This book has a lot of helpful information and ideas to help cleanse the body. That said, I have found it more a supplemental book with innovative information, ie: the cranberry juice and lemon water ideas, than a real "followable" diet. It is hard to imagine cooking scrambled eggs in chicken broth for breakfast to avoid the fat we ususally cook it in. I was unable to do the whole Fat Flush Plan because of the unappetizing recipes and cooking methods. I did, however, use flax oil, cranberry juice, lemon water and other helpful ideas with Weight Watchers(on my own), and found great results.
If you follow the plan you will lose weight, but it is a pretty ruthless plan. I did feel better after I satyed on it for a month. But then summer came and so did fried chicken, potatoe salad, and BBQ pork sandwiches.
This is a very difficult plan to follow, but it is broken down into Phases and if you do manage to follow it for a few weeks I promise you will feel GREAT! At this point in my life I really use only parts of the plan to supplement my diet (short on willpower these days!) There are some great recipes and a lot of very useful info in this book.
