Smart Chefs Stay Slim
Lessons in Eating and Living From America's Best Chefs
How do you stay thin with a job like that? This is the question many food loving mortals often pose to celebrity chefs. Clearly they indulge in their love of food, so how is it that they can enjoy the tantalizing dishes we see them create and still look fit, fabulous, and photo-shoot- ready?
Like so many Americans, celebrity chefs also face the strain of balancing a good diet with a busy lifestyle full of temptation. Now chefs like Michelle Bernstein, Eric Ripert, Tom Colicchio, Rick Bayless, Jacques Torres, and Cat Cora share their own stories on how you can keep your love for food-without foregoing a healthy life.

"Smart Chefs Stay Slim is at once approachable, realistic and mouth-watering."
"A breezy, entertaining read sharing lessons, tips and recipes from some of America's best-known chefs in answer to the compelling question, 'How do chefs stay slim?' It's filled with enjoyable anecdotes that promise to help fuel your efforts to do the same."
-Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg, James Beard Award-winning authors of the bestseller The Flavor Bible and The Food Lover's Guide to Wine
"Sure, chefs are delighted to talk about childhood obesity, and a healthier America, but getting this personal? Sharing private details about their own struggles and frustrations with weight? It's very rare. I love this book because of the great practical tips. But I really love this book because it humanizes so many legendary chefs, who aren't above taking inventory of their own bodies -- as emotional as that can be -- just like the rest of us."
-Alyssa Shelasky, author of Apron Anxiety and editor at New York Magazine's Grub Street
