My Thoughts-
 
When I agreed to review the book, I thought it was just another diet book. Boy was I wrong. I never realized how much toxins are out there and the book explains how we can get rid of them safely. I decided to give the information presented in the book a try. My mom and I went shopping and started to read the nutrition information while we shopped. The food we were eating was loaded with preservatives and other harmful ingredients. We thought that we were eating right. The author mentions in the book to cut out milk and since I love milk that will never happen. All the information presented was well researched and the book was easy to read. So far we have been following the guidelines in the book for fifteen days and we both have more energy. The fourteen day menu plan was helpful and there was a section that provided resources if we needed more information on a topic. I wonder how we will feel when we follow the program for thirty days?
