Yes, unfortunately there really isnt much difference between this book and all other books that scream that one should eat clean and organic because the body can't tolerate gluten and processed food and those food with high additives. Its very interesting yet not something that I havent already heard.
The Fast Metabolism Diet
Look forward to giving you more sales from Savvy!
Whether one is ready to undertake the 3-week clean, Alejandro Junger gives a detailed description of why he decided to learn about nutrition and its effects on disease. He is compelling to take the 3-week clean and make it part of an annual habit. I was very satisfied with his message, narration, and explanations of each topic.
He has a lovely accent and clear english way.
The overall message about disease and how we forget to learn that in med school.
I am insisting that my 75-year old father reads this!
This started off as a very interesting book but soon started to making claims about human Physiology and toxins that remained unsubstantiated through the book. I've tried doing my own research on cleansing diets, functional medicine and other aspects like mucoid plaques, supplementation, leaky gut syndrome, acidity in the body, toxins and general science based health and nutrition and have found no support for the claims made in this book.
There is some science in there, I admit, and there are real world descriptions in there that make all this sound plausible and even tempting to attempt. But please be aware that colonics can be dangerous, and most of the advice given in this book is completely unsubstantiated and is derived from a lot of the detox pseudoscience that's already out there. Try this at your own risk and be careful. I would just recommend you eat your veggies and exercise regularly to get similar results. At least that has a lot of grounding in reality, unlike this book.
The author does a great job of explaining a very complex topic. Even if you don't adopt his program, you will learn a lot about how to improve your health.
Have not started the program yet, plan to do so soon,have to make sure I'm ready for the 4 weeks,equipment and recipe wise. The proposed ideas seem legit and the author seems to be profesdional. The story is a bit boring and repetitive at times. The book could have been 50% shorter. Yet it is still a great book.
