January 19, 2011|55Comments|


Crazy Sexy Diet Posse!

I’m bowled over by the massively supportive and enthusiastic response to Crazy Sexy Diet! It’s now the #1 best selling book on Amazon. Holy green juice! It filled me with joy to see hundreds of health crusaders ready to take 2011 by storm at my New York City book tour events this week. And did you happen to tune-in when I rocked the plants on Good Morning America? If you haven’t picked up Crazy Sexy Diet yet, what are you waiting for, sassy? Check out some of my top tips for supercharged living below, plus my favorite green juice and smoothie recipes. This handy list is a great reminder when you fall off the wellness wagon.

Peace & sparkly unicorns,
Kris Carr

Top 15 Crazy Sexy Diet Tips

1. Get back to nature and back to the garden – preferably the organic garden – when affordable – when not, try to choose fruits and veggies that are less sprayed. You can find a Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides at foodnews.org. There are more than 80,000 chemicals in our world today. Eating them and putting them on our bodies is a dangerous proposition.

2. Create an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle. Learn about pH, the acid/alkaline balance, and say goodbye to the SAD, acidic diet in favor of alkaline raw organic veggies, sprouts, green drinks, green smoothies, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, love and oxygen.

3. Make juice not war. Green smoothies are great too. My favorite juicers are the Breville Ikon, Omega 8003 and Hurom Slow Juicer. The best blender is the Vitamix. Instead of your morning cup of Joe, (or nightly cup of booze) try filling your day with fresh vegetable juice.

4. Drink lots of clean, purified water.

5. Decrease the amount of animal products you consume (especially dairy products) and move toward more of a plant-based diet.

6. Refined sugars and processed starches are the devil – dump them. If it’s made in a lab it takes a lab to digest. If it has a shelf life longer than you, don’t eat it. Choose low glycemic foods as much as possible.

7. Shake your booty. Your lymph system, which carries away waste, needs you! Unlike your heart, it doesn’t have a pump.  Aerobics is the pump. Brisk walking is the pump. Yoga is the pump.

8. Give your colon a regular spring-cleaning. That’s right, flood your body with alkalinity and flush out toxins. As the good stuff goes in the bad stuff should come out – on a regular basis.

9. Use natural skincare products. Your skin is your largest organ and what you put on it you literally drink in. Everything you consume either gets assimilated or eliminated. Chemical creams and perfumes tax your body big time.

10. Stress also creates acidity, so turn down the volume on chaos and turn up the joy factor. Find and regularly commit to activities that help you bring it down a notch. Some ideas: meditation, gratitude journaling, guided relaxation or visualization CD’s, nature.

11. Snooze. Snooze. Snooze. Optimal hours: 11-7am.

12. Chew. Your stomach does not have teeth.

13. And stop eating late so that when you snooze, your body can focus on repair instead of digestion.

14. Set boundaries so that you have the physical and emotional time to take care of yourself – it’s not selfish, it’s self-preserving.

15. Make time for fun, for love, for laughter!

Make Juice Not War Green Drink
It’s our motto and our morning beverage. Here’s what we serve in the Carr/Fassett home daily. This recipe makes almost 32 oz.

-2 large cucumbers (peeled if not organic)
-Big fist full of kale or romaine
-Big fist full of sweet pea sprouts (if easy to find)
-4-5 stalks celery
-1-2 big broccoli stems
-1-2 pears or green apples (optional)
*Other optional greens we love: spinach

Kris Carr’s Green Smoothie
Makes enough for 2 people. You can adjust the recipe accordingly. My taste buds are different than yours so don’t be afraid to play!

-1 Avocado
-1-2 pieces of low glycemic fruit: we love green apple, pear, berries & cantaloupe
-1 Cucumber
-A bit of kale or romaine or spinach
-Coconut water (or purified water)
-Stevia to taste
*You can also add a sprinkle of cinnamon and some cacao.
*You can also use coconut meat or almond butter or nut milk in place of avocado.

