How the Rich Get Thin: Park Avenue's Top Diet Doctor Reveals the Secrets to Losing Weight and Feeling Great
Synopses & Reviews
One of New York’s top weight control doctors finally reveals the secrets to the enviably lean bodies leaving her Park Avenue offices. Based on science, and proved by the success of client after client, Dr. Jana Klauer’s diet is the key to how successful, rich and busy modern men and women get it off and keep it off.
Begin with Dr. Klauer’s Non-Negotiables:
--eat high-quality protein at every meal
--say yes to complex carbohydrates
--take in calcium, through dairy products; it’s essential to boost metabolism
--eliminate all processed food
--exercise every day
Then add simple mind-set changes such as Dr. Klauer’s Stop! Watch! method of craving control. Train yourself to eat best-quality, nutrient-rich foods—such as smoked salmon, Greek yogurt and Omega-3 eggs--at every meal. And learn how to eat at fabulous restaurants—for business or pleasure—and keep losing weight.
HOW THE RICH GET THIN features wonderful recipes—including the low-cal dessert Le Socialite—and a glimpse of the Park Avenue Mindset that allows Dr. Klauer’s clients to stay lean and healthy for life.
"Klauer's diet plan isn't revolutionary, but her approach is noteworthy. The author, a research fellow at St. Luke's — Roosevelt Hospital with a practice on Park Avenue, has a clientele comprising primarily successful businessmen and -women, 'ladies who lunch' and celebrities — people with the drive to do whatever it takes to succeed, in the boardroom, in social circles or on the gym floor. They understand and practice Klauer's 'nonnegotiables': daily exercise, the consumption of protein and calcium, the management of food cravings and the elimination of processed food. Although some readers won't be able to follow all of Klauer's advice — a personal trainer isn't within everyone's budget, nor can everyone choose the healthy Manhattan chain Better Burger over McDonald's — but there are many useful suggestions here. Try grilled shrimp over lentils with a cup of steamed broccoli for dinner, with a side of mineral water, and when traveling, beware the hotel minibar (the Park Avenue mindset creeps in with such lines as 'better groups, such as... the Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons, allow special meal requests that can be preordered'). Sticking to Klauer's strict regimen isn't easy, but neither is life on Park Avenue. Agent, Richard Curtis. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
