Overview

Figuring out how to eat right and stay healthy on your own is hard! Here is help from someone who's been there. Like many girls, Daphne Oz struggled with her weight as a teenager and couldn't stick with the extreme restrictions of fad diets. She was able to seize control over her health and her weight only when she recognized the golden opportunity offered by the transition to college life.

With the help of her father and grandfather, both cardiac surgeons, and her grandmother, a nutritional adviser, she figured out a whole new approach to managing her weight. How well did it work? You be the judge: In her first semester of college, she not only skipped the proverbial Freshman 15-she lost 10 pounds and became healthier than she had ever been. Now the secrets of her success are available to you. The Dorm Room Diet will keep you looking good, feeling great, and staying fit!

Daphne's 8-step program shows you how to: stop eating out of emotional need, navigate the most common danger zones at school for unhealthy eating, get the exercise you need, even in your small dorm room, choose vitamins and supplements wisely, relax and rejuvenate amid the stress of college life. The Dorm Room Diet will empower you to use your newfound independence to create a healthy lifestyle while you're in college-and for the rest of your life.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a great book to pack between the extra-long twin sheets and study lamp." —Publishers Weekly
Publishers Weekly
Daughter of bestselling cardiologist Mehmet Oz (You: The Owner's Manual), the young Oz struggled with weight as a teen. Now a Princeton sophomore, she offers a range of advice for college girls hoping to sidestep the "Freshman 15." Those late-night study binges, tailgating and sports events, parties, TV watching and heavy talks can lead even clever Ivy Leaguers down the road to weight gain. No doubt inspired by her dad (who penned the introduction), Oz offers an eight-step program that advocates sensible, healthful eating, exercise and vitamin use. While warning against the pitfalls of high-calorie foods like alcohol, full-fat cheese and simple carbs, she okays coffee in moderation, bread dipped in olive oil, and chocolate. Balance is crucial, Oz notes, pointing out that one night of partying won't spoil everything if it's followed by healthy eating the next day. Punctuating her text with practical tips (stock up on wholesome snacks such as almonds and veggies before snuggling in for a study marathon, the author addresses her female peers in a breezy, conversational style. This is a great book to pack between the extra-long twin sheets and study lamp. (Sept.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
When at least one of your parents is in the medical profession, it can be assumed that you have been acculturated into a lifestyle that involves healthy eating and exercise habits. That will not absolve you, however, of the potential to pack on the unwelcome "freshman 15." In The Dorm Room Diet, Oz-whose physician father coauthored the popular You: The Owner's Manual and You: The Smart Patient-writes openly and engagingly on the subject of eating well and staying fit as a college student. She outlines her own experience as a first-year student and includes an exercise plan described with simple line drawings. One of the eight steps of practical advice she offers deals with how to become informed and prepared and how to stay focused on getting healthy. In The Smart Student's Guide, registered dietitian M.J. Smith (fellow, American Dietetic Assn.; Diabetic Low-Fat and No-Fat Meals in Minutes) and her son, Fred, a college senior who put on the freshman 15, instruct readers on getting the most they can out of the college experience while remaining healthy and happy. The book's strengths are its two different food plans, extensive sections on sleep and stress, and 40 recipes that can be prepared in the dorm. Oz's voice is clearly heard in her book, which is focused on diet and exercise, whereas the Smiths' book feels more like advice coming from a parent or professional, as stated facts are backed with citations to research. Both are valuable in their own right and are recommended for public libraries and consumer health collections with a focus on YAs.-Beth Hill, Univ. of Idaho Lib., Moscow Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal

Adult/High School
Written in a style similar to Steven Covey's "Highly Effective Teens" books (S & S) and passing along wisdom the author learned from her father, Mehemet Oz, author of You: The Owner's Manual (HarperCollins, 2005), this title is part dietary adviser, part survival guide for the first year of college. Specifically addressing girls, it is filled with quotes from young women, giving tips for staying healthy. Topics include eating habits for all-nighters and illustrated exercises to be done in the dorm room. While the dietary advice is general in nature, Oz chronicles her own struggles with weight and is encouraging to readers trying to maintain healthy lifestyles. Checklists, self-reflection questions, and boxed tips are interspersed throughout. The tone is upbeat and positive. Teenage girls will enjoy the anecdotes and learn a lot about staying healthy along the way.

    Great book!

    As a college student, I highly recommend this book! It covers all obstacles that a college student may run into: all-you-can-eat cafeterias, late nights, parties, limited space for working out. I really enjoyed the writer's perspective, too--she is very refreshing. And if that isn't incentive enough, did I mention I lost 5 lbs in the first week?

    a reviewer

    I train people and like evaluating diet books now and then- and this one caught my eye. Written by daughter of Mehmet Oz, author of the popular 'YOU' series of books, the author is also a college student that managed to actually lose weight while in college- no small feat these days. Throughout the book she relays helpful tips for losing weight and keeping in shape- advice specifically geared for students of higher learning. I found the book to be an easy read with a wealth of info for kids on the go. A lot of topics usually left out of weight loss books, such as emotional eating and a chapter on motivation (Chapter 1) make this book stand out from the rest. With all this book has to offer, it would not be outlandish for every parent to pack a copy of this book in their kid's suitcase as they send them off to the institutions of higher learning. I give it 5 stars for its well rounded diet and exercise info.

    Very Good

    I purchased this for my daughter. Even though she is in her second year she was beginning to struggle more with her food. She was so grateful! She really has gotten so much from this book not just in regards to food. But the dorm life and how to relate to others. Her roommate was a friend then really began to change. This helped her deal with the stress of college life and social changes. I recommend this book and which I had gotten it for her in her freshman year but better a little late than not at all :) Dr. Oz and his wife did a wonderful job raising their children. Allowing the blessings to follow to others. It relates to young people. She has shared this book with so many in her dorm. Colleges should just begin realizing that eating healthy isn't that difficult even on a large scale. The chefs work with the kids now and have a great relationship.
