Overview

If you’ve ever dieted, you’ve undoubtedly worked very hard to achieve results—only to experience the frustration of seeing the pounds creep back on.   Now Kathy Freston reveals her secret: losing weight doesn’t have to be a struggle, and it can last. With this book she shares the powerful concept of The Lean—a radically effective and practical 30-day plan—and shows you how to make and commit to small diet and lifestyle changes that, over time, can yield significant results. One step a day—swapping nondairy milk for cow’s milk, eating an apple a day, having an afternoon power shake—can kick-start your forward momentum, lead to ever more healthy choices, and bolster your progress. On The Lean plan, readers can experience sustained, healthy, and permanent weight loss of 1-3 pounds per week—plus increased energy, improved digestion, clearer skin, and renewed purpose. The Lean offers not only the means to a truly leaner frame, but also the little push we all need to get on the path to lasting change. Complete with exercises, recipes, and powerful testimonials.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
New York Times best-selling author Freston (Veganist: Lose Weight, Get Healthy, Change the World) has created a 30-day plan designed to ease readers into a vegan lifestyle. Billed as a way to lose weight, the book describes one small step to take each day to incorporate new behaviors into a healthy lifestyle, thereby crowding out the old, unhealthy behaviors. Each day builds on the previous one; readers may find some behaviors easy to adapt to (e.g., drink water, take vitamins, love yourself a little) and others more difficult (e.g., trade milk and butter for nondairy alternatives, take the animals off the dinner plate). Freston suggests replacing dairy and meat products with plant-based alternatives such as soy, almond, and rice milk and cheese as well as processed soy products such as "plant-based turkey" and "chik'n." The last portion of the book contains sample menus and recipes as well as a resource list of cookbooks and videos. VERDICT For those interested in losing weight and simultaneously adopting a vegan diet, this is an easy-to-follow plan. As with all diets, individual results may vary.—Pauline Baughman, Multnomah Cty. Lib., Portland, OR
