"If someone doesn't comment within two weeks on how great you're looking - then you're cheating." Dr Joshi Dr Joshi's craving-free detox attracts stars and supermodels from all over the world to his Wimpole Street clinic. Now he reveals the secret of his metabolic detox dieting plan and explains how it has transformed the lives and health of celebrities such as Kate Moss, Cate Blanchett and Gwyneth Paltrow. Based on avoiding foods that are refined, acidic and toxic such as wheat, potatoes, red meat, alcohol and dairy produce, the idea is to alter the PH balance of the body from acid to alkaline - flushing toxins from the system, restoring energy levels and losing weight. It is also about 'cutting down' on certain foods rather than 'cutting out', and changing your palate so you will actually dislike the taste of those foods which are bad for you, so preventing cravings. By following Joshi's intensive three-week programme and three-week maintenance course any one of us can shake off the strain of a high-pressure life and get the body and energy-levels we've always dreamed of.
Joshi was born in Africa to Indian parents and is qualified in orthodox medicine, osteopathy and Ayurvedic treatments. He treated Princess Diana for four years and developed the detox diet for her in the wake of her split from Prince Charles. In his early forties but with the vitality and appearance of a much younger man, he now runs a private clinic in London.
