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: a low-glycemic, 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.

Kris Carr is an inspiration to me. I am following some of her learnings and I feel better. I do not have cancer but want to eat healthy and always strive for the 80/20 rule..we are never perfect. I have recommended her books to many friends.

I ignored this book initially because of it's title. When I searched for "vegan" books the title came up in the list so I gave it a second glance. I've read it from cover to cover and found it informative as well as entertaining. Kris Carr has a great attitude and a true zest for life. She shares her experience and her knowledge and makes recommendations for living a healthier and fuller life. I love her approach and although I cannot make a full commitment to her lifestyle today she has inspired me to move closer to a vegan lifestyle. Well worth reading especially if you are challenged by cancer or another serious health problem. If you're not challenged health wise but want to improve your carbon footprint still worth the read.

Kris Carr celebrates life and veggies (all while taking on Cancer with a kick-ass attitude), striking a (pH) balance along the way! The book is a great read, as Kris is witty and very knowledgeable, and speaks from first hand experience.

Very well researched. I read the book in order to review it, and took notes along the way of all the important things I learned or want to try - and I'm excited to explore them further.

Peppered throughout are guest contributions from experts and each chapter ends with a testimonial from everyday folk (most of whom have turned to Kris's website for further support and inspiration) about how Carr's Crazy Sexy Diet has changed their lives for the better.

Highly recommended!
