Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
So why not give this book 5 stars? Because the diet is on the extreme side and leaves me with more questions than answers. For example, where do I find nutritional yeast? First of all, Kimberly Snyder did a wonderful job explaining how our stomach breaks down each type of food and why she recommends eating foods in a particular order to make it easier for our bodies to digest and then absorb nutrients. Her theory is that if it's easier for our bodies to digest, absorb, and eliminate, our bodies have more time to heal itself (this is where the beauty part comes in) rather than just focusing on digestion 24/7. Second, it makes sense if we cut out animal protein, dairy, alcohol, and anything else that makes our bodies acidic, from our diets and replace them with produce so that we'll be healthier and maintain our weight. It's just hard to swallow that information and put it into practice on a daily basis. This book gives you so much knowledge and then you end up feeling bad that you aren't putting everything into practice.
As you can tell, Kimberly Snyder pushes vegetarian and vegan diets as the healthiest route but she does say you don't have to give up meat all together. She recommends no more than three dinners a week with meat, preferably not land animals. She also highly suggests eating raw since none of the nutrients are lost to cooking. Again, it makes sense but dang it I like to steam my veggies! The one thing Miss Snyder recommended that I had never heard about was eating fruits by themselves and nothing afterwards for at least 20 minutes since our bodies absorb them so fast (when eaten by themselves) and make are intestines very acidic.

I met Kimberly a few years ago when I was struggling with some major health issues, which I later learned were all related to the way I was eating. I was exhausted no matter how much sleep I got, I was perpetually bloated, I had horrifying cystic acne, black circles under my eyes and was just puffy. I also had put on about 10 pounds seemingly out of the blue and could not for the life of me get rid of the excess weight. I started e-mailing with Kim regularly and reading her blog religiously and began making some drastic changes to my diet. I started making her famous Green Juice daily, upping my intake of greens and fruit and drastically reducing my intake of processed food, dairy and animal products. Within a month, or less actually, I shed all the excess water weight I had been carrying around and my acne was GONE! The circles under my eyes dramatically lightened and my skin now has a radiance to it that no blush could ever create.

Every day I wake up feeling clear headed, energized and refreshed. Whereas I used to rely on 4 cups of coffee to get through the day, now only one cup in the morning is all I need. I snagged a copy of the book as soon as it came out. While I was on a healthy path before, the book really gave me that extra dose of invigoration and has put me back on an even healthier path. Once you start adopting a healthier approach to food, it becomes addicted, seriously! No amount of plastic surgery or expensive anti aging regimen or top makeup can ever give you the kind of beauty you will attain by following Kim's advice. I (obviously) HIGHLY recommend this book and can guarantee your life will change!

The best things to keep in mind about this book are
1.) It's not a crash diet or quick fix, it's a lifestyle choice aimed specifically at beauty results.
2.) Even the author tells you to mostly focus on taking what will work for you and that the changes are GRADUAL.
3.) If you care enough about anything you read in this book, or general nutrition for that matter, you should follow it up with your own research (or ask a doctor) to decide if it's really worth giving any credence to IE: real concerns about why you should avoid dairy, soy and gluten.

I think her book should have included more focus on the importance of a good probiotic over how awesome she thinks her cabbage salad is (raw unpasturized sauerkraut). What is the difference between that and other homemade enzyme/probiotic supplements? Why was the only mention of kefir about dairy? If you're eating her AMAZING salad recipe why do you need to take extra separate enzyme and probiotic supplements? She spent one page talking about probiotics that hardly included any facts to back up her claims. Three and a half if you count her opinions on enzymes and her salad recipe. While she cites 8 different books on these subjects in her endnotes I'm left feeling like they were just sources of vague like-minded postulations with nothing to solidify the importance of probiotics and enzymes. Either that or she deliberately chose to omit facts.

Personally, for probiotics I make water kefir (using non-dairy based water kefir grains) which is significantly cheaper and better than anything you'll buy in a store. Also in my own experience, I have saved money on groceries by being in the habit of shopping based on price per pound/ounces and picking non mega chain grocery stores or farmers markets.
