    I think this book has a very, very specific audience--an audience that doesn't have an even basic understanding of what constitutes a healthy diet, and an audience that is younger and perhaps dealing with self-esteem issues manifested in unhealthy eating habits. In Part 1, "Rethink Beauty," Hart wastes a lot of time (about 40 pages) explaining why her book is so important, why it will change your life. The gist of her message is, "I will help you eat healthy foods, and then you will feel incredib I think this book has a very, very specific audience--an audience that doesn't have an even basic understanding of what constitutes a healthy diet, and an audience that is younger and perhaps dealing with self-esteem issues manifested in unhealthy eating habits. In Part 1, "Rethink Beauty," Hart wastes a lot of time (about 40 pages) explaining why her book is so important, why it will change your life. The gist of her message is, "I will help you eat healthy foods, and then you will feel incredible!" This section gives a pretty standard introduction to carbs, fats, proteins, and vitamins. It's basic information that most of us know or have read about before. The second section of this book is the longest. In it, Hart gives advice for what healthy habits to focus on and which foods to eat during each of the four seasons. So, for example, during spring, her advice is to fill up on cleansing fluids (i.e., drink water), plant a garden, lighten up your liver (i.e., drink lemon water), simplify supper (i.e., steam your food), and reduce toxins (i.e., don't eat processed foods). Then she lists a "beauty basket" of foods for the season (e.g., artichoke, asparagus, dandelion greens, sprouts, etc.), and gives recipes that include those foods. I found the third section to be the most useful and practical. Ironically, it is also the shortest. While not completely absent of dud advice (e.g., be sure to chew each bite of your food 20-30 times!), Hart at least covers some more relevant and interesting topics like food pairing, massage, and fermented foods. There were a couple of things about this book that irritated me. First, I hated how Hart kept using the word "un-pretty." Eating a lot of sugar is so "un-pretty." Or sometimes we just have "un-pretty" days when we just want to eat greasy pizza. Every time I read that word, it felt like judgment. It made me think of an overbearing mother who tells her slightly uncouth, boisterous daughter to "be sweet" or "be nice." I get what Hart was going for with the whole "eat good to look good" theme, but why does "pretty" have to be the name we give that lifestyle choice? I also thought Hart talked about food in an unrealistic way. While I agree that healthy, organic food is much better for my body and for the environment, let's just talk about food in a real way, you know? Eating a sweet potato is not going to make me feel "incredible." And steaming some asparagus for "supper" (my God, who says that anymore?) is not going to change my life. At one point Hart says that after you taste how good real food is, you will rethink the way you define "treats." Instead of treating yourself to sweets, you will want to treat yourself to an expensive fillet of wild salmon or a "basket brimming with organic produce." Seriously? No one who wants a piece of cheesecake is going to suddenly change her mind and instead want a "basket brimming with organic produce." Just don't say stupid things like that. Unfortunately, I think Hart's unrealistic ideas about food are present in the entire book. Truth be told, I'm not so sure her romanticized perspective on organic produce is much different from other diet crazes or food fads: it's still a part of the unhelpful belief that food, whether it be a fatty cheeseburger or a bowl of organic dandelion greens, has the power to change EVERYthing, to solve all of your problems, to make life AMAZING. In reality, though, food is just food. Yes, sugar makes you feel crappy; spinach doesn't. But neither one is an emotional panacea. Don't ask of food what it isn't meant to give. Ultimately, I thought this book was disappointing, and I really wouldn't recommend it. I think Feed Your Face: Younger, Smoother Skin and a Beautiful Body in 28 Delicious Days, The Beauty Detox Solution: Eat Your Way to Radiant Skin, Renewed Energy and the Body You've Always Wanted, and The Beauty Detox Foods: Discover the Top 50 Beauty Foods That Will Transform Your Body and Reveal a More Beautiful You address the same subject in a better way.

    Instead of reading 200 pages of this book read this instead, it's faster! Throw out all your junk food, actually just throw out all the food in your kitchen. Only eat organic fruits and vegetables and drink lots of water.....bam! You are now pretty :)

    Much of this book is information that is found in most other literature written about healthy eating. The information is good, but I found myself skimming, rather than reading, the book. I think the references at the end of the book will prove to be helpful as further resources.

