Dr. Fischer’s Park Avenue Diet is a comprehensive program that addresses the seven principal components of image, how we appear and how we behave, the reflection of our lifestyle choices that the outside world judges us by. Permanent lifestyle change in The Park Avenue Diet is accomplished with the help of seven top experts in the seven uniquely interconnected components of image:  weight, physique, hair, skin, clothing, self- confidence and interpersonal skills.

The experts are make-up artist Laura Geller, hair stylist Joel Warren, New York socialite Tinsley Mortimer, fashion consultant Helene Hellsten, world renowned psychologist Dr. Stanley Krippner, nutritionist, Chef Marie-Annick Courtier, and fitness trainer Bernadette Penotti.

Dr. Fischer’s Park Avenue Diet plan will help you look and feel your best, lose weight and attract the people and opportunities you desire. Dr. Stuart Fischer brings the secrets of The Park Avenue Diet to everyone.  The experts supply advice which can be incorporated easily without the hassle of expensive foods, exercise machines, gyms or other inconvenient roadblocks between your present self and the new you.

How you look on the outside can affect how you feel on the inside–and vice versa.  The pathway to a happier, healthier lifestyle encompasses physical, psychological, and behavioral changes that reinforce each other.  The Park Avenue Diet is a revolutionary 6-week program that teaches you to completely remake your appearance, your health, and your life.
