Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Want to lose weight without starving yourself, counting calories, or following a complex meal plan? Would you like to look and feel stronger and healthier than you have in years—exercise optional? How about transforming your health in just four weeks and helping to save the planet in the process? Find out how by reading Clean, Green, and Lean.

In this clear, easy-to-understand guide to getting slim, healthy, and toxin-free, naturopathic physician Dr. Walter Crinnion shows you how to clean up your diet, clean out your body, and rid your home of the toxins that surround you. Many of your nagging health problems will melt away with the pounds, including fatigue, aches and pains, allergies, and depression.

Clean, Green, and Lean shows you why conventional weight-loss programs don't deliver or can't sustain the results you're looking for and how the toxin-fat connection prevents you from losing weight no matter how little you eat or how much you exercise. You'll learn how reducing your toxic burden can help you stay lean for life. Dr. Crinnion helps you determine whether your weight gain is toxin-related and prescribes several cleansing methods and toxin-fighting supplements to rid your body of heavy metals and other poisons. Could it be your house that's making you fat? Dr. Crinnion helps you identify sources of toxic chemicals, allergens, and poisons in your home where you might least expect them. You'll learn how to remove and dispose of them safely, keep new toxins out, and make your home as clean and green as it can be.

Clean, Green, and Lean contains healthy, delicious, clean, green recipes and two weeks of meal plans for lean breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. These nutritious and satisfying meals will keep your stomach full, your body toxin-free, and your body and mind working at peak efficiency.

Filled with inspiring, true-life stories of people who have lost weight, healed their bodies, and turned their lives around following Dr. Crinnion's four-week plan, Clean, Green, and Lean is the groundbreaking book you need to slim down, clean up, and start enjoying life again.

From the Back Cover

"Over the years, I've seen Dr. Walter Crinnion literally give patients back their own lives, often as the happy ending to an otherwise sorry tale of missed diagnoses, therapeutic dead ends, and thousands of wasted dollars. It is my great honor and pleasure to introduce you to his first book."
From the Foreword by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo, author of Eat Right 4 Your Type

"Clean, Green, and Lean is a revolutionary new approach to dieting: you can lose weight and help the world get and stay green at the same time. That's a great promise."
Fred Pescatore, MD, author of The Hamptons Diet

Groundbreaking science can help you win the battle against fat for good

You've been eating less, counting calories, and exercising like crazy—shouldn't you be skinny by now? If you're not, diet and exercise may not be the weight-loss answer you need. In Clean, Green, and Lean, you'll find out how the toxins in your food and all over your house can make you fat and keep you that way. This book clearly shows you how to clean out your system and your home to lose weight and feel great in just four weeks.

Another diet book. Oh joy - I'll add it to this stack that I can just barely reach the top of. Wait - what's this about toxins? "Get Rid of the Toxins That Make You Fat," the subtitle reads. Actually, that's one I haven't heard before. Hmmm .... TWO DAYS LATER: This actually sounds totally legitimate and totally doable. Even if you don't need to lose weight, this book would be a worthwhile investment just for the sections on getting rid of the toxins. It turns out that toxins are stored in fat and they compromise the mitochondria, which Crinnion describes as "the cells' power plants." They drive the metabolism by turning fats and sugars into a fuel known as ATP, which is required for the proper functioning of all the body's systems: the brain, the heart, the lungs, everything. When the mitochondria are compromised, your metabolism slows down, and we all know what happens then. So the key is getting rid of the toxins that set this vicious circle in motion, and what it takes is getting rid of the nasty chemicals in your house, eating certain foods (many of them can be taken in supplement form) and phasing others out. There's more you can do, but Crinnion assures us that just making these changes will go a long way, and I'm inclined to suspend my skepticism because it all makes perfect sense. Think about it - I have a hard time believing the human body was intended to feel as rundown as so many adults seem to feel so often. Something's going on. Why WOULDN'T all the chemicals in the air and our food be taking a toll on us? One thing I'd never thought about till reading this book is the fact that these chemicals are a modern thing. Just because our grandparents ate a certain way and lived to 90 doesn't mean we will - we're dealing with way more garbage in the environment than they did.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
In Clean, Green, and Lean, Dr. Walter Crinnion makes a very compelling case that the level of toxins in our lives plays a major role in making us fat and sick. About two-thirds of Americans adults are obese. Nealy half of the American population is affected by chronic illness, which consumes 75% of health care spending. The book cites studies which have shown that the levels of toxins in homes was as much as 10 times higher than outdoors--even in industrial areas. Dr. Crinnion makes a convincing case about how toxins are common in our food and in our homes, and how much they are making us sick. Dr. Crinnion then reports that when his patients cleaned up their diets and homes, 83 percent reported good or great improvement in their health, and many had relief from chronic conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, and other degenerative diseases. Dr. Crinnion's program was cleaning up the toxins which were the cause of these health problems and obesity issues, and once that happened his patients were healthier and lost weight. His 4 week program in Clean, Green, and Lean is not just a month of changes but really a change for a healthier lifestyle. Most doctors don't have a clue about the effect of toxins in our lives and how they are making us ill, and don't make any effort to change our diets and environments.

If I could I would give the book 4 1/2 stars. In my opinion there were a few oversights in the book.
* There is a recommendation to avoid artificial sweeteners, but the book does not name them by name such as Nutrasweet, Aspartame, etc. So you won't find these sweeteners listed by name in the index. And one of Dr. Crinnion's recipes (for seared ham) calls for 3 packets of Splenda. Well Splenda is not splendid.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I really enjoy being a vine reviewer, I get to read books I normally would not pick up. I am interested in the subjects of diet and nutrition, I have been a RN for 28 years and watched the population get fatter and fatter. This felt like another pop book until I broke it open.
Pros... the writer does a nice job of organizing and explaining a lot of studies and interpreting so they make sense in regards to your health, and your families health. The sections of enviroment toxins and the bodies inablility to release them is worth the price of the book. The solutions are are excellant, and are appliable for many families, and I have done almost all of them in the last 5 years with two cancer patients in the house. The only two I had not done was drinking enough green tea, and organic broccoli. I was impresed by the research and solutions and have made four changes to my daily eating habit. I was stalled at 147 lbs, in two days dropped to 145.
Cons,,,, the material could be a little better organised for general reading, and the sections for change,,, weeks is not going to work for most folks, some of it is serious change in lifestyle,,, so the sections could be labelled, Diet, Home, and Supplements. The book might read easier and make refinding importtant info faster.
Where I disagree with the writer is he is still stuck on soy foods and low fat,,, both of which are highly challenged nutritional ideas at this time. I do not eat any low fat foods or any soy except tofu. So I think he needs to consider some new reseach in those directions.
All in all its a great book , a wake up call for toxic issues and resolving them, I bought tea plant today....good luck in your journey to health.
