Barnard has a plan that will improve your health in three weeks flat, helping you shed pounds and lower your cholesterol. His plant-based diet focuses on reducing your appetite and cholesterol levels and boosting your metabolism--all by choosing the right foods and tweaking your eating habits.
Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin don't mince words: "You are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin, " they remark in a chapter of Skinny Bitch. Sharp-tongued and witty, these women take a rare approach to dieting: They make it fun. Burn calories while you laugh through their book, then put your weight-loss plans in action with their guidance, kicking off a new lifestyle that incorporates whole grains, fruits, and veggies. Psst ... for the man in your life, consider the pair's manly manifesto, Skinny Bastard.
Blonde bombshell Alicia Silverstone may have played a dim-witted daddy's girl in Clueless, but the vegan actor and activist is no dummy. Advising dieters through personal anecdotes of swearing off meat and dairy products, Silverstone's book makes the perks of a plant-based diet--weight loss, clear skin, high energy, and smooth digestion--ring loud and clear. The Kind Diet makes cruelty-free cuisine a possibility for people at all levels of compassionate consumption, from flirting with veganism to becoming a cruelty-free superhero.
Vegans aren't born munching on vegan Boca burgers and gulping down soy strawberry yogurt--the lifestyle is a choice. For author Kathy Freston, that choice came in her 30s after three decades of chicken fried steaks, barbecue ribs, and vanilla milkshakes. Now she's living proof that anyone can make the switch to a cruelty-free diet. With a "baby-steps" approach to dieting, Freston makes slimming down through vegan eating easy. Her step-by-step guide will ease you into your weight-loss goal, nudging you across the finish line with exercise ideas, recipes, and real-life testimonials.
Riffing off the famous words of Malcom X, this vegan guide for African-American women tells ladies how to look their best, ward off health problems, and slim down while keeping their curves. Eighty percent of African-American women are overweight, putting them at an increased risk for heart disease, strokes, and diabetes. With more than 40 recipes and menus to help you transition to a vegan lifestyle, author Tracye Lynn McQuirter shows the path to changing that statistic. Written for African-American women but applicable to women of all backgrounds, this book is a must-read for anyone transitioning away from an omnivorous diet.

I am trying to lose some weight (20ish lbs). I am wokring out 5 times a week and I am going to begin seeing a trainer to help me stay on track.
I know that to lose weight you must also change your diet. I am a vegetarian (no meat, chicken, etc... once in a great while I will have fish). My dilema is that as a vegetarian, I end up eating a ton of pasta and cheese and stuff. I try to eat lots of salads too... but usually I have salad for lunch and by dinner I am burnt out on "bunny-rabbit food".
Does anyone have any book recomendations for a good vegetarian weight loss diet? I dont want a crash diet, I want to change the way I eat in a healthy way so I can lose weight now and maintain my weight later

His older "Rotation Diet" book was always my gold standard for quick weight loss. This newer book is a great diet in itself but also includes a revision of his classic rotation plan along with his new plan and a vegetarian one too if that's your preference.
The diet is geared around high content/low fat foods like whole grains, veggies and lean meats.
You get around 30 grams of fat per day on the regular program and on the tougher rotation program you get 1,000 calories a day and 20 grams of fat or less, but you would only do it for a few weeks.
It's an older book and available at libraries, it really is the best diet I've ever done.

Sounds as if you're not vegan, but are lacto-ovo vegetarian (eat eggs and dairy products). Both are good sources of nutrients otherwise hard to come by from plant sources alone (protein, B vitamins, and if you choose the right products, Omega-3 fats). I'd recommend whole eggs over just the whites -- the yolks are actually pretty good for you. Science on cholesterol/dietary fat linked to heart disease seems to be pretty weak from my understanding (interesting book on this, Good Calories, Bad Calories, by Gary Taubes
