Customer Reviews:

  • THIS BOOK WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU EAT FOREVER!
    I am still in shock at how incredible this book is. Christine takes a lifetime of nutritional education and breaks it down into a few, life-changing concepts that will permanently alter the way you look at food. This book is incredibly engaging & interesting. It feels as I was sitting down 1-on-1 with the top nutritionist in the country, as the author validated everything that ever worked for me, and explained why the ineffective techniques failed. All of a sudden everything made sense. I would recommend this book to anybody and everybody, as it will make you look better and feel better immediately. ...more info
  • Wow!
    I really liked this book, I am a slow reader and I read it in two weeks. Who thought nutrition could be interesting, I couldn't put it down. I'm telling everyone in my office about this book. Christine really explains how our bodies work with regards to our food and why our body (including our mood) reacts the way it does when we don't eat right. It was easy to read, easy to understand, interesting and a little funny, too. ...more info
  • Permission to eat pasta and potatoes
    I saw Christine on The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet and then picked up her book while I was at Barnes and Noble looking for something else. I was riveted right away. Christine's style is so familiar and engaging. I put it down but when I got home I kept thinking about some of the ideas I skimmed in the book and realized I would have to order it. I have always said that a life without bread, rice and pasta isn't worth living, and here is a nutritionist finally affirming my hunch that there is a balanced path that involves being healthy AND happy. I was a little offput by the idea of "skinny chicks" as though that ought to be the ultimate end goal of all women, but the push in the book is really about being a happy and healthy person that understands how to combine protein and carbohydrates in every meal to stabilize blood sugar. Her insights are so consistent with my experience, especially in terms of spiking (and plummeting) blood sugar resulting in headaches, mood swings, and generally feeling like I'm not at my best. I can't wait to try her approach. It makes so much sense....more info
  • If you want results - this is a must read!
    I cannot recommend this book enough! If you want to feel great, have lots of energy, clarity and focus, lose body fat, lose excess weight and finally make eating a life-style instead of another dreaded "diet" - this is the book for you!!! I had the amazing opportunity to work one-on-one with Ms. Avanti as one of her nutrition clients and it literally changed the way I looked at food and the way I was eating.

    I was a long-time sufferer of very frequent headaches and although in pretty good shape, I wanted to drop some body fat. My very first meeting with Christine was so eye-opening that I still remember it to this day. She explained to me that my headaches were caused by my erratic blood sugar levels throughout the day - spiking when I ate only carbs at a sitting (with no protein or fat) and plunging after waiting too long to eat again.

    I followed the program (which very quickly becomes a very easy way of life) and in no time, my headaches ceased, I lost excess weight and body fat and felt amazing!

    It's so simple - if you want to loose excess weight, feel great and have tons more energy - just buy this book. You will not be disappointed!!!...more info
  • This is the book to go beyond ever having to "diet" again. A Winner!
    The information in this book has literally changed my life... After trying unsuccessfully to lose any weight for three years, and not understanding why, Christine has unlocked the mystery. Christine explains how our body reacts to the food that we eat, unlocking the puzzle for me, once and for all. I have lost eleven lbs in three weeks. My glucose and liver enzyme levels have come down significantly. I have energy like I did when I was many years younger (my age is 66). For the first time in four years, I greet the morning with energy, rather than dragging myself out of bed. Energy, weight loss, and NEVER hungry, not ever, what more could one want. With the knowledge that Christine shares in Skinny Chicks Don`t Eat Salad, you have an easy to follow nutritional plan for a lifetime. I will never have to fight the scale, ever again. Thank you Christine for writing this book!...more info
  • Excellent

I highly recommend it if you are trying to drop a lot of weight or just get your eating in check and maintain....more info

  • Similar to Body For Life
    I like the book and I find Christine very likeable as well. I appreciate the fact that she is a nutritonist who had a weight problem and not some always skinny celebrity promoting a self help book. I have not tried her recipes yet but her approach to nutrtion is right on! However, if you have read or follow the Body For Life way of eating, this is the same program (only given by a nutrionist/woman's point of view). I completely agree that eating this way keeps bingeing at bay because you are satisfied. It is the way we should all be eating (most of time). However, calories do count (which Christine states). You will feel at your best following her (or Bill Phillip's Body For Life) advice. Your body will thank you and you Undoubtedly, will look better and feel better. ...more info
  • It's Helping Author with Multiple Sclerosis
    Many know that I am the author of the children's book Doris TheSaurus (www.DorisTheSaurus.com), but not many know that I have multiple sclerosis. I have decided to publicly disclose my affliction in order to help those with MS, as well as other inflammatory diseases. My major symptom is fatigue. I have tried just about every diet to help with this, but nothing has worked until Ms. Avanti's Skinny Chicks Don't Eat Salads eating plan. I call it an `eating plan' as it is not like dieting at all. In less than 24 hours, my fatigue was significantly reduced, and I lost 6 lbs in the first week. In addition, I am sleeping soundly without the aid of sleeping pills. I'm actually in the kitchen cooking again and loving every minute of it, too! The meals are delicious, I am always full, and my sugar cravings are gone. Every night, I go to bed thinking there is no way I'm going to lose weight as I'm enjoying the food so much; however, I get up in the morning to an ever-changing body, more weight loss, increased energy, and a feeling of overall happiness. I shake my head in astonishment. Christine has truly changed my life with her hard work and dedication to the health of others. Thanks Christine!

