What is the Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr all about? Basically, the Crazy Sexy Diet is a low-fat, vegetarian program that focuses on balancing the body’s pH level. According to the book, this can be done by consuming more whole foods, fruits that are low glycemic, raw vegetables, alkalizing green drinks, and green smoothies. How will this help? By avoiding or reducing your consumption of animal products, starches and processed foods and eating more alkaline foods instead, you will help improve your immune system and thus improve your health. The dangers of eating too much animal products on the person’s health and environment as well as the downsides of alcohol and caffeine intake are also further explained in the book.
What foods should you avoid? During the 21-day cleansing, you will have to avoid alcohol, caffeine, refined sugar, artificial sweeteners and other food chemicals and processed foods. Instead of eating these foods, you can eat; green juice, green tea, green smoothies, low glycemic fruits, raw and steamed vegetables, wheatgrass, seaweed, chickpeas, black beans, pecans, almonds, lentils, coconut, tofu, gluten-free pasta, oats, avocado, pumpkin seeds, miso, tahini, quinoa, buckwheat, wild rice, dark chocolate, olive oil, flaxseed oil, raw and organic agave syrup, stevia, yacon and herb.
Just like with any diet plan, you also need to incorporate this diet program with exercise. According to the book, the body will heal faster by eight times if you do exercise on a regular basis. As we all know, exercise is good for the body. Exercising regularly improves blood circulation and helps the body get rid of acid waste products. It is recommended that you do some aerobic or cardiovascular exercises, for at least thirty five minutes, 3 to 5 times a week. To keep you motivated, choose exercises that are fun for you. For instance, you can do karate, hiking, yoga, etc.
Advantages and Disadvantages
The good thing about the Crazy Sexy Diet is that it is flexible. It is not forcing you to become a strict vegetarian or to be a raw foodist. You can give in to food cravings occasionally. You are encouraged to live a healthy lifestyle by eating more fresh and unprocessed whole foods. And by living a healthier lifestyle, you will be less prone to common illnesses and diseases. The diet also has a balanced approach to wellness. It does not only focus on what foods to eat but also on the importance of stress management and keeping the mind healthy. It is also a very inspirational book especially for cancer patients as they may be able to relate with what the author has gone through.
However, Crazy Sexy Diet isn’t really focused on weight loss but more on changing a person’s lifestyle in order to live a healthier life. The dramatic adjustment in eating habits may also be very difficult for most dieters. But then again, dieting is never easy. Preparing the food may also take a lot of time. Readers should also not have the misconception that this diet is a cure for cancer.
