Cancer survivor Kris Carr turned the fear and angst triggered by her initial diagnosis into a book and documentary called CRAZY SEXY CANCER, which led in quick succession to two more books, a web site, an online community, and a coaching career. In all her endeavors, Carr advocates a healthy, holistic lifestyle and patient empowerment. This 2011 entry in the CRAZY SEXY series focuses on the dietary aspects of health. Not a typical "diet" book per se (this isn't necessarily for people who want to get skinny fast), it is a well-rounded lifestyle plan that involves healthful eating--Carr recommends a vegetarian diet, but also discusses the merits of being omnivorous--supplements, stress reduction, and overall mind/body detoxification. Carr consults many experts, and writes in a reader-friendly, irreverent style suited to a young-ish (or young-thinking) readership.
