    Very Snobby

    I was wishing that the author would have been non stereotypical, but yet she was. This book centered around her circle of self-absorbed clients and neighbors whose main objective was to make everyone outside of this area listed feel inferior to them. No real solid advise, other than if you want to get respected, starve yourself.

    Not Possible & Meant for those in NY

    If you are lactose intolerant, you don't want this book. On this diet, you are expected to eat lots of dairy. Milk, in fact, is a poor source of calcium because the human body has a hard time absorbing the calcium in milk. Even though the author suggests low fat versions, dairy is still fattening and causes bloating in many people. Get ready to start counting calories and measuring portions which is a typical downside of dieting and why most people give up soon after starting. I was discouraged even before finishing the book. I bought the book out of curosity instead of for weight control because I am happy with my weight, but if I had weight to lose, I would not chose to follow the guidelines in this book. The author mainly targets those living in New York City and who are familiar with the sites. A very disappointing and discouraging read. This is not the solution to weight loss.

    Not a New Yorker

    The book had a couple of good points about nutrition, but overall it was a waste of time. The author tried to help out by describing things to do or places to go eat, but they were all in New York. The author also went into detail about ordering healthy alternatives when you go out to eat, but they were specific to the restaurant that just happened to be IN NEW YORK. The Diet Plan was good, as long as you enjoy eating fish a lot.
