Travel and Leisure reviews the Copperhood Spa on Route 28 in Shandaken, where spa-goers can opt for a juice detox program or an all-raw menu.

Recent guest Nina Combs, an NYC-based copy editor, raved about Copperhood's wonderful owner, Elizabeth Winograd, and the juicing plan. "I lost 10 pounds in a week!" she reports.

Personally, my Catskill Mountains weight-loss plan involves a lot of log-splitting. Maybe I should try some kale juice with that?
