Overview

Chefs are around delicious, tempting food all day. So how do they manage to look good while eating so well? When People magazine editor Allison Adato found covering the restaurant world was taking a toll on her own waistline, she turned to top chefs for their secrets. Here, more than three dozen greats like Eric Ripert, Thomas Keller, Rick Bayless, Tom Colicchio, and Michelle Bernstein reveal how to:



• Always enjoy the food you love



• Choose big flavors for maximum pleasure



• Read a restaurant menu and indulge the way smart chefs do



• Cook the easy, satisfying meals that pros prepare at home



• Use lemon, salt, and olive oil to make almost any dish terrific



• End your day with a square of chocolate



You don’t have to cook like a four-star chef to eat like one! Like so many Americans, celebrity chefs also face the strain of balancing a good diet with a busy lifestyle. Now they share their own smart tips, scrumptious recipes and personal stories of losing over 100 pounds, of taking off baby weight and eating with kids, and of celebrating a love for food without sacrificing health—all while indulging an appetite for life.

Editorial Reviews

Cooking Light

"Wise about mindful eating, portion strategies, eating for savor, etc. Well-written, too."

Cookistry.com
Instead of a book that tells you to avoid foods, feel guilty, deprive yourself, and turn your dinner table into a science experiment, [Smart Chefs Stay Slim] is really all about welcoming good food into your life. It's about living a life surrounded by good food — and some of it very decadent — without driving yourself crazy. . . I plan on reading it twice.
Wall Street Journal

"A refreshingly readable--not to mention appetizing--alternative to run-of-the-mill diet books."

    This is more tips and hints with a few recipes mixed in. I would have loved more recipes to help my fit and slim eating goals. I really love many of the chefs featured in this book. I have tried a few of the salads and found them very delicious. I also loved Matt Bittman's More-vegetable-than-egg Frittata. Nothing really ground breaking of earth shattering diet wise. A lot of common sense but very enjoyable tidbits from the chefs.

    Parade Cover 4/29/12

    The cover of the parade section of this mornings Sunday paper showed Art Stone, Cat Cora, and Curtis Stone. I enjoyed the article so bought the book. The book has alot less recipes than I thought it would. The book is just ok.
