National Nutrition Month 2013: Party Girl Diet author Aprilanne Hurley appears live on Good Day Sacramento with host Marianne McClary for the inside look at how to lose weight and keep it off without the deprivation and restrictions typical of fad diets. On the Party Girl Diet you can drink wine, eat chocolate, even eat meatballs and spaghetti in addition to a wide variety of delicious foods…and lose weight while you are having the time of your life.
In addition to revealing how to lose weight with a healthy, sustainable lifestyle outlined in The Party Girl Diet, Hurley emphasizes that the secret to weight maintenance is creating a balanced life by eating the right amount of food and getting the right amount of exercise. Hurley is also a huge supporter of eating certain natural foods containing probiotics and prebiotics to help aid digestion and promote a flat belly. Hurley recommends getting your probiotics and prebiotics from the foods you eat over taking an oral supplement.
The Good Day Sacramento Party Girl Diet segment below covers foods that aid in digestion, debuts Hurley’s Signature Fresh Flat-Belly Salsa Recipe, and demonstrates how to make The Party Girl Diet’s famous “Morning After Mocktail” as a natural and gentle detoxifying pick me up.
