Overview

From the Pump Energy Food restaurants come more than 150 delicious recipes to help you lose body fat, gain muscle, and have more energy than you ever thought possible.

Athletes, trainers, dancers, dieters, and celebrities have been eating at New York's popular Pump Energy Food restaurants to lose weight and get lean. Now, with over 150 recipes, as well as two 2-week diet plans (one for losing weight and one for bulking up) and a "physical fitness" diet for eating right all year round, readers will be pumped to create these delicious and healthy recipes in their own kitchens.

The Pump mission is centered around four principles: stay in shape, increase energy, lose weight, and build muscle. The Pump Energy Food reduces empty carbohydrates and bad fat while favoring protein, fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy grains. The book includes The Pump's most popular dishes, with easy, step-by-step instructions. Recipes are coded as to whether they're suitable for people who want to slim down or build muscle, and they include motivating testimonials.

Recipes include the Supercharged Diesel Plate, The Rock, The Champion, and many more!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The Pump Energy Food has been serving health-minded Manhattanites high-protein fare since 1997, well before "low carb" became the mantra of the day. This collection of recipes and healthy-eating tips from the restaurant's owners is one of the stronger offerings on today's high-protein cookbook shelf: it explains how to make filling, flavorful foods and has a friendly, community feel to it, thanks in part to the numerous recipe introductions featuring commentary by the authors on customers' reactions to the dishes. The Kapelonises, who now operate four Pump restaurants in New York, list the "right foods" and the "wrong foods," and anyone who's been paying moderate attention to current diet crazes won't be surprised to find fish, chicken, turkey, egg whites, beans, nuts and brown rice on the "right" list, and white bread, white pasta, fried foods, butter and sugary beverages on the "wrong" list. Where the book shines is in its recipes, which cover appetizers, salads, main courses (meat and vegetarian), pizzas and burgers, salads, vegetable sides, shakes and juices, and the restaurant's famous "Super-Charged Plates." Although the book will be of most interest to athletes and other active people, its food-Ginger-Tofu Stir-Fry, Chicken with Spinach and Ricotta, Eggplant Carpaccio, Banana-Strawberry Soy Protein Shake, Pump Apple Pie-is so tasty, it'll appeal to all.

Library Journal
The Pump Energy Food restaurants in New York City have become a mecca for athletes, trainers, dancers, and dieters. This cookbook authored by the chain's founders features a variety of excellent recipes and sample menus for those who want to increase energy, lose weight, or build muscle mass. Relying heavily on grains and vegetables, but also using lean meats and poultry, these recipes allow for larger portions than usual. Nevertheless, the tasty dishes will also appeal to nondieters.
