I was already a strong proponent of real, whole foods before opening this book, but I was interested in the clean eating approach and the anti inflammatory diet because of some digestive issues I ve been fighting for a couple of years I m only weeks into following the guidelines in this book, and it will likely be a few months before I know if this approach is the answer for me so I can t speak to its efficacy per se but I can share my top impressions of, and responses to, the book s content I was already a strong proponent of real, whole foods before opening this book, but I was interested in the clean eating approach and the anti inflammatory diet because of some digestive issues I ve been fighting for a couple of years I m only weeks into following the guidelines in this book, and it will likely be a few months before I know if this approach is the answer for me so I can t speak to its efficacy per se but I can share my top impressions of, and responses to, the book s content I ll review the nutrition and exercise components of the book separately.Nutrition1 If you are just getting started in the world of whole foods, this book is an excellent choice It gives a broad, comprehensive overview of our cultural understanding of healthy eating, our modern dietary habits, and our reliance on processed food and it speaks to why we need to shift our perspective If, however, you re already well informed in this area, you already eat vegan a couple of days each week, and or you live in Portland, you might feel like the authors are preaching at you The content is extremely repetitive, and their use of Clean Cuisine as a proper noun when another noun, like clean eating or whole foods eating would have been sufficient feels rather pompous and off putting.2 Because the intended audience for this book is people who are new to the world of clean eating, the implementation plan for the diet is presented in phases over an eight week period This is fantastic for the intended audience but rather inaccessible to the rest of us I wanted to dive into week 8 from the get go, and to do so, I had to read through all eight weeks and jot down the changes from each week so I could make a summation I respect that they don t want to overwhelm people who are just getting started that gentle approach is so needed But it would be helpful if they had an addendum that summarizes all of the nutrition changes, supplements, exercise, and other practices tips in one place.3 My favorite thing about this book is the incredible amount of freedom that the authors give you in crafting your eating plan Their advice is deeply sane, and they even admit that vegan cheese is not good There are some very tasty vegan cheeses out there, but let s be real for a moment That is not cheese It s something else altogether Still want to eat meat every day Go for it, but try to eat vegan the rest of the day, and make sure your choices are pastured, organic meats Hate steel cut oats Try brown rice for breakfast instead Don t like spinach salad Use other lettuces for lunch, and try cooked spinach with dinner 4 The recipes live up to the hype They promise flavorful clean meals and they deliver I never had the misconception that clean vegan meals were dull and tasteless, so they didn t need to sell me on this, but it s handy to have a quick reference of recipes right in the book especially for green smoothies and breakfast smoothies of which you can never have too many variations, in my opinion I especially loved their tip to make chopped salads and you don t need a 30 mezzaluna to do it A chef s knife works quite well.5 To make this way of eating work for you, you will need a high powered blender There s really no way around it The authors recommend a variety of other equipment like the mezzaluna but don t get overwhelmed Put your pennies toward a Vitamix and ignore the rest.ExerciseI will preface by saying that this is where the book fell apart for me If I could go back in time, I would just skip this chapter altogether, because after reading it, it was difficult not to throw the baby out with the bathwater and throw this book into the library donations pile But I knew that the nutrition information was solid, so I can still recommend this book for that purpose while wishing that they had simply stopped at chapter 7.1 The authors give so much freedom in the nutrition section and then offer zero freedom in exercise No other workouts are acceptable, and they make snide remarks about other approaches to fitness That gave me a bad taste in my mouth from the get go Anyone who has ever gone to the gym, taken a fitness class, or even walked around the block knows that you ll never do a form of exercise you don t enjoy Exercise is where we need the most freedom, not the least.2 The tone of this section is incredibly condescending and, frankly, a bit insulting They present their exercise regiment as the only acceptable form of exercise and if that isn t a red flag to you, it should be and then go on to provide the scientific evidence for this claim but many of the conclusions that they draw are associative, the examples they mention are anecdotal, and or the connections they draw are misleading For example, they make several digs at marathon runners, and then talk about how low intensity, steady cardio isn t the way to burn fat or strengthen your body I don t know how many marathon runners you know, but all of the ones I know are constantly pushing themselves running high intensity intervals, pushing for a faster mile pace, etc If they want to make a case that a brisk walk around the neighborhood isn t doing much to help you and they do say that directly and I havethoughts on this below , that s fine, but don t drag serious athletes into your argument And further, when was the last time you met a marathon runner, master swimmer, distance cyclist, triathlete, etc who didn t have a strong, lean body It s absurd to discourage these people from doing the exercise they are passionate about, and by doing so, you risk alienating them from a nutrition plan that could harmonize beautifully with their athletic training.3 