Great American Detox Diet (Paperback) by Jamieson, Alex
What would happen if you ate nothing but fast food for an entire month? That's what filmmaker Morgan Spurlock attempted to find out by making his scathingly funny tongue-in-cheek documentary Super Size Me. A 33-year-old New Yorker in excellent health, he would eat nothing but McDonald's for 30 days, to gauge the effects on his body. The results were shocking: He gained almost 30 pounds, saw his cholesterol skyrocket, and developed chest pains and dangerously high blood pressure.
The Great American Detox is an everyman's version of Morgan's detox diet. Designed by vegan chef and holistic nutritionist (and Morgan's significant other) Alex Jamieson, it is the program that gave Morgan his health back. While doctors feared the damage might be permanent, Alex Jamieson knew otherwise. She regularly sees her detox diet help clients achieve radical improvements in their emotional, spiritual, and physical health. Now she has written it up for popular use. Filled with mouthwatering recipes, it is a flexible 8-weel program for weight loss, increased energy, allergy elimination, and other long-term health benefits.
