"When I saw Laura's body change shape and shed weight, I assumed the obvious: I was going to have to go to prison to lean out. I never read diet books, but I read hers because she's my friend. I'm leaner, meaner, and am now the proud owner of a 4-pack. Do it. I did." (Chelsea Handler, New York Times bestselling author)

This book is inconsistent at best. I WANT to love it....but it doesn't add up with the "Stashes". The shopping lists have you buying more than what you actually need, without any use for it later in.
How much Almond bread does that recipe make? How often am I expected to make it?
How much/ how often am I drinking broth?
Am I expected to slow cook broth 2 times a week? Why can't that be done once a week? How much broth does each batch make?
I don't eat red meat or fish. What can I substitute for?
How to I know if my stretches are pulling and pushing in the right place?
Thinking they would have a nice library built up on their site of FAQ's with Elizabeth....and maybe even a discussion community...this would help answer all these questions...but no. The site is just promo for the book we already own.
It's SO CLOSE. The theory is there. The book just doesn't deliver.
The food is good, not ground breaking but good. The meal prep was easier than what I normally prep on a Sunday, However- It is expensive, in my opinion. I'm the only one doing it in our house and for the shopping list for the Stash 1 I spent $160 and I live in the Midwest, I can't imagine how much it would be in NYC or a more metro town. I also couldn't find everything on the list and the stuff I did find, I had to go to 4 different stores. I mean, if you want someone to eat all organic and Whole Foods doesn't carry everything, maybe make some alternative suggestions for people. The broth- It's delicious, I'm not going to lie but nowhere in the book do they tell you how much to drink all day. All Laura says is that she fills up a thermos in the morning. What size thermos? 16oz? 32? There are also no substitutions in this book. Here in the Midwest right now produce isn't at it's peek, I couldn't find beets at any of the 4 stores, but she/they don't tell you what you can sub stuff for and I find that very frustrating. The plan also requires a LOT of time to warm up your meals during the day. You aren't supposed to use the microwave so I find myself heating up my meals 3 times a day on the stove which requires a lot of pots and pans being used. If you work outside the home, like the majority of America, I don't know how they will make this work. I also agree with some of the other reviews about needing more detail about the stretching. There are ZERO modifications for this. IF you have bad knees or are really overweight, the stretching is going to be extremely difficult. I like the recipes and they taste good but not enough to buy this again. I'll take the recipes, write them down and incorporate them into my meals but that's about it.
It explains how proper stretching can help the liver, gallbladder and lymph system to work properly together. You don't have to spend hours in the gym, actually from what this says that can hurt you.
The one thing I did not like about the book is the recipe part. They recommend all organic, which i agree is best for you. With this plan you cook 2 days per week, each time for the next 3 days. ( your stash to eat from for 3 days)
I love to cook and the recipes are great, but no where did they state that the grocery list provided is for one person. The grocery list is extensive and buying all organic will be expensive. (Especially for a family) I will post a pic later of one of the lists. The majority of us out here don't have the funds that these two ladies do that wrote the book. There were also a couple ingredients that I had never heard of in some of the lists. Then when I scanned the recipes, did not find the ingredient in any of them, so why put it on the shopping list?
I just received the book Sunday, finished reading it Wednesday. It has a lot of really good info and is well worth adding to your collection.
I will definately start the stretching exercises today, and I will try the recipes next time I go to the grocery, I try to eat clean anyway so may just modify since I have others to cook for also.
Will update in a few weeks with results.
Update on exercises: I think they are useful but unless you are VERY flexible some are really hard to do. I will keep doing them as much as I can and hopefully will become more flexible so that I can do these.
I am fairly active and thought I was pretty flexible but am not near enough to get into some of these positions.
I am 5'3", 145#, 52 yr old female.
Back in the day (30 years ago) when I was doing gymnastics I could have done all of this, but now I just don't bend like I used to.
I just added pictures of the Stash # 1 shopping list, keep in mind, this is the list for ONE person for THREE days of meals. To me it is way too expensive. If I had the writers salaries it would be different. I have to cook not only for me but for my husband 6'4" 260# and his 17 yr old son 5'11" 200# (bottomless pit), we do try to eat clean. I buy my meats from local organic farmers and try to buy whole hog, half cow etc to save money, also grow my own veggies. There is a lot of good info in the book, but unless you have unlimited funds and a gymnast flexible body it is hard to follow this plan.
I have been doing the 21 Day Fix and have had very good results with it. Not really lost much weight (6#) but have lost 4.5 inches off my waist alone. I incorporated some of the ideas of the Stash Plan into the other plan.
The Cons: The person that compiled the grocery list was either stupid or #$$$%. I quickly learned to compile my own grocery list. It is very difficult for normal working person's to spend 2-3 hours on Weds nite making the next stash. It should be all done on Sunday or day off. Lastly, pretend you are at work, and there's not an oven, you must use the microwave. It's the only way to heat the food when you have 30 minutes for lunch and you work for a living.
