nicole Posted March 12, 2008 Share Posted March 12, 2008 My friend, John Joseph (who the hardcore kids will know as the singer from the Cro Mags, FVK, Bloodclot, etc) is writing a second book about vegetarianism containing health and training advice and gourmet vegetarian recipes. The book is called "Meat is for Pussies." While his approach is not one that appeals to me, I suspect that there are probably people out there that this speaks to. Also, John looks amazing for someone his age or even younger (he was born in 1962), so I am curious to see his training advice. Here is the intro from the book: Who propagated this bullshit that meat makes you macho? My guess is itâ€™s the same big business assholes that told you the Marlboro man was a stud. Eating defenseless animals doesnâ€™t make you tough numbnuts. It makes you a coward. You wanna eat meat? Instead of purchasing factory killed, slickly packaged animal parts, have some balls and try this: Go out to the woods or jungle, tear down an animal with your bare hands, rip it apart and eat it. I guarantee you youâ€™ll find out just what a big pussy you are because youâ€™ll get your ass handed to you like some idiot on that TV show "When Animals Attack." Iâ€™ve met so many weight lifter Neanderthals over the years that were like, "Yo, I need meat, it makes me aggressive." Or my favorite, the protein myth, "Yo, where do you get your protein from guy?" as if the only source for protein is dead, rotting carcasses. In reality there are dozens of sources of protein that doesnâ€™t require the systematic incarceration, torture, and finally, slaughter of animals. And as far as aggression, I know some vegetarians that will rip your fuckinâ€™ head off in a New York minute. These people have all bought into the lies and propaganda put out there by the douche bags running the meat industry who are some of the most powerful lobbyists in the U.S. Do you remember that bullshit ad campaign they ran a while ago? "Beef itâ€™s whatâ€™s for dinnerâ€¦" yeah, and cancer, arterial sclerosis, high blood pressure, impotence, as well as dozens of other meat-eating related diseasesâ€¦ thatâ€™s your karmic dessert. Iâ€™m sick of people, who are either ignorant of the facts, or even worse, have hidden agendas, dissing vegetarians because we care about animals and the environment. What do you want to live in a barren wasteland dick wad? Now, just so we get off on the right foot here I want you to know my background. Iâ€™m not some new age, macro-psychotic wimp trying to get you to eat your sprouts. Most new age people make me fucking puke. The fact is Iâ€™ve probably had a harder life then 90% of you out there. Just read my first book, "The Evolution of a Cro-Magnon." I survived orphanages, abusive foster homes, boyâ€™s homes, NYCâ€™s mean streets in the mid-seventies at 14, shootings, stabbings, lock-ups, drug addiction, homelessness, the music business and the list goes on. So if anyone knows a thing or two about being tough and fighting on itâ€™s me. What Iâ€™m giving you in this book is a no-holes-barred, New York style beat down for your brain cells on real health and real nutrition, and Iâ€™m not pulling any punches. To be honest I donâ€™t blame you carnivorous fuckers for being turned off to a vegetarian diet by the looks of a majority of vegetarians. The first thing meat-eaters say to me is, "Damn, youâ€™re a vegetarian?" I know what they mean. Most vegetarians look like weak-as-fuck string beans. But Iâ€™ve been at this a long time, almost 30 years, and Iâ€™m as physical as they come. On any given day itâ€™s not at all uncommon for me to run ten miles, hit the gym, pump some weights, then hit the bags for another hour. As a matter of fact just last year in â€™07, I ran the Marine Corps Marathon and I beat every fucker in the running crew I ran with, some of whom were almost half my age. Their reaction as they crossed the finish line to find me cooled off enjoying a snack, "Damn old manâ€¦" At 45 Iâ€™m still a stage diving, triathlete maniac and I attribute the longevity to two thingsâ€¦ consistency in my training and the most important, proper food choices. Over the years Iâ€™ve worked out at so many gyms and watched trainers instructing people and the one thing I find ridiculous is most of these guys donâ€™t know shit about nutrition. I mean, at one old school gym on the Lower East Side I had this