Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
02/17/2014
Diet guru Lillien (Hungry Girl 200 to the Max!) has amassed a wide-ranging collection of tips and recipes to support this 1,300-calorie-a-day plan (which can be adapted to 1,500 calories). Lillien promises that the text has been “blessed” by a registered dietitian, and claims that readers won’t be hungry on the plan; followers may lose 10–20 lbs. in the four-week jump start, and can stay on the plan longer if they wish to lose more. The approach features large portions, concentrating on proteins, fruits, and vegetables, and lower intake of starchy carbs and unhealthy fats. Frozen, canned, or pre-packaged items are suggested for busy readers, and convenience is a high priority, with liquid egg substitutes and other shortcuts discussed. Though exercise is encouraged, it’s not required. The author also includes tips for dining out (for example, check out the menu online in advance to avoid high-calorie traps). Hungry Girl fans and readers seeking to drop pounds in a hurry without deprivation will appreciate Lillien’s practical, user-friendly approach and uncomplicated recipes. Agent: Neeti Madan, Sterling Lord Literistic. (Mar.)

    Hungry Chick Vs. Hungry Girl? For months, all I heard about was

    Hungry Chick Vs. Hungry Girl? For months, all I heard about was how much weight my sister-in-law lost from my family and how great she looked. So today I went to BN to get the book. I ended up buying the Hungry Chick Dieting Solution and the Hungry Girl Diet when I saw it too. I am so glad that I bought this book. The Hungry Girl Diet, I found, is a 4-week program. There is a separate chapter for each of the 4 weeks, and within each week there is a separate page for every day of the week (i.e., Week 1 - Day 1, Week 1 - Day 2, Week 1 – Day 3, etc.). Every single day has its own menu plan broken down into Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Snacks. It is very structured, but there is also a lot of flexibility within that structure. For each meal, you can choose from 3 different menu choices (breakfast on Week 1, Day 1, for example, offers your choice of Mega Fruit ‘n Yogurt Bowl, Egg Scramble & Bun, or Growing Oatmeal B-fast). For every menu item, there is a reference to the page number in the book where you can find the recipe for that item. There are over 60 recipes in this book. When the book is opened to a menu plan for a given day, the menu plan is on the right-hand page, and the left-hand page has helpful hints, time-saving shortcuts, money-saving tips, ideas for food swaps, etc. There are even little reminders throughout about when to drink your water. But, only The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution was able to tell me how much water I should be drinking. I already started following what the Hungry Chick recommended for that. In the end, I am seeing this little mix up as a win-win. I will use The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution for its great advice and the Hungry Girl Diet for its great recipes.

    I am a fan so maybe my opinion about Lisa will be slightly biase

    I am a fan so maybe my opinion about Lisa will be slightly biased. But, the truth is this book did nothing for me. I felt like it was a little too much a little too late. It is March and now Lisa wants to jump in with this diet. Why not just write another cookbook? If she wanted to help her legions of fans, she would have released this book in January when we were really trying to get motivated to lose weight. If anything, I think that she is trying to capitalize off the success of that other book. I have heard nothing but good things about it. I also found out the book came out over a year ago. I gave up on dieting like this myself after the Shred Diet, the Super Shred Diet, the Doctor's book and even Rocco's book did nothing for me. I just cut back on what and how much I eat and I exercise more. But, I am curious about that water thing that somebody else posed about. Sorry Lisa, I love you, but I put the book back after I read it for a few minutes in the store. If I want to eat with less calories, I will buy one of your cookbooks, not a pretend dieting book.

    Great buy.

    I'm 75 year old. The older you get the harder it is to lose weight. Well this diet is working for me and I can't eat everything they tell me to eat. I've had to cut down on portion sizes but it gives you a feeling of fullness. I eat more now than I did when I was dieting on my own. I preordered it on Nook so I received it on the first day available. I read it that night and started the diet the next day. So far I've lost 6 lbs slowly. No overnight huge drop in weight but gradually and consistently.

    The Hungry Girl Diet is truly for hungry girls! I actually foun

    The Hungry Girl Diet is truly for hungry girls! I actually found it difficult, impossible at times, to eat ALL of the food allotted each day! Now that is a great “diet”!
    While a lot of the information seems obvious (don’t drink your calories, eat a LOT of veggies, etc.), there are some incredible tricks that make it seem like you are cheating. An example is the fettuccine alfredo made primarily from Laughing Cow cheese wedges, a dish that clocks in around 100 calories yet tastes like it’s easily as rich and creamy as the real deal for four times the calories. For this recipe alone, I’ll be eternally grateful!
    The plan and recipes are simple and incredibly delicious. Best of all, even making some adjustments to the plan (I have an occasional glass of wine, I use whole eggs instead of egg whites) I have already lost five pounds in the first week. If you want to eat good, easy to prepare food, yet still lose weight, grab this book right now!

    The problem with diets in general is that they're restrictive. Sadly, that's the problem with the Hungry Girl Diet, it's another restrictive diet. I hate saying that because I usually love Hungry Girl (Lisa). But alas, I cannot recommend this book.

    There's just so much white knuckling going on, that you will lose weight, but you're more likely to gain it right back because it's not about making a lifestyle change. I was really disappointed.

    There are some really good recipes, though. Also, you can still follow some of this while doing some other type of weight loss. So, there's the upside. If you were to buy the book for those reasons and those reasons alone, only then would I recommend it.

    Great diet, but sugar concern.

    Big Portions, but noticed quite abit of sugar. I am concerned about the amount of sugar in Greek yogurt that is included in many of the recipes and breakfast. One yogurt serving can contain 23grams or more of sugar. 7grams equals one teaspoon. Do the math....sugar does not help any diet!!

    This diet delivers!  I have struggled all my life with weight is

    This diet delivers!  I have struggled all my life with weight issues, but this diet is keeping me VERY full while losing weight  (8 pounds in 2 1/2 weeks).  Yes, the first week was tough, but  after that, it was much easier.  She knows exactly what she is doing because I love food, esp. sweets, and I have stuck with the diet plan.  Furthermore, it has weaned me of my trigger foods and helped me understand what I was doing wrong previously.  Most importantly, I followed tips for dining out and did so twice a week  while remaining very close to the diet plan with no setbacks.  Also, the app (tho' not perfect) helps you keep track of exactly what you eat.  Can this diet be made part of one's permanent  eating lifestyle?  Yes, I believe so if I continue to use her low calorie /high quantity approach and recipes.  Only reason I did not give this book a 5-star is because she failed to indicate the time  involved in shopping, prepping, and making meals.  The only way to be successful, to me,  is to cook ahead in larger batches, so the meals will be ready  to eat ,and that requires a lot of time and  refrigerator room that a person with a family won't have.

    Uhhh! Buy any other book other than this one. Otherwise, don't waste your time or money on this book. This isn't a diet book, it is another person who is already thin pretending to understand what people who battle their weight are going through. She doesn't have a clue.
