It works but......,
This review is from: 7lbs in 7 Days: The Juice Master Diet (Paperback)
I had to go off plan. It wasn't practical for me at lunchtimes and doing an hours fitness work in the evenings wasn't practical either (its inclusion in a juicing book was a bit of a cheek anyway!). So why four stars and how can I say "it works", well, its more that the concept works for me, rather than the seven lb programme described in the book; I had already bought a cheap juicer and have been fruit juicing for a while but with this book I decided to make a real effort and actually do a juice fast. I did it over a long weekend when I knew I didn't have any nights out planned. Weight came off, I didn't feel hungry at all (at times I was bloated from all the juice). I didn't bother with the expensive powders he recommends, just green juices with a bit of fruit in them - I also didn't buy the more exotic greens, I just replaced them with things from the same family that I could find in Aldi or Asda. I did half an hour of fitness work each night and managed to get into those shirts in my wardrobe that had so far been banished. I still use the recipies in the book but find it easier to replace breakfasts and evening meals a couple of days a week rather than go for a full seven days.
The text itself has an engaging and down to earth style to it, no bluster, no statistical mumbo jumbo, just plain, easy language.
