Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

It's quite possible to have your cake and eat it too, argues dietitian-nutritionist Blum in this bubbly, vivacious approach to living well the healthy way. Avoiding dietary absolutes and encouraging readers to make gradual changes in their eating habits rather than drastic ones (which are often hard to keep up), Blum's sensible guide is sure to resonate with young women. She makes compelling arguments for choosing organic foods-going so far as to list the top 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables-and extols the virtues of grass-fed meat and dairy. An informative chapter detailing alcohol's specific effects on women (including calorie counts for a long list of beers and cocktails) enable readers to make the most of their nights out without paying for it later. Troubleshooting suggestions offer relief from the symptoms of everything from hangovers and herpes to smoking cessation and premenstrual discomfort. Rounded out with chapters on dietary supplements and depression, as well as a Q&A for frequently asked queries-"What kind of prepared foods (i.e., frozen dinners) are actually good for me?"-Blum's guidebook complete guide to women's health is an encouraging, smart and sisterly volume that deserves a place alongside other trusted go-to resources.

Review

"Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous is filled with sound nutritional advice on what to eat and drink and how to repair the damage when our good intentions slip. A delightful book, as entertaining as it is educational." Nicholas Perricone, MD

"You've heard people talk about the 'feel-good book of the year'? Well, Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous is the 'feel gorgeous book of the year'!" Karen Salmansohn, author of Hot Mama and How to Be Happy, Dammit

"For a more compassionate, flexible and trustworthy guide, check out Eat, Drink and Be Gorgeous by registered dietician (and go-to nutrician expert) Esther Blum. Not only is Eat, Drink fun and funny, it's actually encouraging, sensible and written with the average (change-averse, willpower-deficient, sweet-toothed) person in mind." —Publishers Weekly, December 10, 2007

I love this book. I'm so sick of looking at diet books that tell me I have to cut out everything enjoyable if I want to look good. The problem with those books are you go on the diet, restrict yourself from all the food you love, lose weight (probably because you're starving yourself), go off the diet, gain the weight back. This book is different. First of all, it's not a diet book. If you want to lose 10 lbs. in 10 days, this book isn't for you. But if you want to learn how to eat healthy so you can have the body you want without going on another diet, then I suggest you check it out. There are great tips on what to eat and how to prepare it, how to drink the occasional cocktail or glass of wine without starving yourself the next day, and what supplements are all about. This book really seems like something you can follow for the rest of your life to be healthy and happy.

As alluded to by other reviewers, this book lacks the type of hard diet information most people looking to lose weight need. If you want truly outstanding nutritional advice that isn't talked about in mainstream books, I recommend The Ultimate Diet Guide - For Busy Women! No Starving, No Food Restrictions, No Gym Workouts Required!

This book was a fun read. So if entertainment is what you want, get this. But for me personally, I was quite disappointed with the quality of information.

And Esther Blum shows you how.

This fantastic guide gives you helpful and healthful advice on how to balance our diets without hurting ourselves or giving ourselves guilt every time we eat a piece of toast. It's fun, informative and an absolute delight to read. You feel as though Ms. Blum is in your living room (or sitting next to you on a stool during cocktail hour) and talking to you like a friend who knows her way around nutrition.

Thank you Ms. Blum for alleviating my guilt. Now bring me a glass of Cabernet and some Flax Seed Oil!

Format: Hardcover
I finished this book cover-to-cover and it was fabulous! It is not a diet book- it will not tell you how to lose 50 lbs and it's not intended to. It's about enjoying life and food in moderation so you can look and feel your best. Esther teaches us how to nurture our bodies with healthy food and gives great suggestions for nurturing our spirits as well. Perhaps if more people followed the advice in this book we'd see a decline in obesity as people developed a healthy, sensible relationship with food. An enjoyable, informative read- I'm sure my copy will soon become well-worn from constantly "referencing." I've also recommended it to every woman I know.

This book is a great read, it gets to the heart of most women's issues and gives great tools to help them deal with issues in a realistic way. I have used many of these tools in my practice and it's wonderful to have someone put it together in this way.

Despite being paired with "Skinny Bitch" on the Amazon site, this book is much nicer in tone and much more helpful. It's fun and entertaining to read, in addition to offering advice that's hard to come by but very effective!
