With a strong focus vegetables, legumes, and grains, this diet plan is very close to a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet. It’s certainly not for everyone. The program starts out by completely eliminating sugar, meat, dairy, and simple carbs. Those who have followed the strict plan have been able to lose weight and get in shape relatively quickly. The plan found in Skinny Bastard is geared towards men. The humorous writing makes it easy to get through, and the program keeps in mind all of the differences that men experience when dieting as opposed to women.

Product Features

Skinny Bastard goes above and beyond most diet books. It teaches you how important food is, and how eating the wrong food can destroy your health. A strong focus is placed on eating local foods or foods that are grown organically. Since you’re cutting meat, dairy, and sugar out completely it will take some time to get used to. The Skinny Bastard program reportedly helps to eliminate toxins from the body, and claims to help prevent many diseases that are believed to be at least partially attributed to poor diets. The workout plans found in the book are designed to help trim and tone in a way that is specific to men. While the program is strict, there is some room for cheating as long as you stay away from meats and dairy.

This way you can slowly eliminate the foods you’re used to eating and still lose weight.
