Fact Check of the Week

The duo behind the bestselling weight-loss how-to Skinny Bitch are back with a follow-up: Skinny Bastard, due to hit stores Monday. And it features among its famous faces several vegan athletes, including them a certain hobbled Dallas Maverick who's been sidelined during the playoffs. Alas, The New York Times has done its due diligence:
The authors added a section on professional athletes who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet (although not necessarily the one presented in Skinny Bitch), including Ricky Williams, a running back for the Miami Dolphins, and Jerry Stackhouse, a shooting guard for the Dallas Mavericks. (A spokeswoman for the Mavericks said Mr. Stackhouse was now back to eating meat.)
