Rose intersperses her concept pages with true stories of people who have tried her methods and have succeeded to continually utilize them, not as a pinch-hitting diet to lose a few pounds but as a lifestyle change that is both easy and pleasurable to facilitate. Peppered with menus and recipes, she provides a real life solution to the "What to eat" question. She doesn't linger on the idea of high-caloric treats in the form of nut, coconut and dried fruit concoctions so abundant in whole food markets. Instead she divides the day into three equal portions, feeds us accordingly and suggests a little high percentage dark chocolate or raw goat milk ice cream for dessert. How refreshing!
"Detox 4 Women" uses a food combining methodology which allows the digestive track to easily process meals without secreting competing alkaline and acid digesting enzymes that neutralize and hence retard the overall digestive process. Similar to Suzanne Somers' Get Skinny on Fabulous Food and the French Montignac diet Slim Forever - The French Way, Rose divides foods into four different categories as she did initially in RFDD. Any fruit is in a category of it's own and must be eaten separately to avoid fermentation; easily digested, a fruit meal can be followed by any other kind of meal after about twenty minutes. The starch group consists of nightshades, grains, legumes and starchy vegetables. After consuming a starch meal at least two hours must pass to insure adequate digestion. Fish, poultry, eggs, shellfish, meat, cheese and game are considered fleshes; three hours are required for the digestion of this type of meal. The fat/protein category of nuts, dried fruits, seeds and coconut are heavy and require at least three hours of digestion. Lastly green vegetables act as a wild card and can interact with any category accept fruit. It may take some time to master the concept of eating the right types of foods together at any particular meal; once you do so, however, your digestive track will reward you with easy elimination and relatively no gas. Even so, experimentation is a necessity as everyone is different. Blissful!
In "Detox 4 Women," Rose goes a step further that she does in the RFDD. She narrows down the choices by suggesting that nuts/seeds, grains, beans and fruits not be considered diet staples if one wants to sufficiently detox. How true this is! In addition, she recommends fish as the number one flesh protein as well as raw goat or sheep cheese and organic eggs, rather than the more commonplace chicken breast for this particular system. Eating simply in the morning consists of drinking intermittently about 30 ounces of her green lemonade (this is deliciously refreshing despite the comment made by another reviewer who likened the taste to something found on the `bottom of a fish tank'). A green salad for lunch with either raw goat cheese (protein meal) or an avocado and sweet potato (starch meal) is followed by either more green lemonade or another vegetable juice like carrot with romaine or celery for a mid-afternoon snack. Dinner makes the densest meal, allowing for adequate time to digest during the night--I usually do vegetables or salad and a small piece of fish. Dessert is easy--it consists of dark chocolate or the goat milk ice cream in either chocolate or vanilla flavor.
By following this plan, I use my juicer every few days or simply purchase the green lemonade at my local green grocer. Salads are easy to put together as are fish dishes served with green vegetables. The time spent in preparation is minimal and the influx of nutrition per calorie would make Dr. Fuhrman of Eat For Health: Lose Weight, Keep It Off, Look Younger, Live Longer (2 book set) proud.
As your body naturally whittles itself to its most balanced state, you will notice differences in your vitality, your skin, your hair and your sleep patterns. On an overall level, you will be thrilled with the results. Skipping the fruit smoothie I had grown to rely upon as a staple for good health, made all the difference in the world for me. Foregoing the ubiquitous chicken entrée for a fresh fish keeps it light and tasty without the heavy burdensome feeling in the evening akin to overeating. Once your balance is restored, some fruit, nuts, grains and beans can be added on a limited basis--stick to the combining concepts and you will feel wonderful and need very little food to satisfy as you are treating yourself to a full compliment of nutrition each and every time you slurp down the juice. You will not be disappointed.
Rose addresses various diseases and the counterproductive effects of our environment as all the more reason to follow her plan for wellness. Although specifically targeted for women, I do not think that men will fail when following this program. An avid exerciser, I found that Rose's approach allowed me to exercise to my heart's (no pun intended) content with no feeling of weakness or fatigue found with other dieting for weight loss programs. Her green lemonade hits the spot right after intense perspiration, endowing the drinker with a punch of lemon and ginger followed by a delicious infusion of varying dark (kale) and light greens (celery/romaine). Yum--the ultimate detox tools!
Bottom line? "Detox 4 Women" is Natalie Rose's newest book that advocates, for the most part, a raw food existence. Written in a chatty, easy-to-read way, Rose makes suggestions that will balance out your body, aid in your digestion, help you lose weight while allowing you to glow from the inside out without fatigue or desire for any of the usual comfort foods of the SAD diet. Menus and recipes are included. I subtracted a star as the need to read her "The Raw Food Detox Diet: The Five-Step Plan for Vibrant Health and Maximum Weight Loss" may be beneficial to understand the food combining she advocates a little more substantially. Rose loves stevia and uses it frequently as a sweetener. Personally, I do not like the overly sweet taste of stevia and prefer Raw Agave Nectar. However, the juices and nutrient rich meals suggested are more than enough to stave off the need for much sweetness, so this may be a moot point. Recommended as one of the best diets I have ever tried. It gets the results you want quickly and easily. Look forward to wearing your skinny jeans!

1. Agreed... stevia in EVERYTHING. weird, no?
2. The shopping list is helpful, especially if following the specific recommended 30-day diet. but what I really needed was not "go get some veggies from the store every week", but something like, this week, get 6 heads of any combination of romaine/baby/spinach, 8 cucumbers, 4 pounds of carrots, etc. She took the time to write the shopping list, and to write out each recipe, and each daily menu, so you'd think that going the extra step to write a specific shopping list would be the next obvious thing. Obviously, it's a starting point, some people may choose more items, or choose to omit some items, or to sub out certain meals, but to have a specific starting place would be helpful.
3. On page 55, she begins by mentioning the Classic Detox. Then lists that there are 2 alteration programs, "Baptism by Sunshine" and "The Systematic Cleanse." Maybe I have totally missed something, but these are omitted from the book. Can someone tell me what page these are on in this book because I have clearly missed them, or, if not described/laid out, why she even mentioned them? I have her other book, and don't see them in that book either.
So.... for someone not planning to go raw for life, but to get started on a cleaner, healthier way of living, and yes, to lose up to 10bs, would you all suggest the women's detox, or the regular detox in her other book?
