Park Avenue's Top Diet Doctor Reveals The Secrets To Losing Weight And Feeling Great!
Slim Down And Stay Thin The Socialite Way!
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 Nonnegotiables:
- Eat high-quality protein at every meal
- Say yes to complex carbohydrates
- Get lots of calcium from dairy products - it's essential for boosting 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 the best-quality, most nutrient-rich foods - such as smoked salmon, Greek yogurt, and moega-3 eggs - at every meal. And learn how to eat at fabulous restaurants - for business or pleasure - and keep losing weight.
- 1/2 pound green beans, cut into thirds and ends trimmed off
- 2 cups edamame, shelled
- 3 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut into halves
- 1 handful fresh basil, chopped
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- Dash of salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
In a steamer basket over lightly boiling water, cook the green beans and edamame until tender but crisp, approximately 5 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
Combine the scallions, tomatoes, basil, and cooked edamame and beans, tossing to mix.
In a small bowl, prepare a dressing with the vinegar, lime juice, honey, and mustard, whisking in the olive oil. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss to coat. This unusual combination of beans may be served chilled or at room temperature.
How the Rich Get Thin features wonderful recipes, including the low-cal dessert Le SociaLite, and a glimpse of the Park Avenue Mind-Set that allows Dr. Klauer's clients to stay lean and healthy for life.
