I’m so happy to be able to share Leticia’s story with all of you, as our very first featured Beauty Detox Transformation story! We’re going to be featuring these community transformation stories here on a monthly basis, so we can continue to inspire each other as a community…and cheer each other on. If you have one you’d like to share, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leticia, a Patient Care Coordinator from Virginia, was able to drop 65 lbs of baby weight and clear her skin up by following the Beauty Detox philosophy. Read her inspiring story below:
How long have you been following the Beauty Detox philosophy? Was it easy to incorporate it into your lifestyle?
I started with the launch of Beauty Detox Solution, which was an easy transition into my lifestyle because I was ready to do something about my digestion problems. As soon as I read the “light to heavy” approach it, changed my life! I found the book really easy to understand and follow and I relate to her because being from another country, I had an idea of other natural foods, but just didn’t know how to introduce them into my life. Kimberly has so many ideas and easy to follow programs.
What is your daily regimen? Give us an example of a typical meal plan and exercise routines.
Today I had a glass of water, warm water with juice of half a lemon, breakfast:banana buckwheat smoothie with chia seeds, mid-morning:rolled oats with 1/2 an avocado, some almond milk, 2tbs hemps seeds and 1tbs flaxseed meal. For lunch(as I’m typing!) huge lettuce salad with tomatoes, carrots, radishes, red cabbage with raw apple cider vinegar, tahini, and almond butter dressing (it’s so big, this is all I’m having for lunch!) Dinner will be Raw Gorilla Taco Wraps from Beauty Detox Foods. I also alternate Pilates and body pump workouts.
How do you feel after adopting the Beauty Detox lifestyle? What changes have you experienced?
I feel a million times better; after years of struggling with digestion problems and inflammation in the body I finally found a long term solution that helps me lose weight and feel/look better. Just the fact that I don’t want coffee anymore amazes me! I don’t break out anymore, I don’t even need lotion, my skin is just perfect, not dry and not oily. My hair is thick and I also started getting white hair during my last pregnancy (when I’m pregnant I crave deli sandwiches,it’s horrible) and now it’s all gone!
How has this impacted your outlook on life?
I’m just a happier person now that I don’t have to worry about my “colon health” if I can put it that way. Now that I’m not all “backed up” anymore, I feel happy and free. I have energy to do things, and I smile more. I tell everybody about the Beauty Detox lifestyle and it makes me feel great that I can inspire others.
What words of encouragement do you have for others in the Beauty Detox Community?
I think that the most important thing is to be realistic and know that the step you are taking is for a better and healthier you. The feeling of empowerment when you look back at those pictures and you see this amazing new you is worth every craving for unhealthy choices you might have.
What helped me the most was to set realistic goals. I gained 65lbs during my last pregnancy, and after having the baby I wanted to lose 35 more lbs, but it was hard and I kept repeating to myself “35 lbs.” Until one day I told myself I will do 5lbs at a time, and that’s when I started losing the weight. Small steps, small victories, and… now, the baby is 10 months, I lost 65lbs, I feel and look better than when I was 20 and I’m HAPPY. Plan your meals, be prepared and don’t give up!

Love this story. I’m trying to lose 50+ lbs and lately the foods I’ve been eating have made me feel sick. I want to try changing my eating habits and try this.
Leticia, you look amazing. Thanks for sharing your story. Happy Mother’s Day!
thank you so much for sharing this story. But ..must say i am little confused .. was the 65lbs you gain actually partly your baby weight? You say you gained 65lbs during your pregnancy … Well,,, that means part of the weight was the baby .. Wasn’t it? I think statements like that take away from the beauty and gift of the Beauty detox ..
Warmest regards, Monika
Thank you for sharing this wonderful story. I have been having a difficult time sticking to it. Planning is definitely been a problem as well as a husband and child who like different things to eat. I am inspired by your words and will continue to try.
Congrats Leticia! Thank you for sharing your experience. Inspiring.
well done you look great.
