Overview

ABOUT THE BOOK

While the holidays are a classic time of indulgence, gastronomic hedonism can strike at any time of the year. A stressful week at work, a major birthday celebration, too many bake sales, and you're firmly in the sugar and fat red zone.

So how do you clean up your act—and your body? This guide will take you through the most popular cleanses on the market so you can rev up your energy, maybe lose a few pounds, and get that healthy glow back. Remember that you should not undertake any of these cleanses without consulting your doctor—the body is a complex machine, and fiddling too much with the gears can make it go all wonky. Go slowly and smartly, and you'll have your bounce back in no time.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

How could you not love something called the “Fast Track Detox Diet”? The thing is, though, no pain, no...loss. This cleanse requires a fast—it's hiding in plain sight right there in the title! But don't worry; you'll be prepared for it. Author Anne Louise Gittleman (who also wrote the bestselling The Fat Flush Plan) recommends a week of eating what she calls “liver-loving foods” (such as lemons, garlic, leafy greens, artichokes, beets) and “colon-loving foods” (like fiber-rich apples, ground flaxseed, or berries), along with lean protein and small amounts of heart-healthy fats, to prepare the body for a one-day juice fast (which, after The Master Cleanse, sounds downright easy). You'll also eat these “loving” foods for 3 days after the fast.

The juice fast consists of a day of drinking one cup of a “miracle” combination of fresh orange juice, fresh lemon juice, cranberry juice, nutmeg, ginger, and stevia (a plant-based sweetener) every hour, with a cup of water in between. The combo is meant to stabilize blood sugar and reduce hunger cravings, which is exactly what you want when faced with a day of liquids.

For those with busy lives, kids, and demanding jobs, the “Fast Track Detox Diet” may be the easiest to follow, as it requires the least preparation of the detoxes listed in this guide. If you go out to a restaurant, you can ask the waiter to prepare a lean chicken breast or lovely piece of fish (lots of garlic!) with a side of lightly steamed veggies. It's also easy to bring snacks along in the car or to work: just cut up lots of colorful fruit, toss it with some lemon juice, throw it in a container, and go! Have your kids pick out their favorite fruits and always have a healthful snack bag prepped when you pick them up from school—you'll probably be hungry by mid-afternoon as well, so you can all share in the goodness.
