Book Description

Cleanse Your Liver without Fasting
A healthy liver keeps your bloodstream and other organs clean. But when it’s overloaded with toxins from alcohol, caffeine, pesticides, pollution, and artificial sweeteners, the liver can’t function properly. In the 9-Day Liver Detox Diet, nutrition and alternative treatments expert Patrick Holford guides you through his swift, easy-to-implement program for cleansing the liver and improving body function without feeling deprived.
What will a 9-day liver cleanse do for you?
• Boost energy levels                      
• Improve digestion
• Support healthy skin
• Counteract effects of stress
Holford’s safe and effective plan centers on eating foods—such as fish, nuts and seeds, cruciferous vegetables, leafy greens, and more—that superboost your liver’s ability to detoxify. Featuring more than 30 tasty liver-supporting recipes formulated by a nutrition specialist plus friendly real-world examples, like the woman who detoxed to get rid of acne in time for her wedding day, this targeted regimen will bring health and balance to your body without fasting and without disrupting your normal routine.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! June 25, 2011
By Tiffany
I'm on day 5 and feel great! I ate pretty decent before I started this detox so I haven't experienced any withdrawal symptoms(I don't drink coffee or pop)and I haven't even had any cravings surprisingly, since I eat my fair share of bread, meat, and sweets. I can't say there has been a huge change in how I feel but I also feel good knowing that I'm eating really healthy and giving my liver a break. I take a lot of Excedrin Migraine for headaches and I know it isn't good for me so that is why I started this program to begin with.
The best thing about this book is the recipes! Even if you don't go on the detox, I recommended this book just for the healthy recipes. I wasn't expecting a whole lot as wheat, salt, sugar, meat, eggs...are all cut out for the most part. To my surprise, everything has been super delicious. I will keep using these recipes and the new food I've never used before long after the detox.
Start-up is slightly costly in the way of the supplements. Thankfully there are not too many you have to take as I hate taking pills period. But I am saving so much money by not going out to eat! There is a lot of cooking involved too. I don't work so I have time but if you do, you will have to do a lot of the cooking at night for the next days lunch. The recipes are easy and actually really fast to make so that is a plus. You will need a blender and a food processor which I already had but I did decide to buy a new juicer as well (you don't have to but you won't be able to have the vege juices; they are not used as a meal or snack, just extra). I always wanted one anyway, so that was my splurge.
Even if you don't care about focusing on your liver in particular, this book is a great way to give your body a healthy break from all the junk we eat. It really has made me look closer at the things I eat too. My whole family will end up benefiting from this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice book! I took it and read it without resting... August 20, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, I did not know about the fact that while we are having fun our liver is having trouble....It is quite interesting when reading about the processes of desintoxication. The theory about the diet is simple, just eat foods that make your liver work better to be able to get rid of the waste that you already have in your body....I like the writing style and also the the guide for cooking... :) Really happy with this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but you have to improvise June 15, 2013
By Lakeman
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is well written and well reasoned. It's not dodgy science and it treats the reader as an adult.

I've tried the regime twice, and both times have felt positive results. Some of the recipes and tips e.g. the seed mix, the super greens mix etc I use even when not on the diet. The main benefits have been some weight loss, generally feeling more motivated, energetic and alert.

The downside for me is that I find it impossible to stick to the detailed recipe plan while working 9-5. I don't have the time or facilities to whip up some of the lunches or easily keep the snacks available.

But does this matter? I'm not sure that it does. If you can, and want to, follow the recipe plan to a tee, good for you. I think the value in books like this is that they force you to rethink your habits and to adopt some new ones long term e.g. cutting out, or reducing, processed foods and caffeine. I've found it hard to cut out wheat and milk products from my diet outside the 9 days but I have to say that I suspect those 2 changes alone would make a significant difference to one's sense of wellbeing and alertness.

The other problem for me was that I spent a lot of money stocking up on the foods in preparation for the recipes -- and then, as mentioned, didn't actually use a lot of them. (However they included a lot of canned or dried goods that I was able to use up eventually.)

I would recommend this book, but say that people shouldn't get too anxious about following the 9 days exactly as set out. There is nothing wrong in repeating the same breakfast more often than others, if you prefer it. And there's nothing wrong in throwing together a totally different combination of veggies as long as they belong in the same categories as the ones recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars hard but effective November 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like most detoxes, this one isn't easy. It means a total change of life style but you can cope with it a lot better because it is only for a short period. You don't really see or feel the benefits until after you have finished: better digestion, no feeling of fullness and swelling or flatulence. Do a good shop before you start as this will stop you substituting anything on the diet. The hardest bit is very few proteins.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you work full time...choose another option October 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really excited about trying this program, but it fell flat quick. The amount that I spent on groceries alone for just those 9 days was ridiculous. Having to make EVERY meal ahead of time just didn't work for me. I also found it hard to eat so much. I ate the recommended amounts, and I always felt bloated and stuffed. I followed the diet to the tee, and didn't notice any change except that I lost a ton of sleep. Maybe that was me getting more energy, but waking up at 2am every morning didn't really help me through the day. My digestion didn't improve, in fact it actually was worse after. The only positive change I noticed was that I lost 2 inches in my hips. No weight loss, no loss anywhere else though. However, keep in mind that this detox does not claim to be a weight loss diet either. If you work from home or have the ability to be home to make the meals, this might work for you, but as someone who works full time and always on the go, this didn't work for me.
