I love this book. i love kris carr! but i am really disappointed in the kindle version of this book...there are more than a handful of pages that include testimonials, the "diet" plan, lists of GI foods, the dirty doze/clean fifteen etc that I can barely read even with a magnifying glass (and believe i have tried). You can enlarge the font on every other page but these pages therefore there is no way to read the itty bitty writing...which means although i paid for the book I can't read a lot of it, including all the info on the 21 day cleanse (the heart of the book). I don't have the money to go out and buy the book again so...not sure what i can do. But regardless...i am really inspired with what I have read!!

Ok, I didn't realize how famous this book was when I first got it. Apparently it's a brand with a documentary and Oprah and everyone else behind it. Sorry, I didn't realize that.

I picked it up recently because it was on sale and I was looking for some diet/nutrition books that were women-friendly and wife-friendly, and upbeat. I was looking for something inspiring to stick with the program since I have four kids and a busy life, and have tried whole food diets many times without being able to stick to them long term.

In that area, Kris Corr delivers. She is upbeat and encourages you to stick to the program. What I didn't realize from the front cover was that it was going to be a book on how to become a vegan. It also includes all the more radical steps like enemas, colonics, kale smoothies, dry brushing, neti (sinus irrigation), etc. I am not sure I would have picked it up if I knew that, since I was looking for more of the moderate whole food approach. She's also anti-gluten, anti-chemical (i.e. anti coffee, anti-alcohol, anti-prescriptions, anti-Maybelline) and pro-raw. This may not be doable for everybody. Still, she does make it sound compelling and offers ideas of how to start. And she does give ideas if you're going to compromise a little. She says she still has a bottle of Advil in her cabinet for emergencies and makes a point to talk about enjoying your life, even when that means a glass of wine here or there. So I appreciated that.

I also appreciated her section on alkalinity. It made a lot of sense and had some great tips on how to begin alkanalizing your body. She did say radical things like oats and brown rice weren't as healthy for you, which always raises a yellow flag for me.

I'd like to start by saying that I find Kris Carr to be inspiring, empowering and amazing. She has helped me in many ways on my journey with "incurable" cancer. That said, I had to give this book a low rating because the dietary information is simply not accurate. I learned the hard way that a vegetarian diet is not optimal or even safe for all of us. Let me explain...

Two years ago, in August of '09, I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, incurable cancer of the bone marrow. I declined conventional medicine and did the Gerson Therapy for two years. It involves 12 vegetable juices a day, coffee enemas and a fruit/vegetable vegan diet; no salt, limited spices, very strict. After two years on the therapy, my disease was stable (it worsened the first few months and then held stable) and I was exhausted. I couldn't figure out why I was so tired. I had encouraged my friends to drink green juice and some of them experienced incredible energy highs; yet, I drank four green juices a day for two years and was exhausted.

Since I didn't feel well and I hadn't improved, I switched to the Gonzalez protocol, another alternative cancer therapy that I read about in Suzanne Somers' Knockout book. Dr. Gonzalez told me to eat red meat 4-5 times per week plus butter, eggs and dairy; all organic, of course. He prescribes a different diet for everyone based on genetics; some patients are on plant based, raw diets and others eat red meat three times a day. I happen to be in the middle of the vegetarian/carnivore spectrum so I eat a variety of plant and animal foods. Once I moved from a plant based diet to a diet that includes a lot of red meat and other animal products, my cancer began melting away. It is amazing and I am thrilled! You can read about it at [...

I use this book as a guide, not The Bible. There are parts I skipped that I didn't want to read--animal cruelty in the meat industry (had enough of that when I read Fast Food Nation), meditation/yoga (my idea of meditation is taking a walk alone and I am not a yoga fan). But the book is full of great info and it's nice to have it all in one place.

I'm on Day 5 of the cleanse, which I started b/c I've been eating horribly for the past year. I cheated and had a big piece of cake at my friend's birthday party last night, and let me tell you, I woke up this morning and felt like vomiting. So maybe the cleanse is working.

Again, I use the book as a guide. So I still use the microwave, even though I'm not supposed to. I'm not going to kill myself about it. Also, if you don't make much money and have a family to support this is going to seem like an expensive plan. If you don't live near a Trader Joe's (for cheap cleanse staples like almond butter, nut milk, etc.) and a place that sells inexpensive produce, this is not going to work. Making juices every day will take at least an extra hour out of your day to prep and clean, and I'm not sure how I'm going to make it for another 2 weeks while working.

One interesting thing about this cleanse is that I feel beyond full, prob. from all the roughage. You will definitely not be, and should not be hungry. But I find myself thinking about bread a lot, not so much for the taste, but for the texture in my mouth. Rice/corn/nut crackers seem to take the edge off a bit but it's definitely not the same!
