Recommends it for: interested in nutrition, raw foods, health, beauty
Despite its name, this book isn't all about vanity. It's really a great resource for some of the healithiest foods on the planet...and is choke full of information that anyone can apply to their eating habits whether they follow a raw foods diet/lifestyle or not.

I strive to eat as locally and seasonally as possible (which can be more challenging living in Pittsburgh then say Hawaii) and currently do not suffer any chronic illnesses, so the raw food slant was not as relevent to my current situat

This book is much more than a health book. It is a change in lifestyle - a change in attitude! I read this book seeking advice about what to do with scars and using David Wolfe's simple advice, I've already woken up with a glowing face and diminishing scars. It's an amazing feeling!

We heal through food!!!

Yes, some of the food is more difficult to find access to than others, but as David Wolfe, says, you should not shock the body either way. What else you should keep in mind is that David Wolfe
One could be led to believe that it would be possible to promote the benefits of eating a raw-food diet without retorting to new age argumentation, aura photography and claims based either repeated assertion or fallacious logic.

I was recommended this book on the basis of the insights and overview it provides, the only thing it gave me was a deep skepticism about the whole thing.

Mr Avacado obviously deeply believes in what he writes to the point where faith obviously goes before mostly everythi
David Wolfe was one of the speakers for my nutrition program and being intrigued by his talk, I wanted to read some of his books. About the raw, fresh foods with the maximum health and beauty benefits as well as the foods to stay away from. Although I don't agree with him on every point, Wolfe makes some very persuasive arguments that the life force contained in the foods we eat add to our own body's life force and well being. The Kirlian photography in the book is beautiful and fascinating (Kir ...more

David Wolfe is pretty famous in the raw food community. (he has a ton of books) He's defintely interesting (tho too often he doesn't site references) and he's VERY enthusistic. Unfortunately, he's also often pretty disorganzed.

Favorite finds: Vitamin C makes your hair shiny and mustard greens make your hair curly. (really!)

ps - I didn't read this most current edition.
I LOVE this book. It's amazing how much information I got from this, even after reading his excellent book The Sunfood Diet Success System. It's amazing to see someone out there not only doing 100% raw vegan, but backing it up scientifically and touting it for ALL of it's benefits, not just the health related ones.

Thank you David Wolfe!!
If you well versed in David wolfed teaching then this book between 2-4/5s through starts to become a bit boring and repetitive from his other work but still worth being reminded about from the angle of beauty and natural remedies vs toxic cosmetics ...

But this book really is much more than about beauty - it really dwells deeper and importantly wider to what make your resign are beauty truly beyond cosmetics - I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it to anyone interested in beauty to open up y

The best part about this book is the section on the beautifying foods. David Wolfe gives straightforward information about a great number of what he identifies as beautifying foods including how they beautify, when to eat them, how to prepare them, and how to buy them as well as some advanced nutritional data.

My first impression of David Wolfe was that he was considerably out of touch with reality - and this book reiterates that impression for me. In order to follow the Beauty Diet (R), one must
loved this book! The title is somewhat deceptive as it gives the impression the point of reading the book is to improve one's physical external appearance. That is the end result of implementing the subject matter yet the true read is about what we put in. Included are some amazing krilian photography of plant foods, organic v. non-organic, raw v. cooked and the differences are dramatic enough to evoke a will to choose differently. The author drives through subjects such as alkaline v. acid in t ...more

The title might sound very superficial but the information in this book is very vital. It makes you rethink about the way you eat and how you should change the way you eat. It gets me more interested about juicing and eating raw food. There is stuff that is of common knowledge among people who aspire to live healthily but there is a lot of stuff that is eye opening, definitely worth reading. I wish there were more inspiring recipes though.
I thought this book was very informative. I thought the electromagnetic photography was a bit far fetched, Mr. Wolfe's knowledge on raw foods was invaluable. While I still don't have an interest in engaging in a complete raw food diet, this book gives excellent advice on which raw foods would be an excellent addition to my diet. I would recommend reading this book before buying it.
Wolfe's book is very informative. I knew before reading the book that Wolfe is an outspoken raw foodist, so I was not surprised by some of this his recommendations. The book discusses foods which contain properties of 'beauty'--which really means health. Many of the foods are obvious, some less so (burdock root?????). I've been eating his arugula/watercress salad this week, which I love. I enjoyed the book, but wonder about some of his assertions. The book contains no references/bibliography. He ...more
I first learned about David Wolfe while watching Hungry for Change. I was really impressed with this book--it's incredibly detail-oriented, yet easy to follow along with. Wolfe is a proponent of the raw food movement and I like that he backs up all his claims with a good deal of research.

This is not a book I sat and read from cover to cover. I've spent about 2 years on it, picking and choosing chapters to read. It hasn't provided any new information for me personally, since I already have a ton of knowledge about the link between physiology and physical beauty. The information in this book is accurate and I highly recomend it.

The visuals throughout the book explaining food life energy through Kirlian images changed how I see food and most things. "Medical Kirlian research will become the Iridology of the future"-Christopher Wodtke

If interested in seeing energy fields -Kirlian images are amazing and will show you...

Recommends it for: Anyone wanting to explore a healthier diet
I loved this book and had a hard time putting it down! I find the whole topic of raw and whole food nutrition fascinating, and David Wolfe certainly did not disappoint! It was interesting to read about particular foods that are better for beauty and how to eat in a way that really supports the body and promotes beauty.

Extremly informative and much easier to read than his earlier works. In this book David Wolfe breaks down the basics of the rawfood life and the simple simplicity of it the creates truly unimaginable results. He explains how this lifestyle touches every aspect of our bodies, emotions and everything in between.
This book changed my way of thinking about food. Our body is looking for minerals, and then we won't be hungry anymore and eat uselessly. Knowledge is power, and helps when scrounging for food in the kitchen.
I loved this book! Very inspirational, informational and beautifully written! :) Gorgeous pictures and prose & delicious-sounding recipes! I can't wait to try them out! I would definitely recommend it!
I liked it, offered a deeper look at each of the things I eat everyday. Brought a new appreciation to some things I never knew.
Molly Barrow
The most amazing part of the book is understanding the energy that organic raw foods contain that is distroyed by cooking.
Tricia Lenington
Another really informative, easy-to-read nutrition book that explains things well enough for me to understand.
what a terrible title; however, this book gives amazing advice on nutrition.
this is a good addition to any raw foods collection
Makes a lot of sense, however the science is weak.
Beautiful color pictures. Interesting reference.
