The Supermodel Diet is from Kelly Killoren Bensimon, a former model and star of the reality television program, “The Real Housewives of New York”. I Can Make You Hot! was inspired by her personal experiences with dieting.
When Bensimon turned 40 she realized she had to quickly figure out what to eat to keep her body lean and beautiful. In this book she shares her diet and nutrition discoveries and the tips and tricks that worked for her.
The Supermodel Diet can help you lose 3-5 pounds by following a strict diet for three days. You need to consume small portion sizes and eliminate oil, sugar, nuts, salt, caffeine and alcohol.
The rest of the week you should eat a well-balanced diet that includes starchy carbohydrates. You are advised to eat your carbs at breakfast and lunch because your body needs less energy in the evening.
Says Kelly Killoren Bensimon,
“Sunday should be a day of rest where you let your body relax and just eat what you want, because if you’re starving yourself or if you’re on some kind of diet all the time, you need a little bit of a break.”
You are advised to think about food shopping the same way you would if you were shopping for clothes. You would probably have a budget.
So you need to consider if you have enough calories to “spend” on a particular food. You should only eat what you can afford.
The book includes a variety of bonus tips such as:
Bensimon believes that bland food makes you fat because it causes overeating. When your food is delicious you are satisfied with less because you eat more slowly and savor each bite.
She shares sixty of her favorite recipes including:
Green juice, chicken, shrimp, tuna, lean beef, eggs, cheese, yogurt, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, lentils, spinach, celery, edamame, snow peas, cherry tomatoes, salad greens, blueberries, banana, oranges, strawberries, almonds, kale chips, jelly beans, olives, coffee, beer, wine, Diet Coke, lemon juice, truffle oil.
2 cups of Kelly Green Juice (blended mint, parsley, broccoli, kale, lime juice, lemon juice and water)
Chicken and vegetables with brown rice
Shrimp with spinach and lemon juice
Glass of water with lemon juice
Daily exercise is essential on this program. Bensimon recommends doing yoga, Pilates, walking or cycling for at least 20 minutes.
I Can Make You Hot!: The Supermodel Diet retails at $24.99.
I Can Make You Hot!: The Supermodel Diet involves 3 days of calorie restriction with a normal balanced diet the rest of the week.
You might lose weight quickly on this plan simply due to the low calorie intake. However, this way of eating is probably not sustainable as a long-term approach to healthy weight management.
