About the Book
Millions of viewers first met Kelly Bensimon through the weekly drama of Bravoâ€™s hit television show, The Real Housewives of New York. A former model, writer, editor, equestrian and mother to two young daughters, Bensimon maintains an enormously hectic lifestyle, both on-screen and off. Yet, despite such a packed schedule of professional and personal obligations, she somehow manages to always look amazing â€“ stylish and beautiful but, even more importantly, happy and healthy.
This isnâ€™t by sheer coincidence or through simple genetic luck â€“ after years of being in professions where her career was dependent on physical beauty, Kelly has figured out some essential secrets to keeping herself in top shape without resorting to unhealthy or unnatural means. I Can Make You Hot! is an easy-to-follow and highly effective primer that breaks down the sum of Kellyâ€™s knowledge and experience, providing energizing health tips and a delicious eating plan to promote optimum nutrition and all-around good fitness â€“ or, as she puts it, â€śeating well, sleeping well, feeling good and having fun.â€ť The plan is uncomplicated and accessible, and aims to show women of all ages how they can maintain a sexy, lean, strong, but realistic body by following a few key steps (culled from both Kellyâ€™s own experiences and through experts she consulted for the book).
During her years as a model and onscreen personality, Kelly has been through the wringer of extreme eating habits, from starving herself as a model to overindulging in the wrong things on the New York party scene. I Can Make You Hot! steers readers away from these types of extremes, and focuses on tailoring proper nutrition and fitness activities around any lifestyle â€“ whether that means a harried professional life or an active social calendar involving lots of late nights out on the town. In fact, there are only three basic rules in Kellyâ€™s plan, but they are iron-clad:
- Exercise every day.Â No excuses.
- Make healthy food choices and eat well six days a week.
- Make Sunday your â€śfundayâ€ť and eat whatever you want.Â If youâ€™ve been following steps 1 and 2, your body can definitely handle a day of freedom.
Around those three rules, Kelly constructs a 7-day plan that readers can use as a weekly guide to manage their diets and keep themselves on the path to good health. In addition to the 7-day plan, Kelly also teaches readers how to train themselves NOT to skip meals (a major problem for those used to crash dieting and other extreme means of weight loss), offers some ingenious fashion tips to help accentuate a newly hot body and provides nearly 60 healthy, fun and delicious recipes that will help jumpstart the process to a newer, better, hotter self.
I Can Make You Hot! is the perfect handbook for those caught in vicious, unhealthy, restrictive diet cycles. Kellyâ€™s plan will teach you how to eat properly and without guilt, overcome certain food myths (carbs are not bad!) and learn to be the happiest, sexiest version of yourself â€“ something it took her years to understand, but something readers can learn in an instant.
I Can Make You Hot! is now available at Books & Books.