    This book gives a good list of healthy foods, which is really nice, since it explains not only that it is healthy, but also what about it is healthy and what good effects it has on you. the list is very nice, with some receipts and categorization for the 4 seasons, so it gives some inspiration what to eat, explains what really nice and important benefits it has for your body and some other tips I believe to be helpful. Still the book is purest waste of time and I would not recommend it to anyone This book gives a good list of healthy foods, which is really nice, since it explains not only that it is healthy, but also what about it is healthy and what good effects it has on you. the list is very nice, with some receipts and categorization for the 4 seasons, so it gives some inspiration what to eat, explains what really nice and important benefits it has for your body and some other tips I believe to be helpful. Still the book is purest waste of time and I would not recommend it to anyone. While claiming herself that diets are no good for you, this whole book tries to force you to do exactly that, a strict diet, even if healthier than usual ones, it still tells you exactly what to eat, what not to eat and when to eat it. The most disappointing for me, I guess, was the fact that I was looking forward to just get some nice tips, how to change your every day eating in a way that makes you happier, inside and out, but what I got was a 200 Page repetition of why this book is so helpful to me, but just through repeating that several times on every pages, it doesn't become more true. I think it would have been better to focus more on the healthy foods than on the so called "Beauty Betrayers" which where mostly obvious and probably well known to anyone who has only the slightest interest in living healthily. The words she used were also a really distracting and annoying factor to me. Over and over again she says "Eat Pretty foods" "unpretty Foods" "Beauty Betrayers" etc, for the "Eat Pretty" things she talks about I just have to say that I knew the name of the book before and that she seems not really creative in using various words, since she repeated the same over and over again, as for the "unpretty food" I just believe it a wrong approach. It is important and good to learn which food is bad and good for your bodies, but calling them "unpretty" or "Beauty betrayers" is in my opinion the first step to an extreme of saying "this is good" and "this is bad" that -I believe- shouldn't be every thing we think about when we see food. I also didn't like her approach to even those "Beauty Betrayers", it is right that most people have intolerances with Dairy products, but that is still not a reason to feel guilty whenever you drink some Milk, eat cheese, butter or any other Milk product. A slice of cheese is not necessarily a bad thing, so I think it right to point out that Dairy products aren't too healthy for us, but saying you need to replace all Cow- Milk products to at least Goat or Sheep Milk, or the best, through almond milk. With extremes like that I think unhealthy extremes of Diets are very much encouraged to find their way into young peoples minds. With which we came to my last point, that I, till the end could not find out for which age this book is written. While writing as an example "Look (and Think) Like You're Twenty Again" on Page 105 and she made me for the first time even considering that it could be dedicated to not only concerned teenagers. She is also always talking about Women and stuff, which I believed to mean it is dedicated to adult woman... I actually believe that mostly teenager could really learn from the book, and even to them, I wouldn't recommend it, it is repeating the same facts for 200 Pages which is in my opinion, a pure waste of time.

What I did not enjoy about this book: The writing was not bad, per se, but it was extremely repetitive. The author used the phrase "eat pretty" far too many times for my liking, and many main points were reiterated entirely too many times. I began to feel like I was reading the same advice on replay.

    It seems like this book got a lot of negative reviews from people who expected tips or tricks to getting healthier other than eating well, exercising, drinking water and sleeping well. If that is what you expect this is not your book. While I do agree that it is a little idealistic at times, the book states that everyone's journey to health is different and you should take away what you want from it.

I thought the information about what each nutrient, food and hormone does to your body was incredibly useful. I also enjoyed the way she connected some organs and foods that aid them with spesific season. Some information was a little basic and she talks a little to much in each chapter for my taste. But all in all I would say it is a good read (atleast a good start) if you want to give more thought to what you put in your body.

    I finished the book with the intention that this book only appeals to a compact and specific group and I am in no way included in it. I was interested momentarily but altogether I just wanted to get it ove with. It was very repetitive. Although I learned a few new things, the rest held no interest for me.

