The Martha’s Vineyard Detox Diet was developed by Dr. Roni DeLuz, a naturopath and hypnotherapistm and is named after Martha’s Vineyard, the place where Dr. DeLuz’s holistic retreat is located.

The diet regimen itself lasts for 21 days and can be done within a single period or broken up into three separate week long sessions. However, in other cases, the treatment can also be done during weekends, provided they reach the 21 day mark.

So what’s the deal with this detox diet? What are the pros and cons?

The good side of this diet is that, like most detox diets, it focuses on natural detoxification methods and easily digestible foods like soups and juices. The down side, according to those who have tried it, is that it requires the person to take juice almost every two hours to compensate for nutrition. Moreover, some cases of flu symptoms may occur as a result of the diet.

Most of the juices and soups in the Martha’s Vineyard Detox Diet are made from fruits and vegetables, which are made from spinach, cucumber, ginger, collard greens, berries, etc… Take note however, that you will require a large supply of these items, as the drinking of soups and juices will be required several times a day.

Aside from the food, the diet also allows some light exercise to be performed. So jumping rope or basic yoga postures can also be practiced during the 21 day period. People also claim that they have lost several pounds within a very short period of time. Some even claimed to have lost pounds in only 3 weeks. At any rate, Dr. DeLuz has taken this success and used it as the inspiration for the title of his book, "21 Pounds in 21 Days: The Martha's Vineyard Detox Diet."

There’s really nothing new about the Marthat’s Vineyard Detox Diet. Juices, soups or any liquefied food has always been an important aspect of many detox diets. The difference is that Martha’s Vineyard attempts to give you realistic results within a fixed timeframe. Also unlike other detox diets and health regimens, Martha’s Vineyard focuses in providing you with plenty of vitamins and nutrients while feeling satisfied and full through out the entire process. So if you are planning to cleanse your body for a fresh start, the Martha’s Vineyard Diet is a good choice.
