9780062516275: Living Beauty Detox Program: The Revolutionary Diet for Each and Every Season of a Woman's Life

"A youthful glow, skin that's soft to the touch, luster-rich hair, strong, healthy nails, a serene spirit, and a nourished soul...the answer for true beauty is here for each of us no matter what our age. It's only a matter of understanding how to create it."

Beauty is more than skin deep--our appearance reflects our inner health. The beauty problems we see in the mirror can result from hormonal imbalances, toxins, stress, and dietary deficiencies that cosmetics can't mask. Respected nutritionist and bestselling author Ann Louise Gittleman has developed seasonal diets to cleanse the body's systems and allow us to look our very best, accompanied by a unique test to help you determine which tips will enhance your "seasonal beauty type" year-round. Her straightforward advice can be used for three days to two weeks to clear out your own toxic blocks to beauty. In addition, Gittleman provides unique information and specific regimens for each hormonal stage of a woman's life, from adolescence through adulthood

The Living Beauty Detox Program is sound science based on Ann Louise Gittleman's years of study and reserach at Columbia University, the Pritikin Longevity Center, and her own practice. She presents the beauty fundumentals every woman needs to maintain a healthier, more radiant appearance. Understanding the essentials of detoxification and learning to read the body's beauty and health signals are the first steps. A balanced, fruit- and vegetable-rich diet, including powerhouse proteins and healing oils and supplemented with revitalizing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and purified water, improves the functioning of the body's internal systems, and helps rid it of harmful pollutants. Seasonal maintenance protects and regenerates the body inside and out, while clearing away mental, emotional, and spiritual blocks in order to reduce stress and help restore hormonal balance and outward radiance.

From teens seeking to build a strong foundation for beauty to women in their 30s and 40s who wish to maintain a youthful appearance and women 50 and beyond who want to rejuvenate their looks, The Living Beauty Detox Program offers outward beauty and inner harmony for a lifetime.

Review:

"Protecting our beauty begins in our youth and continues throughout every age and stage of life," says Anne Louise Gittleman, author of Beyond Pritikin, Super Nutrition for Menopause, and several other books. The answer, however, isn't anything you can buy at the cosmetics counter. "The right nutrition, internal cleansing, and hormonal harmony are the pathways to attaining natural beauty and vitality," says Gittleman. Following her program is not an easy task--you'll be carting supplements from the health food store and warily reading ingredient labels on every item that comes into your house or near your face. Her Living Beauty regimen is based on seven "beauty fundamentals":

  • a cleansed, detoxed system
  • purified water
  • powerful proteins
  • beautifying oils
  • energizing, immune-boosting veggies and fruits
  • revitalizing vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
  • balanced hormones
Her major recommendation is to undergo a "seasonal cleanse" four times a year--not a fast, but a diet rich in lean protein, certain oils, and seasonal, organic fruits and vegetables; eliminating sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and white-flour products; and taking herbal teas, cranberry juice, and a "super green food supplement." Each season gets its own chapter with its own specific food choices. Gittleman also gives detailed beauty tips for different life stages, strategies for detoxifying your emotions, and chemicals to avoid in cosmetics and household products. --Joan Price
