Overview

The author of the best-selling Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips and Crazy Sexy Cancer Survivor takes on the crazy sexy subject of what and how we eat, drink, and think. Crazysexydiet.com On the heels of Kris Carr’s best-selling cancer survival guidebooks and her acclaimed TLC documentary comes her new journey into a realm vital to anyone’s health. Infused with her signature sass, wit and advice-from-the-trenches style, Crazy Sexy Diet is a beautifully illustrated resource that puts you on the fast track to vibrant health, happiness and a great ass! Along with help from her posse of experts, Carr lays out the fundamentals of her Crazy Sexy Diet: a low-glycemic, vegetarian program that emphasizes balancing the pH of the body with lush whole and raw foods, nourishing organic green drinks, and scrumptious smoothies. Plus, she shares the steps of her own twenty-one-day cleanse, and simple but delectable sample recipes. In ten chapters with titles such as, “pHabulous,” “Coffee, Cupcakes and Cocktails,” “Make Juice Not War,” and “God-Pod Glow,” Carr empowers readers to move from a state of constant bodily damage control to one of renewal and repair. In addition to debunking common diet myths and sharing vital tips on detoxifying our bodies and psyches—advice that draws both on her personal experience as a cancer survivor and that of experts—she provides helpful hints on natural personal care, how to stretch a dollar, navigate the grocery store, eating well on the run, and working through the inevitable pangs and cravings for your old not-so-healthy life. Crazy Sexy Diet is a must for anyone who seeks to be a confident and sexy wellness warrior.

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!

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!!!

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.

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.
