Customer Reviews

This was a very informative read and easy to follow.
WhyDavis
In fact I believe the author of the book tried to hide many facts about the diet deep inside the book or left them out completely.
R. Farnworth
The procedures recommended in this book changed my life!

I did this cleanse because a friend of mine recommended it and it is one of the best things I've ever done for my body. I did it for 15 days, and yes, I lost 15lbs, but more importantly than the weight I lost my body felt the best it has possibly ever felt.

I've read some of the other reviews, people said it was disgusting or they were hungry all the time, and I should say that I did not follow the regimen to the letter. I bought Naked Juice instead of Martha's Vineyard's juices, I used supplements that I liked, I did a Yogic intestinal wash (Laghoo shankhaprakshalana) instead of enemas, I added a pinch of salt to soups I made that were too bitter, and I ate soups at restaurants when I went out with friends. I think in order to keep from failing you have to allow yourself some wiggle room. The end result was amazing ... my friends all said my skin was glowing, my mood improved, my energy level increased, I wanted to exercise, and I felt fantastic in my body. And when I did start eating again, everything tasted SOOO GOOD! I enjoyed food on a level I never knew was possible.

If I'd followed the cleanse exactly my results could only have been better, but the way I followed it I didn't get hungry, I didn't feel deprived, it wasn't disgusting, and I still got all the benefits. I highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to improve their health, and the bonus is you'll get an improved relationship with your body and with food.

I'm on DAY 6 and I've lost 8.5 pounds!

Having said that, let me add that my success so far has been largely due to my own ingenuity and prior knowledge of the many poorly presented concepts this plan adheres to.

Reading this book, I was amazed at the general negative undertone throughout, especially when combined with the insistently surprising references by both authors to their personal religion and faith. While both authors describe in detail their negative health influences over the years (the book reads like one bad health crisis after another), when it came to the positive elements of their recoveries from these health issues, not much was said. I noticed many opportunities where the authors could have pumped up their dialogue with lively positive feedback to empower their reader, yet did not. It would seem to me, if you want to inspire people to drastically change their habits, playing up the positive would be crucial. By the time I got to the "story" about sisters who died after binging on beer and bar food because they did not come off their 21 day cleanse as prescribed, I was done with the bad vibe this book gives off and was left with the distinct feeling if I ever met the authors in person they'd have dark clouds hovering over their heads.

As well as the book being a downer to read, the majority of the program is presented in a very secretive way. Detailed info on supplements, processes and assured recipes are nearly non-existent (the products can be found on an accompanying website, though what you can expect to get in the detox kits sold here is also vague). Who writes a book to help people, then snatches away all the "help" at the last minute? There's that dark cloud again. Clearly the focus for the authors was on making a buck.

I ordered this after falling for the whole nurturing "Dr. Roni" thing on Sirius with Robin Quivers. After spending over $200.00 for my "kit" and reading the entire accompanying manual, it seems you require ingesting some "enzymes" several times a day -- reportedly a very important part of this. Unfortunately, the "kit" does not include them, and you're left on your own to find them, buy them, ask what they are, etc. The shakes are not satisfying and taste horrendous -- apple, berry, tomato -- it doesn't matter -- all bad. Most of all, you are on your OWN. Roni DeLuz &/or her people don't feel the need to respond to emails with legitimate questions/concerns customers may have once you've paid. Unless she lives in your house and you pay her the big bucks to follow you around, my feeling is this "diet" is smoke & mirrors. Too difficult to do on your own; save yourself the $ and either starve yourself for free or do a more realistic diet a working person can implement into their life.

I obtained a copy of this book after reading ALL of the amazon.com reviews and then also keeping tabs on a couple of blogs where people were actually 'doing' the detox. By the time my copy came in, I was excited to begin reading it because of how well those 'bloggers' were doing.

In short: this is not really a diet. The cover is eye-catching and sure to grab the attention of the diet-conscious crowd, but really what it is is a DETOXIFICATION PROGRAM -- either 2, 7 or 21 days long (your choice). It is very strict -- but in order for it to be a true detox program it would have to be. The author was urged & inspired to write this book after her DETOXIFICATION PROGRAM was discovered by people and then, by word of mouth, sought after -- because of the wonderful side-effect of weight-loss.

You are not required to do any sort of enema or colonic, though it *is* recommended. (I plan to do this part of the program myself, because I have read numerous other sources that recommend it, not the least of which is Edgar Cayce). The point to performing a colonic and/or an enema during the program is this: your body has several waste-disposal systems, your skin, your urine, your feces and mucous. When you are detoxing, your body needs to dispose of this waste somehow. Colonics and Enemas are recommended because they are the quickest and most thorough way of eliminating these toxins from your body. If you don't get rid of them soon enough, they will end up being reabsorbed into your system which means you just wasted a bunch of time and effort and will have to go back to the beginning again, or else find another way to eliminate them.
