Review

"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 mercola.com, the world's most visited natural health website

"This book is a masterpiece."

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Will change your life May 20 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well researched and transforming Nov. 29 2003
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Thank you! May 24 2004
By A Customer
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 !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kat James knows her stuff! April 12 2004
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative! Sept. 17 2011
By nanou28
Format:Paperback
I really was impressed with this book. Not only did it give me good insight on nutrition but it actually changed my outlook on much of the hype about food that corporations etc would like us to beleive. I was somewhat expecting this book to be more about your typical beauty regime and Kat James does give excellent suggestions but insists on a dietary approach that is in sinc with the best science. I have started to implement her advice and am already feeling better! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because there was alot of focus on loosing weight and that has never been an issue of mine, however, overall I must say that this book was definately an eye opener for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth About Beauty Feb. 22 2011
Format:Paperback
I was delighted at how quickly I received this book and it was in excellent condition. Amazon is professional, efficient and has been consistently faster than they estimate in delivery. Very pleased.
The book itself is superb. If we reframe the term beauty as health we make better choices. You will learn about making your routines chlorine-free, upgrading your supplements, and eating more full fat whole foods to satiate you. Remember though, and this is just from me, you can learn from lots of books, but within you is the real wisdom, so if you can, stop, rest and be. Being you is why you are here, and being you is beautiful, female or male.
