Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author, a 30-day plan to a leaner body

In the follow-up book to her bestselling Gorgeously Green, Sophie Uliano reveals the secrets to getting slim while being good to the planet . It turns out that eating local, organic, foods doesn't have to be expensive, and a healthy meal can be made in 30 minutes or less, all while shedding pounds.

In her relatable, girlfriend-to-girlfriend tone, Uliano pledges that anyone can go green and lean, no matter where they live or what resources they have. Uliano recognizes that dieting and going green are big lifestyle changes and makes it easy for readers to commit to both by allowing them to personalize their plans according to their needs. The book has three diet plans-light green, bright green and deep green- that depend on how much time, travel, and money readers want to commit to going green. The three plans promise the same amount of weight loss, but the darker green the plan is, the greater the commitment the reader makes to reducing waste, going organic and staying carbon neutral.

Each diet plan emphasizes natural, seasonal, whole foods that are not only better for the planet, but better for the body. Uliano explains how over-processed, over-produced foods contain fewer nutrients, are harder to digest and are more likely to be stored as fat. With 4-week eating plans for each shade of green, she shows readers how to wean themselves off of processed, manufactured foods and onto fresh vegetables and meat. The book recommends products, brands and websites and has over 100 recipes-every tool readers need to get lean while going green.

    Good Primer for Healthy Eating

    There is a lot of information in Gorgeously green Diet about healthy eating and it is useful for those people used to eating processed food. Uliano, who wrote Gorgeously Green and appeared on Oprah, writes: "Unless the food you eat is minimally processed and packaged, unless its Gorgeously Green--it is likely to be lacking in vitamins and loaded with toxins that could inhibit metabolism and lead to obesity."

    Uliano discusses how making even small changes in ones diet can help impact the health of the planet. She advocates "moderation," and tells the reader that she is a flexatarian.

    She offers three diets in different shades of green--light, medium and dark. Each diet covers a week's worth of menus.

    There is a section on composting and gardening.

    According to Uliano, a 2007 Cornell University study showed that an all vegan diet had more effect on the planet than a diet containing a daily 2 ounce serving of meat.

    The book outlines how to select the best types of food--grass fed beef, vs. feedlot, for example. This is very useful for newbies and she covers virtually all choices.

    Suggestions are made on how to pick food at a restaurant and include a variety of places.

    She suggests what to get rid of in the pantry and what to stock.

    There was a chapter on cooking the basics likes stocks tomato sauce--all perfect for beginners.

    There is a section on fitness, beauty & health and what vitamins to take.

    One chapter was on inviting your dream guests for dinner--I found it bizarre--and her list included Shakespeare, Jesus, Julia Roberts and Oprah. Somehow, can't see that group together...

    There is a nice sized section of recipes. The book concludes with resources on where to find food that Uliano likes and it is quite helpful for those unaccustomed to grocery shopping outside the traditional stores.

    I do question her authority on some of the statements she makes, as she is neither a doctor nor a nutritionist,but her diet recommendations seem fine and are certainly not extreme.

    Uliano covers a lot of ground in this book on food and recipes. I would like to recommend a couple other books to supplement:

    For 100's of vegetarian recipes, award winner,VEGETARIAN COOKING FOR EVERYONE
    For growing your own, THE VEGGIE GARDENER'S ANSWER BOOK
    To green & make gorgeous your home, award winner, HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT BEAUTIFY, DETOXIFY & ENERGIZE YOUR LIFE, YOUR HOME & YOUR PLANET
    For do it your selfers, ORGANIC BODY CARE PRODUCTS

    The most information in one book

    I LOVE THIS BOOK! I joke with my husband that it is my bible. So much information, and so useful. The diet is easy to follow, but if the diet isn't your thing the book is packed full of "becoming green" ideas. This has been the best book purchase in a long time.

    Informative, but not perfect

    This book has some good information. The format is not consistent which bothers me. Some of the recipes are unclear. A lot of the info is a repeat from her first book. The book I recommend below is much more scientific and accurate
