Item description for Little Black Dress Diet by Michael Van Straten...
We've all been there. Maybe there is a week, maybe only a day or two until the big event. It might be a date with a (very) nice guy from accounting, a class reunion, or a glitzy cocktail party.

Author Michael van Straten shows the optimal ways to lose the excess weight no matter how little time you have! Choose from 10-day, 3-day, or 24-hour plans, depending on your deadline (read: level of desperation). Gentle nudging throughout will help shed bad habits as you get more svelte. Also included is the Black Tie Diet for him.

Reviews - What do customers think about Little Black Dress Diet?

I would rather plan ahead and loose the weight gradually as this ensures actual fatloss rather than water.
A way of eating that actually works Jun 14, 2005
I bought this book with a little bit of scepticism, since I am very opposed to crash diets. But since this is not a crash diet but a way to get started on a very healthy way of eating forever and lose excess weight, I tried the 10 day diet. I had put on close to 10 pounds over the winter and wanted to try to get it off before my vacation. After the 10 days it had actually all come off, and I was able to keep up my energy level during the whole time. The first three days are the toughest, as the author mentions, but after that, you feel great. There are a lot of great recipes included, and you can continue to cook this way for your whole family while you are on the diet, just by adding proteins or starches. What I like about this way of eating is that is puts an emphasis on fresh, organic foods, and allows for moderate portions of lean meats, carbs, glass of wine, etc. This book is highly recommended.

I originally bought this book out of utter desperation, right before going home to confront my family over christmas. I followed the little black dress diet (one of about 7 in the book) fairly strictly for the full ten days, and low and behold, a full 10 pounds were whisked off my figure. On top of that, I had increased energy, slept better, and actually continued to lose weight for some time after the ten day duration of the diet. The meals prescribed in the book are relatively large-portioned and filling (most of the time)...they're also flexible. I particularly like how this diet is not necessarily low-carb or low-fat (things I've tried and haven't been able to stick to), but emphasizes eating whole and organic foods, while still allowing for the odd treat here and there.
