The Snowden Detox Diet

Get all the details about Vanessa's alkaline diet from Seeking Sister Wife!

The Snowden family from Seeking Sister Wife have been looking to add a second wife to their family for a long time, and they think they may have found the perfect match in Vanessa!

But before they can take their relationship to the next level, the Snowdens ask Vanessa to go on a 21-day detox alkaline diet before becoming intimate with Ashley’s husband Dimitri.

Or, as Vanessa jokes on Seeking Sister Wife, "I've done a lot of crazy diets in my life...I've never done one just to get some D!"

But by the end of the diet, Vanessa admitted she felt great and was looking great too! Check out her before and after photo below.