Peace & abundant health,

Kris Carr

  3. Wonderful tips!! I had my first green juice a few days ago! I didn’t make it myself (got it from a juice bar) but it was pretty tasty!! My friend thought I was crazy b/c it was beet-apple-carrot and looked pretty strange, but it tasted good :D

  4. I went vegan with Alicia Silverstone’s book but went vegetarian for the holidays and my body is out of wack! I love your book and my boyfriend and I are really excited to start your cleanse this weekend. We bought our first juicer yesterday and I think green juice and I could very easily be life long best friends. Plus, all the info about ph is phabulous and I have a whole new understanding of my body and what constitues a healthy vegan. Thank you so much for writting possibly the best healthy lifestyle book! :)

  5. I just finished Crazy Sexy Cancer tips and loved it. I personally do not have cancer, but many family members did. I’m so excited to get this new book, I ordered it last night on Amazon, but sadly, it said it may not ship for 1-3 weeks-BOO! But obviously since its No. 1-they have lots of orders to fill! I will wait patiently…

  6. Woo hoo! This is exciting news! It is so important that people hear your story and truly start taking care of themselves. Kris, on a personal level, you have opened my eyes to so much more than a healthy diet. Your energy and dedication to living a whole and vibrant life has inspired me to no end. Thank you!! Congratulations on your success!

  7. Hi Kris, I purchased your CSD book yesterday and started reading a couple pages last night. Let’s just say I had to force myself to put the book down! I LOVE your book!!!

  8. So many amazing tips here, Kris. Your book looks amazing and it’s SO wonderful that it’s been such a huge success already!!! “If it’s made in a lab it takes a lab to digest. If it has a shelf life longer than you, don’t eat it. ” LOL, so funny. Love your writing style.

  9. Fabulous article and tips!

  10. Congratulations!!! I should be receiving my book today and am super excited! You were great on Good Morning America! I am so happy that your book is receiving such a great response!

    BTW, thanks for featuring my White Bean and Collard Stew recipe yesterday!

  11. I just bought the new book lastnight (at my local independent bookstore). I’ve read about half of it, so far it’s amazing. Thank you!

  15. Just ordered three copies of your book to be shipped to Oz – one for me, one each for like minded loved ones…so excited to take my green smoothie path up a notch and embrace the year with an energised attitude. I slumped into a love affair with sugar over the Christmas break and my body is telling me exactly how it feels about that!!! Time for a fresh, clean, green direction. Thankyou for being so vibrant that your energy reaches a tiny town in South Australia…You are amazing xo

  16. I am so very proud of you Kris! Keep up the good work to save us all. Big hugs to you. xoxo Lisa

  17. I’m almost done reading your awesome new book…and am on day three of the 21 day cleanse–the cleanse is going great as I already am a vegan and purchased a Vitamix last summer…..I love my smoothies. I just need to take the next step and purchase a juicer. Giving up Starbucks and an occasional glass of wine was easy !

    On Monday I purchased a ph strip kit for the first time and am thrilled to see that my body is “alkaline” and not acidic.

    I’m trying to talk my sister into attending your visit to Portland Oregon with me. She’s a fan of Suzanne Somers….so am having to do a little coaxing to get her to go with me on the 29th. See ya there!!!

  18. it’s out of stock right now on Amazon….. publisher must keep turning out more please! keep it going!!!!!

  19. You are my superhero! I bought ANOTHER copy of your book as a giveaway on my blog http://www.veggiegrettie.com
    The contest is still open…

  20. oH! Wonderful tips. I should inform about this site to my girl friend. Thanks

  21. This is crazy but to tell you honestly I can’t control myself in eating special when I will work online.

  22. I so enjoyed listening to and taking in your positive energy this past Monday evening at barnes and nobles in NYC. I am on page 48 of CSD and gobbling up all the useful info. I went macro/vegan 9 months ago after reading The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. I am really enjoying it but would love to move gently in the direction of more raw veggies and green drinks. Your are an invaluable member to the universe!!! Thanks so much and much love!

