Review of The 30-Day Faith Detox

I just finished reading

The 30-Day Faith Detox: Renew Your Mind, Cleanse Your Body, Heal Your Spirit

And I was underwhelmed.

It’s interesting to me that some of the reviews said they expected this book to be more on faith, but that it was more about food and physical detoxing. I found it to be just the opposite.

There were a handful of smoothie and juice recipes in the back and while each day the author gave you a meal plan, it was basically the same every day and a plant based diet. (Which of course is a good idea, but hardly novel.)

And on her Facebook page most of the comments people wrote in about dealt with how much weight they lost. (And I would expect that after 30 days on a plant based diet, so no great surprise there.)

But personally I thought it had very little about eating and health.

I think she was trying to tag along on a popular theme now – the fitness/wellness world. I would imagine that authors who are in the business of cranking out books need to come up with something catchy all the time. (For instance look at all the adult coloring books coming out that are now “devotionals” or some other current theme.)

I do feel that if you took the time to read the financial part or the section on social media and really questioned yourself about what you are doing in those areas and work on making changes, it would serve you well. But you only get one day to do it in and I don’t think it needs to be tied into what you are eating.

Since the author is a certified nutritional counselor and also a pastor – maybe she should write a book in each area and not try to combine them.
