  10. 10. REVIVERecommended Duration 6 weeks/42 days – broken into weekly phases: Nourish; Move; Adapt; Release; Balance; Sustain Dietary Style Take a good hard look at all the things around you – clean up your kitchen, learn to enjoy your food and stock your kitchen with healthy foods. Its more about learning to live with good food choices versus a strict diet. Think of it as a detox for the too-busy person. Focus / Goal Eradicate all the things in life that are depleting you of energy – engaging in practices that help you to slow down, detoxify your body, replenish your energy levels and restore your body. Recipes Theres the list of SUPERFOODS recommended by Dr. Lipman followed by his recipes for whipping them into meals. His meal plan includes vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, beans & legumes, f sh, poultry & meat, eggs & dairy substitutes (yup... these go bye- i bye!), herbs, vinegar and a few specialty items. Over 30 pages of recipes. The Plan The book is broken into “42 digestible days”; each day you will be removing and adding things, noting how you feel. There is plenty of advance notice for things you may need to purchase, activities to engage in and when to begin adding foods (heads up for shopping).Other Recommendations My favorite take-away from this book was GET YOUR ELECTRONICS … at the very least your cell phone – OUT OF YOUR BEDROOM! Give your brain, eyes... your whole body time to wind down at night. There are stretches & exercises included in the book. Author Credentials Dr. Frank Lipman: Board certif ed internal medicine physician; studied complementary i therapies and founded Eleven Eleven Wellness, where he practices integrative medicine which blends medical practice, modern-day science and traditional, complementary healing.
  11. 11. CLEANRecommended Duration One, Two or Three Week Cleanses – its your choice in terms of duration; the optimal recommendation is 21 days (three weeks) Dietary Style Smoothies and whole grains for breakfast; soups and salads for lunch; “solid” meals in the evening that include meats. There is a time component to the cleanse, with meals, drinks and supplements spaced at intervals throughout your day. Focus / Goal Remove – Restore – Rejuvenate; Dr. Junger includes practices for exfoliating the body, like dry brushing and hot/cold plunge showers. The end goal is to extricate yourself from the SAD diet (the Standard American Diet). Recipes Smoothies, smoothies, smoothies! And green juice recipes. There are also “how-tos” for making coconut and basic nut milk – again ridding yourself of dairy products during the cleanse. Soups, salads and “21 Solid Meals” round out the selections. The intent is to focus on organic foods of all kinds, as well. The Plan The Doctor REALLY wants you to understand whats going on with your body. Over 190 pages are devoted to explaining how toxins affect your health, arming you with knowledge before you create the plan. You have to come up with the combinations week by week (theres a cheat sheet on GOOP I used for the plan).Other Recommendations Meditate and exercise – the calorie count on this detox plan never dips low or asks you to discontinue your regimen. Dr. Junger also brings up the idea of “Quantum Detoxif cation: Cleaning the mind.” i Author Credentials Dr. Alejandro Junger: an Eastern medicine specialist, cardiologist, and head of the Integrative Medicine program at Lenox Hill Hospital. He also practices at New York City’s renowned Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, directed by Dr. Frank Lipman.
  12. 12. Crazy Sexy DietRecommended Duration 21 days... Labeled as an “Adventure Cleanse” Dietary Style Vegan and Raw. This is not for the faint of heart. Focus / Goal Kris wants you to live a crazy, sexy life and fully mean it. Her writing, style and presentation are infectious. Her story is inspiring. Even if you arent on board with raw or vegan diets, she presents information in a way that makes you energized and ready to own your health and your life. Recipes Juices and Smoothies; Soups, salads and dressings; Asian- and Mexican- inspired main dishes, like Nori Rolls, Raw Peanut Noodles, Southwest Black Bean Burger and Mexican Pilaf – bold f avors f lled with herbs and spices. l i The Plan Let Kris be your guide through 21 days that include re-learning ways to eat, think and view the world around you. The f rst few days are very structured; the structure and i support wanes as the days and weeks continue. The Prayers and God Pod Maintenance are guidance for your mental and physical state.Other Recommendations Learn about balancing your alkalinity and kicking sweets good-bye once and for all.

Author Credentials Kris Carr is a former model, author, motivational speaker, wellness coach and is has battled cancer with conventional and holistic measures.

  13. 13. Raw Food Detox DietRecommended Duration This is broken into phases, so that you can stay where you need to or progress quickly – there are f ve phases total in RFDD. You begin in the pre-stages by making your way i through 5 Steps, followed by your transition level. Think independent study course with a few suggestions at each step and stage. Dietary Style The eventual goal is a mostly raw diet that integrates seafood and a moderate amount of cooked food. The approach is to systematically remove foods which Ms. Rose def nes as diff cult for our bodies to digest. i i Focus / Goal Have more energy and make more informed food choices. While eliminating caffeine, processed foods, complex sugars, smoking, and alcohol. Recipes Over 85 recipes in the book provide plenty of options. Vegan and raw recipes are combined with cooked meal options to give you plenty of chances to transition from phase to phase. The Plan Transition to your highest level – the ultimate raw foodie.

There is also a “real life” guide that helps guide you in social and work settings as you work through the diet plan.Other Recommendations Colonics and enemas are advocated for heavily in RFDD.
