Beauty Detox Solution: Kimberly Snyder
The Beauty Detox Solution is written by Kimberly Snyder, celebrity nutritionist and fitness expert, and is designed to help you feel younger and achieve optimal beauty.
Kimberly Snyder’s approach involves cleansing the body to promote weight loss, improved appearance and an enhancement of general health.
You will learn a way of eating that involves choosing foods that are easy to digest, especially fresh fruit and vegetables, and eating them in the right order and best combinations to promote optimal digestion and elimination of toxins.
Beauty Detox Solution Basics
Kimberly Snyder explains that we are designed to obtain our nutrients from plant food and points out that there is a correlation between animal protein and the incidence of cancer and heart disease.
According to her when we limit our intake of animal proteins while increasing plant foods we can slow down the aging process. This is because digestion of proteins produces toxins in the body that strains the function of the liver, clogs the colon and expands fat cells.
However you don’t have to become a vegetarian to follow her plan unless you want to and she provides information in the Beauty Detox Solution about the best kinds of animal proteins to eat to support your Beauty Detox.
The eating plan centers on choosing foods that are easy to digest, in the right order and correct combinations. This reduces the production of new toxins in the body and enhances the cleansing process. You should strive to consume 80% of your diet as alkaline-forming fruit and vegetables with the remainder including whole grains, avocado, raw nuts, seeds and optionally small amounts of animal proteins.
There are three phases to the program, however, this was not designed as a three-step plan. You start with the phase that is right for you and progress at your own pace. Stay in each phase at least a month before moving on and if you feel good in a certain phase you can stay there as long as you want.
The first phase, Blossoming Beauty, helps you adjust to your new alkaline diet and can assist with the management of candida. In the next phase, Radiant Beauty, you start consuming the Glowing Green Smoothie and eat only alkaline foods in the mornings. In True Beauty, the final phase, you start each morning with the Glowing Green Juice and reduce your intake of animal products.
Green smoothies, green juice, fruit, vegetables, sprouts, sea vegetables, raw nuts and seeds, coconut, avocado, quinoa, buckwheat noodles, beans and legumes, raw goat cheese, fish, seafood, organic hormone-free meat, miso, Bragg’s liquid aminos, raw honey, organic maple syrup, raw cacao, stevia.

Kimberly Snyder says exercise is important but it is not necessary to obsess over excessive fitness routines anymore because when you cleanse your body you naturally start to look toned and lean.
She advocates yoga and a generally active lifestyle but does not make specific exercise recommendations.
