My Slim-Down, Get-Glowing Detox
Forget juice cleanses. This eat-as-much-as-you-want diet promises weight loss and clear skin. But did it work?
Energy Level: Extremely low in the early morning, with highs between 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., a low between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., and a certain crash (i.e., I'm drooling on myself) by 11:30 p.m.
Skin: Relatively clear, but with consistent hormonal (at least, that's what I'm chalking it up to) breakouts on my chin for the past couple of months.
After a phone call with Dr. Chutkan, who is like my animated, slightly sassy, super intelligent new BFF who talked me through all of my concerns ("What will I do without cheese?"), gave me a few pieces of sage wisdom ("Nothing good happens at Starbucks"), explained why Greek yogurt is the devil (!) and told me how a sense of girl power inspired this book (more on that later). I feel motivated to give this diet a real shot.
