You know how it is. That special event just around the corner and you can’t fit into your designer jeans. You need a fool-proof, emergency weight-loss method that really works and works fast. So how do you safely and quickly lose those extra pounds?
Once again, renowned health pioneer and bestselling author Ann Louise Gittleman has a quick, no-strings-attached solution that is also good for you. She is always on the cutting edge of developing new methods to rejuvenate the body and facilitate weight loss and she’s done it again in The Fast Track One-Day Detox Diet. Gittleman takes the age-old method of fasting and incorporates it into a safe and healthy one-day plan that helps you lose weight fast, gets rid of toxins, and gives your body a cleansing boost to prepare it for even more weight loss down the road.
The plan itself is blissfully simple:
THE PREQUEL: Seven days of adding detox support foods to your diet to prepare your body for the one-day Fast
THE FAST: One day of sipping Gittleman’s “Miracle Juice,” a deliciously spiced mixture of herbs and spices specially designed to stave off hunger, balance blood sugar, boost metabolism, and replenish nutrients (no kidding, the juice is completely delicious)
THE SEQUEL: Three days of reintroducing supportive and immune-boosting foods into your diet to seal in the results
That’s all. There’s no need for a strict maintenance plan or more dieting because the Fast Track One-Day Detox Diet purges your body of fattening toxins so that you’ll keep losing weight once you’re finished. What’s more, if you can’t add those healthy foods to your diet in the Prequel and Sequel, Gittleman provides a list of replacement supplements that you can easily find in your local health food store or online.
So, use The Fast Track One-Day Detox Diet to jump start an over-40 metabolism, melt away vacation or holiday pounds, break a diet plateau, get in shape for that high school reunion or wedding, and even help heal a chronic illness. Even if you’ve been slow to lose weight in the past, the pounds will melt away quickly during your one-day fast. Inside there are recipes to prepare for the fast, shopping lists, and tips for sailing through the fast.
In addition, Ann Louise Gittleman shares the wisdom she’s gained from years of research on health, diet, and nutrition. You’ll find out about hidden toxins found in the environment and in everyday foods, and learn easy steps you can take to live healthier every day.

“Ann Louise Gittleman brings one of the oldest medical traditions - fasting - into the 21st century. Our bodies’ toxin load is so high and at last, someone helps us address this issue in a way that makes sense.”
—Fred Pescatore, M.D., M.P.H., C.C.N., author of The Hamptons Diet
“Brilliant, enlightening, and powerful are just a few words that describe Ann Louise Gittleman's Fast Track Detox Diet. This is not just a diet book but rather an extraordinary analysis of how we should eat in our toxic world. Offering ground breaking solutions that will definitely improve the status of your health, Ann Louise Gittleman confirms my own belief that detox is a poorly understood missing link in the quest for optimum health. I can't wait to try her program!"
—Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C, C.N.S Author of The Sinatra Solution: Metabolic Cardiology
“The Fast Track Detox Diet makes common sense and is on the cutting-edge of health. I predict that within the next five years it will be common knowledge that ‘fattening chemicals’ like the ones this program uncovers, are a primary underlying factor sabotaging our best weight loss efforts.”
—Hyla Cass, M.D., Author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health
“I consider cleansing and detox dieting to be the missing link in Western nutrition and a key to the vitality of our civilization. Ann Louise Gittleman is to be commended for getting the detox message out to mainstream Americans. I couldn't agree more with her message and her methods.”
—Elson M. Haas, M.D., author of Staying Health With Nutrition and The New Detox Diet
“As a researcher in the arena of environmental medicine, I fully endorse Ann Louise Gittleman's work and methodology in The Fast Track Detox Diet.”

—Mark Hyman, M.D., Editor in Chief, Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, co-author of Ultraprevention, and author of The Detox Box
“Gittleman’s The Fast Track Detox Diet brings together two problems that usually are treated separately - detoxification and weight loss - and does a credible job at answering the needs of both. In short, this is a good and useful book.”
— Dallas Clouatre, Ph.D., Author of Anti-Fat Nutrients
“Ann Louise Gittleman should be congratulated for her courage. This book is a must read.”
— D. Lindsey Berkson, Consulting scholar with the Center for Bioenvironmental Research at Tulane and Xavier Universities, and author of Hormone Deception
“Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman has, like me, devoted her career to bridging the gap between the halls of academia and the general public. Now she is bringing to the public the theory- which we've been hearing and discussing at cutting edge nutrition and medicine conferences for years- that chemicals in the environment can slow down the weight loss process and overburden the liver with toxins which have profound health effects. I'm going to follow her sober and sound advice to patients.”
—Jonny Bowden, M.A., C.N., C.N.S., author of Living the Low Carb Life
“Anything is do-able if you break it down into small enough components. That’s just what Ann Louise has done in her Fast Track Detox Diet. If you’ve been put off by complicated regimes or ineffective cleansing programs, this book will hold your hand and walk you through to a new, more vital ‘you.’”
—Nan Kathryn Fuchs, Ph.D., Editor, Women’s Health Letter
