1. Hi Lindsay! I have participated in the 21 day cleanse and it was by far the best I’ve ever felt in my life. I had more energy, felt more mental clarity and totally eliminated cravings for crappy food. I’ve taken many of the principles of this cleanse and worked them into my diet. I’m actually planning on becoming a little more strict again because I’ve strayed a bit recently and have been feeling badly.

    As for the coffee, I know exactly how that goes. I used to be terribly addicted to coffee and tried to kick the habit many times before finally doing so with this cleanse. Now I only drink decaf once in a while as a treat. If you can, maybe try cold brewing the coffee. It has a smoother taste and is 70% less acidic! That may be a happy compromise on the coffee. 🙂

    Good luck I’m excited to read about your journey on the cleanse!

  2. I plan on doing this soon too. I love that book! I’ll probably start Sept 1st so I look forward to hearing how it was for you. I want to see if I have a gluten intolerance plus cut back on wheat and sugar so I figure this will be a good jump start! I’m already vegan. 🙂 Best of luck!

  3. Love Kris Carr. I did the cleanse when the book first came out-aside from eating really low glycemic, it wasn’t too terribly hard. But just love her writing and inspiration. I never did the vision board and some other parts, so will revisit it sometime!

  4. I would loveloveLOVE to hear more about this. I know that a good alkaline-acid balance is important, but I really know nothing about this, so this sounds like something I’d definitely be interested in. G’luck with all your goals.

  5. Hi! I just recently stumbled upon your blog when I was searching for vegan bloggers and I happened to notice that you are a runner as well! I actually just finished reading Crazy Sexy Diet and fell in love with it and therefore I am pursuing what it might take for me to become a vegetarian. Your blog caught my eye and while I haven’t had a chance to read through everything yet I can tell you that I am excited to follow you and continue reading. Oh, and your new baby is just precious! If you have any tips or advice for me I would love to hear it! Thanks!

    • Hi Lauren,

      I would love to be as much of a help as I can! I would say the first step is to start with Meatless Monday’s and then try eating meatless 2 out of 3 meals until eventually you eliminate meat altogether. Remember that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing create a goal and then take steps to achieve that goal- try and set yourself up to succeed! Also I would say a great way to transition is to start out with veg alternatives for protein such as Field Roast or Gardein and eventually work into trying things like seitan, tofu or tempeh and even making your own veggie burgers. Try lots of things to find what you enjoy the most. Feel free to email me if you have have any questions I’d love to help!

    • The Crazy Sexy Diet Cleanse is not about restricting calories. It’s all about cleansing your body for highly processed foods, sugar, alcohol, caffeine and animal products. This cleanse worked fine for me breastfeeding because I could eat lots of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains. I ate when I was hungry and didn’t restrict my calories. This particular cleanse is also a mind body cleanse so it’s not only about what you eat but about how you feel and think.
