Review

Why Marie Antoinette s diet was the 5:2 of its day. --(Eve McGowan, The Mail on Sunday, 8 February 2014)

Please say bonjour to The Marie Antoinette Diet.... [it] is very a la mode. Wheeler also introduces the reader to the magical, mystery soup that the queen ate for dinner every evening. --(Maggie Lang, NY Mag)

The diet really worked for me. I didn t feel deprived and I ve still been able to eat out. The idea that you can eat cake while on a diet sounds insane. But the author has recognised that most of us trip up on diets because we crave something sweet. (Samantha Brick, The Sunday Mirror Magazine)

There are good philosophical underpinnings to some of this. (Emma Brockes, theguardian.com)

Really quite a fabulous book ...absolutely jam-packed with information. (Thom Watson, manface.co.uk)

Although fad diets come and go...some of Wheeler s claims (supported by Dr Mabel Blades, a registered dietician and nutritionist) actually seem useful and easily attainable. (Erin Cunningham, The Daily Beast).

Too good to be true? Not according to Professor Michele Carruba, Director of the Centre for Study of Obesity in Milan, who explains how this diet is very similar [in its principles] to the Mediterranean Diet. (La Repubblica)

Wheeler s claims actually seem useful and easily attainable... (dietusa.org)

The Marie Antoinette Diet does not promote a series of rules for losing weight so much as advocate a series of lifestyle changes intended to improve your health. (Susan Scutti, MedicalDaily.com)

By following this relatively easy diet plan, you ll be looking and feeling like your best Marie Antoinette slimmed-down self. ( RealStyleNetwork.com)

We have discovered a way to eat cake and still lose weight. (Marie Claire)

Let Them Eat Cake featured in Vogue Japan, October 2014

Having read this book, I have had to rethink my day. The Marie Antoinette Diet is clear, easy to read and features lots of ideas for changes you can make without too much hassle. (Jacqueline Brown, frenchvillagediaries.com)

Hate counting calories? Love cake? This diet s for you. Wheeler examines the eating habits of the stylish and skinny 18th-century queen and distills them into routines that can be adapted for modern-day life. (Audrey Fine, totalbeauty.com)

Why The Marie Antoinette Diet Might Actually Work. (Cosmopolitan)

...something quite new and paradoxical. Wheeler s research has led her to conclude that Marie Antoinette knew what we are taught today by dieticians and cardiologists. (financialexpress.com)

The Marie Antoinette Diet works on the basis that to be a successful slimmer you have to control your cravings, so by allowing yourself a little of what you fancy as part of your plan you will be less likely to ditch the diet and overindulge. (Emma Jones, www.healthista.com)

A diet that lets you eat cake? Now we re listening. Wheeler s approach is refreshing. (Katie Jones, MyDaily.com)

Definitely sounds manageable possibly even enjoyable! (Chatelaine)
