The authors Kim Barnouin and Rory Freedman, a former model and former modeling agent, claim that a whole food vegan diet will help you lose weight and live a happier and healthier lifestyle.

How it works: Barnouin claims that this diet will not only help you lose weight, but will help you detoxify your body and lead a healthier lifestyle. She also recommends waiting until you are feeling starved before eating, to adjust to the feeling of hunger.
