Hungry Chick Vs. Hungry Girl? For months, all I heard about was how much weight my sister-in-law lost from my family and how great she looked. So today I went to BN to get the book. I ended up buying the Hungry Chick Dieting Solution and the Hungry Girl Diet when I saw it too. I am so glad that I bought this book. The Hungry Girl Diet, I found, is a 4-week program. There is a separate chapter for each of the 4 weeks, and within each week there is a separate page for every day of the week (i.e., Week 1 - Day 1, Week 1 - Day 2, Week 1 – Day 3, etc.). Every single day has its own menu plan broken down into Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Snacks. It is very structured, but there is also a lot of flexibility within that structure. For each meal, you can choose from 3 different menu choices (breakfast on Week 1, Day 1, for example, offers your choice of Mega Fruit ‘n Yogurt Bowl, Egg Scramble & Bun, or Growing Oatmeal B-fast). For every menu item, there is a reference to the page number in the book where you can find the recipe for that item. There are over 60 recipes in this book. When the book is opened to a menu plan for a given day, the menu plan is on the right-hand page, and the left-hand page has helpful hints, time-saving shortcuts, money-saving tips, ideas for food swaps, etc. There are even little reminders throughout about when to drink your water. But, only The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution was able to tell me how much water I should be drinking. I already started following what the Hungry Chick recommended for that. In the end, I am seeing this little mix up as a win-win. I will use The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution for its great advice and the Hungry Girl Diet for its great recipes.

I am a fan so maybe my opinion about Lisa will be slightly biased. But, the truth is this book did nothing for me. I felt like it was a little too much a little too late. It is March and now Lisa wants to jump in with this diet. Why not just write another cookbook? If she wanted to help her legions of fans, she would have released this book in January when we were really trying to get motivated to lose weight. If anything, I think that she is trying to capitalize off the success of that other book. I have heard nothing but good things about it. I also found out the book came out over a year ago. I gave up on dieting like this myself after the Shred Diet, the Super Shred Diet, the Doctor's book and even Rocco's book did nothing for me. I just cut back on what and how much I eat and I exercise more. But, I am curious about that water thing that somebody else posed about. Sorry Lisa, I love you, but I put the book back after I read it for a few minutes in the store. If I want to eat with less calories, I will buy one of your cookbooks, not a pretend dieting book.

    Great buy.

    I'm 75 year old. The older you get the harder it is to lose weight. Well this diet is working for me and I can't eat everything they tell me to eat. I've had to cut down on portion sizes but it gives you a feeling of fullness. I eat more now than I did when I was dieting on my own. I preordered it on Nook so I received it on the first day available. I read it that night and started the diet the next day. So far I've lost 6 lbs slowly. No overnight huge drop in weight but gradually and consistently.

    Great diet, but sugar concern.

    Big Portions, but noticed quite abit of sugar. I am concerned about the amount of sugar in Greek yogurt that is included in many of the recipes and breakfast. One yogurt serving can contain 23grams or more of sugar. 7grams equals one teaspoon. Do the math....sugar does not help any diet!!
