A little different when it comes to Kritters reviews. I don't always get books that are nonfiction or are self helpish. I have read this from cover to cover like I would do any other book, but I have failed in that I wanted to complete the 5 day Fast Forward before I reviewed and many other things in life got put ahead, so I stand now to vow that I will do review part 2 after the 5 day Fast Forward is complete and the results are in!
Back to the review - I loved the combination of cold hard facts, real life people with their stories and practical recipes. With all three of these components, this book is more than just another diet book, I hate to even call it that - maybe more of a life guide book.
I would recommend this book to the readers who want to try a different lifestyle. I am not sure living with the former catering chef that I will be able to live this lifestyle full time for long term, but I could dabble in and out of it. I am glad to know what the power and cleansing foods are, so I can consciously add them to my diet on a weekly basis.
