If you liked French Women Don't Get Fat and Japanese Women Don't Get Fat or Old, this is the American version of said books.

Personally the authors push for eating at home, cooking your food yourself and using good ingredients is something more Americans would do well to follow. The book goes on to say that processed food is crap

This book will change your fat content. The ideas and concepts work, you just have to find a way to adapt them to your surroundings.

I don't know what's worse - the premise of a diet on a marginal elite subsection of (crazy vapid neurotic shallow and disordered) NYC women as representative of the diets of all manhattan women or the fact that so much of the internal monologues of these women0 rang true with me. Hardly a helpful diet book, but a fascinating (as in "can't-look-away-from-this-train-wreck") read.

As if I didn't know that before: you always are what you eat! Funny and enlightening.
