From four-time New York Times
bestselling author Bethenny Frankel, the book that started it all: Naturally Thin
. Bethenny Frankel, talk show host, “Queen of Cocktails,” and “Mommy Mogul” has always had a passion for preparing and enjoying healthful, natural foods and sharing that love.
The New York Times bestseller Naturally Thin shows how anyone can banish their Heavy Habits, embrace Thin Thoughts, and enjoy satisfying meals, snacks, and drinks without the guilt. Armed with Bethenny’s rules, you will say:
-I know when I am really hungry
-When I’m really hungry, I look for high-volume, fiber-rich foods
-I can have any food I want
-I love the taste of real food
With more than thirty simple, delicious recipes (including her famous SkinnyGirl Margarita), a one-week program to jump-start readers on the Naturally Thin lifestyle, and warm, witty encouragement on every page, Frankel serves up a book for a healthier and thinner life.
"Best known from reality TV (The Real Housewives of New York City), 'natural foods chef' and entrepreneur Frankel wants unhappy dieters to know that everyone is 'naturally thin,' they've simply got to change some habits and learn 'to think like a naturally thin person.' The bulk of this self-help is devoted to ten rules, each outlined in a friendly but no-nonsense chapter. Rooted in Frankel's own struggles ('twenty years suffering through diet hell'), her rules include some familiar ideas smartly recast ('Your diet is a bank account' is a personal-finance gloss on 'you are what you eat') and each has a couple recipes attached (Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms). Much of her advice, however, boils down to eating less: other chapters look at moderation, mindful eating and portion size, with some helpful guides to measuring and eyeballing (though it's hard to see why 'Downsize Now!' and 'Cancel Your Membership in the Clean Plate Club' require separate chapters). A detailed 7-day starter plan fills out the volume. Fans of Frankel's televised adventures will likely be charmed by her strong, direct voice, and her brassy self-regard is nicely tempered by a we're-in-this-together camaraderie." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Bethenny Frankel's new book promises -- and delivers -- the ultimate dream of every overweight American: that you can be 'naturally thin' without starvation dieting, exercising like a maniac, taking drugs, or feeling hungry all the time." -- Ellen Kunes, Editor-in-Chief, Health magazine
With 25 simple, delicious recipes, a one-week program to jump start readers on the Naturally Thin lifestyle, and warm encouragement on every page, the star of "The Real Housewives of New York" and "Health" columnist serves up a book for a healthier and thinner lifestyle.
