Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Tailored for 13- to 19-year-old girls (sorry, guys) The Diet for Teenagers Only dishes up a sensible balance of recipes, weight loss strategies, and straight talk about food. Writing partners Carrie Wiatt (Eating by Design) and Barbara Schroeder convey all the messages nutrition-wise moms want their daughters to hear--in an informed, best-friend voice their teens will actually listen to.

Trust builds as readers discover "Things They Never Told You;" like how puberty naturally increases a girl’s body fat, diet soda promotes weight gain, and carbohydrates aren’t all bad. No mention of ideal weight spoils the fun, here; rather, Wiatt and Schroeder utilize an age-appropriate BMI (Body Mass Index) to help judge who’s truly overweight and who simply needs "a better body image reality check." Doodled stars and hearts further enliven the book’s chummy tone, but never upstage the important stuff: food portion guides; nutrients for healthy bodies; calorie requirements based on BMI ranges; low-fat cooking techniques and recipes; weekly menus and shopping strategies for weight loss; and discussions about how a teen’s emotions often drive her eating cycle. Q & A sections slip between meatier chapters, allowing tough issues like fasting, cravings, and eating disorders to be addressed with empathy and pragmatism. Surprisingly helpful are the restaurant and vending machine guidelines, featuring side-by-side substitution lists, titled "Eat This" and "Not That". Brimming with loving encouragement and the wisdom of gals who have been there, The Diet for Teenagers Only sends a clear message to girls: form good habits now.--Liane Thomas

I was so excited to receive this book and when I finally got it I didn't wait one second to read it.
Justine
I have made a special effort to make sure she has the things she needs to succeed at this eating plan, and I have made many of the recipes from the book.
Pam D'Aliesio
This book teaches you to eat healthy for life and most importantly it helps you understand portion sizes.

This book blew me away, i saw it in USA Today and got it from you guys...and after reading it just feelso much smarter. I've been on lots of diets, like Atkins, South Beach and never really liked being on them--this book is so smart, because it deals with portion control, so I feel like I'm not deprived. I just eat smaller amounts and I love getting all the information about what's happening to me and why need to take care of my body. Plus the book doesn't sound like a lecture. yeah! this is a good one...

I'm using my Dad's email to write and let you know this is a great book. I'm 13 and was wondering if I should lose some weight. This book has helped me feel better about myself. I also have a plan now and know how to eat better.

thanks

Although I am not a teenager I found this book very helpful (I did have to go on line to calculate my bmi, however). I didn't want to go on a fad diet, and I wanted to read something in an interesting format. This book teaches you to eat healthy for life and most importantly it helps you understand portion sizes. Unlike so many fad diets, it gives you the knowledge you need to make wise choices in the real world of food and drink (what to do when faced w/a plate of cookies?).

The format is easy to read and understand. Again, I am not a teenager, but a young Mom. It has helped me already lose 1/3 of my goal post-baby weight. It teaches you to eat healthy, eat healthy amounts, and have a healthy lifestyle (excercise, etc). I love the fact that it has several pages that give actual sized, color examples of the serving size of pizza, muffin, fruit, mac and cheese, etc. I have definitly used the pizza cut out several times!

I bought both "The Diet for Teenagers Only" and "Toning for Teens" by Joyce Vedral about 10 days ago, and I have already noticed a difference. Combining the healthy eating plan with the exercise program is already affecting me. I feel stronger (but a little sore) and I have more energy. Also, I have lost about 5 pounds! So I would call that a good start, if you do the math 10 days/5 pounds = 1/2 pound per day. The Pom tea recipe in this book tastes pretty good to me... and makes great popsicles! If it's not sweet enough for you, add orange juice or apple juice (both unfiltered with no sugar added). Also, the diet is pretty easy to stick to, make sure to keep a food diary because it does help! Even on days where I overate, I was still only eating about 1700 calories. These are two very smartly written books and they can help you on you goal to a healthy lifestyle!

P.S. A great way to make raw or cooked vegetables taste better without adding fat or even many calories is to dip them in vinegar-balsamic, white wine, distilled white, or many of the flavored vinegars on the market. Also, drink those 6 glasses a water per day. You will need to go to the bathroom more, but you feel... lubricated? I don't know. It just feels nice.

I'm 14 and I got this book after finding out that diets like Weight Watchers and South Beach are not for teens. I read the whole thing on a sick day from school and it taught me how to find good portions are and how to read a nutritian lable on foods. It also taught me how to loose weight safe and with helpful tips for exercise and diet. This book is the best thing for teenagers looking to loose weight or just learn how to eat healthier! I have only been on it for 2 weeks and have already lost 7 lbs!

I bought this book for my 15 year old that was trying to get fit and eat healthier. She read the whole book in 1 night and she actually taught me some stuff. She has been following the book for almost 3 weeks now and I love it. She has learned about portion control and how many of each food group she should consume a day and it's about being fit!!
It's a lifestyle. I could tell her stuff until I was blue in the face but this book was key for us. Highly recommend it!

I'm 13, almost 14, and my mom bought me this book because I was concerned about my health and body image. I'm not overweight, but I know how important it is to eat healthy and maintain an ideal weight for my age. Unlike most dieting books I've read, this book is low pressure and actually makes me feel good about myself. Just knowing that I am a girl and I deserve to look and feel beautiful. It's easy to understand and to follow, and also easy to stick to. I love how exercise is encouraged along with making healthy decisions. Along with health information, this book also features easy recipes and dieting plans from experienced nutritionists. Pretty sweet. I'd definitely recommend it.

This is the best diet book ever for teens!! It's great because it really stresses not to use "fad diets" or resort to starving yourself, binging and purging, etc. It's also catered to teen girls only, with great sections like "eat this, not that" for the lunch room, vending machines, restaurants, and so on. The only problem is that the diet is REALLY strict, although it, luckily, does not cut a food group. Really helpful are the food diary pages, the special tricks, and the page of monthly measurements. I'm so motivated now to lose my 10 lbs.!! I haven't started the diet yet, but I am tomorrow! I can't wait to look awesome for bikini season!!
