It’s time for #featurefriday here on the blog!
I’m so happy to share with you the story of Nicki, a beautiful woman who is part of our Beauty Detox Community. She shares her journey from gradually eliminating certain foods from her diet to coping with her family’s concern with her new lifestyle towards overall health— applying the Beauty Detox lifestyle.
How did you get started with the Beauty Detox lifestyle?
I was attracted to the Beauty Detox philosophy because of the passion behind it and the facts that back it up. I remember the shock and empowerment I felt when I read The Beauty Detox Solution for the first time. All the science made total sense to me. I felt like I had uncovered the secret to health and I was determined to try it out for myself.
How long have you been following the Beauty Detox principles?
Explain your average day? Give us an example of a typical meal plan and exercise routines.
I always start my day with hot water with lemon, followed by one of Kimberly’s Probiotics. I practice yoga at home or with my mom at her house for about 30 minutes. I absolutely love the Glowing Green Smoothie (GGS) because I’ve never liked traditional breakfast foods anyway, and it feels so good to start my day with something so pure.
I always use cucumber instead of celery and sometimes I’ll substitute a peach for the pear. My favorite greens to use are kale and spinach. I’m always trying new vegan recipes for lunch. It’s often a bowl of soup, like the Vegan Cream of Mushroom Soup (one of my favorites), and some baked veggies or a kale salad.
What is the biggest difference you feel after adopting the Beauty Detox lifestyle? What obstacles did you face?
The biggest differences I’ve experienced since beginning the Beauty Detox lifestyle has been an increase in energy and the improvement of my skin. Following proper food combinations and eating Light to Heavy have given me so much more energy.
I’ve dealt with acne and a ruddy complexion since I was 13. At the age of 24, I decided I had to do something different. I began researching skin and that’s when I found the Beauty Detox books. I’m so thankful I did, because even though my skin is not perfect, it is gradually and significantly improving as I go deeper into the program.
How has following the Beauty Detox Principles impact your outlook on life?
Before starting this journey, I felt I had no control over my body. I thought prescription acne creams would be my solution, and when they didn’t work, I felt hopeless. After discovering all the delicious food I can enjoy, and that I have control over the state of my body, I feel so free.
What is your favorite recipe and why?
What words of encouragement do you have for others in the Beauty Detox Community?
Thank you Nicki…
I hope everyone is feeling inspired after reading this True Beauty story! We are all so proud of you Nicki!! You are an inspiration to the community and to those who have similar obstacles in overcoming acne, dealing with judgment from others about dietary changes (even if well-meaning), and helping loved ones see that the Beauty Detox lifestyle is a healthy transition to a joyful life where you can reach your full potential!
There are many of us Beauties who have dealt/or are dealing with acne, and it is so inspiring to see how you were able to move forward in your life by becoming more aware of the impact food has on our Beauty and health. Acne isn’t just a superficial issue; it impacts how you interact with others and your confidence levels.
