Overview

The 10-Step Program for Creating a Healthy Lifestyle Plan That Really Works

The Dorm Room Diet

Revised and Updated Edition

Figuring out how to eat right and stay healthy on your own can be hard! Here is help from someone who's been there. Like many girls, Daphne Oz struggled with her weight as a teenager and hated the extreme restrictions of fad diets. She wanted to find a healthy lifestyle solution that would let her enjoy a full college experience without packing on the proverbial Freshman 15. But could it be done?

With the help of her father and grandfather, both cardiac surgeons, and her mother and grandmother, both holistic nutrition advisors, Daphne developed 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 typical beer-and-pizza-fueled weight gain—she lost 10 pounds and became healthier than she had ever been.

The transition to college life presents a golden opportunity to seize control of your health for good, and now the secrets of Daphne's success are available to you in The Dorm Room Diet.

Get inspired. Get informed. Get started!

In this revised and updated edition of her national bestseller, Daphne shows you how to:

  • stop eating out of emotional need
  • navigate the most common danger zones for unhealthy eating, such as eating on the run, late-night studying, sporting events, and parties
  • get the exercise you need, even in your dorm room
  • choose vitamins and supplements wisely

Daphne also includes recipes that you can prepare in your dorm room or kitchen (including vegan and gluten-free dishes), and an informative, new section on "conscious eating," explaining how your food choices affect your health and the planet.

The Dorm Room Diet will empower you to use your newfound independence to create a healthy lifestyle while in college—and for the rest of your life.

Editorial Reviews

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 Guide for Dorm Eating!

    This book was great when trying to make a lifestyle change. It was an entertaining read and very easy. It gave a lot of helpful hints, ideas, and recipes to help. Daphne Oz tries to encourage you to be conscious about your health instead of demanding you to change the way you are. "Diet" is not the word I would have used to describe this book. The only compliant I have is that all the foods and recipes are vegetarian based... however the author is a vegetarian. Overall a great book to read!!!

    I think this book is fantastic!! Daphne Oz really informed me about simple carbs vs. complex carbs and why we should all avoid simple carbs. I've followed a lot of her guidelines and have lost almost 30 lbs!! It really has become a healthy lifestyle and not a "diet", and i'm so much happier now that i've started losing the weight! i know this is something i can keep up for the rest of my life and i won't gain the weight back!!

    Shayla

    She walks in wearing a knee length strapless dress. The bodice is gray & goes to just below her chest. The belt is wide & black with an inset of bejewled sheer white ribbon & goes from the bodice to just above her hips. The skirt is black with gray & white flowers & goes from the belt to her knees. Her shoes are black Mary Janes wth white pearl beads all along the edges & jewels across the straps. Her purse is almost all black except that an inch & a half above the bottom is a strand of woven gold thread. Beneath it the rest of the purse is gray. Her headband is white with a large black sequined flower that has a bejeweled center. Her gloves are black with gray sateen inserts sticking out the ends & come about 2 to 3 inches above her wrists. A shiny silver jewel clasp on each glove holds the inserts in. She walks in & says, "hi. Im hosting a party. It is at "party" results five through ten the party will be all day & ends tonight at 10:50PM. See you there!! Spread the word plz." She left.
