Finally, a diet (oh, shucks, I said that 4-letter word) that just might be what you’re looking for. One that’s programmable – or not. One you can follow to the T or use flexibility. It’s up to you.
Here’s an excerpt from the book from the author, Caroline Apovian (my great ex-boss). “I have news for you. Losing weight shouldn’t make you suffer. Slimming down—when you do it the right way with a bounty of nutritious foods—should enhance your health and well-being and make you feel better, not worse! Hearing what other diets were doing to my patients infuriated me. Seeing that so many of them were not only not losing weight with existing diet plans but also harming their health, feeling deprived, and feeling depressed, I knew I had to do something about it.”
Right! Food should taste good and lend a healthy dose of vibrancy, energy, spontaneity. It shouldn’t take all day. But it should require thoughtful preparation with an easeful flow.
This plan is based on a day of pampering yourself with smoothies and rest and the other days of the week abundantly full of foods that fill you and give you energy. I know the recipes that I created (over 100 of them – including over 30 smoothies recipes) will inspire you!
Look for this in book stores in April 2013. Video coming soon! Here’s a sneak preview recipe!
The sweetness of ripe banana and mango, the creaminess of coconut milk – you’ll think you’re on a beach or the tropics. Protein powder will keep you full until the sun sets.

- 1 mango
- 1/2 cup light coconut milk
- 1 cup water or 2 cups if not using coconut milk

Mix well in a heavy duty blender of Vita-Mix. Then, sit back, sip and enjoy.
