Amazon best-seller is now in a second print run, Go Clean, Sexy You not only serves up a collection of delicious recipes, but off ers a holistic approach on how to live a healthier life—putting whole foods into your body, detoxing every season to regularly cleanse your system, associating with those who fuel you not bring you down, and managing stress with activities that bring you back to balance.
A certified health and nutrition coach, author Lisa Consiglio Ryan provides straightforward guidance on how to overcome the obstacles that keep you from losing those last ten pounds, make you feel exhausted every afternoon, and compel you to indulge in unhealthy habits. Spending years struggling with a growing arsenal of health-destroying conditions that ranged from fi bromyalgia, hypothyroidism, candida and rosacea to cystitis and tons of allergies, Lisa decided to turn to nutrition and lifestyle to reclaim her health. Then pursuing her education with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, she turned her personal quest into her vocation with the launch of Whole Health Designs.
As a nationally acclaimed wellness expert, Lisa has worked with thousands in her detox programs. Her approach incorporates easy-to-adopt eating habits, free from counting calories and fat grams. As you navigate through the seasons with Lisa’s whole food–based detox plans, you’ll be tapping into your body’s wisdom, forming sustainable habits, and developing loving, respectful relationship with your body. Not only will you feel better, you’ll look better too!
"Go Clean, Sexy You is a must-read for anyone wanting to live healthy, feel their best, and love what they cook and eat. The recipes in Lisa's cookbook are simple, yet full of tasty ingredients that are both healthy and satisfying." ―Melissa Mayer, Editorial Assistant for Style Within Reach
Having been completely won over after both hubbie and I had read and followed Lisa's detox plan from her previous book 'Renewal Anytime 10 day detox' I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. Her knowledge and attention to detail, as well as the delicious recipes, made our very first detox so much easier than expected.
This time in Go Clean, Sexy You she has completely designed the detox and recipes around each season, giving you a choice of 4 detox plans and recipes to follow. The 'in season' fruit and vegetables also make for an easy shop and are actually what you want to eat at that time of year. I love the way the detox works with the seasons for what your body needs at different times of the year too. If you have the paperback version, it is absolutely lush with stunning images and it is so much easier to use.
Lisa has a really friendly and simple approach that put's you totally at ease as she guides you through the book and she fills you with confidence even before you think of starting the detox. She has literally thought of everything you could possibly want to know in order to complete a successful detox. First she explains the facts behind a detox and why it's not all about the food you eat, she offers practical advice, for each seasonal detox she gives you the menu plans, shopping lists, recipes and it doesn't end there! When you complete your detox she has even included a 'Return to Life' section filled with more delicious recipes and advice to see you continue on the right path and have no excuse of going back to your old ways. Although you don't have to start healthy eating 100% of the time, as Lisa believes in the the 80/20 approach, which sounds quite do-able to me.
In the book the dirty dozen food list was a real eye opener for me and will always continue to try and buy organic foods and I enjoyed learning from the ph chart and information. I also liked the simple menu plan layout which I have been referring to constantly.
We are half way into the Spring detox, which is focusing on the liver, the recipes have been quick to make, easy to follow, and we have not been hungry once. I'm loving some of the recipes so far and will definitely be having them once my detox ends. It's actually nice to be eating food that is naturally flavoured instead of eating what I call 'cardboard food' as well as knowing your going to be helping your own body and seeing the results. I say this with confidence because we had great results from the previous detox both with weight and health issues. Another bonus of doing another detox is that we now already have most of the larder products and vitamins (these are optional).
Now's the time to start your body on a healthy journey with confidence.
As a nationally acclaimed Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Lisa has worked with thousands in her Renewal 10 Day Detox programs. Her work has been featured in Fitness Magazine, TinyBuddha, Elephant Journal, Kris Carr's Crazy Sexy Life , The Daily Meal, Fox News and Mind Body Green.

I WROTE THIS BOOK FOR YOU BECAUSE…
I know first-hand how it feels to be overwhelmed with all the diets, quick fix plans out there in the world.
I obsessed about my weight, and wrote endless to-do lists. I counted calories and carbs, took all kinds of vitamins, and worked out until I nearly keeled over. All the while, I dreamed of the day I’d be lean and fit and full of energy and confidence – the day I’d finally feel like I was “good enough”.
Nothing worked though. I’d start off well, and then a few weeks later, I’d go straight back to my old ways. Each time I dieted, it made me feel more and more exhausted, depressed and out of shape, as I beat myself up for not having the willpower to make it work.
And even though I was trying so hard to be healthier, the reality was that I was getting sicker. I had chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, rosacea, chronic cystitis, candida, thyroid issues and IBS… all before I was 30! I didn’t want to take meds, so I tried holistic therapies, got certified in holistic nutrition and my world changed.
I developed my own detox programs that I based on anti-inflammatory foods (fruits, veggies, and dark leafy greens), and started limiting inflammatory foods (dairy, gluten, caffeine, alcohol and processed sugar).
And for the first time in life, I started to see the results I’d dreamed of. I lost weight, felt lean and light, and had pep in my step. But best of all, I started feeling at ease around food. Instead of looking for quick fixes and diet programs, I started listening to my body, and letting it tell me what it needed.
For years, I used food as an enemy and after stepping back and truly listening to my body, I am now free of letting bad habits and twisted views of food run my life. I want you to experience the same freedom… and I’m here to guide you every step of the way with Go Clean, Sexy You.
Plus I want you to feel AMAZING!
Based on the results of the thousands of women (and super cool dudes) AND my own experience, here’s what you can expect:
- all-day energy that starts the moment you wake up and doesn’t quit
- the best sleep of your life: deep, blissful, uninterrupted rest the whole night long
- clothes that look – and feel – better on you than they have done in years
- a 4-10 pound weight loss (on average); could be more depending on your specific body and lifestyle
- a happier gut: bloating and bowel problems become a thing of the past
- no more cravings: the longing for sugar, caffeine and all the other nasties disappears
- a clearer mind: that frustrating brain fog melts away, and you can finally focus again
- increased sex drive (oh yeah!)
- a radiant, natural beauty emerges: you’re suddenly awash in compliments about your clear, dewy skin; bright sparkling eyes; and soft, shiny hair
- better immunity: getting rid of the toxins takes a load off your immune system, so you’re less likely to catch any of the bugs going around
- renewed confidence in yourself: you can’t even remember when you last felt this sexy, vibrant and alive
