When it comes to losing weight, making your diet plan simple to follow is one of the factors that makes it work!
The idea of making things as easy as possible is a major theme throughout Kristy Alford’s books based on her own experience of not being able to stick to things long term.
“I was three years into following a Ray Peat style diet and was loving the benefits,” author Kristy Alford said, “I’d written the ZEN Beach Diet and loved using the easy measuring system. But I started to get frustrated at the amount of fruit I’d have to cut up all the time and grating all the blooming carrots. I was staring in the fridge starving but didn’t want to cook elaborate meals!”
So in the effort to simplify things even further, the 3 Day Summer RESTART was written. It breaks the meal down into the bare essentials of getting the right macros. So it makes it super easy for those who work a lot, or are just busy all the time.
You cook once and have all meals done for 3 days. Then you sit back, relax and remove all stress around food entirely. It even includes a shopping list!
Here are some benefits others have found already:-
I feel really full but I’m losing weight, how is that possible?
It’s so refreshing not to have to think about what I’m eating for 3 days
I feel really satiated, like my nutrients are being met
Finally my body is happy
I found the Ray Peat diet confusing, this made it so much easier
My energy is so much more consistent throughout the day
I already have the ZEN Beach Diet and it’s a fantastic resource with lots of recipes but this just helped everything click for me in terms of weight loss
It feels like my meals are better balanced now, I would never have eaten this much protein at the start of the day before
I didn’t realise how much it was stressing me out having to constantly think of what to eat
A surprising benefit is that I’m more regular, is that the juice focus doing that?
More of what others had to say…
“I thought I was eating 1,800 calories before but I mustn’t have been as the weight is just dropping now.” – Rita A.
“I have officially lost 8 & 1/2 lbs in 3 weeks. This is not a small amount for me. I have been trying unsuccessfully to lose weight for about 6 years. After getting incredibly sick, my body just did not want to release the weight. Until now… This plan is working so well for me.
I have had two other folks in my health coaching group try it. One girl lost 8 lb in 2 weeks. And another girl lost 5 lb in the 3 days.
“I have a lot (50-60kg) of weight to lose and feel confident that your books will make the process much easier than in the past. My major downfall has always been planning which you have also made fool proof.
I was done with all the extreme diets like keto and vegan that cut out so much lovely food. Then there was the challenge of trying to get my family to eat the same way…it never lasted very long.
I just wanted to thank you again for putting so much of your time into your books to make this process easy and affordable for people like me.“ – Bunny G.
“I’m doing this 3 days of every week just to make life easier for myself. Also while I’m generally sticking to the 1,800 cal ZEN Beach Diet plan, for some reason it doesn’t seem to have the weight loss effect that this 3 day plan does for me. Not sure why but I love it!” Lindsay Z.
“Omg WOW!!!! Your books keep getting even more amazing!!! (If that’s even possible!) It’s so beautiful! I opened it while with my friend at work and she was blown away too by the gorgeous design and layout and photos, and we hadn’t even read any words yet…!! “ KD
“I’ve enjoyed the Summer RESTART recipes so much that that I’m making them every week! Also the HIIT workouts have been wonderful too.” Courtney G.
“Using her books has made it possible for me to lose weight for the first time in years! I’m down 12lbs since I started a few months ago and feel great! I also love eating the foods that are recommended, they are delicious!” Grace O.
“I’ve lost 9 lbs in 3 months. Have more energy, lots less pain/inflammation, sleeping better too.”Aleena S.

The Zen Beach Diet is a detailed guide of Kristy Alford’s experiences with the Dr Ray Peat style of eating.
After eating low carb/keto for 10 years, she realised it was no longer working. Weight was coming back on, she was feeling cold all the time and her hair started to fall out. Kristy sought further answers and found the work of Dr Ray Peat.
After researching, experimenting and eating this way for nearly four years now, Kristy has finally found her answers. It was about fine tuning the calorie level, balance of macros and types of food to maximise her health, metabolism and finally reach the weight loss goal she desired.
