Martha's Vineyard Holistic Retreat - Program For Cleansing the Body

in Diet

21 pounds in 21 days--who would not want to lose that much? That's the subtle, yet main, selling point of Martha's Vineyard Holistic Retreat or Detox Diet. Although its creator, Roni DeLuz, says that weight loss comes mainly as a bonus of following this plan, this, nonetheless, entices a huge number of people who are looking for quick fixes.

The original plan was to initiate cleansing of the body and to deliver appropriate and sufficient nutrition. The cleansing process focuses on digestive system while providing mediums to improve mental acuity, immune system and cellulite. It advocates redirecting how people think and behave about their foods and fosters good habits that can sustain permanent weight loss.

To arrive at the above results, the following must be followed:

-Incorporate loads of healthy stuff into one's diet. These include fresh vegetable juices, green drinks, teas and herb extracts, and vegetable and fruit purees.

-Rely on vegetable soups as main sources of sustenance. Vegetable soups are also the main fares of this diet. Specific vegetables such as beans, garlic, carrots, celery, cucumber, kale, summer squash, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, red cabbage, beets and nearly all types of green vegetables are recommended.

-Take advantage of the benefits of various nutritional products. This plan also recommends certain nutritional supplements, which include vitamin supplements, aloe vera juice and digestive enzyme supplements.

-Walk a mile per day. Followers of this diet plan are advised to walk for at least one mile everyday in a very relaxed setting.

The entire program of vegetable-and-fruit-based dieting runs for 3 weeks, and for each day, one can take no more than 1000 calories.

Effectiveness and safety issues:
This diet restricts calorie consumption to 1000 calories per day. When you get this low on calorie intake, you know that something bad will happen along the way. First, the body is not built for very scarce energy sources and second, you will lose weight while in this diet but weight will definitely bounce back once you're back with your normal diet.
