Martha's Vineyard Diet

The popular juice fast helping people lose 21 Pounds in 21 Days.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Martha's Vineyard Diet is a detoxification program written by author Dr. Roni DeLuz. DeLuz is a naturopath, RN and certified hypnotherapist. Her exclusive holistic retreat is located in the exclusive Martha's Vineyard.

DeLuz recommends and prescribes to her patients that each year they spend 21 days detoxifying their bodies, as she claims our world causes us to ingest too many toxins. This can be done in one 21 day period, or can be broken up into three separate weeks, or even weekends. It is because of this time frame that the Marthas Vineyard Diet is also known as the 21 pounds in 21 days diet. She goes into greater detail about the program in her hot new book, "21 Pounds in 21 Days: The Martha's Vineyard Detox Diet."

The program benefited from a boost of notoriety in June of 2007, when Robin Quivers of the "Howard Stern Show" used her strong presence in the media to celebrate her own success of losing an astonishing 20 pounds in just 10 days during an appearances on Larry King Live and The View.

The Martha's Vineyard Diet book made a strong debut on New York Times Bestseller list in July 2007- thanks in part to the Larry King Live The View appearances.

I went to her retreat. This lady is a straight scam and is clueless on detoxification. Of course people will lose weight consuming 400 cals a day, but her method is all wrong!

I am on day 3. Doing well but craving meat. Not really hungry which shows me I have a food addiction I wasn't aware of. My husband doing it with me too but he claims to be hungry all the time...not sure how. LOL
I've lost 5 pounds so far and feel very energetic, but I will say I hope the meat cravings will go away soon.

I did this diet at the center for 10 days. you loose water weight and gain it right back. The place is filthy and the staff know nothing. Total sham. a guest asked the clueless 215lb smoking 'house mother' who takes 10 min to get up the stairs to her room how someone could die from overhydtation and she said 'because water has toxins and they build up too quickly and you die'. That is 100% not true, she just made it up. Being overhydrated can kill you because it washes your electrolytes out and they do not have time to build back up. no services either. you will be lucky if you get a foot bath and a terrible colonic. This place is disgusting and the staff is completely unknowledgable. Roni is no gem either. She read a few books and created a money maker off of .

Robin Quivers was on the Marthas vineyard detox diet. how could you get that wrong? she doesnt shut up about it. Aside from that, I have just come off of it 4 days ago. 21 days, no cheats. lost 26 pounds. I believe at least 10 is partial salt/water weight but still. It has changed my life. You wont even think of the weight when you see all the other benefits. Im sharper than ive ever been with energy till the end of the day. I have even, healthy B movements like clockwork 3 times a day. This used to occur sometimes only once every 2-3 days or even longer. The only real problem is that you will soon realize what youve been doing to your body all these years. Just remember, if your on the diet, and you feel hungry, your doing it wrong.

Robin Quivers lost her weight on the Master Cleanse, not on Martha's Vineyard Detox.

I went on the Martha Detox diet and have lost 24 pounds in the last three weeks. I had a really hard time on the weekend when my husband was home and I wanted to be cooking for him but he would eat my soup with me at dinner. You really need lots of personal support but this diet is wonderful and followed diet wise the weight falls off quickly. I didnt do any of the colonics and such.... only ate the foods that are in the diet book. I really learned I wasnt so hungry all the time just anxious or wanting food for emotional reasons. This diet really helps you to deal with your emotions and why you over eat ..... I am going to continue one meal a day on the plan and the rest will be sensible eating. I have never lost weight this quickly.
