Unfortunately there are some that will never alter their eating habits for the sake of better health, never. I have a sister that had a stroke at the early age of 49 due to her bad food choices and lack of exercise and it was heartbreaking to see as she was the picture of health and glamour all through her 20's-30's.
So maybe the new book by Celebrity Chef Rocco Dispirito will help those that can't or won't get down with becoming vegan or even eating less meat and dairy products with his "ditch the calories, keep the sin" theme.

Celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito wants to turn a collection of healthy recipes into a lifestyle, and he wants people to feel bad about it.
The key to transforming comfort food into healthy fare is cutting calories while retaining the "sinful" feeling that comes from eating rich foods, he said Saturday in an Associated Press interview at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival.
"Fried chicken needs to feel bad. You need to crunch through that outer coating, you need to feel like you're committing a sin," he said, describing a recipe that involves poaching chicken until it's almost cooked, then flash frying it so that it absorbs just a tenth of the oil of the conventional approach.
His new cookbook, "Now Eat This! Diet" is a follow-up to his best-selling "Now Eat This!" cookbook. The new book combines a diet plan and recipes with shopping lists, menus and exercise advice, and though it joins countless other diet books on store shelves, DiSpirito said his offers a new approach.
