The national bestseller, now updated with a fresh look and new material and recipes–written especially for college students by a college student who avoided the Freshman 15 with her own healthy lifestyle plan.As a teenager, Daphne Oz struggled with her weight, trying fad diets with extreme restrictions difficult to stick with, and always ended up frustrated, right back where she started. Taking the opportunity of the major transition to college life and living on her own, Daphne developed her own healthy eating and exercise plan that would not only help her avoid the "Freshman 15," but help her lose 10 pounds in her first semester.In an easy-to-follow 10-step program, The Dorm Room Diet addresses issues unique to college life and its danger zones—eating on the run, late-night studying, sporting events, and parties—with practical advice for making good choices in any situation. Daphne also coaches students on dorm room-ready workouts, vitamins and supplements, the prevalence of alcohol and beer, and coping with stress.This completely revised edition features a new chapter on conscious eating and an additional recipe section, including vegan and gluten-free dishes that you can prepare in your dorm or kitchen.
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.
