Plant-based diets tend to be lower in cholesterol and saturated fats and high in healthy plant sterols which can help to improve heart health and overall well-being. This book focusess on a diet rich in cirtus fruit and vegan protein. Citrus fruit like oranges, grapefruit, lemons, limes and mandarins are at their best in the winter.
Vegan protein naturally improves digestion and absorption. The combination of fibre and protein means it takes your body a while to digest vegan whole foods. The more your body works on metabolising the plant protein, the better your body becomes at burning extra fat.
Contained in the book is a one-week shopping list and plan. If weight loss is your goal, I recommend using this plan for two weeks and beyond.
It does not take into consideration your individual dietary needs and it is highly recommended that you consult your General Family Physician prior to commencing any weight loss plan.
