Dr Oz: The Hungry Girl Recipes
Tired of being hungry all the time while trying to lose weight? (Yeah, me too!) Doctor Oz is joined by the author of “The Hungry Girl” books (such as Hungry Girl 1-2-3: The Easiest, Most Delicious, Guilt-Free Recipes on the Planet), Lisa Lillien, to show you how to get more bang for your buck by eating more food and still losing weight. Dr Oz previously did a show with Lillien where she made the Hungry Girl Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe. With The Hungry Girl’s Diet, there is no deprivation, only more food…and who doesn’t love that?
Dr Oz: Lisa Lillien
Lisa Lillien, a self-proclaimed foodie, has figured out how to diet without going hungry. She isn’t a chef or a dietician. She scoured supermarkets, researched the Internet and worked with a team of scientists to find out how to eat more and lose weight. One million people follow her e-mails for her secrets, and her books are flying off the shelves. Lisa demonstrates that you can still love food and lose weight.
Dr Oz: Hungry Girl Diet Plan
Molly, a Hungry Girl follower, lost 107 lbs by using Lisa’s tips such as dipping and not pouring your salad dressing because it will save you calories. Christina, another Hungry Girl follower, lost 100 lbs using Lisa’s recipes and Katy lost 50 lbs by following The Hungry Girl guidelines. Lisa Lillien told Dr Oz that one important key is to find swaps for the foods that you crave and want. Lisa told Doctor Oz that she thought about food all day long. (Who doesn’t?) Everday, she planned and wrote down what she ate.
