List of Ingredients
Tips and information on healthy eating for weight loss and health by Bethenny Frankel.
The Naturally Thin book is more about education than dieting. There is a one-week start plan with recipes included in the book, but this is nowhere near enough time to learn new eating and exercise habits. Frankel attempts to teach the dieter means of getting thin naturally so life does not feel like a constant series of diets with intermittent failures in between. The information is sound and nutritionally accurate, so the dieter does not have to worry about fad diet choices and irregular eating plans.
In the recipe section, Frankel creates light, whole food meals that the dieter can enjoy. Portion sizes are controlled, so the recipes are ideal for weight loss. There is even a recipe for Frankel’s famous Skinny Margarita for the dieter who loves a drink now and then.
