Book Review (from amazon.com):
"Protecting our beauty begins in our youth and continues throughout every age and stage of life," says Anne Louise Gittleman, author of Beyond Pritikin, Super Nutrition for Menopause, and several other books. The answer, however, isn't anything you can buy at the cosmetics counter.
"The right nutrition, internal cleansing, and hormonal harmony are the pathways to attaining natural beauty and vitality," says Gittleman. Following her program is not an easy task--you'll be carting supplements from the health food store and warily reading ingredient labels on every item that comes into your house or near your face. (But it works!) Her Living Beauty regimen is based on seven "beauty fundamentals":
a cleansed, detoxed system
energizing, immune-boosting veggies and fruits
revitalizing vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
Her major recommendation is to undergo a "seasonal cleanse" four times a year--not a fast, but a diet rich in lean protein, certain oils, and seasonal, organic fruits and vegetables; eliminating sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and white-flour products; and taking herbal teas, cranberry juice, and a "super green food supplement." Each season gets its own chapter with its own specific food choices.
Gittleman also gives detailed
beauty tips for different life stages, strategies for detoxifying your
emotions, and chemicals to avoid in cosmetics and household products.
