About the Program
Naturally Thin by Bethenny Frankel is a diet program that focuses on natural and nutritious foods. A television celebrity from The Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Frankel has had her own struggles with weight loss over the years and now wants to share her success story and plan with others so they too can enjoy successful weight loss.
She is not only a television personality, but a chef as well, so she offers her expertise and knowledge about food and health in her book.
Frankel teaches you how to recognize your triggers when it comes to eating. She also helps you to understand that food fuels not only your physical health, but your emotional health as well, so the food choices you make each day really do make a difference.
It’s her belief that if you change the way you think, you’ll change the way you eat, and you’ll lose weight and keep it off. She will even give you a peek into her food journal so you can see what she actually eats to stay thin and healthy.
Foods You Can Eat
Naturally Thin encourages you to eat several smaller meals a day that contain higher amounts of fiber and more vegetables. Frankel wants you to eat real food, food that is nourishing to your body and food that will give you high energy to get through your day.
No foods are technically off limits, so you can still eat the foods you love, but she does want you to focus on smarter food choices overall each day. She will tell you to increase your vegetable intake, lower your fruit intake, and eat moderate protein amounts.
Frankel doesn’t leave you hanging out there trying to figure out which foods to eat and how to incorporate them into your daily diet. In Naturally Thin, she provides several nutritious, low-calorie recipes you can enjoy, including recipes for cookies!
This program encourages you to include daily exercise in your schedule so you feel better and are able to maintain your weight loss. She’s a big proponent of yoga, especially for the mental exercises that help her retrain her mind in regards to how she views food.
The book, Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting can be purchased for around $10.00.
