DetoxDetoxDetoxDetox ReviewReviewReviewReviewBook Review: The Beauty Detox SolutionOK, so the items I just purchased might sound a little peculiar: nutritionalyeast flakes, hemp protein, Himalayan salt and digestive enzymes.But if you’re going “eat your way to radiant skin,renewed energy and the body you’ve alwayswanted” as The Beauty Detox Solutionpromises then, according to author KimberlySnyder, C.N., these are some of the things youought to have on your shopping list.From what I’ve seen, the typical American diet is high in grains, corn,processed foods, refined sugar, saturated fat and sodium. Eating like thisover the long term can lead to all sorts of problems, including obesity,diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.Also, it can mess up your skin, hair and nails and cause premature aging.Snyder promises to show you how to fix these issues with The BeautyDetox Solution, a nutrition book that puts a fresh perspective on the oldexpression, “You are what you eat.”Snyder says that eating a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables willrestore health and beauty by improving the body’s ability to efficientlydigest vital nutrients. This, she says, will help cleanse years of toxicbuildup – which she calls “sludge” – out of your system.
She explains which foods to eat, when to eat them, how to eat them andhow to pair them for the most benefits.Some of the suggestions are simple, like eat fruit first in a meal. Othersare more extreme, like eat an avocado if you’re still hungry after havinga green smoothie for breakfast. Even the smoothie may soundover-the-top – the recipe calls for a whole head of lettuce, three-quartersof a bunch of spinach, four stalks of celery, an apple, a pear, a banana,juice of half of a lemon, and if you’re feeling spunky you can add a thirdof a bunch of cilantro or parsley.Some of her philosophies sounded outrageous, even for me. I’ve eatenclean for years, and a lot of people consider my approach extreme in itsown right. But reading that a turkey sandwich was an “improper BeautyFood Pairing” was alarming.My immediate thought was, “No way.” Imagine my disappointment – thatwas a staple of my everyday diet.Still, I was intrigued. The information in this book promises to advancemy understanding of nutrition and its affect on the body.Reading about the advantages of low glycemic index foods and principlesbehind sports nutrition have helped shape my approach, and I’m eagerto see whether Snyder’s nutritional philosophy can add to it.My key tenets – which include avoiding simple carbs, processed mealsand fried foods -- have worked great for me and my clients. But there’salways more to learn, and I’m always looking to expand my knowledge
base.So, though my approach has been successful by most measures, there’sroom for improvement.For example, I don’t always have a lot of energy. Some meals – evenclean meals – leave me feeling weighed down, heavy. So that leaves mecurious to know more about her philosophies.Plus, I’m familiar with some of the principles Snyder advocates – thebenefits of eating more raw vegetables and fruit, why animal proteinshould be avoided and the digestive issues that come from consumingdairy.Snyder highlights some of the advantages of raw eating and veganism ,though she never explicitly labels herself with either approach.Neither method is new. For years, Jack LaLanne talked about “the powerof juice” and said, “If man made it, don’t eat it.” Dr. Don Colburn in the2001 book “Toxic Relief” made a lot of the same points as Snyder. And the2010 documentary “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” follows people on ajuicing fast and shows dramatic improvements in health and weight loss.But Snyder, who says she based her approach in part on her extensiveworld travels, puts her own spin on these concepts by focusing as muchon beauty as health.Among her more memorable suggestions is avoiding peanuts, which shecalls “nature’s oops.” Snyder says peanuts are by themselves a bad foodpairing, since they contain both protein and starch. Also, she says all
other nuts should be consumed raw and soaked because the roastingprocess destroys nutrients.Snyder explains why certain foods – like gluten, dairy and soy – shouldbe avoided. And she breaks her program into three tiers, BlossomingBeauty, Radiant Beauty, True Beauty. And she advises against makingtoo many changes too quickly.I recommend the book for anyone interested in health and fitness.Snyder presents the information in a way that is easy to understand andaccessible, even if implementation would prove to be daunting for many.As for me, I’m about a week into the “Radiant Beauty” phase. I want togive her approach a 30-day trial run to see what happens and what partsof her approach I can incorporate into my own.I have a pantry full of probiotic enzyme salad, a container full of soakedgarbanzo beans, some nutritional yeast and an open mind.
