New book questions manhood of men who eat meat

The persistent myth that vegetarian men are nothing more than frail leaf eating wimps has been slowly eroding away over the past few years due in part to high-profile herbivores like Prince Fielder, Carl Lewis, Tony Gonzalez and Jake Shields. It is a lesson in action, if an athlete who requires strength, endurance and agility can cut out flesh than obviously everyday men can do the same, right? Well author John Joseph offers a very clear answer to that question in his new subtly titled book “Meat is for Pussies.”

Vegan and vegetarian luminaries such as Chef Tal Ronnen, Pro Ironman triathlete Brendan Brazier and Skinny Bitch author Rory Freedman are endorsing MIFP (Meat is for Pussies, yes I just made that up) that gives readers the choice to either “continue living like a pussy” or to take control of their lives.

The book provides a look into the “sickening” truth behind meat while giving the framework to readers to start living a “happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.” Including a plan to transform that soft omnivorous physique and even increase your libido. Let me ask, what red blooded male doesn't want to increase his libido? Come on guys that alone should make you re-think that fat filled steak or that cholesterol ladened KFC Double Down.

Hear, Hear to Mr. Joseph—it’s about time more of us plant-based diet fueled tough guys let the world know that meat truly is for pussies!

We have been given permission by John Joseph to post the introduction of the soon-to-be-released "Meat is for Pussies."


The key to learning is to keep an open mind and try new things, so I’ll show you what has worked best for me and those I’ve passed this info onto. Make no mistake about it: my intention is to get you to stop eating meat for your own sake. It’s easier than you think, especially since meat-free foods, prepared properly, taste amazing. The kick-ass, easy-to-make, nutrient-rich meals and super-food recommendations in the back of this book will jump-start your metabolism and kick your libido into overdrive. Ah, now I’ve got your attention, don’t I? Read on and you’ll find out more.

With my approach, I always try to be a little philosophical. It was the late Eleanor Roosevelt who once said, “Somewhere along the line of development we discover what we really are, and then we make our real decision for which we are responsible. Make that decision primarily for yourself because you can never really live anyone else’s life, not even your own child’s. The influence you exert is through your own life and what you become yourself.”

Exactly, fellas, it’s all about dedication and making lifelong changes. If you take advantage of this knowledge and combine it with a solid exercise regimen, you’ll become a force to be reckoned with. If you breeze through this book and ignore everything inside, you’ll continue on your path towards debilitating health, devastating weakness and undeniable misery. The choice is yours. Every journey starts with a first step, and the first step of this journey is to understand how meat’s harmful effects are turning you into a PUSSY.

“Meat is for Pussies” will be available starting May 15. Sign up here to be notified when the book drops.
