Product Description

Product Description

Let’s be honest. I was fat. I was 28 and bulky as I’ve ever been. Maybe bulky doesn’t quite describe it. Let me rephrase: I was 200 pounds overweight. I think a lot of people would have given up and just gotten comfortable with being overweight, but something inside me just snapped (which I talk about in the book) and I decided to transform my life.

You can imagine my first reaction upon finding a vegan diet. “I’m no wild antelope that eats plants and grass” is what I thought. But then again I had no idea what I was talking about. The vegan diet is without a doubt the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me.

In this book I’m going to show you how I lost weight, gained back my body, my self esteem, my confidence and completely transformed my life using the vegan diet.

Let’s get started!

5.0 out of 5 stars great introduction to vegan weight loss 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase
Highly inspirational. Although I probably will not become completely vegan, due to health problems I really need to lose about 50 pounds - I aim to juice one meal, vegan/salad one meal and only have protein from animals or fish 3 times each week.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Issues 9 July 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on

Some serious flaws with the book. First off, the title is a misnomer. Many of the recipes were decidedly NOT low fat. The author makes extensive use of nuts and avocado, oils, etc. I was surprised at the recipes calling for flour and brown sugar. More serious, there are no serving sizes indicated. This is a big deal with those trying to lose weight, if they were capable of correctly judging serving sizes, most wouldn't be overweight to begin with. Is one to assume, for example, a "large bunch of kale" with its creamy cashew sauce constitutes a single serving? The writing style was conversational and fun and I enjoyed her amazing story, the amount of weight she lost each and every month was pretty amazing...leading one to think that if it continues, the author has long faded away into nothingness by now.

If you have been vegan for a while, don't waste your money. This is basically a monthly journal of weight loss and becoming vegan with some recipes included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired 25 Jun 2014

It's inspiring to read others success. I'm considering the vegan lifestyle. You see I'm a cancer survivor and I don't want that awful disease back. My Dr. told me that it always comes back. I feel like a ticking time bomb. Research has told me this is a positive step in killing any cancer cells that remain. I'm not sure however if I'm strong enough to do so . It's quite scary
