Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Americans seem to be suffering an epidemic of chronic fatigue. Some of this can be attributed simply to lack of sleep, particularly in the Eastern time zone, where 11 p.m. is the end of prime-time television. Also highly suspect are the many additives in much of the food we eat and toxins in the air we breathe. Lipman—founder and director of New York's Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, whose patients include Kyra Sedgwick and David Letterman—here presents a six-week program to detoxify, change eating habits, work daily exercise into one's schedule, and support those who are trying to clean up our environments. Similar in scope to Woodson Merrell's The Source (forthcoming in October 2008), Lipman's book includes notes on the studies he cites, which improves his credibility. Rather than a separate cleansing regimen, Lipman incorporates his detoxification into the complete program, recommending a gradual removal of various foods as well as the addition of yoga stretches and movements. Buy either of these two excellent titles.—Susan B. Hagloch, formerly with Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, OH

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very good book for those that are truly tired all the time. It has common sense, but sometimes unknown ideas for you to try. Exp: I did not know that turning on the light to go to the restroom at night stops melatonin so you wake up for the rest of the night. Who knew? Ever since I stopped doing that I have slept WAY more soundly and getting up does not turn into an hour plus long battle to go back to bed. Therefore, I feel better and more rested. There are many of these type of suggestions. I also love the shakes! I make up my own recipes and it feels great. I have not felt this alive in a long time!

However, to do ALL of this program would be VERY extreme. It would cost thousands of dollars in equipment, food, supplements, etc... It is very low pressure and he even says if it does not sound like you, then don't do it. I would recommend getting the book and gleaning what works for you and ignoring the rest. Almost anyone can get something very useful out of this book, even if you don't do all of it or you implement it slowly.

Good luck in feeling better! I have been there where you are. I hope this book helps you like it helped me.

When I purchased Dr. Lipman's book I thought, "Finally! I can put an end to my chronic 'spent' feeling." However, a few chapters into the book, I quickly realized I have already been doing/practicing what Dr. Lipman outlines in his book. I have the tools and the knowledge base - reading Dr. Lipman's book was like taking a refresher course. Perhaps this is due to the fact that I have always had an interest in health/nutrition. At home, I have a whole library of books about the very topics Dr. Lipman outlines in his book, such as eliminating dairy and wheat/gluten from one's diet. I also agree with the reviewer who wrote that the website is a disappointment and a vehicle by which Dr. Lipman can sell supplements. Do not waste your time on the website unless you want to shell out lots of money for supplements you could find on your own at a local health food store.

If you live under a rock and have absolutely no clue about how to eat healthy or how different foods affect your body, then by all means buy this book but if you already have a strong working knowledge of how to eat and care for you body so that it is operating at its optimum, then save your money.

In closing, I did find Dr. Lipman's recipes, especially those for the protein smoothies to be outstanding. He recommends putting avocado in your smoothie (in place of a banana). My initial reaction was skepticism, but I tried it and it is fantastic! It made my protein smoothies creamy and delicious. I made copies of all the recipes in the book and placed them into my recipe binder at home because I do feel they are worth keeping; however, I am going to try and sell the book as I do not see the need to hang on to it.

I couldn't figure out what was wrong. I'd always been a person with a great deal of energy, could multi-task like crazy, and didn't need much sleep. My kids called me "battery pack." Then, all of a sudden, I began to feel exhausted, could hardly stay awake while reading or at a movie. I developed all sorts of physical symptoms I had never had....backaches, anxiety, and as much as I tried to lose weight despite exercising and dieting, it just wasn't happening. I asked myself "am I getting old and is this what it feels like?" I decided there had to be a way to address how I was feeling, and it wasn't with pills. I bought Dr. Frank Lipman's book Spent which I found to be straight forward, and very user friendly...not daunting. The book is written as if Dr. Lipman were talking to me one on one. He described exactly how I was feeling, truly Spent. I read the book and began a journey to heal myself, which was not overly complicated and was a step-by-step approach I could follow. I began feeling better, respecting my body's rhythm. I began to nourish myself, physically and spiritually, and even got back into yoga. I'm sleeping better, eating better, enjoying friends and family and finding more time for laughter. And yes, some of the unwanted pounds have come off. No, I am not getting older, I am becoming more and more alive.

I finished my six week Spent program two weeks ago along with my boyfriend and two best friends. We are all feeling great, looking great, sleeping better and are really tuned in to what's working for us. I thought the book was brilliant and Frank Lipman is an educated, understanding and gentle guide. Go to Trader Joe's for your supplies! I got everything I needed and had a smaller grocery bill than my local supermarket so don't be scared off by the shopping list. Now the practice seems easy and has become how we eat and how we live. I for one am off cow milk and wheat and my body loves me for it. And my biggest sacrifice, no TV after 10:00 has become part of my regular routine (most nights)... and I am sleeping well and waking RESTED for the first time in years.
The chapters about forgiveness and acceptance and touch are what's been missing from everything else I've read or tried and they were really beautiful. These practices are as important to restoring health as what foods you do or do not put into your body. This is not just a book for "health nuts" or whoever else you might think. The guys in my life who did it have never followed any kind of "program" before. Now it's what they do, they feel fantastic and have each dropped over fifteen pounds. Don't hesitate to buy this wonderful book.
