From the Back Cover
They make clothes for “Petites” so why not a specialized diet plan? You’re smaller, you’re more delicate, you’re 5'4" or under, yet you’re expected to follow a diet plan for the taller girls. What’s wrong with that?
“A lot,” says Jim Karas, author of the number one New York Times bestseller The Business Plan for the Body. For over twenty years, Karas has helped the Petites. He makes them longer (without the rack). He makes them leaner (without starving) and he makes them feel more confident and sexier than they have ever felt before. Why? Because he knows how to get results specifically for you . . . a “Petite”. . . and get them fast.
“I understand you,” says Karas. “I know you are watching your taller friends and colleagues eat more than you do but stay slim.” Fact: you do have to eat less, because a Petite needs only about 1,600 calories a day (compared to 2,500 calories for a taller woman) and is therefore naturally more prone to gain weight.
But you are looking at the glass only as half empty. Thee glass, according to Karas, is really half full. Being a Petite has huge advantages such as:
- You can work out more effectively than a taller woman because your muscle-to-height ratio is greater; translation—better opportunity to boost your metabolism
- Your center of gravity is lower, and therefore you are less likely to injure yourself when you’re working out, and
- You can create that sexy hour-glass figure that taller women can’t achieve. Think Penelope Cruz (5’4”) and Dolly Parton (5’0”). Both are gorgeous members of “The Petites,” whose bodies rock.
Karas has worked with women of all heights and sizes for more than twenty years, and has perfected strategies that bring effective and lasting fat loss for Petites. Based on solid, recent research, coupled with his passion for creating concrete solutions, Karas has crafted a program specially designed to help you create a longer, leaner, sexier body. Petites, you’re gonna love it!See all Product Description

Low carb is hard for me to sustain, I just love the bread too much.
This plan is based on cycling 1100 calorie days with 1600 calorie days, and a strength training workout using trx type straps. The meal plans are balanced high quality proteins, low saturated fats, and complex carbs.
Here's the kicker...I counted the calories...sort of. I substituted my own interval training workout. I drank wine, ate pretty much whatever I wanted...as long as it was within the calorie guidelines...and I lost weight anyway!
The information provided is easy to understand, and the plan is easy to follow. Give this book a try

The only complaint that I have is that I don't like exercising with the resistance bands. I know they are supposed to be so easy and convenient, etc. Read morePublished on Nov. 12 2013 by Maple
Some different points of view, but nothing startling. There are many books that use catch phrases such as "petite" to sell, but few that achieve their goal.Published on Oct. 14 2013 by elfungo
This is bad, i put the book aside very fast it was not worth the money and even less my time.Published on Aug. 8 2013 by Patricia R. Leclerc
An interesting concept, as a petite person (5'2) I wanted to see what this book had to offer. I think it's an average diet book with not much new information. Read morePublished on May 19 2012 by Under Ether
Though there were a few new points provided by Karas, most of what was written was just a regurgitation of what's been said before, only adding "petite" every other sentence. Read morePublished on April 16 2012 by Emersome
