21-Day Intermittent Fasting Weight Loss Plan: Recipes, Meal Plans, and Exercises for a Healthier You
by Andy DeSantis RD MPH, Michelle Anderson

4 out of 5 stars

The book begins with an introduction section with general advice and information on fasting, its health benefits, and how to plan fasting for your body type and nutrition needs. There are some physical exercises you can do to lose weight with illustrations that show how to do the exercise.

This book provides meal plans for 21 days, and 75 recipes to help readers lose weight and easily cook delicious meals. There is a list of pantry essentials to help you put together your grocery shopping list. One chapter has tips for creating a long-term routine, what to do about snacks, how to establish dietary patterns so that your body knows when to be hungry.
The recipes include smoothies, soups, salads, vegan main dishes, poultry, seafood, beef and pork main dishes, and some snacks. The recipes look delicious, and the instructions are easy to follow, and include wonderful information about the nutritional value, and whether the recipe is dairy-free, nut-free, vegan, or gluten-free. There are also tips for substituting ingredients or making ahead and storing the food.

There is some great information in here for anyone who is interested in trying out intermittent fasting, and I like how it has a plan for gradually introducing this practice into your daily habits in a healthy and mindful way.
