Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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.
Kat has uncovered a lot of myths and misconceptions and offers so many alternatives. It's a wonderful resource for the environmentally and health conscious.
No More DIETS--- You will learn how to love YOURSELF and be healthy when you read this book. It truly changed my life.
What a wonderful book! Finally someone has written a book that really says it all. This is an inspiration to really motivate you into a life style change. Kudos to Kat James for writing such an inspiring book.
