Detox diets are all the rage – so we figured we would get the facts right from the expert. Dr Roni Deluz, from Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox fame came on the show to discuss her new book 21 Pounds in 21 Days, which is a NY Times bestseller.
Roni said to stay away from the detox diets that don’t contain any nutrients. She says that it is critical for you to ingest maximum nutrition every 2-3 hours. In order to do a good detox you have to eliminate toxins and processed foods. Drinking your nutrients is the best way to do this – she said that chewing and digesting takes up a lot of energy that your body could better spend healing you.
Roni took us through what happens when you go to Martha’s Vineyard and experience her detox in person. In the first day or two Roni and her staff do a lot of teaching – and it does get a little tough for some people. But by day 4 her clients start to feel better. And remember a detox is not forever – after the detox you have to slowly add food (and chewing) back to your diet. She said to: eat clean, eat good fats and proteins and drink lots of water.
In summary, Roni shared her weight loss tips about eating healthy foods that don’t require chewing and the health benefits of enemas. A good time was had by all so be sure to check out her websites www.21pounds21days.com and www.mvdietdetox.com
