How to lose weight and feel great--Manhattan-style

New York women are surrounded by more four-star restaurants than any other city on the planet, not to mention a pizzeria on every block and a donut cart on every corner. They enjoy it all and yet somehow they manage to look so damn good. What's their secret? They have a whole lot of them, it turns out: and now women (and men) everywhere can learn to lose weight, eat, and live the way New Yorkers do--and enjoy the same results. The Manhattan Diet reveals how real-life New York women think about dieting and how they eat, shop for food, cook, order in restaurants--even how they splurge and remain in gorgeous, fit condition. Drawing on the stories of real Manhattan women plus wisdom from top nutritionists, The Manhattan Diet offers a detailed weight-loss program and 28-day eating plan. There are also recipes from the city's most celebrated chefs. This diet has glamour, chocolate, and waist-trimming tips. What else would you expect from the most fabulous women in the world?
