The Dude Diet: Slimmed Down Versions of Your Favorite Foods

Dudes. They're so well intentioned when it comes to healthy eating, even as they fail epically in execution... inhaling a “green salad” topped with chicken fingers and a vat of ranch dressing or ordering an Italian sub on a low-carb wrap (that makes it healthy, right?).

After moving in with her boyfriend and becoming privy to his disturbing eating habits, Serena Wolf grew increasingly concerned about her dude’s long-term health (and waistline).

As a labor of love, she set to work creating slimmed down versions of his favorite foods and posting them on her blog.

Now, in THE DUDE DIET: Clean(ish) Food for People Who Like to Eat Dirty, Serena shares more than 125 recipes that prove that meals made with nutrient-dense whole foods can elicit the same excitement and satisfaction associated with deep dish pizza or Chinese take-out.

Listen in as Serena joins Dr. Friedman to discuss the dude way of eating and why it might be the best fit for you.
