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.
The biggest tip I have is to read the book first, before actually doing the detox. It helps solidify your resolve during those times, and it will happen, where you want to give up. If you make it through your program (whether 7, 14 or 21 days) you will feel and look great and be more apt to eat more healthy going forward.
A couple years ago, determined to take control of my health, I literally purged my home of anything containing high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, hormones, anti-biotics, brominated vegetable oil and anything else I deem as "over-processed chemicalized sludge".
My weight stabilized then another medical saga left me despondent, drifting through life grazing on enough fare from the traditional Standard American Diet (very SAD) I gained yet more weight til I was "morbidly obese".
Returning to my strict adherence to avoiding the ingredients which causes me to refer to over-processed goods as "chemicalized sludge", I again stabilized my weight. Figuring out hormonal body types helped lead me to enhanced supplementation- I lost an amazing 5.4% in just 2 weeks! ! Wow!
Trying to boost my game, afterall I still cannot "workout" in the traditional sense, a friend led me to this book. Wow! So much I have come to know to be true is packed into a simple easy to follow manual.
Whether you want to lose 21 pounds in 21 days or you need to lose 21% or in my case intend to lose over 100 pounds, get this book. It can literally help you empower yourself to save your life.
2015 Update - okay, so shortly after posting my previous review I had several major setbacks, both physically and then mentally. I fell off the horse after losing about 40 pounds. If I can do it while physically disabled, someone who can seriously work out may have a better chance. I'm back on track now, almost 3 years later. Since then I've learned the truth about SYNTHETIC vitamins such as FOLIC ACID and the truth of REAL vitamins such as FOLATE and WHY it's such a huge importance particularly with over 60% of us having some form of the MTHFR genetic mutations (anyone with a personal or family history of diabetes, hypertension, cancer, neural tube defects, luekemia, ms, liver disease, cardiac issues, birth defects, autism, depression, chronic fatigue, anxiety or about any other issue, consider getting tested at a site like 23andme then upload the raw data to a site like Genetic Genie for REAL info on what you need to do for your health.
So.. I'm back to REAL foods, those that are FREE of "enriched" synthetic vitamins and nutrients. I'm back on track.. and 20 pounds just melted away seemingly overnight (2 months). As long as I'm good about staying on track I loose weight. .. now the problem is staying on track.