That is such an amazing lifestyle change that you have made for your self. Good for you!!! I can so relate. I gained 60 pounds with my son & I could not take it off. That is until I found Kimberly & the BDS. Like you I set a goal for myself that was realistic & I stuck with the program to the tee. I lost 60 pounds & went from a size 10/12 to a.size 4. I have never felt. better in my life I want to share my transformation story so badly so I can inspire others but my problem is I was so embarrassed to take pictures when I was so over weight that I can’t find any. I can take plenty of pictures of how good I look know. I will keep searching to find one somewhere & share my story too. What a great inspiration you are.
You have made such an amazing progress! You look beautiful and healthy. You have inspired me to take the detox journey. I am also a mother of a 16 month old daughter. During my pregnancy, I gained 54 pounds. I lost all the baby weight, but I’m facing a challenge; I keep fluctuating over and over again. I’m tired of trying to reach my ideal weight( I call this vanity weight loss) but I know that once I get there, I will feel much better about myself. Right now, I have problems with constipation etc, I have also made the glowing green juice, and it has worked very well for me. Another problem that I have is my family, they look at me like if I’m crazy when they see me drinking my smoothie. I have no support, and I tend to relapse because they keep buying process foods and other junk. Any advice on this? I would love to hear from you.
Kimberly, I would like yo hear from you also! I need help!!
Can you contact me thru the FB page? I’m here to help!
She looks amazing!
I am so excited to hear about your experience with the de-tox program. I have been fighting cancer since 2004. I was fortunate enough to find out about Kimberly and the miracle of Chia seeds. I left my e-mail address and website address of my daughter for the Lifemax/Chia seeds. Please call or e-mail I am so excited to share stories.
Thaks for letting read Leticia story about how she lost 65 pounds. I am happy for her but it’s hard for me to follow her. I get up 9 and 10 am some mornings all because I go to bed late. And I do want to get 7 or 8 hrs. I bought both of your books. I read through both of the books.
Good for you Leticia! You look really amazing, keep up the good work or should I say Good Health!
Well done Leticia – you look absolutely beautiful!
Dear Kimberly, I posted a comment earlier in a moment of little anger as I felt such an amazing site and program is using unnecessary not the best marketing techniques. My sister bought me your book and we are promoting your site and your book all the time. I’ve stopped now, for above mentioned reasons …thinking it may be getting too commercial.
I posted it here. , But my previous comment was meant only for Leticia… And this email is only for Kimberly or the marketing staff.
Please feel free to delete it all. I just wanted to let you know my feelings about the article and its promotion.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful ideas, shared knowledge and books.
Warmest regards, Monika Burton
Hi Monica, is really sad that you feel that way, I’m a real person, a mother of 2 with a full time job that manages to introduce a healthy lifestyle into my crazy daily routine, this is as real as you can get, they actually didn’t change anything of what I wrote, I thought they were going to “edit” my little Q&A but they didn’t, I also offered more pictures because I actually took this after picture long before I lost all the weight, so they could also made it a lot more commercial and they chose not to. I don’t know if you have children of your own, but if you take the time to go as far as reading all the positive comments on this blog, you’ll know that is not easy to loose the baby weight, and yes, the baby was part of the weight but what is the real challenge here? Again, not sure if you have children. Anyways, I’m real and I can only speak for myself and the experience I have with this particular blog post and it seem pretty real to me.
Good luck to you,
You look beautiful! Thanks for sharing your story!
So proud of you! I have some comments and questions. I just had a baby (well 7 months ago…whew..time flies). I am so motivated to change my life for the better and to be a good role model for my precious baby girl. I have about 20 more pounds to go, but have some worries. I am exclusively breastfeeding and I am a bit worried that my milk supply will diminish, do you have any thoughts or comments about that? Also, I can’t wait to help my girl learn about healthy food choices, but I am so torn about offering her cow’s milk when she is past a year. I am hoping to only offer her breast milk for 18 months, but after that I don’t know what to do. There is such a push to give babies vitamin D milk. Anyway, from mother to mother you look amazing and more than anything I just want ENERGY to be the mommy by baby girl needs. Any advice would be great!
Leticia!! Wow!! Love your Q&A!! You look beautiful and your story is truly inspiring!! Thank you for sharing so candidly. Big Congrats to a healthy you!! Gratefully, Pauline
Beautiful- absolutely beautiful. Kudos- great job.
