Product Description

Review

VegNews.com, 2/23/12
“We’re already huge fans of Ani Phyo’s raw-food cookbooks, so it’s only natural that we’re stoked for her newest uncooked cookbook. Fat Blast answers your questions and concerns about a raw diet, and, if you’re looking to slim down, offers an easy, all-raw plan that will help you lose up to 15 pounds in 15 days. Losing weight while enjoying sushi and dessert? That sure beats the Master Cleanse.”

Taste for Life, June 2012
“If you’ve been putting off plans to trim down, Ani Phyo contends that her plan can help you drop 15 pounds in 15 days. While claims like these generally sound impossible and gimmicky, Chef Ani calls on nature’s fast foods—raw ingredients….[that] can boost immunity and reduce unwanted weight.”

Tucson Citizen, 6/11/12
“The program embraces what Ani calls nature’s fast food, namely raw ingredients straight from the refrigerator or shelf that require very little prep time. From Trail Mix cookies that are loaded with nuts, raisins, and sunflower seeds, to a Spicy Bok Choy Soup, the dishes are exciting and innovative.”

BlogCritics, 8/23/12
“A well-researched book on nutrition and dieting containing very interesting food preparations which are high in nutrients and lower in calories than the standard junk foods.”

I am not a raw food vegan and I enjoyed this diet. I have been stuck at the same weight for about a year and back in January I noticed it starting to go up, and there was little I could do to control it. For those who are not aware of the trend, you don't have to be 100% raw food vegan to go raw. Something as making a simple conscious effort as adding a salad at lunch, fresh fruit for a snack, and dinner is considered raw. Raw is about striving to add more whole, uncooked, and unprocessed food to your diet. Most people eat 'raw' without knowing it. I like Ani because she is one of the more moderate Raw advocates out there, even acknowledging sometimes you just need a hot food in area that have colder months(like Canada!).

I lost 14 lbs on this diet in two weeks, pairing it with a boot-camp type workout 5 times a week. I was never hungry (in fact, sometimes I couldn't finish all the food), and my blood stayed level. I finished about a month a ago and the weight has stayed off, in fact by incorporating some of the recipes into my routine I am still loosing weight. The food is very flavorful which is also nice (for all the health benefits you hear about herds and spices I never understood why some diets were so bland). Although I am not going to lie, there were times when I just had to chug some of the soups and smoothies. The one thing you need to invest in is a high speed blender or good quality blender.

Like all of Any Phyo's book, this one proposes delicious recipes. Most of all, all of the recipes are simple, requiring no dehydrating or special tools except for a good blender. She also proposes a 15 day calendar easy to follow. For now, I have tried 7 recipes and liked all of them.

I bought this book 2 years ago, shortly after it came out. I geared myself up, and followed the whole 15 days to a tee. I don't know how much weight I lost (don't own a scale), but it did work. I definitely got lighter and tighter, and it was most noticeable after about 7 days in (my tummy was flat!). I didn't keep the weight off forever, but then, I don't eat raw or even super great everyday, so that's to be expected.

What I loved about the book is that there is so much variety. Some people said some of the recipes aren't so great, and I agree, but at least once that one is done, you know you don't have to have it again! And some are so good that I have a hard time not making it every day (Beauty Berry shake, for example). I did find, while trying some of them on and off again after the 15 days, that it's better (for my tastes) to blend the shakes in the high speed blender for a good 1 full minute. That warms them slightly, though, so then I tried making them ahead of time and let them cool down in the fridge for a couple of hours or even overnight. That way they're cold when you drink them. I put them in a glass and just drink them down, and that makes the "worst" of them much more palatable.

There's also variety in the ingredients, but they're all easy for me to find in a big city. Someone mentioned how it was a hassle to have so many ingredients and that they have the same shake every day. Well, you need a variety of vitamins and minerals, and different combinations thereof to be optimally healthy. So this book does do a good job of that!

I'm on my second time following the guide as-is. 3.5 days in and I've already lost weight. Sometimes after dinner I still feel hungry, but never during the day. There's too much to eat! Also, it's really only the first 3 days that I feel that way. Once the solid food kicks in, it's even harder to eat everything on the list, and last time I didn't even end up eating everything.

My partner and I did this cleanse together, and I will say we felt great. It did really,really, make me wise I had a better blender. I think this whole program would have been more palatable with a Vitamix. As is, it was still fun and educational, it was nice to realize raw is something doable and not tonnes of work. Personally, I just need more variety in my life- so many soups taste the same, even if they have slightly different ingredients. The salads though, I still eat all the time. She has some really great and delectable ideas when it comes to solid food. I would suggest this to anyone who has some background experience with raw food, vegan food, and smoothies, who is looking to challenge themselves and clean up their system.

I have most of Ani's books now and, frankly, this is one of her better ones. While I have enjoyed a number of her recipes in the past, I have found she does like to add quite a bit of oil to some dishes (mainly her soups). In my opinion, her strong point has always been her salads and "mylks". In this book she has added coconut oil and nuts to many recipes; however, there are recommendations for substitutions and/or offending ingredients can simply be omitted. She puts an emphasis on Omega 3s, which ties in well with another book I recently purchased, "Ray and Beyond" and the plan seems well designed. Ani writes in her typical informal style, but this seems to be her way of trying to provide as much info as possible in small bites.

In general, I'm happy I purchased this book and I'm enjoying incorporating the new recipes into my meal planning.
