There is considerable press lately on yet another new diet or eating lifestyle that encompasses parts of the Mediterranean diet along with some other foodstuffs growing in popularity such as kale and quinoa to name but two.  The growing popularity of gluten free eating and Greek yogurt’s healthful aspects adds another layer to what can be a confusing roadmap for healthy eating.  Authors Steven, M.D. Masley, Jonny, PhD Bowden that these seemingly new food choices and lay out a plan that explains, encourages and sets up an easy to follow plan to lose weight and gain health.

In three parts Masley and Browden present their data, needed information and an easy to follow life-style plan.  Part one begins by explaining key facts about smart fat and less than good for you fat in plain, simple and understandable language.  Part Two gives you the “Smart Fat Solution” and an easy to follow thirty day eating plan.  Part Three takes you into your future with smart eating and some really tasty sounding recipes.

The thirty day meal plan is laid out in an easy to follow manner that requires seemingly little preparation day-to-day for busy lives.  The recipes, which I have yet to try, are not only simple to prepare and sound mouth-watering.  Lists of cooking items and food prep spices and staples to stock up on are listed in check-list manner.  Dishes such as Cucumber with Smoked Oysters and Avocado and Asian Pear, gorgonzola cheese, walnuts and Raspberries immediately caught my eye.

I read the e-book for review and bookmarked quite a few pages—especially some of the recipes, but definitely will be buying the print version for easier tracking of the 30 day meal plan and the recipes. 

There are myriad diet plans out there and with so many to choose from it’s hard to pick the right one.  Smart Fat seems to take the best of all that are out there, takes out the parts that do not work and explains the different processes that go on in the body in easy to understand language.  It is a simple program to follow and I recommend checking it out.

This is an objective review and an endorsement of this book.
