Crash cleanses are the new crash diets; they work only in the short term and fail to address the underlying gut issues that can cause weight gain. Every woman wants a program that will keep her sane, slim, and satisfied. Following the success of her first book, Robyn Youkilis here focuses on how cultivating gut health can provide a sustainable way to stay slim. This plan will help women shed in a way that nourishes, not deprives; this is a lifestyle, not a diet.
Robyn's tone is never didactic; instead reading her book is like getting advice from a close friend-reassuring while gently prodding. This kind and friendly approach is what distinguishes her among the gut-health authorities.
The plan is simple, straightforward, focused, and fun. The core of the book comprises 75 recipes that are naturally slimming, good for your gut, and create a total body reset. For breakfast there are Kefir Papaya Smoothie and Blueberry Chia Muffins; lunch options include Cucumber Noodle Salad with Almonds and Mint and Turmeric Carrot Soup. Dinner features Lamb Tagine with Yogurt Sauce or Kale Spanakopita. There are even snacks like "Cheesy" Popcorn or Ginger Chai Cookies. Robyn's mission is to provide a full repertoire of everyday foods that will get you back to a balance in the long term.
