Haas discusses gastrointestinal tract health and its role in overall well-being and offers a simple yearlong detox program as well as eating plans for specific detox situations (drugs, alcohol, nicotine and others).

Format: Paperback
This book presents an easy to follow guide to beginning a simple detox diet and proceeding further into juice or water fasting, should you desire. Very few special purchases are needed to follow the plan. The purchase of fresh fruits and vegetables are the main expense. Vitamins and supplements are listed that may be of benefit, but they are not a necessity. Herbs are briefly touched on. If you are interested in incorporating herbs in your plan you will need to seek an additional resource.
There are separate chapters on nicotine, caffeine, drug, sugar and alcohol withdrawal and detox plans and supplements discussed for each. Physical effects of using each of these products are described in a rational manner without preaching.
It is a sensible guide to beginning a new journey to healthier eating. I found the plan easy enough to follow without feeling deprived. The outline to transition into fasting will guide me when I am ready.
This is a small book, but surprisingly complete. There is a list of resources for in-patient detox centers as well as support groups for specific problems (drug abuse, etc.)

Using too much of seemingly innocuous substances like coffee, tea and sugar can be addictive and may cause severe health problems over the long term. These include blood pressure abnormalities, mood disorders, headaches and fatigue.
The New Detox Diet is an informative practical guide on how to cleanse the body of the above substances, nicotine, alcohol and others in the most natural way. The book provides great recipes and helpful information on counteracting the side effects of detoxification, which can often manifest in extreme discomfort.
The detox programmes are presented in detail and includes pitfalls to watch out for. Based on the body's own healing processes, the approach is subtle and holistic, avoiding drastic cold-turkey methods. The various harmful items are treated chapter by chapter, and at the end of each the most relevant information for that particular substance is repeated in short form.
I found the author's suggestions of alternatives for the above substances and his tips for a healthier lifestyle quite positive and sensible. The New Detox Diet would be a worthy addition to your bookshelf if you wish to take responsibility for your own health.

I have been using the guidelines in this book to do semi-annual detoxes for the last two years.

Many of the detox diet books I have looked at are extremely complicated and require extensive advance planning and preparation. For a busy person, the plans are almost impossible to follow. I have found this book very useful because it provides some basic, easy-to-follow plans that can be followed while continuing most normal life routines.

I am moderately hypoglycemic and also find that the general detox plan in this book is easily modifiable so that I can receive the benefits without causing erratic blood sugar swings.

I am a health major and a lot of the information that is listed in this book is common knowledge. Yeah you shouldn't eat a lot of sugar or caffiene because it will make you feel bad. I read through this book several times and even though the information is useful for living a healthy lifestyle there is not a lot of information regarding what steps should be taken to detox completely. I do think however the food lists about what juices will work for what are interesting and I have tried those but other then that not too much in depth info here. At the end of the chapters there are guidlines for detoxing from substances and a lot of the information is simple stuff that is mentioned in nutritional textbooks as well as the Dietary guidelines for americans. If you want a book that is going to go in more detail about detox I would not recommend this one.
