    Eat Well To Look Fantastic!

    by Kelly Jad¿on/Founder<BR/>www.BasilAndSpice.com<BR/>Author & Book Views On A Healthy Life!<BR/><BR/>A FirstLook Feature<BR/><BR/>Book Review: The Beauty Diet: Looking Great Has Never Been So Delicious (McGraw-Hill, 2008) by Lisa Drayer, M.A., R.D.<BR/><BR/>Lisa Drayer considers herself to be a beauty nutritionist and is also the author of Strong, Slim, and 30! A consultant to Maybelline/Garnier, a spokesperson for Crest Pro-Health and the Got Milk? Campaign, she has received the American Dietetic Association¿s Media Excellence Award.<BR/><BR/>The Beauty Diet defines our food by explaining how specific foods directly target the health of our skin, hair, nails, teeth, eyes, and general body. Beauty foods are:<BR/><BR/> * Nutrient dense¿includes high quality proteins, healthy carbs, beneficial fats<BR/> * Micronutrient rich¿containing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals<BR/> * Fresh¿preferably locally grown<BR/> * Organic¿preservative-free, and grown and prepared without pesticides, antibiotics, artificial colors, additives<BR/> * Unrefined¿unprocessed and unbleached<BR/> * Fiber full¿slowing digestion, improving satiety and slimness<BR/><BR/>Drayer¿s Top 10 Beauty Foods:<BR/><BR/> 1. Wild Salmon¿contains Omega-3 Fatty Acids; promotes skin flexibility, reduces moisture loss, improves acne; protects eyes, skin; eat as a whole food; vital nutrients listed<BR/> 2. Yogurt (low-fat)¿an important source of calcium, protein, and probiotics, it promotes strong bones, beautiful nails, good posture, and a nice smile. 1 cup of plain low-fat yogurt equals 450 milligrams of calcium, 2 grams of zinc, 12 grams of protein, B vitamins, potassium, and phosphorus.<BR/> 3. Oysters¿plays a major role in skin repair; contains zinc, selenium, protein, vitamins and other antioxidants helping the nails, scalp, and hair<BR/> 4. Blueberries¿ranked #1 in antioxidant activity by the U. S. Department of Agriculture; an anti-inflammatory, the fruit contains anthocyanins, vitamins, minerals, lutein, zeaxanthin, ellagic acid, fiber; protects the brain and urinary tract; 80 calories a cup<BR/> 5. Kiwifruit¿high in vitamin C; neutralizes free radicals; eat 2-3 a day to reduce clot formation<BR/> 6. Sweet Potatoes¿rich in beta-carotene, calcium and fiber; protects cells, helps prevent wrinkles<BR/> 7. Spinach¿rich in lutein (important to eyes), beta carotene, magnesium alpha-lipoic acid (aids in preventing aging of the brain) and zeaxanthin<BR/> 8. Tomatoes¿contains lycopene which is an antiaging antioxidant. Could help protect against sunburn.<BR/> 9. Walnuts¿only type of nut which has a significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids. Assist in keeping skin smooth and may help relieve symptoms of eczema and psoriasis, asthma and rheumatoid arthritis.<BR/> 10. Dark Chocolate¿hmmm¿sounds great! Protects the skin against damage from the sun. Drayer writes that ¿Topical chocolate skin products are currently available¿¿ Avoid Dutch processed products, look for those high in flavanols, and only eat a small portion.<BR/><BR/><BR/>Besides listing these top ten foods, Lisa Drayer recommends that we eat a large variety of fresh foods daily which will fight free radicals and improve health.<BR/><BR/>An entire chapter is devoted to four weeks of meal planning, incorporating the Top Ten Beauty Foods, for middle and high school girls. I myself gave a copy to my 8th grader who suffers with teenage acne.

    Everything you need to know is in the book's summary. Each chapter is a repitition of the information given in the first one. Maybe the meal plans are good, but I'm not planning on using them.
