From the Back Cover
Detox diets are making news as the quickest, easiest way to shed pounds, boost your energy, and get yourself on a wellness track. Popular in the 1970s, cleansing fasts are again all the rage among celebrities like Gisele Bundchen, Gwyneth Paltrow, Stella McCartney, and Madonna.One of the key advocates of the health benefits of cleansing detoxes is Roni DeLuz, ND, a licensed naturopathic and health practitioner at Martha’s Vineyard Holistic Retreat, part of the renowned Martha’s Vineyard Inn. The idea behind DeLuz’s new detox plan is the belief that the foods we eat (along with the coffee, tea, and alcohol we drink and the air we breathe) contain harmful and toxic substances that accumulate in our bodies and need to be removed in some way. In 21 Pounds in 21 Days, DeLuz offers three different detox programs, including the original and most effective 21-day “MasterFast,” which promises a 21-pound weight loss in just three weeks and focuses on detoxification through antioxidants, fasting, stress reduction, and lifestyle changes. Also included in the book are:Maintenance plansDozens of easy, delicious recipesReal-life tipsAn extensive glossary of termsA guide to supplementsMeals consist of supplement-laden drinks, herbal teas, thick, delicious vegetable purees, and “live” juices, along with nutritional supplements, vitamins, and enzymes designed to keep the body’s systems stable and its cells nourished while harmful toxins are flushed out. 21 Pounds in 21 Days isn’t just for those looking to lose weight; everyone can benefit from this revolutionary detox diet that results in a clean, refreshed system that functions at its best.

The best detailed book and diet. I started in mid-September and I lost 50 pounds in two months byThanksgiving! I am not exaggerating or lying, I have the pictures to prove it. I went at two weeks segments while following it. When I started, which I will admit, like any other diet, was difficult because you are changing your habits and following a curtailed diet and formula. You just have to be easy on yourself. By the next morning I lost two pounds. I made it nine days and lost 17 pounds! Then went off for a couple of days but still followed the book and went back on the diet, going back and forth losing weight at an even clip. The book explains everything before, during and after, with the author’s story, who discovered and went through the exact same thing as you will or do. By Christmas I lost 60 pounds! That’s three months. I would go off the diet when there was an event, like Thanksgiving,Christmas and New Year then go back and forth around the events. The purpose for any diet was for my daughter’s wedding that coming June. I wanted to be slimmer, especially since pictures would be taken. By June I lost 80 pounds. I did not rush or worry about any crash to lose the weight, I took my time and surprisingly lost the weight rapidly. I got the hang of it and lost the most weight. It is amazing what your own body does when it gets a little help. The first thing you will notice, other than losing pounds, is “you are not hungry” once you get past the inital stage of the diet. Sleeping well and the natural energy will happen almost instant. Just remember, your mind will trick you into giving up and getting you to think this is for you, that is all of the junk luggage and sugar your body is holding. Again a great book and eating change.
I did this cleanse because a friend of mine recommended it and it is one of the best things I’ve ever done for my body. I did it for 15 days, and yes, I lost 15lbs, but more importantly than the weight I lost my body felt the best it has possibly ever felt. I’ve read some of the other reviews, people said it was disgusting or they were hungry all the time, and I should say that I did not follow the regimen to the letter. I bought Naked Juice instead of Martha’s Vineyard’s juices, I used supplements that I liked, I did a Yogic intestinal wash (Laghoo shankhaprakshalana) instead of enemas, I added a pinch of salt to soups I made that were too bitter, and I ate soups at restaurants when I went out with friends. I think in order to keep from failing you have to allow yourself some wiggle room. The end result was amazing … my friends all said my skin was glowing, my mood improved, my energy level increased, I wanted to exercise, and I felt fantastic in my body. And when I did start eating again, everything tasted SOOO GOOD! I enjoyed food on a level I never knew was possible. If I’d followed the cleanse exactly my results could only have been better, but the way I followed it I didn’t get hungry, I didn’t feel deprived, it wasn’t disgusting, and I still got all the benefits. I highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to improve their health, and the bonus is you’ll get an improved relationship with your body and with food.
I was always the chubby kid.. then the obese teen. As a teen I found my love, martial arts, and transformed into an athlete. After the serious injury, the misdiagnosis with delayed treatments then the life-threatening complications and myriads of cascading medical events virtually stripping my ability to participate in most common daily activities for more than seconds and minutes at a time, it is no wonder after 2 decades I find myself once again overweight, this time as “morbidly obese.” A couple years ago, determined to take control of my health, I literally purged my home of anything containing high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, hormones, anti-biotics, brominated vegetable oil and anything else I deem as “over-processed chemicalized sludge”. My weight stabilized then another medical saga left me despondent, drifting through life grazing on enough fare from the traditional Standard American Diet (very SAD) I gained yet more weight til I was “morbidly obese”. Returning to my strict adherence to avoiding the ingredients which causes me to refer to over-processed goods as “chemicalized sludge”, I again stabilized my weight. Figuring out hormonal body types helped lead me to enhanced supplementation- I lost an amazing 5.4% in just 2 weeks! ! Wow! Trying to boost my game, afterall I still cannot “workout” in the traditional sense, a friend led me to this book. Wow! So much I have come to know to be true is packed into a simple easy to follow manual. Whether you want to lose 21 pounds in 21 days or you need to lose 21% or in my case intend to lose over 100 pounds, get this book. It can literally help you empower yourself to save your life. 2015 Update – okay, so shortly after posting my previous review I had several major setbacks, both physically and then mentally. I fell off the horse after losing about 40 pounds. If I can do it while physically disabled, someone who can seriously work out may have a better chance. I’m back on track now, almost 3 years later. Since then I’ve learned the truth about SYNTHETIC vitamins such as FOLIC ACID and the truth of REAL vitamins such as FOLATE and WHY it’s such a huge importance particularly with over 60% of us having some form of the MTHFR genetic mutations (anyone with a personal or family history of diabetes, hypertension, cancer, neural tube defects, luekemia, ms, liver disease, cardiac issues, birth defects, autism, depression, chronic fatigue, anxiety or about any other issue, consider getting tested at a site like 23andme then upload the raw data to a site like Genetic Genie for REAL info on what you need to do for your health. So.. I’m back to REAL foods, those that are FREE of “enriched” synthetic vitamins and nutrients. I’m back on track.. and 20 pounds just melted away seemingly overnight (2 months). As long as I’m good about staying on track I loose weight. .. now the problem is staying on track.
