Product Description


"Kat James's approach represents not only a path for personal triumph but an approach to beauty and health whose time has come."

-- Suzanne Grimes, former publisher, Glamour

"Kat James is a master of self-transformation. She should know -- she was her first dramatic success story. This book is the advanced course on inside-out beauty."

-- Mary Christ Anderson, senior fitness editor, Self

"Kat James delivers results you've never obtained from any beauty or diet book before. The resource guide alone is worth its weight in gold."

-- Mary Rose Almasi, contributing health writer, Marie Claire

"The Truth About Beauty is a rare gem because Kat James's own transformation and dietary approach are uncannily in sync with the best science. I will recommend this book for years to come, as its truths will never change."

-- Ron Rosedale, MD, bestselling author of The Rosedale Diet

"If anyone can bring home the message to get informed and take better care of ourselves, it's Kat James."

-- Liz Smith, nationally syndicated columnist

"The Truth About Beauty is an exceptional resource for anyone seeking inside-out transformation, and perhaps the only 'beauty book' that gets it right from a dietary perspective. Kat's victory over her eating disorder and other diseases combined with her 'celebrity beauty expert' status give her a powerful dual perspective."

-- Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of, the world's most visited natural health website

"This book is a masterpiece."

-- Oz Garcia, multiple winner, New York magazine Nutritionist of the Year

About the Author

Nationally renowned beauty and holistic health expert Kat James transformed her body and skin beyond recognition after a twelve-year eating disorder and the resulting liver disease nearly took her life. Through her book, national health columns, public television special, lectures, and acclaimed Total Transformation® programs, she has helped millions to mastermind their own healing transformations using science and strategy rather than suffering or extreme measures. James came to know the inside of the beauty industry from her many years as one of the most quoted experts and cosmetics-company spokespersons of the 1990s, and now offers a rare new perspective on enlightened, holistic self-transformation. Her advice has appeared in nearly every major women's and national health magazine, including Vogue and O, The Oprah Magazine, as well as on the Today show. She is founder of and creator of Total Transformation® programs. Her clients have included celebrities such as Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker and world-class athletes.

Format: Paperback
I absolutely LOVE this book! So many beauty books recommend ways to cover up your imperfections - or they suggest complicated cleansing routines with a myriad of products. Not this book. Kat James tells her story of her own personal transformation - done not with surgery or body breaking workouts - but with whole foods, vitamins and a positive attitude. Her theories are sound and it is obvious she has done her homework. The list of resources in the back is worth buying the book for! This book is so jam packed with good info, I find myself rereading parts - and keeping it handy when I visit the health food store for my supplements. I have also taken her suggestion and ordered a shower filter. I can't wait to see the results!
Thanks Kat James for a fabulous book and for the inspiration! I would also like to recommend Absolute Beauty by Pratima Raichur in addition to this book. Both of these women are on to something!
Edited to add: I finally bought the shower filter - and I am truly amazed. My hair, which was once coarse and tangly - is now smooth and I am not having to use the extra conditioner. My scalp is no longer flaky, dry and itchy. But the difference in my skin is wonderful - I have had red, blotchy, itchy skin for the longest time. I even thought I had rosacea. I tried every single skin care line imaginable to cure this - but to no avail. I was constantly hiding my skin behind foundation. After a week of the shower filter, my skin is a NORMAL color. No more redness, no irritation, no soreness, no dryness. I am so happy that I followed this suggestion - it has made the biggest difference! Only two weeks into her suggestions on supplements and the shower filter and I look A LOT better! Thanks again!

Format: Paperback
Next to the Holy Bible, this is the most life changing book I have read. The information in this book is enlighting and depressing at the same time. I am so disheartned to learn of all the chemicals and toxins allowed/ignored by our government and regulators such as the FDA. I now have a better idea of why 1 in 3 people get cancer among other health problems. This book touched on a lot of vaulable informtion that I would have prefered more details but at least now I am aware. This book has started my journey to research more information on how to safegurad myself and my family in this toxic world and flat out lies in advertisments. I have since bought another copy to lend out to family and friends and have advised many more to buy it.

Format: Paperback
Where was this book when I needed it years ago, as a younger woman who spent way too much on cosmetics that did more harm than good, physically and emotionally? Why do women waste so much money on so-called dreams that don't come true?
THE TRUTH ABOUT BEAUTY is well-written, informative, and totally sane -- the author strikes an admirable balance between new-age enthusiasm for organic products and her (well-researched) distrust of the pharmaceutical industry.
Her book encouraged me and inspired me to go through my food cabinet as well as my medicine chest and cosmetics cases. I have since tossed out the tainted products I'd been hoarding and began to replace them with many of the healthy foods and cosmetics Kat suggests. (Her resource section is amazingly helpful if you can't find the items at your local Whole Foods Market or health food store, they are available online and she gives you the Web addresses!) I have been keeping track of the changes in my looks and my moods -- and they are indeed remarkable. Plus, I have a lot more space in my bathroom.
Best of all, her work is a wonderful companion to that of Dr. Christiane Northrup, whose work I also admire, as well as that of Dr. Weil and others in the complimentary medicine fields.
Again, Thank you, thank you. This IS the truth about beauty. I would love to see more books like this !!

Format: Paperback
I have never read a book that is so full of on-the-money advice about health and beauty. I have followed many of her suggestions from kitchen and bathroom cabinet makeovers to a shower filter and new supplements and beauty products. The difference in my skin and hair is unbelievable. This is the "other side of the story" that you never hear from the cosmetics industry. Her Resources section is unbelievable.

For those people missing something and searching, Kat James may be the facilitator that can bring it all together. If you are a dieter and quick weight loss is all you are looking for, this book is not for you. If you are into outside fixes while leaving the inside a disaster, this book will not work for you. However, if you are looking to break the yo-yo cycle she offers a lifetime of positive changes for those people interested in doing the work. That means simply, no more band aids for symptoms of health and wellness. She encourages and inspires a mentally ready individual through natural means. If you are prepared to absorb even just one piece of Kat James and her life experiences the book is worth its price in gold. Believing this because the first action usually leads to more, I know because I was the overweight sugar addicted woman who bought her book 6 months ago. One change leads to another. I have lost 12lbs. the healthy way, I enjoy life, I look better, feel more energetic, and exercise has become a necessity instead of a chore. For me, it's like the best kept little secret to life was shared and I can't believe I've been missing out for so long.
