Editorial Reviews

Review

“Whether I'm traveling on assignment, getting ready for a black tie event, or just plain want to look ‘urban skinny,’ Danielle tells me how to do it. Choose wine or dessert, eat protein and fat, and never consume sodium the day before you squeeze into a gown. Above all, count calories! Danielle will literally circle her choices for you on a takeout menu. Read this book and it will change your caloric life.” —Alina Cho, National Correspondent, CNN

“I went on the Urban Skinny program twelve years ago to lose ten pounds, and not only did I lose the weight, but I’ve managed to keep it off ever since—in spite of living in New York City, traveling sometimes more than half the month, and eating out more than 90% of the time. Moreover, the program’s balanced, nonrestrictive, logical approach to food and diet has enabled me to form and maintain a healthy relationship with food for the first time in my life. Urban Skinny has kept me both skinny and sane throughout all of life’s challenges, hurdles, and celebrations.” —Amy Wigler, Vice President of Marketing, Logo by MTV Networks

 

“As a runway and print model who has appeared across the globe, I am wary of the notion that only industry insiders understand the pressures of staying ‘fit.’ Danielle immediately understood my goals and put me at ease. Indeed, I often found myself laughing; for she was funny even while being firm (but fair) when creating my personalized plan. We cut out foods that would deter from the svelte look models are supposed to have. We targeted belly fat. I went on to walk the New York Fashion Week Campaign and even with Naomi Campbell. If you take weight and health seriously, it is a must to be guided by two sides of a coin—a trainer and a certified nutritionist. I found this in Danielle, whose holistic approach encompasses physical, mental, and emotional dimensions.” —Anjhula Singh Bais, model, Elite Model Management and Models One

 

“I have worked with Danielle for eleven months, during which time I have lost almost fifty pounds. As I approach my fiftieth birthday, I am reinventing my life as a musical theatre producer. Working with Danielle I have also reinvented my approach to eating. Under Danielle’s tutelage I have learned to integrate delicious, healthy food and drink into my fast–paced life of networking and socializing without ever feeling deprived. With her new book, everyone can experience the wonder that is Danielle!” –Gwyn Osnos, co lead producer of the forthcoming Broadway musical Wanda’s World

 

“There are expectations in my profession to look the best you can at all times. Danielle taught me to change my diet to fit my life, not my life to fit my diet. The results were astonishing!  I lost weight I didn’t even know I had!”—Justin Bruening, actor

From the Back Cover

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After trying to lose weight for so many years, trying every fad diet and reading every "diet" book, I was losing hope. After reading Urban Skinny I have an entirely new outlook on weight loss. This is a "lifestyle" book, not a "diet" book and it has completely changed my life. This book teaches you that you that you can still eat the foods you love and lose weight. I definitely recommend this book for people that have struggled with their weight and are tired of being told "no, you can't eat that". I have learned that its all about portion control so I can still eat my favorite mint chocolate chip ice cream!!!

I read this book and it was a breath of fresh air! I needed to lose weight, but I was so sick of reading "diet" books that were filled with the words "no", "can't" etc... I didn't want to stop eating my favorite foods or drinking my favorite glass of wine, and this book showed me how to do it! I don't have those "binge" days anymore because I've learned my limits and thanks to this book, I educated myself on portion control, eating in moderation and resuming exercise in my life to pull everything together. This book is a must if you want to change your life on eating better, and not just one month before a beach vacation!

Format: Paperback
I would strongly recommend this book over a lot of "diet books" which claim to be new innovative ways to lose weight. This book suggests life style changes for permanent weight loss and weight maintenance. The author's suggestions are not drastic and don't require expensive special foods or equipment. The tips are eminently doable and my husband and I find them easy to get used to. We lost over 30 lbs. each following the tips in this book and we don't feel like we are on a "diet". Excellent book - highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
I love diet books, even though I hate diets. Fortunately, this isn't a diet book or a diet. It's more of a fabulous guide that helps you stop wailing, "Why can't I drop these last few pounds?" and gets you back into your fave skinny jeans, pronto. Easy-to-follow meal plans and (ahem) rather enlightening calorie counts for foods I love are helping me do this without losing my mind and eating my own hand out of desperate hunger. Krikorian's writing style makes this a fun, breezy read, and Schupp clearly knows that girls just wanna have food as well as fun. After a year of recipe-testing for my book (Cherries in Winter: My Family's Recipe for Hope in Hard Times), this is exactly what I needed. Thanks, ladies!
