Sproutman's 7 Day Just Juice Diet: Detox, Lose Weight, Feel Great
Fantastic book! Very helpful, in every regard.
I love the comprehensiveness of this book! Seeing Steve, The Sproutman on the cover brought a smile to my face and a few tears to my eyes for the legacy he left for all of us.
This book is just "off of the charts good!" I have relied upon Steve's first book, "juice fasting and detoxification" for so many successful juice fasts over the years and this program gives the user everything needed to get on the road to amazing benefits! RIP Steve, you have made my life so much the better, you will be missed.

Post cleanse observations: I lost 5.5 pounds, the bags under eyes are GONE and my mouth felt fresh and clean all the time.
I followed the program consistently with the exception of altering the colon cleanse after 3-4 days. I used 6-8 oz coconut milk, 8 oz coconut water and then 16 oz water, AND I added organic vanilla extract and cinnamon! Yum! I exercised daily and changed it up.
We had guests over last night and I was concerned about my level of discipline as they brought teriyaki pork, guava chicken, teriyaki shrimp, chile rellenos, bread and Snapple! (Hawaiians) I juiced a fresh watermelon and muddled organic mint to make virgin Mojito's, a large organic salad with baby greens, tomatoes, cucumber, alfalfa and sunflower sprouts and a balsamic, olive oil dressing. I also offered fresh pineapple for dessert! I sat and conversed while they ate corn and taro chips, salsa, smoked salmon dip, cashews, etc. I drank watermelon juice and ate pickles and cucumbers!! I had NO desire to partake in anything else. I was so pleased with the evening how good I felt after dinner and this morning. The guests all complained about how stuffed they were after dinner! Duh!
I was only slightly hungry one evening when I went to bed, but that was my choice as I had my desire to lose some weight I had gained during my 3 year new relationship. He is a "foody" and restaurant owner, so it is a daily opportunity for discipline. Gratefully, the restaurants in AZ a...