  23. Ordered 2 and on their way!! Thank you my Crazy Sexy Wellness Fearless Leader!! From one survivor to another!!! Love Love Love!!

  24. Thank you so much for #3!! I showed my mom your Good Morning America interview yesterday and she said that I should find the best juicer for us to purchase… and here you are with an answer right when I need it!

  25. Love you Kris ~ you rock my cancer world ~ which ain’t an easy task LOL

  26. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE FOOD COMBINING CONCEPT?

  27. I went vegan to support my friends living with cancer. On December 25, 2010 after meeting Chef AJ in Los Angeles and hearing her survival story, we converted. She has lots of YouTube videos. Dang, sugar was hard to give up… and the benefits are so many including no more hot flashes!

    Kris–Your “Crazy,Sexy Cancer” film is mandatory for my doctoral students. You have a HUGE following in Los Angeles! Thanks for the recipes. Can’t wait to get my hands on your book!

    Thanks to Danielle LaPorte….my meat/junk-food eating husband is even trying kale!

  28. Hey Kris I found your vlog while looking for help for a friend who just underwent a mastectomy for stage 2 cancer. Your words are so inspiring and much needed. I bought a copy of your crazy diet for my friend and one for me(Jan.22/11) Go # 1 on nysellers list!!! Thank you for all your Love at a time when we all need MORE LOVE!!!!! xoxoxo

  29. I LOVE this book. But I got it on my Kindle for the Mac and all the charts are so small you can’t read them. Kris, please can you get your publisher to reformat the charts as those of us with a kindle are missing 10% or so of the book. Many thanks and be well.

  30. ….and DARN IT for the cancellation of the Tulsa event!

  31. I just bought your Crazy Sexy book for my 23 year old daughter who, after a 2 year search for a diagnosis, she was told she has an autoimmune disease called Takayasu Arteritis. It affects her large arteries and causes a lot of inflammation in her body. We are going to try eating more plant based! She came over and made the vege drink this a.m. before work. I hope she stays on-board! I am not sure she realizes how much it could help her! I will let you know how it goes and if it helps her. It will be a good testament to other young 20-somethings!

  32. Thank you Kris, for making it sooooo simple :)

  33. I got the very last CSD book on the shelves of my local Borders! I was so disappointed that I could not find it and searched out a Borders employee–it was stuck in with a bunch of diet books. I was so happy! She said that they went through the books like crazy!! It is so great that a vegan book is a BEST SELLER! Congratulations Kris! You are an inspiration, what you are doing for people is fantastic! Thank you!

  34. Beauty-full! Thank you for the inspiration – funny how we need to hit crisis/illness to turn around – but when we DO, there it is!
    bless you
    Ms Noble

  35. Will you be speaking locally anytime soon? Would love to see you in Woodstock!

  36. I like this compilation really. Only thing I miss here is that losing weight takes time. Too fast loss of weight may have some counter productive effects on your body chemistry and metabolism. Gaining weight does not happen overnight so getting rid of the extra kilos should take time. Even if there is a faster lane – think about it: fast result may not last as the getting fat period took weeks or even months to accomplish, right?

  37. This book and site are like a shot of everything good and healing!
    Thank you Kris

  42. Saw you in Toronto last week and just love you, I ordered your book and am ready to take my healthy life style up another notch!

    Am pricing a juicer now, the kale in the garden here in Michigan is ready for juicing.

  43. I am inspired by your example, Kris.
    I don’t have cancer, am blessed with pretty good genes and longevity, and I want to honor this “gift” from the universe by living and eating the best way possible.
    This morning, I named my negative voice “Cruella” from “101 Dalmations.” So far, I have told her off 3 times. felt GOOD!

    On a practical note, I am researching juicers. I have read about the 4 you recommend (Breville Ikon, Omega 8003, Vitamix and Hurom Slow Juicer), but I am – honestly – still confused. I need one good juicer, not four.

    What is your top recommendation for a juicer? (PS – I am a public school teacher, not an independently wealthy heiress).

    Thanks so much, Kris, for your shining example.
