The New York Times bestseller, Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr is now available in paperback. It’s a green guide to help balance the pH of your body by consuming raw foods, green drinks, and lip-smacking smoothies.
This book is NOT written by a hyped marketer who sits down in front of his PC and keys in all the mumbo jumbo he can think of – just to earn a few bucks. Such books often present the lunatic opinions of the writer himself, and are usually opposite to what science or even common sense advocates.
On the contrary, Kris – who herself is a food expert – has teamed up with an army of highly esteemed writers and doctors including Dean Ornish, M.D. (founder of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute), Neal Barnard, M.D. (founder of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine), Kathy Freston, Alejandro Junger, M.D., Rory Freedman, Mark Hyman, M.D., Emily Deschanel, Sharon Gannon, Wayne Pacelle, Stacy Malkan, Dr. Lilli Link and Frank Lipman.

Take a look inside…
In addition to the tips on improving your diet (and why you should do it in the first place), Kris also shares some delectable juice and smoothie recipes. Let’s take a look at the table of contents:
- Chapter 1: This is your wake-up call… Pick up, gorgeous
- Chapter 2: pHabulous
- Chapter 3: Cupcakes, coffee & cocktails
- Chapter 4: Tushie & milk mustaches

- Chapter 10: Let the adventure cleanse begin
This is not a diet book!
Some people believe it to be a book featuring a diet plan; though Kris mentions her 21-day cleanse but this is not a diet book. You should actually consider it a road map to self-empowerment, packed with the writer’s compassion, enthusiasm and humor.
Things we liked about the Crazy Sexy Diet book
- The book has been critically acclaimed by the experts as well as readers
- Written by an expert and backed by a posse of qualified doctors, health practitioners and veteran writers
- All the necessary information is laid out in an interesting, compelling and clear manner
- The book doesn’t make fairytale promises but it does what it promises, provided you follow the guidelines
Things we didn’t like
- Unless you enjoy reading a sassy (and somewhat loutish) style of writing, you might feel the book to be some sort of marketing ploy because of the party-girl slang littered all over the pages
- The writer pompously mentions her political affiliation in the book – that was a surprise, and not a very pleasant one
- The plan is no doubt effective but at the same time it demands considerable time, money and effort
Do we recommend this juicing book?
Even with a couple of nuances, we really loved this book – the information inside is simply priceless. If some claims are to be believed, it can save your life and at least it will reduce the pesky cellulite. If you really want to live a healthy and joyful life, this book is worth a read.
