More Hungry Girl Approved Products!
Though she freely admits she's neither a nutritionist
nor a doctor, more than 400,000 subscribers rely on
author Lillien's "Hungry Girl" e-newsletter for healthy eating tips
When Lisa Lillien lost about 30 pounds seven years ago, she did it by giving up "everything good."
But she knew she couldn't maintain such a strict diet. So instead she worked to control her weight through smaller adjustments that were more likely to last.
Nothing is off-limits for the Hungry Girl, from tuna melts to twice-baked potatoes, from brownies to banana bread. Lillien believes there's a smart way to indulge in just about anything.
Her way is neither extreme nor based on denial. She uses the Weight Watchers POINTS values as a guide, and some of her recipes are codeveloped with Weight Watchers.
"It's just about finding guilt-free versions of the foods that you love and finding a way to incorporate things like pizza and onion rings and ice cream on a regular basis and still fit into your pants," Lillien says.
Since the start, Lillien has offered her seal of approval to numerous products she says are filling, but pack few calories, including one of her favorites, Tofu Shirataki noodles.
