan has changed my life for the better and I would rather have my book appeal to those interested in a vegan diet and other vegans than to give the impression that I am in support of the standard American diet (SAD diet).

This may not be a big deal to some and a bad idea to others but I have to go with what feels right to me.

Thanks for reading.
