|Neal Barnard, M.D., brings us 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart: Boost Metabolism, Lower Cholesterol, and Dramatically Improve Your Health|
For those of you who think you can't live without meat, this is probably not the book for you or is it?
This book introduces you to the benefits of a plant based diet. That's right; no meat, fish, dairy or eggs! At first I was a bit skeptical because in my head I had been left with just veggies and fruits. Although I love eating these food groups I thought I wasn't going to be satisfied or receiving a complete array of nutrients. HOW WRONG WAS I!! This book introduces you to a whole new world of eating. Although at first you may find it difficult to leave meat behind you ultimately discover that there are many substitutes for it, such as tofu, lentils and many other yummy options. My husband and I tried it out for several weeks and we really did feel more energized and our clothes felt a bit looser. Not only will you start to look better, but your overall health will improve because with a plany based diet you cut out bad cholesterol and unwanted calories.
The main thing one should do is read the whole book first, plan, try out new food alternatives little by little, clean out your pantry of unwanted goods and then just go all out for it.
Have you ever considered a plant based diet?
