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.
