The author of the best-selling Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips
and Crazy Sexy Cancer Survivor
takes on the crazy sexy subject of
what and how we eat, drink, and think.
On the heels of Kris Carr’s best-selling cancer survival guidebooks and her acclaimed TLC documentary comes her new journey into a realm vital to anyone’s health. Infused with her signature sass, wit and advice-from-the-trenches style, Crazy Sexy Diet is a beautifully illustrated resource that puts you on the fast track to vibrant health, happiness and a great ass!
Along with help from her posse of experts, Carr lays out the fundamentals of her Crazy Sexy Diet: an anti-inflammatory, vegetarian program that emphasizes balancing the pH of the body with lush whole and raw foods, nourishing organic green drinks, and scrumptious smoothies. Plus, she shares the steps of her own twenty-one-day cleanse, and simple but delectable sample recipes.
In ten chapters with titles such as, “pHabulous,” “Coffee, Cupcakes and Cocktails,” “Make Juice Not War,” and “God-Pod Glow,” Carr empowers readers to move from a state of constant bodily damage control to one of renewal and repair. In addition to debunking common diet myths and sharing vital tips on detoxifying our bodies and psyches—advice that draws both on her personal experience as a cancer survivor and that of experts—she provides helpful hints on natural personal care, how to stretch a dollar, navigate the grocery store, eating well on the run, and working through the inevitable pangs and cravings for your old not-so-healthy life.
Crazy Sexy Diet is a must for anyone who seeks to be a confident and sexy wellness warrior.

Comments about Crazy Sexy Diet:
Every day advice on the way to slowly turn your junk food addictions into choice of healthy fresh foods and create a healthy body in which to live. Not a book to be rushed, and the suggestion is to start slowly, accept personal defeats and relapses, and just keep on. Sound, helpful advice. Highly recommended.
