I like that this book recommended low sugar juices (in general).
This seemed much more healthy than other juices that add maple syrup or have lots of apples and carrots. I didn't find this too useful for where I am at now, but I'd trust it better than other juicing books if I decide to juice.

This book is full of a bunch of completely unsubstantiated pseudo-scientific discussion about toxins, but it is motivating me to use my new juicer even though I know it is all lies.

Perfect for : Personal Use

In a nutshell: This is a very well-thought-out book. We've been eating processed foods for so long, it is nice to know there is something we can do to help reverse some of the damage they are doing! There is a very strong message throughout the book, encouraging the reader to eat better by including more vegetables and fiber, and reducing red meat, sugar and highly processed foods. The authors have addressed all the main toxic areas in the body, providing helpful inform

Juicing can change your life- and compared to other juice/detox books I've come across, Cherie Calbom's is the most enjoyable and readable- from cover to cover. This book manages to give detailed information that really explains the scientific foundation and reasoning behind juice fasting, or just adding juicing to your lifestyle, in a fluid manner that solidifies the material in your mind. It makes sense.

The book includes easy-to-follow plans, with daily regiments for Colon Cleanse, Liver, Gal

If you are ill, adding a glass or two of juice daily to your diet and also looking into some of the various gallbladder and liver cleansing treatments recommended in this book is such a good idea.

Many of us that are very ill can't fast but we can and still should read up about juicing and detoxification.

This book has a very light tone but the content and advice was quite solid, and so I would happily recommend it to others.

(I'd also refer the author to the HFME website, which discusses many of t

If you are looking into juice fasting or even just adding a juice here or there into your diet, this is a must read! So full of interesting information on how truly damaged our bodies are from the American diet. It will inspire you to begin cleaning and healing your body from the inside out. I rented this book from the library but it will be a book I am going to go buy so I always have it on hand. It even has some recipes and cleansing examples. One of the best books on juicing out there!

I read chapter 3 first & it had helpful tips for juicing like use mostly veggies/don't overdo it on the fruits, and the recipes at the end were good. However, I went back to read from the beginning & was sad to see the promotion of pseudoscience like "no fluoride" & "vaccines are toxic" - I never would have read further had I known. ...more

This is a very informative book, and I definitely recommend it for anyone interested in getting healthier and losing weight without calorie counting. The author explains why we need to detox both body and mind for optimum health.

Awesome book. Easy recipes. Lost 15 lbs in 7 data. Detox works. Just know juicing is not cheap. Be prepared to spend $400+, but it was worth it.

Don't know why I bought this. Read 13% and got bored. Juicing didn't last long. Hence not bothered with book.

My wife bought the book along with a new juicer last year. We were looking at ways to better our health and started our first detox. The concept of detoxifying is amazing and the results are lasting and life-changing.

I lost 10 pounds and kept it off. With subtle changes to my diet, weekly juicing to supplement a meal or two and annual detox (this year we did a 3 day detox and lost 4 pounds), I've improved my health and feel much better. I owe some of that success to this book.

So first of all, anyone who tells you in a book that you should think hard before getting vaccines because of autism is someone whose advice you should NOT be taking, because people who cannot do research or understand medical research have no business giving you medical advice. But because I’m not stupid, and because I have read the work of people who I do give credence to who also talk about the benefit of raw foods and all that jazz, I figured I would keep reading. Given that I have so many w ...more

I never thought I could go without regular meals, but this was an easy and wonderful way to clarify the body and mind. It was easy to prepare the juices, overall the food was tasty, and I was NEVER hungry. Yes, and I lost about a pound a day - not to mention my skin is glowing and my mind has cleared. Will I juice again? You bet, this is an easy way to live a healthy lifestyle.

Cherie Calbom is a highly educated nutritionist that gives easy to understand information and directions for nutrition, juicing and fasting that I have not found in other books. Anyone interested in living a more healthy fulfilled life should have this book in their library. I have several of Cherie's books and every one of them is excellent.

Very informative! It gets a little too textbook like at times, but only because she not only tells you how to heal your body, but explains the how and why of it. Very good book with excellent information and great recipes.

I really enjoyed this book. It was full of interesting information and really made me think about I put into my body. The only reason I have it 4 instead of 5 stars is because some of the detoxes are so complex and a little confusing.

Incredibly helpful for juicing and fasting with recipes for smoothies along with benefits. And the lists of fruits and vegetables with nutrient value help to determine healthier choices for personal needs. Highly recommended reading.
