How Food Makes You Beautiful

It’s a great time to be you! Gone are the days when there was just one standard of beauty. Open a catalog or magazine and you’ll see beauty of all shapes, sizes, ages, and colors. Models and movie stars are skinny and plump, tall and short, young and old. Beauty can mean ample curves or elegant angles; long, luxuriant hair or a short bob; smoky eyes or a freckled face. What’s not in style is looking super-skinny, undernourished, and unhealthy.

Today the key to attractiveness is radiant health and abundant energy. By making the most of your natural beauty, you’ll turn heads and capture hearts. If you were born with pale skin, freckles, and flaming red locks, you can be beautiful. If you have golden skin, almond eyes, and pin-straight hair, you can be beautiful. If you have ebony skin, lush features, and wild curls, you can be beautiful. Whether your hair is jet black, snow white, or anything in between, you can set your own standards of beauty because your allure is going to come from inside.

When you start really nourishing the beautiful body you were given, you’ll find yourself reaching less often for the concealers you’ve been using to hide troubled skin or camouflage those dark circles under your eyes. You’ll use less makeup and fewer maintenance products once your skin regains its youthful suppleness, your thick and glossy hair grows in, and your nails grow long and strong. People will comment on how fabulous you look—or, if they can’t quite put their finger on your new appearance, you’ll get comments like “Did you get new glasses?” or “Did you cut your hair?” As you will read in the pages ahead, I stand firmly behind the fact that what you put into your body—including all of the food and beverages you consume on a daily basis—will come out through your physical appearance. When you eat a healthy, anti-aging beauty diet, you exude confidence while looking your absolute best.

While I have to admit genetics plays a role in how we age, it’s now clear that there is a lot we can do to stay looking youthful well into our 40s, 50s, and beyond. It’s good to know that eating my Top 10 Beauty Foods—and drinking my two Beauty Beverages!—can help keep our skin firm, eyes sparkling, hair glossy, nails strong, and teeth gleaming.

First, some food basics. Don’t worry, this will be fun. I just want you to understand the concepts of eating for beauty so that you will make the best possible decisions for your health and appearance for the rest of your life. When we eat poorly, it shows. Even if we maintain an ideal weight, our skin tends to break out or become wrinkled.

Our hair looks dry and damaged, our fingernails may have ridges or white spots, and our teeth become stained and even cavity-ridden. Definitely not the picture of beauty! Thankfully, changing our diet is easy, and the rewards are both rapid and radiant.
What makes a Beauty Food? Look for quality proteins, wholesome carbohydrates, healthy fats, and plenty of beauty- enhancing vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The more healthful nutrients a food has, the more you’ll want to include it in your Beauty Diet.


What Is a Beauty Food? To make the most out of every calorie, choose foods that are:

*Nutrient dense, meaning rich in nutrients—including high-quality proteins, healthy carbohydrates, and beneficial fats— compared to calorie content,

*High in micronutrients, such as beauty-enhancing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals,

*Fresh, and preferably grown locally, to preserve the natural vitamins,

*Organic, or at least grown and prepared without preservatives, pesticides, antibiotics, artificial colors, and other additives,

*Unrefined, unprocessed, and unbleached,
