Serving up heaping helpings of nutrition knowledge designed to fit a busy schedule and a sense of taste, the dish is here to proclaim that you can have your chocolate torte and eat it, too! Forget starve-yourself regimens and diet gimmicks that just don't work; instead join Carolyn O'Neil and Denise Webb as they invite you to wine and dine, entertain and travel, and feel fabulous. As registered dietitians, they know their stuff, but call them the Dish Divas as they put the fun into eating right and feeling great. In these pages they dish out smart tips on how to make healthy eating stylish, and how to be trim by eating more, not less (yes, it can be done!). There are no food police on patrol here, just some real-life advice from two nutrition experts, who talk you through food challenges with wit and wisdom. Eating out?

Need to get your rear in gear? From power walking to karate kicks, they'll help you find the moves that appeal to you. They've even dished up plenty of fresh advice on beauty and fashion. To show you how to maximize flavor with flair, there are loads of easy-to-cook recipes from top chefs, dubbed Gourmet Gurus. And to answer that oft asked question How do stylish women stay fit and still live the high life?, Carolyn and Denise gather the secrets that work for their Hip & Healthy Heroines. A marvelous mix of nutrition advice, culinary wisdom, and chic insight, The Dish is here to help you create your own hip and healthy lifestyle. I liked this book alot! I read a little everyday and def learned a lot. First off, it's really easy to read and also fun. They have recipes in there. They had some really great charts for like how to get fiber in your diet and what drinks have the most calories and how long food lasts in the fridge and freezer. Everything was relatable and the things they gave were manageable. I learned a lot of things, especially since I'm a nerd and wrote down some of the stuff. It was also a cool idea how they put what book you should read if you wanted to learn more about a certain topic, and websites to go to to find out more information. I think it's awesome. and hopefully will help me out in my journey to be healthy and lose weight!
