Wilderness Mountain Transformation: Kat James Brings Total Transformation® to Award-winning Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired Retreat October 1st Through 5th or 7th

After twelve years conducting real-time health transformational programs—with stunning results—around the world, from health and fertility clinics where her book and principles have been used by health professionals for nearly a decade, to top European and American destination spas, to Tuscany farmhouse to horse therapy ranches, Caribbean cruises, mountain-side "tree houses" to prestigious institutes such as Omega, Kat James will bring her Total Transformation® Program back to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Spectacular Location Near Lake Lure: Used as location shots for TV shows and cinema and for getaways by Michael Jordan and Russell Crowe, you will find the 6000 acres of ever-transforming mountain wilderness that surrounds this multi award-winning Frank Lloyd Wright inspired masterpiece situated between Lake Lure and Lake James (near Asheville), NC, an awe-inspiring back drop for your own transformation.

What is Kat James' Total Transformation®? It is the real-time experience of the transformational blueprint and a mission pieced together by Kat James to save her own life more than twenty years ago, with biochemical effects that have only just begun to be understood and validated in scientific research. It is also an experience that has been transforming the bodies and lives of countless others since 2000. Honed over twelve years of "living along with" her attendees and closely observing the individual thresholds at which a unique biochemical "flip" into a different state of physical being and dramatically transformed relationship with food, Kat's Program is designed for those who are READY for a quantum leap in benefit beyond what any approach (including fasts, raw, vegan, gluten-free, and Paleo…) has afforded them, featuring:

  • Kat James' renowned body- and health-transforming"decadent" cuisine:  "In my international research and education to the scientific and medical communities I have not encountered a practical experience that so consistently produces the biochemical affects on leptin and mTOR in the context of high-end and compliance-strategic culinary execution as Kat James' Total Transformation does," stated Dr. Ron Rosedale, a world authority on leptin and metabolic health. By day three most people will feel "the change" (see numerous dramatic published success stories at

Kat James transformed her body and skin beyond recognition after a 12-year eating disorder and autoimmune disease nearly took her life. Without drugs or deprivation, the principles, strategies and resources that took her years to piece together ultimately cured not only Kat's heroin-like addiction to food (resulting in a loss of ten dress sizes), but the skin-disfiguring liver disease and autoimmune issues that destroyed her health, beauty, and self-image for more than a decade. Today, at forty-seven and with none of the effort typically made to maintain such dramatic weight loss and transformation, Kat continues to defy the no-pain, no-gain "boot camp" myths of beauty and slimness in her well-researched teachings, and in her vibrant living example.

Called "a master of self-transformation" by SELF magazine's Mary Christ Anderson, Kat's advice or programs have been featured on Today, Hallmark Channel's New Morning, TBS' Movie and a Makeover, and in nearly every beauty, fashion, and natural health magazine, including Vogue, Glamour, Oprah's magazine, O, Alternative Medicine, SELF, and Natural Health. Through her syndicated radio show, newly updated and re-released bestseller, The Truth About Beauty, national health columns, PBS special, and acclaimed, cruise- and villa-based Total Transformation® programs since 2000. Kat has helped thousands to mastermind their own healing transformations using science and strategy, rather than suffering or short-sighted quick-fixes. Known for her powerful "lifestyle upgrades" that produce visible change in a matter of days, and for her collection of one-of-a-kind resources that spell the difference between failure and success, Kat's teachings have consistently enabled others to replicate her own remarkable results, and garnered the endorsement of many leaders in nutrition and health.

Adding a compelling dimension to Kat's rare perspective are her years in the world of fashion as one of the most sought-after and quoted beauty experts and celebrity makeup artists of the 90's. A former consultant to celebrities such as Martha Stewart, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson, as well as companies such as Maybelline, Max Factor and Revlon, Kat's aesthetic background, along with years of creating illusions of perfection on models as she struggled to conquer her own beauty demons, has deepened her grasp of the emotional, physical, and superficial constraints that must be shed in order to unlock the true radiant potential in each of us.

The featured re-release of The Truth About Beauty by Simon and Schuster’s Atria Books garnered James the 2009 Silver Nautilus Book Award. After becoming an Amazon bestseller primarily by word of mouth, Kat's part-memoir, part how-to encyclopedia—relied on by consumers as well as health and beauty industry professionals around the world—was comprehensively updated with forty percent new material, book-wide reference and research updates, dramatic success stories, Kat’s highly-anticipated collection of Recipes for Transformation, and an expanded resource guide Marie Claire magazine calls “worth its weight in gold.”
Through The Truth, The Kat James Show (, her web-based Total Transformation® Programs and TelePrograms, including workshops, from Tuscany, to Vail, to Costa Rica to renowned clinics and institutions including the respected Omega Institute, as well as private programs for executives, entertainers, and professional athletes, Kat continues to expand and hone her teachings, often living alongside her students.
