Wow! I'm shrinking!!,
This review is from: The Raw Food Detox Diet: The Five-day Plan for Vibrant Health and Maximum Weight Loss (Hardcover)
This is a really well written and beautifully laid-out book. I've done every diet going and read loads of books on raw foods/paleo diets etc. This one really speaks to me! Natalia is a nutritionist who accepts that we are all different and so the book caters for people at different points in their cleansing journey! You might be ready to go the whole hog and live on fruit and raw salads, or you may need a few months of eating meat/fish, wholegrains and 'normal' foods. There is a questionnaire to help you decide where you are at, which I found spookily accurate. You are allowed the occasional glass of wine and dark chocolate - hoorah!!
The recipes are lovely and the charts are genuinely useful.
The only reason I give 4 stars not 5 is because it is entirely geared towards the American reader - no links to resources in UK at all, which these days is pretty poor. You can find more UK info at the Fresh Network website, in whose magazine you can also read an interview with Ms Rose. But otherwise, I recommend this book - you will find it easy to use, and you WILL lose weight!!!
