The 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart: Boost Metabolism, Lower Cholesterol, and Dramatically Improve Your Health by Neal D. Barnard ($25.99 US/ $28.99 CAN) outlines a three week plan designed to help participants drop pounds, boost their metabolism, lower cholesterol & blood pressure, reduce appetite, improve blood sugar, and more!
The kickstart program is designed to help participants make clinically proven changes in their health (and weight) by implementing short term changes in the way they eat. These short term changes impact long term habits and voilà… permanent results. The basis of the plan is not to count calories, engage in vigorous exercise, or to cut carbs: during the kickstart program, you actually don’t have to think much at all about calories, exercise, or carbohydrates. In the 21- Day Weight Loss Kickstart, Barnard lays out the basics of a plant based diet and goes into great detail to make sure participants have a knowledge base where acceptable foods are easily locate, identify, and enjoy. In fact, nearly one-third of the book is dedicated to sample menus, recipes, and descriptions of foods and cooking techniques.
Other than being an informative and useful resource about meals and foods, another area this book really shines is in offering support, encouragement, and practical advise for sticking to the kickstart program. It is evident that a lot of care was taken to make sure participants know that they can enjoy a wide variety of foods with endless options, and that these options are not only health beneficial, but completely doable as well.
Definitely a great read for those interested in a plant based diet but need a little encouragement and support to make those final steps into a new (but equally tasty and enjoyable) way of life.
