Crazy Sexy Diet
Two years ago my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. I immediately went into combat mode compiling a list of every cancer-fighting food known to man. A friend of mine suggested I check out Kris Carr and her book, Crazy Sexy Diet.
The moment I started reading it, I was hooked. In Crazy Sexy Diet, author, Kris Carr shares her knowledge on how she stabilized her rare and incurable stage 4 cancer by changing the way she eats.
I knew my mother was in the best of care with the doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. I trusted their ability to treat and cure my mother, but I needed to be on the front lines of the battlefield with them. This book became my weapon.
At the time, my mother was seventy-one-years old, completely changing the way she eats after all those years was not going to be easy. So, I didn't push it on her. Instead, I read the book and educated my mother on the information I discovered. I created meal plans for her and explained how certain foods are better in helping her fight the disease than others, and how the wrong foods can actually contribute to it growing.
My mother responded well to the new outlook on food; when your life is on the line, you suddenly realize that you actually can live without eating certain foods. My mother didn't go completely vegan, but she did incorporate many of the food lessons taught in this book. She juices daily, eats organic (most of the time), and consumes a larger percentage of plant-based foods. When she purchases meat she makes sure it is organic, grass-fed and pasteurized, as do I.
Today, I am happy to say, my mother is cancer free!
Crazy Sexy Diet is intended for anyone who is dealing with cancer, cancer survivors, those who want to take a preventative approach, or anyone who wants to take their health to the next level. It offers a plant-based, vegan diet plan to help readers achieve ultimate health results. This book was definitely an eye-opener, not just for my mother, but for me as well. To this day I use it as a food guide. I am not vegan, but I do try to eat this way at least 70% of the time.
