5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource, July 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Crazy Sexy Diet: Eat Your Veggies, Ignite Your Spark, and Live Like You Mean It! (Hardcover)
I use this book as a guide, not The Bible. There are parts I skipped that I didn't want to read--animal cruelty in the meat industry (had enough of that when I read Fast Food Nation), meditation/yoga (my idea of meditation is taking a walk alone and I am not a yoga fan). But the book is full of great info and it's nice to have it all in one place.

I'm on Day 5 of the cleanse, which I started b/c I've been eating horribly for the past year. I cheated and had a big piece of cake at my friend's birthday party last night, and let me tell you, I woke up this morning and felt like vomiting. So maybe the cleanse is working.

Again, I use the book as a guide. So I still use the microwave, even though I'm not supposed to. I'm not going to kill myself about it. Also, if you don't make much money and have a family to support this is going to seem like an expensive plan. If you don't live near a Trader Joe's (for cheap cleanse staples like almond butter, nut milk, etc.) and a place that sells inexpensive produce, this is not going to work. Making juices every day will take at least an extra hour out of your day to prep and clean, and I'm not sure how I'm going to make it for another 2 weeks while working.

One interesting thing about this cleanse is that I feel beyond full, prob. from all the roughage. You will definitely not be, and should not be hungry. But I find myself thinking about bread a lot, not so much for the taste, but for the texture in my mouth. Rice/corn/nut crackers seem to take the edge off a bit but it's definitely not the same!

Regarding your comment regarding the time it takes to make juice and prep & clean - I totally understand that. My one daughter is away at college and now that I have no one to take care of but myself, working out every day and eating healthy, including juicing, drinking 2 green smoothies a day, and clean eating - all this is very time consuming. I actually wanted to transition to a raw food diet and even THAT is time consuming. I pack 2 healthy meals plus a snack every night in a cooler for work the next day. With dail workout and food prep, I barely have time to do this and get in bed early enough for 6 hrs of sleep. If you have a family to take care of, more power to you because i know you are BUSY. I work full time and if I also had a huz & kids... forget it. I couldn't do all that.