  • This book is a total winner!
    What attracted me to this book was that when I read the back cover, it sounded like it wasn't going to tout a gimmicky diet plan, but was going to give me what I wanted: the truth about nutrition and common sense guidance that would help me overcome the bad eating habits I have--the main one being my sugar addiction. I'm happy to report that it delivered all of that and more!

    One of the great things about the book is that it's full of up-to-date, well-researched information that completely clears up all of my confusion about carbs, fat, protein, sugar, etc. Finally, after reading it, I feel like I know what's fact and what's fiction. Plus, the advice in the book that I was the most hopeful about--what I needed to do to kick my sugar addiction--totally works! After putting the advice into practice, for the first time in years, I am not jonesing for sugar--I am a sugaraholic, so this is a huge deal. For me, overcoming my sugar cravings is half the battle!

    For a variety of reasons, I am now more serious than ever about making changes to achieve the weight, fitness and health levels that are right for me. This book has made me feel like I have all of the information, not to mention the motivation, to be successful. On top of giving me confidence that I can finally kick my sugar addiction, the book has waylaid another fear of mine--that I was going to have to go hungry and deprive myself in order to achieve my goals. The book showed me that I can eat AND lose weight and get fit! Again, I don't want to give too much away, but it's true what the title says, losing weight and becoming healthy isn't about starving, it's about eating. Any fitness/nutrition plan begins with getting into the right frame of mind--so many things about this book--the sugar addiction help, the info about how eating can be a strategy to weight loss, the myth-busing info, etc.--have gotten me into a really great frame of mind--I feel empowered.

    I also want to mention that I really enjoyed reading thid book. I didn't feel like I was being preached to or like I was reading a nutrition text book, it was like talking to a trusted friend who has been there, done that, knows what she's talking about and honestly wants me to succeed. Also, I love the meal plans and recipes. I can't wait to hear more from Christine--would love to see her get her own cooking/fitness show!!! ...more info
  • PC combo, good bye craving
    It's the PC Combo. Christine has taken the complexity out of losing weight and eating healthy. I now understand Blood Sugar Levels are ever changing in our bodies, driving us to react to cravings we cannot stop! Our Brain demands sugar and carbs to convert to the glucose it needs to function. Christine has given me the concept that I can easily follow. It's the PC combo. It's exciting to know if I follow this simple rule I will lose weight and maintain my desired weight once I achieve it. I have already lost 3 Lbs and Its only my first week. MY food cravings have stopped and I find it easier to apply my self control, I'm not grabbing for food any more. The PC Combo has eliminated my cravings. It really works and it's good for everyone Young and Old....more info
  • Maybe not for everyone
    The nutritional advice in this book is very sound. Maintaining blood sugar throughout the day is key to curbing cravings and mood swings. Being able to "indulge" in good carbs is a blessing in itself! However, beware that those 4-5 recommeded "meals" per day can be no more than 400 calories each, and always a near exact PC combo. While the eating plan in this book claims not to be a "diet," but a way of life instead, I find eating fat-free dairy products, egg whites, and plain yogurt pretty much "diet" fare. Also be prepared to exercise 45-60 minutes per day, too, on Christine's plan. I do appreciate the PC combo ideas and recipes in this book though - so far they've been tasty and satiating. Still, after a week of sticking with this plan, I've not lost an ounce of weight. ...more info
  • A wonderful diet book that isn't a diet.
    Avanti offers sound nutritional advice and commonsense ideas for changing the way you eat. This is the only "diet" book you need. She explains the insulin/blood sugar connection in easy to understand terms. She uses a "PC combo" meal plan (complex carbs and protein at every meal) and insists that we eat 4 to 5 times a day. Advice on supplements and recipes are also included. A nice section on basic strength and cardio training exercises is also clearly written and easy to understand with a section on beginner muscle toning at home.

  • Author should think before she speaks!
    Just saw the author on the "Today Show", and she made a statement to the effects that "carbs are ok for everyone and we need them". What she fails to address is many folks have eaten so many carbs that their bodies produce way too much insulin and stores way too many carbs as fat. When you reverse that process, your body has to then convert it's own fat for the same fuel it was getting from carbs before. I am not a proponent of no carbs either, but for a short time restricting them will jump start you to losing weight, and you can be sure it is fat you are losing, not muscle.

    My point is everyone must find something that works for them, but read carefully before making a decision. Bashing plans that work for others just makes me suspicious that all the author wants to do is sell books.

    My 2 cents!...more info
