Summertime 2010 Book Review Series: ‘The Dorm Room Diet’ By Daphne Oz

Filed under: Books,Review — @ August 19, 2010

It’s an annual ritual engaged in by hundreds of thousands of teenagers from coast to coast who have chosen to embark on the next step of their educational journey–COLLEGE! Just as the dog days of summer begin to wind down and the changing of the seasons begins to take place, enthusiastic young skulls full of mush pack up their belongings, leave mom and dad in the house they grew up in, and move into that bastion of independence known as a dorm room. Anyone who’s ever spent time in a college dormitory knows all the unique challenges that await you from oddball roommates, strange smells and noises coming from nearby rooms, and the free entertainment that can happen late at night–it’s quite the adventure. And when it comes to trying to be “healthy,” you can just about forget about it! They don’t call the weight gain that happens to first-year college students the “Freshman 15″ for nothing. But Daphne Oz wanted to buck that trend by offering up some advice that helped her take off 10 pounds in her freshman year (she struggled with her weight in high school) which she wrote about in her bestselling book The Dorm Room Diet: The 10-Step Program for Creating a Healthy Lifestyle Plan That Really Works.
