Product Description
"For years, Dr. Neal D. Barnard has been at the forefront of cutting-edge research on what it really takes to lose weight and restore the body to optimal health. Now, with his proven, successful program, in just three short weeks you'll get fast results-drop pounds, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, improve blood sugar, and more. With Dr. Barnard's advice on how to easily start a plant-based diet, you'll learn the secrets to reprogramming your body quickly:· Appetite reduction: Strategically choose the right foods to naturally and easily tame your appetite.· Metabolism boost: Adjust eating patterns to burn calories faster for about three hours after each meal.· Cardio protection: Discover the powerful foods that can help reduce cholesterol nearly as much as drugs do in just weeks.Whether you are one of the millions who are anxious to get a jumpstart on weight loss or who already know about the benefits of a plant-based diet but have no idea how or where to start, this book is the kickstart you've been waiting for. Complete with more than sixty recipes, daily meal plans for the 21-day program, tips for grocery shopping, and more, this book will teach you how to make the best food choices and get your body on the fast track to better health."

What we thought: I can't honestly review this program because after reading it I decided I couldn't commit to it 100% at this point in my life. However, the book is very well written and includes lots of tips and recipes to help you improve your life through a plant-based diet. We aren't ready to cut out all animal products quite yet, but some of the recipes could definitely be added to our regular rotation. If you are working on eliminating all animal products and need a little motivation, this may well be the book for you:)
