"In The Fast Track Detox Diet, the visionary nutritionist
Ann Louise Gittleman has skillfully transformed the age old concept
of fasting into a highly effective, rapid, but safe weight loss
program that is perfect for twenty-first century living."
Paula Baillie-Hamilton, M.D., Ph.D., author of Toxic Overload
"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."
--Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D., author of Death by Modern Medicine "Again, Ann Louise Gittleman has connected the dots in a very important and overlooked area that plays a part in our obesity epidemic - the toxicity-weight connection. Thanks to Ann Louise everyone can now have access to a program that can enhance their detoxifications systems, boost their metabolism and help them feel fantastic."
--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