The book includes information, food guides, a how to build your own meal plan formula as well as a 7-day meal plan and new recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Kristy says, “Many of the resources on Ray’s way of eating give the general guidelines, but no-one tells you specifically WHAT to eat and HOW MUCH to eat. This is where the Zen Beach Diet book fills the gap.”
Beautifully photographed by her husband and professional photographer Adrian Alford, it features a stunning collection of beaches from around the world.
Enjoy the amazing view as you learn how to finally get your health and weight on track and into the Zen Beach vibe.
Priced at only AU$9.95 (US$6.65, £5.15), it’s a PDF file of 34 mb and is available for immediate download now.
“I love it! Such an easy concept to follow and the pictures are stunning. Feeling better already.” – Lindy Z.
“Easy plan, easy recipes. Love the way she incorporates fruit into everything.” – Rita A.
“Ray’s information and education is amazing but I could never find it all in just the one spot, so this book is amazing!”– E.D.
“Yep I have bought this recipe book and can safely say we are given fabulous recipes with lots to eat. I feel very well fed plus the gorgeous photography images are sunny and cheery!”– Lisa W.
“You are to be commended on putting the basics in one easy reference for sure! This isn’t easy to simplify at all! Very, very helpful” Marcine P.
“I am really enjoying the Zen Beach Diet. Great info in it and easy to understand.“ J.V.
“I’ve been trying to follow a pro-metabolic diet for years but it didn’t click until I started working with Kristy and reading her books – the Zen Beach Diet is SO simple and easy to understand and makes me feel like I can do this. With Kristy’s help, I’ve been able to get my temperatures back to where they should be and feel more energized. Thank you, Kristy!” – Rachel B.
“What a gorgeous book, it’s such a delight to read and use.The pictures are amazing, it’s beautifully written and easy to follow.I love all of Kristy Alford’s books and I think The Zen Beach Diet is her best book so far! Very inspiring! – K.D.
“I recently purchased the Zen Beach Diet book and Sweet Treats. Both of these books contain great recipes and break down the macro nutrients for each meal/snack. When I’m out of ideas for what to make, I pull out your books for easy meals and snacks that also hit my nutrient needs (especially protein!) I also recommend both books to my clients because you follows the principles I teach. Recipe development is NOT my favorite thing to do, which is why I am so grateful for the diligent, hard work you’ve put into these resources, Kristy. Thank you!”
“While I am pretty new to the Peaty way of eating, (about 2 months now,) I have all three of your Peaty books and am having great success with gradual changes and love your perspective of watching the fat and calories so I don’t blimp out!
So far, I have lost 10 pounds, feel so much less bloated and never felt like I was on a diet but rather quite satisfied. I can totally eat this way the rest of my life and my only hunger is to learn more about this way of eating.
Truly though it has been MOST helpful to ‘see’ the Ray Peat plan simply laid out in your Zen book with the information and daily food plan. Can’t say enough how much this has helped me and I always refer back to it.
After on and off again dieting and interests in nutrition, etc., since my teens, I can wholeheartedly say, I’ve finally found it…what really works to keep me healthy, balanced & happy.” – Jen H
“I also want to thank you for writing an excellent book. It really explains things well. I guess I didn’t realize one needed to eat that much fruit at a meal.
I think as simple as your food measurement method might sound, it is brilliant. It does make this way of eating easier. I don’t want to have to count my macros.” – J.F.
I frequently get asked what I eat in a day. So I thought I would document it, to help others out.
Note I have updated this to reflect the fact that I am not doing super low fat of 20g a day (or 10% of calories any more.) Click here to read why this came about.
So overall I aim for 1,800 calories – 100g protein, 40g of fat and the rest carbs per day. I won’t always hit these targets, as measuring and counting every ounce of food I eat is not conducive to a balanced, happy life for me. However every quarter or so, I plug everything into cronometer.com to see what’s what, and if anything needs adjusting.
So I was perusing instagram as I like to read other people’s stories about how they live healthy lives or tackle weight loss and there was one profile that caught my eye for all the wrong reasons. Let’s call her Weight Watchers Wendy.
Kristy Alford has now written six health books tackling different areas of health based on her studies and experiences.
