Women long for the kind of beauty and health that can only come with clean cells. Yet many women find detox plans difficult to follow and are disappointed with the results. In her ten years of working privately with celebrity clients at leading Manhattan spas, Natalia Rose has discovered that traditional detox plans don't work for adult women because their microbial balanc

I walked into this book completely ready to devour whatever she was going to throw at me. I am a relatively new and avid juicer with a strong appreciation for the whole detox idea. The book was recommended by someone I deeply respect and admire. Even after reading reviews that indicated I'd be disappointed with the lack of citations, I thought, "Who cares? I like what she's saying and I will happily eat it up, citation free."

And then I started the book. Plant-centric, raw, food, YES, absolutely.

I am 5 days into this plan. I love this lifestyle right now.

I read the Raw Food Detox Diet first, then this book. I am used to a strict diet because I just a came off of a bodybuilding contest prep plan.

My biggest concern is how my body holds up without my Whey Protein now. Rose states that we should get adequate protein from the nutrition plan. As far as energy, I have plenty to accomplish my morning cardio and evening weights.

I am not calculating my calories or macros anymore, which is why I

Liked: It was a decent book that makes sense. Nothing too fancy, but I'm sure that was the point.

Disliked: She says "raw goat cheese" too many times than I can bear. Not that I have something against "raw goat cheese", I'm sure some people live on "raw goat cheese". However, it kinda gets on my nerves when I read "raw goat cheese" on every other page. We get it, YOU LOVE RAW GOAT CHEESE!

This diet is similar to the Fit for Life approach to diet/eating: only fruit, fruit juices, veggie drink, water or green tea until 12 noon, and then well combined meals for lunch and dinner. well combined meaning basically no starches and proteins (flesh) eaten together. I am usually starving by noon, so I may need to add v8 to my mornings! The only thing I don't agree with is she says no soy. WTF? Screw that! So far I feel a little bit better(week 1) - I added 16 oz of decaf coffee to my mornin ...more

I have read Natalia's other books and this one is my favorite by far. Now if I can only work up the energy to go to the store and buy the sh**tload of produce required to do the plan...

i was recommended this book by a friend as a treatment for my chronic IBS. she thought maybe it's a yeast problem in my guts. i am so frustrated with my digestive tract at this point that i thought a clean start might be a good idea. i was disappointed to see that this book reads more like a weight loss panacea - it will eliminate cellulite, give you radiant glowing skin, shed pounds, and so on - when i'm really more interested in taking care of my body than worrying about how inadequate it look ...more

Natalia's voice is genuine and caring, somewhat like talking to a friend. The information is very similar to some other health and wellness titles available, but it lacks the same scientific explanations/references. What differentiates this book from those is Natalia's voice, its so much friendlier! I would suggest this, or her other titles, in conjunction with one or more of the more scientific books available.

Here is a horrible scam of a book to get you to buy a Breville Juicer and also make you think the most revolting imaginable salad is your ticket to being a size zero stick figure like the author. Do you know what kind of salad Natalia Rose thinks is delicious and wants you to have for lunch? I will tell you.
romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cinnamon, ground gloves, garlic, fresh oregano, thyme, lemon juice, stevia, olives, salt and pepper.

I'm not really a fan of 'diets' or diet books, but this one is pretty reasonable. Having a lot of food sensitivities already, it's not that big of a change for me. I imagine it'd be a tougher transition if I were coming from a McDonalds lifestyle or something similar though. When I follow this plan, I feel awesome, without fail. (With the exception of a couple/few days in the beginning while adjusting). I'd say as a detox, I think it's really, really good. It's tough, but doable. And sustainable ...more

This is a bit too extreme for me, but I definitely found myself learning and holding on to ideas. If I hadn't already gone "clean" and "real," it would be way too much. But I'm glad I read it and would recommend it as an option for those who are interested. More info and education certainly can't hurt.

part fact, part fiction. stevia and raw goat cheese in the amounts the author suggests cannot be healthy. some of the advice is interesting, but i wouldn't go whole hog with this plan.

Really interesting (although it seems pretty radical) plan and I think I will try something very similar for a month after I get back from the beach (and then we'll see how it goes after that!) She basically eats vegan, and uses the "food as medicine" theory of eating...what we eat should heal us. She doesn't have strictly vegan recipes (she includes fish and occasionally good quality beef and chicken) but she puts together a comprehensive and extremely high plant-based diet to cleanse the syste ...more

Although the book is based on good-ol' common sense, I like the ideas enough to go out and buy a juicer. I'm looking for ways to find more friendly VEGETABLES beyond my favorites. I'll let you all know after 30 days if following the directions Natalia Rose lays out gives me a High Pro Glow. I'm all for learning new ways to tantalize my taste buds sans food hangover! Natalia Rose's style is fun and sensible. Anyone for raw veggie "sushi" rolls?

Although not quite ready to take the full-on plunge to the4-week detox the book lays out a transition to a more natural, clean and raw foods diet. I like the fact that Rose mixes in cooked and raw foods and the plan is sound and healthy, featuring lots of self-care habits and practices. Plus anytime you can have wine and dark chocolate as treats on a detox plan is good with me. ;-) Will be trying some of the recipes.

Lots of great advice for women on how to cleanse your body - using raw foods. I love Natalia Rose's simple, down-to-earth advice, especially when the cleanse includes dark chocolate and wine!

Some good advice although I didn't agree with everything. A good transitioning book to the mostly raw / vegan lifestyle.

“You will know if you are too acidic if you get sick often, get urinary tract infections, suffer from headaches, and have bad breath and body odor (when you do not use antiperspirant). Acidosis is the medical term for a blood alkalinity of less than 7.35. A normal reading is called homeostasis. It is not considered a disease; although in and of itself it is recognized as an indicator of disease. Your blood feeds your organs and tissues; so if your blood is acidic, your organs will suffer and your body will have to compensate for this imbalance somehow. We need to do all we can to keep our blood alkalinity high. The way to do this is to dramatically increase our intake of alkaline-rich elements like fresh, clean air; fresh, clean water; raw vegetables (particularly their juices); and sunlight, while drastically reducing our intake of and exposure to acid-forming substances: pollution, cigarettes, hard alcohol, white flour, white sugar, red meat, and coffee. By tipping the scales in the direction of alkalinity through alkaline diet and removal of acid waste through cleansing, and acidic body can become an alkaline one.

"Bear in mind that some substances that are alkaline outside the body, like milk, are acidic to the body; meaning that they leave and acid reside in the tissues, just as many substances that are acidic outside the body, like lemons and ripe tomatoes, are alkaline and healing in the body and contribute to the body's critical alkaline reserve.”
