It’s basic knowledge that vegetarians must find alternative sources of nutrients  such as proteins, but women’s unique nutritional needs require a more complex  approach, especially during periods in the female life cycle when deficiencies  are most likely to develop: adolescence, pregnancy, and post-menopause. This  informative book explains how to maintain optimum health with a vegetarian diet  both for ovo-lacto vegetarians and vegans, and explores illness prevention,  weight concerns, and athleticism as they relate to non meat diets.
