As you can tell, Kimberly Snyder pushes vegetarian and vegan diets as the healthiest route but she does say you don't have to give up meat all together. She recommends no more than three dinners a week with meat, preferably not land animals. She also highly suggests eating raw since none of the nutrients are lost to cooking. Again, it makes sense but dang it I like to steam my veggies! The one thing Miss Snyder recommended that I had never heard about was eating fruits by themselves and nothing afterwards for at least 20 minutes since our bodies absorb them so fast (when eaten by themselves) and make are intestines very acidic. She says that having fruit with anything else will make everything inside our intestines putrefy and take a really long time to be eliminated.
I like the green smoothie recipe and can definitely do it 5 mornings a week but not too excited about her oat groat recipe. Miss Snyder has three different phases for the detox so really everyone could manage one of those phases depending on your conviction. If you are hard core, you'll give up meat, eat mostly raw foods, go organic, and be popping tons of pills (probiotic supplements, digestive enzymes, and magnesium-oxygen supplements) each day. If you're like me, you'll be drinking the green smoothie, increase the days you're vegetarian, and just overall watch what you eat and in what order. The book is a wealth of knowledge and I can imagine most people will think it's not realistic. But, take your new found knowledge and at least try several changes and see what difference it will make.
There are so many wonderful insights and suggestions on how to make your digestion and internal functions operate more efficiently. If you are a type-A personality and try to follow her guidelines to a "T" you may find yourself becoming a bit frustrated because it is no easy feat. However, i would suggest (at least in the beginning) trying to incorporate her recommendations into your habits as best you can and not sweating the small stuff. She makes her suggestions with a grain of salt so that they are just suggestions. I believe she has alternative ways to eat those "unhealthy" foods by pairing them with something to help break them down, or by taking a digestive enzyme. The only hard-fast rule that I recall is her saying absolutely NO dairy.... well, i still eat some dairy, but I am more conscious about it now, and i have given up milk for Almond Milk. This book was truly life changing for me. :-)
