The Skinny: How To Fit Into Your Little Black Dress Forever
What's life on The Skinny like?
The first thing is that you don't take anything out of your diet. You eat more fruits and vegetables. This gets you fuller because these foods have more water and more nutrients. We encourage people to eat slowly and pay attention to how full you are. When you eat slowly, you ask yourself "Are you enjoying your food?" If you've finished your food before you finish the question, you've eaten too fast. Eat slowly, and you'll eat less of everything else. Add fruits and vegetables. Next think about how to change your after-dinner snack from four cookies to two cookies. Give yourself a couple of weeks and change your habits slowly. You have to give yourself time.
How would you describe The Skinny recipes?
The Skinny recipes all have fruits and veggies at their center. They have butter and olive oil. Some have bacon. You can play with the amounts of fat so that they're all flavorful. The recipes are easy to make. Melissa had me in mind when she created all of them. With twins, I can only be in the kitchen a half hour. These recipes have a huge flavor bang for a little bitty buck. All of the ingredients are accessible. These are really good, flavorful foods. Protein is more of a garnish. We don't use any food substitutes. We just use good, fresh foods.
What are the most important elements of weight loss?
Enjoy your food. If you start depriving yourself, you're just going to gorge yourself and feel panicked that you're not going to be able to have your favorite food for a long time. With The Skinny, you don't have to worry about not being able to have another hamburger around the corner because there will be. Pay attention to what you want. Eat slowly. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Eat better portions.
