5.0 out of 5 stars Feel your best!, March 15, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 21 Pounds in 21 Days: The Martha's Vineyard Diet Detox (Hardcover)
I did this cleanse because a friend of mine recommended it and it is one of the best things I've ever done for my body. I did it for 15 days, and yes, I lost 15lbs, but more importantly than the weight I lost my body felt the best it has possibly ever felt.

I've read some of the other reviews, people said it was disgusting or they were hungry all the time, and I should say that I did not follow the regimen to the letter. I bought Naked Juice instead of Martha's Vineyard's juices, I used supplements that I liked, I did a Yogic intestinal wash (Laghoo shankhaprakshalana) instead of enemas, I added a pinch of salt to soups I made that were too bitter, and I ate soups at restaurants when I went out with friends. I think in order to keep from failing you have to allow yourself some wiggle room. The end result was amazing ... my friends all said my skin was glowing, my mood improved, my energy level increased, I wanted to exercise, and I felt fantastic in my body. And when I did start eating again, everything tasted SOOO GOOD! I enjoyed food on a level I never knew was possible.

If I'd followed the cleanse exactly my results could only have been better, but the way I followed it I didn't get hungry, I didn't feel deprived, it wasn't disgusting, and I still got all the benefits. I highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to improve their health, and the bonus is you'll get an improved relationship with your body and with food.

Hey,
Im really interested in this diet. But I also wanted to use Naked Juice instead of the Martha's Vineyard's juices. I was just wondering what supplements did you use?

Naked juice isn't a good juicing supplement as it's incredibly high in sugar. There's also a lot of crappy stuff in it according to a new lawsuit: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/28/naked-juice-class-action-lawsuit_n_3830437.html?ir=Business

Raw juicing is full of enzymes which die very quickly, which is why it's important to drink fresh juice soon after pressing. Bottled juice is really just a big blast of sugar, I'm sorry to say, not what you want for detoxing or losing weight!
