What I'm Reading Now: "Crazy Sexy Diet"

What I'm Reading Now: "Crazy Sexy Diet"

To begin, I don't really like to use the word diet.  In general diets don't work and create a negative and sometimes dangerous image in my head.  I tell my kids not to use the word diet or fat for that matter.

I knew of Kris Carr from one of my yoga intensives and figured there was nothing to lose when I grabbed Crazy Sexy Diet off the "Just Returned" rack at the library.

According to Karr, "The Crazy Sexy Diet is a low fat, vegetarian - or better yet, vegan-program that emphasizes balancing your body's PH by eating more lush whole foods, low-glycemic fruits, raw veggies, alkalizing green drinks, and super-powered green smoothies.  By increasing the amount of alkaline foods you eat while decreasing acidic foods (animal products, processed sugars and starches, etc.) you reduce inflammation and boost immunity and life force."

Her story is one I can relate to.  Carr was diagnosed with cancer at age 31.  Since then she cleaned out her body by eliminating fast food and alcohol with a vegan diet. Seven years later she still has cancer, but it's stable.  Thanks to the diet and lifestyle she feels and looks better than ever.  She claims to have endless energy, a strong immune system and much happiness.

The comprehensive book includes everything you need to transform your habits including a 21-Day Cleanse.

Am I ready to 100% commit to this change?  Are you?  Do you notice a connection between diet and health?  I am really interested in this topic and would love to hear your experiences.
