As I type this, 21 Pounds in 21 Days: The Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox is the third best selling book on Amazon.
So if you are currently trying to lose some weight and improve your health, should you buy 21 Pounds in 21 Days? Before we can answer this simple question, let’s ask and answer some other questions:
Question: Is it possible to lose 21 pounds in 21 days? Answer: Yes.
Question: Should you attempt to lose 21 pounds in 21 days? Answer: No.
Question: What is wrong with losing 21 pounds in 21 days? Answer: Everything.
To avoid a number of rather unpleasant side effects such as loose skin, sluggish metabolism, lightheadedness, mood swings, and hormonal imbalance, just to name of a few, it is recommended to lose about 2 pounds a week.
The reason? This rate of weight loss gives your body enough time to adjust and does not stress your digestive and other systems.
Question: How do detox diets work? Answer: They do not.
Question: Is there such a thing as a safe and healthy detox diet? Answer: No.
Furthermore, detox diets are unnecessary and can even be harmful to your health. How so? It all goes back to losing 21 pounds in 21 days, or any other rapid weight loss method.
I do not want to bore you with a biology lesson, so I will just this: As you lose weight, your body breaks down fat, which is eventually excreted from your body in a number of ways. But did you know that your body fat is actually a safe place for all those toxins that you may have gotten from processed foods?
So when you suddenly lose a lot of body fat, where do you think all those toxins are going to go? That’s right, in your blood stream. Now let’s think about this for a second or two. Is it a good idea to saturate your blood with toxins? No!
Your kidneys, liver, intestines, and skin have been designed to eliminate waste from your body. They have been doing so for millions of years, or we would not be here.
If those organs are healthy and working properly, you already have the best possible “detox” system the nature has to offer, but when you quickly lose a lot of weight, you risk overwhelming your natural “detox” system with toxins – which can cause anemia, headaches and other health problems.
Question: So should you get 21 Pounds in 21 Days: The Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox? Answer: You tell me.
