Just Another Diet
I love Hungry Girl (Lisa). But this book is just another diet. It's so restrictive that and there's so much white knuckling that you'd be left clueless after being done with this diet!
I lost over 80 pounds over the course of a year and I made a lifestyle change. This book is no way a lifestyle change.
There are good recipes in this and you can use this while doing another diet, so there's the upside.
Love the info in here
Downloaded the app and set up a weeks worth of meals. Loved the hints and alternatives presented to prevent boredom in meals. The plan looks healthy, lots of veggies, healthy proteins, options for dairy and fruit, healthy carbs via oatmeal and fruits etc. Some of the recipes may appear in other books but there are definite variations on them. This book with the app is so worth it.
A diet for truly hungry people!!!
The Hungry Girl Diet is truly for hungry girls! I actually found it difficult, impossible at times, to eat ALL of the food allotted each day! Now that is a great “diet”!
While a lot of the information seems obvious (don’t drink your calories, eat a LOT of veggies, etc.), there are some incredible tricks that make it seem like you are cheating. An example is the fettuccine alfredo made primarily from Laughing Cow cheese wedges, a dish that clocks in around 100 calories yet tastes like it’s easily as rich and creamy as the real deal for four times the calories. For this recipe alone, I’ll be eternally grateful!
The plan and recipes are simple and incredibly delicious. Best of all, even making some adjustments to the plan (I have an occasional glass of wine, I use whole eggs instead of egg whites) I have already lost five pounds in the first week. If you want to eat good, easy to prepare food, yet still lose weight, grab this book right now!
