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 www.informedbeauty.com and creator of Total Transformation® programs. Her clients have included celebrities such as Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker and world-class athletes.

I absolutely love this book. I've read it cover to cover several times and come back to it for quick references on a regular basis. I used to be the kind of girl who read 'Cosmo' religiously, spent loads of money on trendy products I was never happy with, and rarely thought about the long-term effects of my lifestyle habits. Then I read this book. Now I happily blow past the beauty mags, buy only the products I know will benefit me, and enjoy feeling healthy and informed.What I loved most about this book? Kat's focus on achieving beauty through being healthy -- in the most natural way achievable. And effective! Of all the self-help type books I've ever picked up, this is among the most inspirational. Reading this, I believe I can drop those trouble pounds, improve my complexion, bring out my natural beauty, and generally just be healthier -- easily and happily so.