    Like most nutrition/life-style changing books, Jolene Hart is adamant that her ways are best, but what I like about this book is readers can easily pick and choose which aspects they’d like to follow. I love the ideas of beauty betrayers and the simple intentions and suggested fresh produce listed for each season. Definitely a book I’ll reference in the future, and one whose lists I’ll use seasonally!

    Essentially, this book is about how to eat better so you look and feel better. Simple enough. So this book definitely has some bad points - maybe it’s not the most realistic, some of it is insanely obvious and it does get a bit repetitive- but I think it’s a good book to have. It’s probably all stuff you can Google, but I love the section of the book that tells you what’s in season at any particular time of the year and what each fruit or vegetable is good for (eg.

I was a bit confused when they said that apple cider vinegar was highly alkaline (I could be wrong but isn’t vinegar an acid??) but otherwise, decent information, some healthy recipes and probably a good book to own and refer to, rather than read through in one go.

    I have had this book for a while and just got around to reading it. While there is useful information in this book I feel like it's only useful for someone with no knowledge of food or the human body. Not to be mean but I don't understand why this book was so popular. The tips in this book are easy and nothing extraordinary or groundbreaking. Don't eat fried foods, eat vegetables. (?) I didn't learn anything new and I honestly feel like I wasted my time with this book. Very disappointed, especia I have had this book for a while and just got around to reading it.

    Just the motivation I needed to kickstart a more healthful future. The author really does a great job of pointing out that food contributes most to our wellbeing and inner beauty - which is then reflected to the world. 4 stars because of outdated references to the health of eggs (cholesterol bombs) and promotion of fish (omega 3s are much more easily obtained from plant sources and don’t come with heavy metals or bioaccumulated toxins)

    I meant to finish this book last year. It was a short, easy read, but I found it a little boring. This would make a good coffee table book. It has a pretty cover and is filled with pretty pictures. It also has recipes. I found the overall content of the book, "eating well makes you look better," and "eat seasonably" pretty unoriginal.

    Heelin

    This book is pretty basic so it's great for anyone who is just starting out and knows nothing about nutrition or health. It doesn't capture nutrition from a deep and whole point of view so you don't get the entire picture so you can't apply the knowledge effectively, especially if you want to follow a non-omnivorous diet. If you eat both plant and animal based food then you might like this.

    i forgot i read this during vacay! LOVE it, want my own copy/maybe the accompanying journal?? TBH sometimes a little too ~WELLNESS BLOGGER~ (refers to some foods as ‘beauty betrayers’ which felt shame-y)! but if you want to learn more abt why certain foods are considered “good for you” and how ur diet affects your skin/hair/digestion, i would recommend! very informative!!

    I love how this book explains the benefits of different foods in a science-backed, but easy to understand way and also explains the benefits of eating seasonally. The author gives some helpful wellness tips throughout the book and talks about healthy digestion, breathing & meditation, healthy sleep, etc. in an upbeat, encouraging writing style.

    Well written, slightly redundant It felt almost like reading a health ad rather than getting health info. While the information was there, it felt almost like a seminar to sell a product rather than educate you.

    Beautifully presented book that shares some great ideas about health and beauty. There are no great surprises but it does remind you to think seasonally and be as colourful with your plate as possible.

    I really liked the information presented in this book. I am trying to incorporate more nutritious choices in my diet, and this book presents a thorough explanation of the benefits of different vegetables, spices, fruits through the different seasons.

    Don't wrinkle your nose at the title. This book has good nutritional advice for women. It's not just for healthy vanity, but for hormone balance and stress too. I have gathered a few Jolene Hart books this year and I'm glad I did.

    Love how she nails foods link to true natural beauty. Read this book of you're serious about your healthy lifestyle. No more sugar in my diet but natural sweeteners. Honey and more honey.

    Life changing, must read book. Never before have I read about nutrition and lifestyle in this way. Already sent 2 of these books to other people because it was that impactful. And I found it in a Little Free Library!

    Nothing overly new in this book, but I like how the author approaches eating and I like the journal and the quiz to find out your relationship with food.

    As a former esthetician, I wish I could rate this book less than one star. Horrible.