There is substantial evidence that having an active life is just as, if not , important to cardiovascular health than doing intense workouts And yet the authors don t speak to this at all and, in fact, contradict that research altogether and completely discount the value of brisk walks, bike riding, etc Their tone is belittling when they speak of these activities I know that we ve all played the oh, I walked to the mailbox today, so I can totally eat that cookie card, but at the same time, you can t substitute 90 minutes of weekly exercise for intentionally being active in your daily life There needs to be balance here I completely agree that optimal fat burning does not occur during a 20 minute walk around the neighborhood but that walk likely had countless other health benefits, and activity is always better than non activity Again, I think this speaks to the complete lack of freedom that the authors present in this section of the book.4 The workouts themselves are good similar to Jillian Michaels and other workouts in that vein but make no mistake These are not 30 minute workouts The authors talk at great length about how short workouts are important and how their workouts will have you in and out in 30 minutes, but that simply isn t the case Each workout consists of a warm up, routine, and cool down At first, I expected to complete all three in 30 minutes but as soon as I saw that the warm up was 10 minutes, I knew that couldn t be the case In fact, the routines alone are all a bit longer than 30 minutes, so by the time you ve added on a 10 minute warm up and a 10 minute cool down, you re at nearly an hour all told The authors emphasize the importance of stretching which is often so overlooked, to the detriment of many aspirant exercisers , but if your workout has already taken 10 15 minutes longer than you expected, you re likely to skip your cool down altogether because you need to hop in the shower and get to work on time.Now, don t misunderstand me I have no problem with hour long workouts I think that 60 minutes is a perfectly reasonable amount of time to spend exercising, especially if you re only working out three times each week But the expectation that they set in the description is only going to cause disappointment and frustration People are going to feel like they re doing the routines incorrectly because it s taking them so long, or they re going to get frustrated because they didn t allocate as much time as they needed to complete the routine I wish that the authors had simply described these as fast paced workouts that can be completed in 45 60 minutes, depending on which routine you do and how much time you allocate for cool down stretching at the end.5 If you want to do these workouts at home, you re going to need to invest several hundred dollars into equipment In that way, these workouts are far less convenient than Jillian Michaels and others that offer similar benefits and a similar exercise style I am of two minds about this book it had some good content but yet had some major failings.The Good strong nutritional content, some good recipes I especially liked the salad dressings and a well structured overview of health principles For someone just starting on lifestyle improvements, this would be a great guide I personally appreciated the reminders of the nutritional value of flax, chia seed and hemp seed I also appreciated the low meat but not completely vegan approach Often b I am of two minds about this book it had some good content but yet had some major

improvements, this would be a great guide I personally appreciated the reminders of the nutritional value of flax, chia seed and hemp seed I also appreciated the low meat but not completely vegan approach Often books fall squarely into the pro con animal protein camps neither of which align to my ethical, nutritional or lifestyle needs I also had to laude them for admitting that some things, like cheese, just can t be substituted well through other forms eg vegan cheese The Bad incredibly lame title, constant and annoying proprietary reference to itself Clean Cuisine eating , and too much personalization of the writers as if we are all best friends and care so much about their personal stories They also could have dropped the whole exercise section if I was looking for exercise suggestions, this would likely not be my forum My biggest complaint however is that I am SO turned off by the whole 8 weeks to a better you style that the book takes, as if these writers hold The One Key to lifelong health and happiness This constant smug undercurrent just like all of the recent health books a la Atkins, South Beach, Paleo, Starch Solution, Skinny Bitch, etc thoroughly weakens the whole premise and drastically lessens their credibility Eating healthy is a lifetime approach and anyone who says if you eat this way, the pounds will just fall off and you will immediately feel like a million bucks, is selling me a fable I know this is a marketing ploy and needed to sell books, but still if you believe the content and are writing the book to share your insight, you should find it critical to maintain your integrity and not sell out.bottom line read it for the good nutritional content, but expect to be thoroughly annoyed by the authors storytelling and marketing style This is a great book It mixes heavy nutrition with anecdote and recipes and exercise but everything is at a deep level If you read this book, you can t help but get a very solid understanding of nutrition The book advocates that some animal products are okay I am vegan but helps you to understand how to use animal products in a way that supports health my hubby and son are voracious carnivores If you are new to clean eating the book provides helpful tips on phasing in changes I really This is a great book It mixes heavy nutrition with anecdote and recipes and exercise but everything is at a deep level

ideas A lot of other books just vegetarianize meat recipes and I wasn t looking for that I am pretty well versed in clean eating and vegan vegetarian principles and still found quite a bit to write down Well done
