book. Following her husbands supersize me diet. She said on his third week his liver was like pate !!!!!.

She is a vegan so the book should be interesting?. The Book is called Detox Diet.

Thats pretty cool, as she was a vegan chef, but I can't help but think that she's just trying to cash in on the shows success. :)

Oh, so they are married now? Good for them :)

I wonder if the book will include/be full of meat and dairy :rolleyes:

One would think that was true, right? Sadly, it is not. She cooks with flesh and secretions. :mad:

I'll post links to threads here on veganforum in a bit that discuss this or you can search under "vegan chef". In addition, you could go to her website and check it out as well. :(

She uses an interesting play of words. She's vegan, and she's a chef. So she's always described as a vegan chef. I always think of Ben Kenobi when she describes herself as he once said, "So what I told you is true... from a certain point of view.

She should say, "I'm a chef who happens to be vegan and sometimes caters
to vegan customers."

It was only very recently that I watched "Supersize Me." Am I the only one that found Morgan Spurlock to be incredibly irritating?

I heard about this book in an interview she gave to Satya magazine.

I was disappointed that a piece about her was not on the DVD version of SUPERSIZE ME as she said in the article.

Most bonus material on a DVD is usually cutting room garbage, but there is good stuff on SUPERSIZE ME.

I particularly like Spurlock interviewing Eric Schlosser ( author of FAST FOOD NATION )

Carol Vorderman is a vegetarian (vegan maybe?) and her's is one of the bestselling detox books in the UK. It's sad to see meateaters feel so much better after a couple of weeks on this diet, and then celebrate with steak and chips. As if they're 'earnt it' somehow.

the vegan way of life is so good for me, that if i have a vegan sugary treat/dessert, i feel lethargic and low, but as soon a i regain back to normal eating (what would otherwise be a detox to any other way of life) i feel fab and feel great that i reward my body everyday, rather than just "2 days b4 my holiday so i can look great in that bikini".. if u see what i mean??!!woohoo to veganism

How is this a "detox" and what are you "detoxing" from? That looks like what I may eat on a typical day when I'm too busy to eat more :D

why isnt it a detox????

vegechic

usually i et more heavy foods,wheat,sugar,caffine,so in my opinion it is a detox,there are no toxins.
it may look like what you eat every day as you eat healthily but i didnt so i plan to stick to this so it will be just 'healthy eating'.

well i kindof thought this didnt seem like a detox either when i first saw this. adding cooked food to your detox doesnt seem like youre helping your body to detox. what you ate seemed great, for everyday, but to detox i would prefer personally to eat just raw foods (purely organic to stray away from all chemicals, and pure filtered/spring/mineral water and as fresh food as possible to gain the most nutrients possible from the food) as theyre the easiest for your body to digest, giving it the time to actually detox itself rather than having to process the foods you ingest. lemon is also a great addition to your water to help cleanse your liver. and probably room tempurature water so your body doesnt have to work on warming it up.

cc, regarding detox, how long do you usually reccommend your clients to detox? i always would like to do one but never know how long to do it for. i mean, i know theres a variation. like a 7 day detox or a month long detox. im sure it varies depending on the person.

i am eating all organic,lemon in water(filterd).
and only cooked food is lentils,wheat free pasta.
this is a small portion of diet the bulk is veg/fruit.

i dont like the idea of eating totally raw.

to be honest maybe this isnt a detox then but its healthy eating,but considering my diet wasnt brill its a detox for me i guess. :)

Hey Ileana!

I found this one to be pretty helpful...

fasting & detox (http://www.althealth.co.uk/services/info/misc/fasting1.php)

I hope it helps!

Please let me know how it goes or what else you've found to be useful!

Terra, thanks that article was really interesting. I've been toying with the idea of a fast for a while now, to clean up my head just as much (maybe even more so!) as cleaning my innards! I would really like to try a water only fast which was mentioned in the article, but it wasn't advised as much as the juice fast. Does anyone know if a water fast of maybe 3 or 4 days would harm me, would there be as much as a benefit of 3 to 4 days as opposed to a longer fast of 6 or 7 days? Has anyone here ever done a water only fast, and is it helpful?
