how-to-eat-like-a-hot-chickHow to Eat Like a Hot Chick: Eat What You Love, Love How You Feel by Jodi Lipper and Cerina Vincent, is a book that encourages women to appreciate their bodies and celebrate life.

The authors wrote this book after realizing that they were wasting far too much time dieting, counting calories and worrying that every forbidden indulgence would make them fat.

They recognized that they were actually feeling insecure and giving in to low self-esteem.

How to Eat Like a Hot Chick shares how to eat healthy without experiencing deprivation. From loving your curves to enjoying what you are eating, How to Eat Like a Hot Chick is not about dieting but rather about changing your attitude and regaining confidence so that you can unleash the hot chick within.

Eat Like a Hot Chick Diet Basics

The authors define a Hot Chick as a confident, empowered and passionate woman and say that Hot Chicks come in all shapes and sizes. Their goal is to help women realize that they are already hot and to stop obsessing about food.

They share what they have learned along the way in regard to the foods that made them feel great about themselves, and which ones left them feeling bloated, grumpy, and unsatisfied.

Some helpful tips are included that reveal the sneaky hidden calories in many common foods and strategies are offered to help you manage your calorie intake in social situations.

The concept of Volumetrics is explained which basically involves eating foods that contain a lot of fiber and water but very little calories, such as fresh vegetables and fruits. The authors are big advocates of spinach and offer a wide variety of ways to prepare it. They recommend that you eat a pound of spinach for lunch and/ or dinner.

You don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods, just learn to prioritize by eating less of the foods you don’t mind going without.
