Overview

Manhattan has more four-star restaurants than any other island in the world, not to mention bagel shops and pizzerias on almost every block. It has expensive gyms, and even its crowded yoga classes can be stressful—yet Manhattan women still remain stunningly svelte. How do they do it?

In The Manhattan Diet, you'll learn how to lose weight, eat great, and live stylishly the way New Yorkers do—and enjoy the same results wherever you call home. You'll discover what real-life Manhattan women really think about dieting and how they shop for food, cook, order in restaurants, eat, cheat, and splurge. From the city's world-class restaurants to luxury townhouses to its famously tiny apartment kitchens, from exclusive parties to fitness clubs, Manhattan insider Eileen Daspin takes you behind the scenes to reveal the food secrets of a fascinating range of Manhattan women, including celebrities, bankers, stay-at-home moms, lawyers, and media executives.

Drawing on the stories and food diaries of New Yorkers as well as wisdom from top nutritionists and celebrity trainers, The Manhattan Diet offers a detailed program of tips and advice for weight-loss success along with a twenty-eight-day eating plan that will fit into your personal lifestyle. You'll also find amazingly delicious recipes, including dishes from top Manhattan-based chefs Tom Colicchio, Eric Ripert, Mario Batali, Marcus Samuelsson, and Lidia Bastianich.

With The Manhattan Diet, you can lose weight and eat well while living your own fabulous life. So enjoy!
