I purchased this book a while ago and while reading did find parts a bit repetitive (hence the one less 'star'). Other than that it was in simple language and easy to follow - not to mention making perfect sense: in a very small nutshell - eat what is not processed, and if it's not organic, peel it first before eating. There is lots of other enlightening information about shellfish and what types of fish to eat/avoid, problems with certain meats, types of oils to avoid and use, water and air purifiers, things you can do for your body to help with cleansing, etc. If I followed the detox programme the author mentioned that I'd become sick, and boy did I ever. My body was getting rid of so much built-up toxins that I was flat out in bed in a sweat for two days solid. I knew it was coming and why, so I didn't bother with doctor visits or pills to stop the fever, which would stop the detoxification process. When the fever broke I sat up in my bed and could only blink my eyes as I was so shocked how great I felt, even sitting there in a sweat-soaked t-shirt, I never felt better. Although I have waned from eating properly again and I feel tired and drained most of the time through poor choices with my diet, my New Year's resolution is to follow Fife's detox programme again and this time, make a lifestyle change with it, rather than a temporary fix. I highly recommend it!
