I got this book about three weeks ago, right after it came out. At the time I was considering doing one of my semi-annual juice fasts, but kind of wary because, while that used to take off a good 6 pounds or so every time, the last couple of times I did it I didn't lose anything. Depressing! The book I use for my regular juice fasting is Dr. Paavo Airola's book "How to Keep Slim, Healthy and Young with Juice Fasting" which is out of print, but you can get them used online. So after skimming through the Juice Lady's book I thought it would make a good transition diet for after the juice fast. Sure enough, after a week on the juice fast I had lost 8 pounds. Then I transitioned into Cherie's diet. That way, instead of feeling like I was giving up all the foods I loved, I felt like "Oh goody! I get to eat a real apple!" =] I have tried several of her juice recipes and they were yummy. However soaked buckwheat groats...well it ended up in the trash. Won't be doing that one again! After one week transitioning, I have not gained back a single pound (which really means I've lost some, because after a week of juice fasting there is nothing in your intestines and when you start eating again it fills up again, of course.) I am not craving sugar, salt or anything but fruits and vegetables (living foods). I went to the grocery store yesterday, looked at all that nasty processed food and couldn't make myself buy it. Did spend a lot of time in the produce department, though. =] I am not following her diet strictly, so don't know about the losing 10 pounds thing, but I am liking what I am doing right now, and will continue juicing at least once a day. I am juicing fruit, which she does not do if you are strictly on the diet.

The Juice Lady's Turbo Diet(which we could only find on Amazon, after much searching) has provided us with so much information, and we are pleased to have implemented many of the suggested recipes into our diet. Between my husband and myself, we have lost 36 lbs in the past month. Before starting this diet we purchased a juicer and prepared ourselves for the change in our diet and routine. With the proper planning and knowing that we were going to be very focused on this recommended Juice Lady's Turbo Diet as first seen in Womens Magazine Sept/10, we are so happy with the result. We had concerns, wondering if we could go each day with only juice and raw veggies and hummus until supper time, but we enjoy this diet, with no hunger issues or concerns. We both feel fantastic and look so much healthier. Our fitness routines have always been part of our lives, but this weight loss and feeling of being so healthy and full of renewed energy gives us such confidence when moving forward and incorporating this diet into our lifestyle. Knowing that we feel so much healthier on the turbo diet is such a huge gift, after years of trying to find the means to be able to lose weight, and eat healthy at the same time as feeling so fantastic.

While I enjoyed reading this book, it was put together very poorly.

To start, the title is slightly misleading. "Lose ten pounds in ten days". Her meal plan is for 7 days, not 10. (14 if you do both or repeat). Not a big deal, but it should reflect her actual meal plan.

Next, right before her meal plan, she tells you that for at least the first 3 weeks, omit all starchy vegetables such as yams, corn and peas. Then, in her meal plan, she includes yams, corn and peas. Why tell us to omit these things then include them in your meal plan?

She includes a detailed day by day meal plan for the first week. What she doesn't include is a shopping list to go with it. (Jillian Michael's "Master Your Metabolism" provides an awesome shopping plan, which I greatly appreciated).

I had to do this manually and it took forever. I'll paste a partial shopping list below, which amounted to high numbers in certain items, like buying 54 carrots for the first week. That's a lot of carrots...

She tells you that you should juice fast for one day each week. If we're juice fasting for one day each week while following the meal plan, why does she make the meal plan 7 days? It should either be 6 day meal plan + one juice fasting day, or her 7 day meal plan + the juice fast. Either way, I decided to follow the meal plan for the full 7 days, do the juice fast, then repeat the raw foods meal plan, and then juice fast on the 16th day again.

Her meal plan (in my opinion) isn't that great. She includes a lot of obscure items and oversized recipes. For example, she wants me to make 30 some "veggie crackers" according to her recipe. Then, for the meal plan, I'm only supposed to eat one Or, buying a bottle of organic soy sauce so I can use it once in the 7 days.

I hate dieting/ nutrition books with too much fluff. I love good instructions, meal plans, and recipes. This book has it. Of course, there are several chapters of all the positive reinforcement and general info, but it's written well, and chapters with actual plans are easily found.

Got this book in hopes of restoring my health and loosing impossible weight. Steroids have taken their toll, and I can not get the pounds off. The first 7 days I lost 10 lbs, and faster than the book promises. I am into this for only a month and following the juicing directions and have lost 8 inches in my waist. My body is still detoxing and I am beginning a new life! This book is so easy to read, understand and apply to your life. Cherie's really got it figured out! I learned about how the toxins work on your cells and how even if you don't eat, you can still gain fat cells! Get this book if you want to try the easiest way ever to get healthy and restore your youth! I am buying up all The Juice Lady's books! I have turned everyone I know, on to the great process of getting healthy.

More About the Author

Cherie Calbom is passionate about health and healing because she healed her body from debilitating chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyaligia by designing a her own fresh veggie juice and whole foods diet plan. She was so amazed at how her health turned around that she went to graduate school and earned a Master of Science degree in whole foods nutrition from Bastyr University so that she could be a credible source of information. Before she had graduated from Bastyr, the owners of the Juiceman company hired her to write a little booklet for their juicer. One thing led to another and she became "The Juice Lady." Her first book, Juicing for Life, was an international best-seller. It's now available in her third edition as The Juice Lady's Guide to Juicing for Health. Then she learned about the amazing health benefits of virgin coconut oil. She wrote about it in The Coconut Diet. Cherie is a raw foods chef who makes green smoothies and fresh juice every day for herself and her husband. Even her dog Annie, the Schnauzer, benefits with homemade meals of veggies, meat, and brown rice. You can sign up for Cherie's free monthly newsletter at www.juiceladyinfo.com.