Puerto Rican bodybuilder tell me Alpo-burgers are great protein and if its good enough for his pit bull, its good enough for him. Thatâ€™s an extreme case, but you get my point. If you arenâ€™t hip to what the fuck youâ€™re putting in your body itâ€™s like trying to light a fire (training), but constantly throwing water on it at the same time with what youâ€™re stuffing your face with. Thatâ€™s why in this book, the first thing Iâ€™m going to do is tell you exactly what all that shit your eating is really doing to your body. Then Iâ€™m going to show you alternatives, even show you how to cook great tasting meals and give you a seven-day work out and meal plan. Notice I donâ€™t use the word dietâ€¦ diets are for pussies. If youâ€™re tired of being an Atkinsâ€™, Jenny Craig, or Weight Watcher-type diet pussy, man up because this book is for you. But, on the other hand if youâ€™re happy with your yo-yo diets and calorie counting like a fat chick in her Curves calorie class, return my book and continue on with your chronic pussy-ism. Iâ€™ll show you whatâ€™s worked for me as well as so many others Iâ€™ve turned on to this knowledge. Remember, the first part of learning is to keep an open mind and try new things. Itâ€™s all about live foods, whole foods, green foods, energy producing foods, foods that have their enzymes in tact, plant based protein foods that donâ€™t put strain on your bodyâ€™s organs to digest them, and most importantly, foods that taste amazing and are 100% meat-free. Make no mistake about it; my intention is to get all you Joe-meat-and-potato-head fuckers to stop eating meat for your own sake. Thatâ€™s why I put some kick-ass, easy to make, nutrient rich meals in the back of this book and some super-food recommendations as well, that will kick you, your metabolism and your libido into overdrive. If you take advantage of this knowledge and combine it with a good exercise regiment, youâ€™ll become an unstoppable force to be reckoned with instead of a two-pump-chump in the gym, and the bedroom. The choice is yours, you can continue on your path of debilitating health, being weak, tired and miserable, or listen up to what your womanâ€™s been telling you all along, "Itâ€™s about longevity" and just in case you didnâ€™t know it, meat not only affects your endurance down the road, but your schlong as well! Ah, now I got your attention, donâ€™t I fucker? Read on and youâ€™ll find out how. I decided to pen this book at the urging of people Iâ€™ve given advice to over the years who were like, "Damn bro, this is easier than I thought." No shit Sherlock. I use the acronym K.I.S.S. as my mantraâ€¦ Keep It Simple Stupid. It ainâ€™t rocket science. I studied this for almost 30 years and besides having a degree from The University of the Streets in Ass-Kicking-101, I know my info on health better than lots of people in the health field. Bottom lineâ€¦ most doctors are pussies. Why you ask? Because they donâ€™t deal in prevention they just want to sell you the drug companyâ€™s medicine to treat the disease. Very expensive medicine I might add. See thatâ€™s because thereâ€™s no money in the cure. If youâ€™re healthy most of them are out of work, thatâ€™s why thereâ€™s practically no research conducted in preventive medicine i.e. herbs and natural foods. The FDA is even trying to make herbs & whole food vitamins illegal. Do they suck wooly-mammoth balls or what? So itâ€™s up to youâ€¦ you can continue to be a pussy and fuck yourself up, or you can be a real man and pull up your pants. With my approach I always try to be a little philosophical. As such I hope I donâ€™t overload any brain cells here by quoting the late Eleanor Roosevelt who said, "Somewhere along the line of our development we discover what we really are, and then we make our decision for which we are responsible. Make that decision primarily for yourself because you can never live anyone elseâ€™s life." Exactly fellaâ€™s, itâ€™s all about you making lifelong changes, and you never retreating back to a life of unhealthiness. Every journey in life starts with a first step. The first step on this journey is to understand that as the harmful effects of meat take a toll on your bodyâ€¦ YOU WILL BECOME A PUSSY. http://a338.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/60/l_ce61ab767a3c31538ea5f07b6ca6f531.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
