A roadmap for hip city-dwellers to lose weight and look great--without giving up their lifestyles. How can you stick to your diet in a 24-hour-a-day, high-voltage city? Many turn to one of America’s most sought-after dieticians, Danielle Schupp, who has long counseled her A-list clients into their skinny jeans. Now, with Urban Skinny, she puts the same tools into the hands of anyone, anywhere, who lives a life on the go. The science behind her plan is simple: calories in, calories out. But it’s the strategy that makes it happen--and that’s what this book is all about.
Schupp explains how to budget calories like budgeting money, with a savings account for the occasional splurge on truffle fries or Bordeaux. With Urban Skinny, she helps readers fit their diets into their lives, not vice-versa.
- Urban Myth: Fat makes you fat.
- Urban Skinny: Fat, fortunately, is great. It actually helps you lose weight because it makes meals more satisfying and keeps you full longer. Include a little fat in every meal. A tablespoon of olive oil or a tablespoon of peanut butter is only about 100 calories. Why eat dry toast or salad with just vinegar if you don’t have to?
