Lose weight and learn how to love yourself in ten days using Kayla’s structured diet plan.
Kayla Keyes begins to tell us the reasons why we even start to consider making changes in our lives. She believes that there are events that trigger our feelings, for example, separation, moving away from home or getting a new job. Her intentions are not for us to just lose some weight but to also “lose the baggage” she claims, “we are carrying around (externally & internally).”
The whole book is for vegans; that is a no-brainer considering the name of the book clearly states that. However if you are not a vegan, you can still benefit from this book and lose some weight. You just won’t be consuming any meat.
The program provides a shopping list and some aspirational quotes to motivate you and help you succeed. Kayla provides recipes and instructions with every meal. This book is more like a detox plan. You can also continue with the diet plan after ten days if you wish.
The problem I had with the book was that there are no references to how many people have tried this or how successful her regime plan is. There is also no personal information or any story to suggest if she had struggled with weight loss (a reason to write such a book). There is also nothing stating how she even came up with such a diet plan in the book.
What I did like about the book was that she asks you to reward yourself with things that you like such as a spa treatment or a nail appointment, a haircut rather than indulging in fast food. I also liked the fact that she encourages exercise with the program and consistently makes sure that you know losing weight comes with you being happy with yourself. It does not matter what size or shape you wish to be. As long as you are comfortable in your own skin, then it is good enough for everyone else. There are four steps provided by the author to assist you with improvement on your current level of self-love. I believe that is useful for anyone in any condition even if they don’t want to lose weight.
I recommend Weight Loss for Vegans to anyone who wishes to lose weight and also learn a little about self-love.
