The book: “21 Pounds in 21 Days: The Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox” by Roni DeLuz, R.N., N.D. with James Hester (release date: May 8)
The diet: Dr. Roni DeLuz moved to Martha’s Vineyard more than a decade ago . She and Hester claim their liquid-based diet of distilled water, fresh juices and green-vegetable soups will cleanse digestive systems, improve skin, and help with weight loss.
Steady on: DeLuz runs the Martha’s Vineyard Holistic Retreat at a bed and breakfast on the island, so forget those intense menu inspections and leave the details to the master. Stay in one of the six suites, give up solid foods in favor of berry “cocktails” and other organic blends and immerse yourself in cleansing therapies like hypnosis and colonics.
Go wild: Drinking alcohol and smoking are forbidden during detox, but who says you can’t just have one teeny little sip of a drink at the Offshore Ale microbrewery? Staff will serve up samples on request.
