Crazy Sexy Diet!

I recently strarted reading the new Crazy Sexy Diet Book and I am IN LOVE. This book is so informative and it is packed with the truth about the typical American diet. Lets just say after reading this book, I am going to really think twice about what I eat! My next few posts will be recipes from the new book-stay tuned!

Top 15 Crazy Sexy Diet Tips
1. Get back to nature and back to the garden – preferably the organic garden – when affordable – when not, try to choose fruits and veggies that are less sprayed. You can find a Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides at There are over 80,000 chemicals in our world today, eating them and putting them on our bodies is a dangerous proposition.

2. Create an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle. Learn about pH, the acid/alkaline balance, and say goodbye to the SAD, acidic diet in favor of alkaline raw organic veggies, sprouts, green drinks, green smoothies, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, love and oxygen.

3. Make juice not war. Green smoothies are great too. My favorite juicer is the Breville Ikon, and the best blender is the Vitamix. Instead of your morning cup of Joe, (or nightly cup of booze) try filling your day with fresh vegetable juice.

4. Drink lots of clean, purified water.

5. Decrease the amount of animal products you consume (especially dairy products) and move towards more of a plant-based diet.

6. Refined sugars and processed starches are the devil – dump them. If it’s made in a lab it takes a lab to digest. If it has a shelf life longer than you, don’t eat it. Choose low glycemic foods as much as possible.

7. Shake your booty. Your lymph system, which carries away waste, needs you! Unlike your heart, it doesn’t have a pump.  Aerobics is the pump. Brisk walking is the pump. Yoga is the pump.

8. Give your colon a regular spring-cleaning. That’s right, flood your body with alkalinity and flush it of toxins. As the good stuff goes in the bad stuff should come out – on a regular basis.

9. Use natural skincare products. Your skin is your largest organ and what you put on it you literally drink in. Everything you consume either gets assimilated or eliminated. Chemical creams and perfumes tax your body big time.

10. Stress also creates acidity, so turn down the volume on chaos and turn up the joy factor up. Find and regularly commit to activities that help you bring it down a notch. Some ideas: meditation, gratitude journaling, guided relaxation or visualization CD’s, nature.

11. Snooze. Snooze. Snooze. Optimal hours: 11-7am.

12. Chew. Your stomach does not have teeth.

13. And stop eating late so that when you snooze, your body can focus on repair instead of digestion.

14. Set boundaries so that you have the physical and emotional time to take care of yourself – it’s not selfish, it’s self-preserving.

15. Make time for fun, for love, for laughter!


  1. I want to buy this so badly!! I think my sissy may get it, so Im hoping I can steal it from her for a while :)

  2. I loved this book too! For some reason tip #12 on there is my favorite haha

  3. I read that book and loved it! Kris has an entertaining way of writing and it's almost impossible for you not to like her.

    I'm kind of wanting to try the cleanse but.. I don't know. Do you think you'll test it out for a bit?

  4. That looks like a good diet book, because those are some awesome tips! I like the one about "if it's made in a lab, it takes a lab to digest it" haha so true!

  5. I adore this! Number 15 is my fave!

  6. I just did a review of the book on my blog and I agree, I really enjoyed it. It is an un-diet book, just the way I like it :)

  7. Sounds like a really great book! My problem is cutting out the extra sugars (sweets) and processed starches. I have a huge sweet tooth and I usually by processed things to satisfy it. My overall diet is really healthy but the pitfall is definitely sweets. I am working on this more and more each day!

  8. I really want to read this book. I've heard so much about it.
