Weight loss has become a national problem that continues to grow. Detoxification is also getting more attention every day as people realize just how many toxins, pesticides and food allergies are part of everyday life. But what most people do not realize is that these are two sides of the same problem.
The body protects itself from these toxins by storing them primarily inside fat cells. So, eliminate the toxins and the weight comes off. Continue to consume toxins, pesticides and ignore food allergies and the weight piles on.
Nearly half a century ago, the first detoxification diet, the Master Cleanse, was published by Stanley Burroughs. Since then hundreds of thousands of people have done it. Glickman promotes the same regimen, but adds information on what to expect, which days might be difficult and what to do to overcome those difficulties.
Peter Glickman's first book on the Master Cleanse in 2004 sparked a revival and was translated into 8 foreign languages. This book will make the Master Cleanse go viral.
Based on Glickman's coaching of more than 2,000 people on the Master Cleanse; this book:
Shows you step-by-step how to get great results
Covers all the questions a new person would have
Teaches you how to be a great Master Cleanse coach
This book inspires the reader in an easy-to-read, fun style. It's the perfect book to coach you and your friends!
In 2009, CBS National News called Peter Glickman a "modern-day guru of the Master Cleanse." Having personally coached more than 2,000 people on the Master Cleanse and running the largest Master Cleanse forum on the Internet, he not only has the experience but also the mission to promote this wonderful, low-cost method of detoxification to the modern world and it comes through in his writing style. Peter's first successful book on the Master Cleanse (Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days) has been translated into eight foreign languages.
Peter has been interviewed by NBC's Today Show, CBS National Sunday News, Fox's Good Morning Show, Geraldo, The New York Times, The London Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, Us Magazine, Chica in Germany and radio stations as far away as Jamaica.
