Whether she planned to or not, “Healthy Chef” Alexandra Jamieson helped bring veganism into the mainstream with her successful vegan “Detox Diet”, prescribed for Morgan Spurlock in the hit documentary, Super Size Me. Alex helped her fiancé lose the 25 pounds he gained during his month-long binge at McDonald’s, cleansing his system and rejuvenating his spirit (not to mention his libido) in the process. Soon, everyone wanted to know what the diet was. Alex has answered and will speak with us about her new “antidiet” book, The Great American Detox Diet, which reveals the damaging aspects of the Standard American Diet and how to jumpstart your own detox on the road to healthy living. Alex will also share the horror of witnessing Morgan’s experiment and explain just how their culinarily discordant relationship works.
