I used to be one of these so-called "movers and shakers" (I didn't feel like much of a mover or shaker, however!). I pulled many all-nighters, spent weeks in hotels, and most days looked forward to taking breaks from work to eat fabulous dinners delivered from great restaurants and billed to the "client." During that time I was persistently tired, certainly too busy and lethargic to work out, and I gained 10-15 pounds over the course of a year or so.
I wish I had had The Wall Street Diet then. One interesting aspect of this diet - and one that I would suggest might be the key to its success - is that it does not focus on exercise first. Instead, it asks you to analyze your eating habits to determine if you are a Controlled Eater (CE) or a Clean Plate Club (CPC) eater, and then it gives you practical tips for how to mazimize your eating plan to work with and not against your eating type and to reduce your calorie intake without too much pain. After all, losing weight is just math - 3,500 calories = 1 pound.
And that math is what Heather Bauer uses to focus first on diet and later on exercise. It can take an hour or two to burn off 500 calories, but 500 calories can be consumed in but a few moments.Read more ›
This is the first book that addresses them rather than the "eat 6 meals a day..blah blah.." I am a clean plate eater. I also eat things repetitively as a way to curb my bad habits.. Now she has not only given them a name and a plan but ways to manage my slip ups. Thank you Heather!
The Wall Street Diet guides professional people to think strategically about their eating and health, as they do about most other facets of their lives. And it provides the tools to do so without awkward excuses and obsessive focus. Bauer's prescription takes social and professional settings into account, allows its followers to drink wine or other beverages, includes cereals and yogurt and foods that would be prohibited on low-carb diets, and provides an amazing breadth of information about food choices in particular settings, like specific airports and restaurants.
I have lost ten pounds, and hope to lose more; but the beauty of the Wall Street Diet is that I have no sense of deprivation or boredom. I can do this indefinitely.
