Hungry Girl Diet

Lisa Lillien. St. Martin’s/Griffin, $26.99 (304p) ISBN 978-0-312-67679-7
Diet guru Lillien (Hungry Girl 200 to the Max!) has amassed a wide-ranging collection of tips and recipes to support this 1,300-calorie-a-day plan (which can be adapted to 1,500 calories). Lillien promises that the text has been “blessed” by a registered dietitian, and claims that readers won’t be hungry on the plan; followers may lose 10–20 lbs. in the four-week jump start, and can stay on the plan longer if they wish to lose more. The approach features large portions, concentrating on proteins, fruits, and vegetables, and lower intake of starchy carbs and unhealthy fats. Frozen, canned, or pre-packaged items are suggested for busy readers, and convenience is a high priority, with liquid egg substitutes and other shortcuts discussed. Though exercise is encouraged, it’s not required. The author also includes tips for dining out (for example, check out the menu online in advance to avoid high-calorie traps). Hungry Girl fans and readers seeking to drop pounds in a hurry without deprivation will appreciate Lillien’s practical, user-friendly approach and uncomplicated recipes.
