21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart Review | by Dr. Neal Barnard


Would you give up meat and dairy in order to affect real, long-term weight loss? It's a topic I've noticed receiving more exposure lately – for example, I've seen veganism discussed on Oprah, Ellen, and Dr. Oz all in the past few months.

Dr. Neal Barnard is an old expert in the field, and in his book 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart: Boost Metabolism, Lower Cholesterol, and Dramatically Improve Your Health.

Barnard suggests that a vegan diet is the answer to long-term weight loss. Barnard promotes a well-rounded diet which does not include meat or dairy products in conjunction with a wide variety of tips and tricks, aimed at helping to lose weight and promote overall health.

How Does 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart Work?

Below is a short but very enlightening video as to the way that the "21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart" works. In  this video some experts including a doctor describe the ingredients that are the base for this wonderful and healthy, vegan diet.

The 17 Day Diet Review: A Doctor's Plan | by Mike Moreno

Weight loss is about the numbers that we’d like to see on a scale, and perhaps that's why recurring numeric themes are incredibly popular in the diet world (Six Minute Abs, anyone?).

The 17 Day Diet: A Doctor’s Plan Designed for Rapid Results presents us with still another numerical diet “buzz word.” Dr. Mike Moreno lays out a diet plan which operates in 17 day cycles and purports to make lasting, sustainable weight loss possible.

How Does The 17 Day Diet Work?

Below is an incredible video presented by the author of "The 17 Day Diet" Mike Moreno himself in which he explains the way that his book works. He elucidates in a very good way that with his book anyone can achieve weight loss in a healthy and sustainable way. In this video many satisfied users give their testimonials as well.

Aside from the numerical “hook,” The 17 Day Diet: A Doctor’s Plan offers relatively few gimmicks. There are no ironclad diet plans laid out, but rather a set of common sense guidelines intended to lead the reader down the path to real weight loss.

The 4-Hour Body Review: An Uncommon Guide | by Timothy Ferriss

We’ve all heard the miracle diet claims before, but The 4-Hour Body may just top them all. Is it really possible to achieve lasting results from a diet and exercise plan that operates on putting in the minimum possible amount of effort?

The 4-Hour Body has received massive amounts of attention from both the media and the weight loss community. Is it really possible that Ferriss’ weight loss and exercise regimens could work?

How Does The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide Work?

In the video below, the author of "The 4-Hour Body" Timothy Ferriss himself appears in a very popular TV show and he gives a very thorough analysis of how each of the 4 hours described in his book works.

Ferriss structured The 4-Hour Body in the same way as his previous book, The 4-Hour Work Week, in that he researched the absolute minimum of effort or time required to make a particular exercise or dietary recommendation effective. This is a major part of what is appealing about his plan: anyone can fit a few hours a week or exercise into their daily lives, and the majority of us are looking to lose weight, gain muscle, or both.

Now Eat This! Diet Review by Rocco DiSpirito

For many of us, the hardest thing about losing weight is swearing off our favorite foods. I know that I personally recoil at the very thought of giving up French fries or snicker-doodle cookies -- the horror! However, celebrity cook Rocco DiSpirito’s new Now Eat This!

Diet offers an alternative to giving up our favorite foods. In Now Eat This!, DiSpirito offers alternate versions of some high calorie, high fat American favorites. Instead of giving up these treasured foods, is it possible that we can simply revise the recipes?

How Does Now Eat This! Diet Work?

We all know that eating whole, natural, low fat foods is an important step in achieving real, lasting weight loss. So what’s stopping us from doing so? Most Americans continue to eat high fat, heavily processed diets, even after they have this dietary revelation.

DiSpirito believes that offering convenient healthy alternatives to our favorite foods may just be the missing link in achieving lasting weight loss and good health. By revising our current lifestyle to include healthier meals rather than making a massive shift to adopt an entirely new way of eating, we may be more likely to stick with the program and actually drop some pounds for good!

The Dukan Diet Review by Pierre Dukan

Americans look to Europe for many things, including fashion and art trends. But what about weight loss techniques? It is true that many of us envy Europeans, including the French, for their relatively low rate of obesity. I always attributed it to the increased amount of walking that Europeans are known for, but perhaps it has something to do with diet.

That said, perhaps it was inevitable that a weight loss trend based on the eating habits of the French would surface. The Dukan Diet: 2 Steps to Lose the Weight, 2 Steps to Keep It Off Forever claims to offer a way to use secrets the French have seemingly uncovered to lose weight and keep it off. But does it deliver?

How Does The Dukan Diet Work?

Below is a very enlightening video made by person interested in following the Dukan Diet plan which.  This video very accurately shows the way that the Dukan Diet works. The user describes  the different stages and phases that this high protein, low carb and low fat  popular weight loss trend urge anyone to follow.

The Amen Solution Review by Daniel G. Amen, M.D.

In The Amen Solution: The Brain Healthy Way to Lose Weight and Keep It Off, author and physician Daniel G. Amen, M.D., digs deep into why diets and other weight loss tricks do not work for most of us. In my own case,

I’ve tried in vain to lose ten to twenty post-pregnancy pounds by using all of the trendy fad diets like Atkins, Paleo, and South Beach. I’ve tried strict calorie counting and exercise regimens -- could it be that, as Amen suggests, we need to consider changing our core mental concepts concerning weight loss?

How Does The Amen Solution Work?

Below is a thorough description by Daniel G. Amen himself of the simple and easy-to-follow  program that he recommends. This video is also a description of the amazing results this program brings to everyone that decides to follow it.

Daniel G. Amen splits his book into a series of sections concerning weight loss. Some of the sections deal with physical issues, but most are related to mental concepts. For example, the book leads off with a section about understanding the way our brains work, and how our brain type can affect weight loss.

Weight Loss Hypnosis Solution Review by Joshua Seth

It's the eternal question of weight loss. Which is more important: exercise or diet? For many of us, it is more difficult to maintain a nutritious diet low in fat and carbohydrates. But consider this: exercise may require will power, but in terms of time, a typical exercise regimen requires a time commitment of 30 to 60 minutes, three to five times per week.

A typical diet regimen requires our will power and commitment 24 hours a day, seven days a week! Could this be why diets fail so frequently? The Weight Loss Hypnosis Solution provides more than just hypnosis, despite its name. Author Joshua Seth delves into the problems with typical diet plans and tries to help the reader understand the reason why dieting simply does not work.

How Does The Weight Loss Hypnosis Solution Work?

Joshua Seth uses a combination of hypnotic suggestion and practical advice to change the way the reader thinks about weight loss. His book is organized into a series of sections related to this topic, covering subjects as diverse as overcoming emotional eating, re-wiring the way we think about food, and understanding how foods can aid instead of hinder our weight loss.

Buy with a discount

I can’t give away too many details, otherwise what would be the point of buying the book?  The 4 Day Diet is pretty simple though in practice.  The diet is split into multiple 4 day modules.  Each 4 day module is designed for a specific purpose and to prevent plateauing so weight keeps dropping.
