Lose 10 pounds in 7 days—the author of the popular book and blog Lose Weight by Eating offers multiple plan options and 130 delicious, real-food recipes in this illustrated guide to help you get healthy, eat better, and reach (and maintain) your ideal weight.
Dietary detoxes shouldn’t leave you hungry, deprived, and desperate to binge on the foods you’ve been trying to avoid. Instead, Audrey Johns has designed a practical, proven detox plan that encourages you to eat for your cravings. She took naughty recipes and made them over so nice that they’re actually healthier than fancy juice cleanses. She knows the plan works because fans of her website who have followed it have lost impressive amounts of weight—some up to eighteen pounds in a single week!
Now Audrey expands her popular online plan, turning it into a customizable program that accelerates weight loss and raises metabolism naturally. With Lose Weight by Eating: Detox Week, you’ll abstain from any food or drink that isn’t natural, replace fried foods with baked, minimize sugars, substitute carbohydrates with healthier versions, and indulge with festive mocktails instead of alcohol. By filling your diet with food that actually aids the body in dumping toxins, that unwanted fat will begin to melt away and you’ll feel healthier, stronger, and more energetic.
Lose Weight by Eating: Detox Week is not a fast. It’s a chance to reset your relationship with food and shed pounds without feeling deprived. Audrey lays out 4 plans and provides a Detox Quiz to determine which one is best for you:
- Detox Diet Week: lose an average of 10 pounds with the original 7-day plan
- Detox Diet Month: a 30-day plan that can get rid of those stubborn 10 to 25 pounds you’ve been trying to lose for years
- The 3-Month Detox Plan: drop weight fast—up to 50 pounds in 90 days!
- The Detox Lifestyle: a 365-day plan that is ideal for all ages and stages of life—and a great way to maintain your current weight after weight loss
All the plans work together so you can follow one and work up to another, and each includes exercise goals and recommendations for daily sleep and hydration. Best of all, you’ll get to treat yourself to fabulous food! Audrey includes dozens of recipes, many fast and easy enough to make any day of the week—and all under 500 calories per meal—including Pineapple Mango Green Sorbet, English Muffin Sandwiches with Homemade Sausage Patties, Ceviche Tostadas with Homemade Salsa and Guacamole, Chili Casserole with Cornbread Topping, Avocado Club Cheeseburgers, Chocolate Dipped Key Lime Popsicles, Mango Cucumber Basil Detox Water, and other delicious crave-worthy delights.
Lose Weight by Eating: Detox Week comes complete with tips and tricks for motivation and ease, success stories from real people who have shed the pounds, and handy shopping lists and meal planners so you can you stay on track to achieve and maintain your goals.

Both my husband and I love this book, lots of mouthwatering recipes. I've already lost 5 pounds in 4 days, I'm going to purchase her other cookbook too.
Received this book for a belated Christmas gift. It's a gift from heaven! The recipes are so easy to make and so delicious! I can't wait to try more of them! It's what I've been waiting for to help me lose weight! I've already lost 5 pounds! Detox it does!! And so naturally without chemicals. Thank you Audrey! You are so inspirational! Check out her blog to find out her incredible story! She's been on Rachel Ray several times, most recently last week, and that's not an easy feat. She is for real! Love her to pieces! Audrey, you go girl! Seriously, check out her blog and her Rachel Ray appearances and her Facebook Live posts. She's fabulous!
I love this cookbook! Audrey has such a great approach to changing how you eat. Her recipes are always interesting and tasty. I love that she uses fresh ingredients. My family loves the recipes from Audrey's first book and we are diving into the new recipes with the same results. I have learned so much from Audrey's books and I have managed to modify some family favorites using tricks I have learned from these books. I highly recommend Audrey's books for anyone looking to prepare healthier meals.
This book is great and the recipes are so easy to make. I saw her on Rachel Ray and Audrey is incredible! The guy with the one star rating doesn't know what he's talking about. Who wants to search the internet looking for recipes all day and printing them off. Her recipes are much better than "free" ones. If you've seen Audrey's blog, you know her extraordinary story and the passion she puts into her recipes. They are so delicious!
Absolutely fantastic recipes! Audrey has done it again! I'm an executive chef and this book has a lot of quality and value to it. I've enjoyed the recipes very much. I highly recommend this book and Audrey's first book, Lose Weight by Eating. Read her blog - she has a truly remarkable story! She's been on Rachel Ray several times and does wonderful Facebook Live shows.
Love this book and love the recipes. Audrey is my neighbor and she's a wonderful lady. I also have her first book, Lose Weight by Eating. The recipes are fantastic in both books. I especially like the salad recipes. Thanks Audrey for helping me eat more healthy!
I saw her on the Rachel Ray show, recipes looked good so I bought the book at Barnes & Nobles. Such pretty photos and recipes look easy, no weird ingredients either. I made the Chili last night, so good, can't wait to make more of her recipes.
