Dr. Etti Ben-Zion Talks Sexi and Juicy
|Green never looked so good.|
So now that we understand one another, let's meet Dr. Etti Ben-Zion, an Israeli who is considered otherworldly by many regular folks. She feeds minds with enlightenment and bodies with juice...and smoothies..and other fun eats.
Dr. Etti is trained as a psychotherapist but labels herself "South Florida's leading detox doctor." Most of our major local media have written about her, trying to tap into just a fraction of her myriad skills. Men and women who come to her seeking weight loss only will be in for a big surprise--she digs deep to discover if you have misperceptions about your body image, why eating better or less freaks you out, and what you really substitute food for. (Yeah, you know you tend to scarf down an entire pizza and pint of Haagen-Dazs when you know you won't be getting any tail. Or is that just us?)
This interview will be a little different than the others, for many reasons, not the least of which is that we are going to drink the Dr. Etti Kool-Aid--literally--as we go. She's put us on a juice program (a.k.a. Sexi Juicing) for three days, followed by one day of smoothies, though her typical program is seven days long. If we come out of this looking and behaving anything like her, alert the casting directors! Dr. Etti is not only slender and full of energy, but her skin literally glows.
After we interview her and share her recipe for apple and carrot pulp muffins, we'll compare her detox program to the Blueprint Cleanse we endeavored in April.
New Times: So what's in this green drink I'm having?
Dr. Etti: Celery, cucumber, chard, lemon, and some sort of fruit.
