Not based on science or evidence

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.

Not much difference...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

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.

What other book might you compare Clean - Expanded Edition to and why?

The Fast Metabolism Diet

Good listen while I walk

What did you love best about Clean - Expanded Edition?

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.

Would you be willing to try another book from Alejandro Junger? Why or why not?

yes

What about Alejandro Junger’s performance did you like?

He has a lovely accent and clear english way.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The overall message about disease and how we forget to learn that in med school.

Any additional comments?

I am insisting that my 75-year old father reads this!

Detox made easy!

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.

Great information

I downloaded this audio book after my friend followed the clean program for three weeks and she highly recommended it. I'm enjoying the information and look forward to starting this program in the next couple of weeks.

Following the clean Program transformed my health

Any additional comments?

The Clean Program, as read by Dr. Junger, can transform your health. Listening to him describe the program, the reasons and science behind it gives you buy in before you start trying to carry it out.

Great book

I enjoyed reading the book. I read the book while listening to the audible book. I am impressed with the breadth and depth of Dr. Junger's knowledge of the subject. I was a little put off by the promoting he was doing about the program and the products he sells throughout the book. I really would prefer to read the study separately from the promotional materials. I really believe in clean. I don't have to be beat over the head to do it.

Seems to be an effective program

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.
