    Loved it!

    This book is an easy read and very informative. Kris lays down all the info. in layman's terms so you can actually understand all the medical mumbo jumbo. My favorite thing about the book is that it inspired me to want to take better care of my body not because it is what I am "supposed" to do, but because it is a gift I can give to myself. Excellent book!

    Life-changing--a must-read for everyone!

    This is so much more than a diet book--but it's a great diet book. Kris Carr is amazing; this is the most inspiring, intimate, hand-holding guide out there to embracing a happy, healthy life--all in the inimitable Kris Carr way: with the love and humor of a best friend. Diet is plant-based, with a sharp focus on the benefits of alkaline foods.

    Highly recommended - essential information for a healthier you!

    Kris Carr's inspirational attitude pours out of the pages and into the heart of the reader of all of her books. As a stage IV cancer patient myself, I have found great advice and encouragement from Kris's previous Crazy Sexy Cancer books. I love that she has created this diet book to extend what she has learned about becoming the healthiest being that you can be with everyone (as well as us affected by cancer). The information is solid and research based. The delivery is outstanding! I would get any Kris Carr product out there. Love it!!!

    Buy this book used

    Not a very good book, way to much preaching in it. And very little of what and how to change your eating habits. Most of the public know about why meat should be a side dish (and the treatment of animals) or limit you meat to once or twice a week. Also artificial ingredients are not good for you, again most of the public knows this. Nothing new in the book. Very disappointed in the book. Have to read through most of it to get to the diet part. So I say wait till it goes on sale or buy it used if you want to read it.

    I have been doing green smoothies for six months and was looking into a vegetarian lifestyle change. This book helped make the transition easier. Great tips and recipes.
