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.”

As a raw vegan I have found that I stick to the same choices when I shop so my meals and weight have been in a rut.
Many of the Super Foods suggested as bonus additives to the base recipes make me wonder how effective a change I can expect without them. I think I will start with Matcha and add one super food at a time.
The plan is simple. The book is straighforward and I was able to finish reading it in a few hours.
My copy was on pre-order and I wasn't expecting it until May 1st. It arrived after I did my shopping for the week. What I normally buy best fits the Phase 3 recpies and I am making most of the dishes from this phase. They are yummy and filling. I can easily double them up and save some time as the week goes on. I will begin phase 1 next week when I can shop with the convient shopping list in hand.
I reccomend this book. It is my first Ani Phyo book and I chose it over her others because the preview mentioned it would contain the best dishes from her past cookbooks.
I will update my results when I complete the plan as it is designed after the first 15 days.
I am deducting 1 star.
-A few photos of the finished dishes woukd have been nice.
-Some real people before and after photos whould also have added to my confidence in the results the book promises.
-When I went to make my first meal- the Blueberry Blast Smoothie, I checked my pantry for the ingredients as they are listed the night before. I normally use rice milk in my smoothies so I have never used raw nuts in a smoothie before. I used a high-speed blender. When I tasted it, the nuts had broken down to tiny hard pieces. I discovered the nuts should have been soaked in green tea or water overnight, but it's not mentioned with the recipe.

I should start by saying I'm not new to raw foods, I've been eating raw food for the past 7 years on and off. For anyone new to raw a lot of this could be a little overwhelming, lots of food you may never heard of, but don't worry, you can find them in any health food store or online. Upon receiving my book I was a bit disappointed with there being no pictures. I thought maybe some testimonies would help as well, but there weren't any of those either.
I've been on the plan for 8 days now and have lost 4 lbs.
Some of the recipes I *love*, like the Coconut Tomato soup. One of the best soups ever, in my opinion:). The salads are really great too, even my husband loved them. He was eating the Spring Salad and saying over and over how it was the best salad he ever had. I made it with "Thermo Dressing". Some of the other recipes I haven't been crazy about, mainly the smoothies. I can't get used to not putting a banana in my smoothie.. so if they included a banana or nuts (for creaminess) then I was happy with them, otherwise it was like drinking slush-- except the Ginger Mango, which I made with brown rice protein and loved it.
As of today I'm in "Phase 3" where I get to add in more foods and even desserts. This is the phase the weight is supposed to "blast off".. fingers crossed.
I've found this plan easy to stick to, fun to shop for and fun to make the recipes. After reading this book I feel more inspired in general to be healthy. My sweet cravings are diminishing and I suddenly have the urge to do yoga like crazy. Crow pose and headstand finally accomplished. :)
If the book had included photos, testimonies, glossy (or just more substantial) pages I would have happily given 5 stars. The content is very informative, inspiring and effective!

The thing I like best about Ani's 15-Day Fat Blast is that the recipes are simple to make and delicious. I have been following the meal plans in the book for the past few days, and find it very easy to stick with the plan. Since I started, I've already lost a few pounds,and my fasting blood sugar levels are going down. (I'm a Type-2 diabetic.) No hunger - no cravings. I think this book is an exceptional way to introduce people to a high raw diet, because it's so informative, easy to follow, and does not require hours of prep work in the kitchen. Many raw food books out there have very time-consuming complicated recipes that would be particularly intimidating for people new to this diet. Not the case with this one! Although Ani's new book is targeted to people who are new to eating a raw vegan diet, people with more experience with this diet would enjoy it as well, particularly for the refreshing simplicity of the recipes. I highly recommend this title.

I shed 3 pounds during the 15 days. This is definitely not for beginner vegetarians. If you haven't done something like this in the past (A detox), your in for some torture. I believe parts of the book were bologna. I.E., on page 80 when she says, "Most of my test group lost 3 to 5 lbs during Shake It Up (Days 1-3). How does one lose that much weight so quickly? It must have been water weight, however I'm very happy I lost the 3 pounds. Some of the recipes I did not care for, like some soups, grapefruit and mushroom recipes. I just don't care for those ingredients. I wish she had substitutes. So if I couldn't eat the mushroom recipes, I'd just make almond or cashew pate, which was fantastic. Sometimes I would find myself holding my nose and chugging the soup. It worked. I would also get an itch every night for my usual raw chocolate ball, but the urge went away with 1/2 of an avocado and I'd go to bed with my water. I did order the Matcha for around $30 dollars, only to find out later, there's a 2nd harvest Matcha, which is less quality and cheaper, but for smoothies. I just ordered the 2nd harvest.

I don't think I would have been able to do this without my Vitamix. The recipes were super easy and as the days went on, took a little bit more prep work. I really enjoyed spending a 1/2 hour in the evening prepping everything for the next day. I have 2 wet containers and 1 dry. Very easy to blend everything in the morning, put into plasticware and go!

I learned a lot from the book. I'm going to continue to have 3 smoothies a day and 2 very small meals. The smoothies kept my urges way down. I've learned how to prepare a couple days in advance so I don't leave the house hungry or come home hungry and confused. I've also learned how to portion control my food and condiments. And now I finally feel like a healthy vegetarian with greater self esteem. Thank you.
