Sought after New York nutritionist, Marissa Lippert, says, “Yes, you can!” A self-professed foodie, Lippert shows readers how to cheat the right way- by balancing workouts with nights out, anticipating stress eating and special occasions, and boozing with brains-and be happier, slimmer, and healthier than ever before. With practical tips on how to shop, cook, and find the best of everything- including local and organic foods-on a budget, The Cheater’s Diet is the perfect program for the millions of women who want to lose weight, but don’t want to change their lifestyle to do it.
About The Cheater’s Diet
Everybody cheats. On diets, that is. Marissa Lippert, twice voted one of New York’s best nutritionists, has seen her clients cheat and give up, again and again-so she created an eight-week weight loss program that starts with cheating. As her thousands of success stories show, it’s a matter of accepting the cheats, building them into the week, and moving on. In eight weeks, Lippert’s clients lose up to twenty pounds, and with her new book everyone else can, too.
Part I of The Cheater’s Diet helps readers map out their social calendar, gym time, food shopping time, and cooking time. Each week has a food plan and fun recipes, most of which take less than twenty minutes to prepare, as well as an illustrative “cheating” lesson or two.
Part II is the sneaky part, in which Lippert shows when, where, and how to cheat. There are two kinds of cheating: accidental and purposeful. For the former, Lippert shows readers how to make up for too much fat, sugar, meat, or booze. And for the latter, she takes a proactive approach, with topics like “Extra Baggage: How to Compensate for Travel Food, Fast Food, and Eating Out”
Throughout, readers will learn how to eat healthfully and well. The Cheater’s Diet is a sassy, motivating, and effective plan for those who want to have their chocolate and drink wine, too.
