Are You Ready To Be Transformed?

Fully updated, featured re-release! Includes new information, personal stories, and delicious recipes.

Beauty is not about hard work after all — if you have the right tools. This revolutionary guide peels away the layers of conventional body and beauty wisdom to uncover the crucial missing information needed for real transformation. nationally renowned beauty and holistic health expert kat James reveals the life-altering secrets she discovered after more than a decade of self-destructive living, and an eating disorder that almost took her life.

Based on breaking science and her own remarkable metamorphosis, The Truth About Beauty represents the most comprehensively researched, inside-out beauty guide to date. In this book you will discover the real power tools for dramatic, healthy self-transformation without drugs, surgery, harsh regimens, or deprivation.

In this fully updated and expanded fifth-anniversary edition, you will find more than one hundred new pages of information and hard-to-find resources, including book-wide chart updates, incredible new success stories, and — by demand — Kat's Six-Day Jumpstart menu and Recipe Collection from her acclaimed Total Transformation® programs!

Transform yourself by upgrading selfsabotaging choices into "pro-beauty" choices.

Shut off weight gain, inflammation, and food addiction by correcting your chemistry (not by counting calories).

Get back your "virgin skin" by getting off the merry-go-round of problemcausing product regimens and taking a smarter, inside-out approach to chronic issues.

Discover the most exciting, proven natural antiaging nutrients and strategies.

Access a powerful arsenal of standout foods, supplements, and cosmeceuticals that Marie Claire calls "worth their weight in gold."

"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."

    Wish I'd found this book sooner

    I wish I had found this book when I was a miserable, carb-addicted size 18. Kat James gives a controversial, yet extremely effective, nutritive apporoach to beauty and weightloss. A must read for the majority of americans. You know who you are.
