Princeton University graduate Daphne Oz — daughter of Dr. Mehmet Oz — has followed in her father’s footsteps by penning her own national bestseller, The Dorm Room Diet, which details how freshman students (and anyone, really) can avoid the bulge while ensuring their happiness and health in an eco-friendly manner. She asserts that realistic expectations are essential to following any diet successfully, and that with her plan, people can regain control of a healthy lifestyle by abandoning fad diets once-and-for-all in favor of embracing positive, lifelong habits.
Dispensing food for thought is clearly in her blood. While a proponent of vegetarianism, the soon-to-be-married author isn’t in-your-face about it, instead preferring to “introduce readers to flavors, textures, and substitutes they might never have considered before” since “knowledge and a little nudge is all people need to change old habits.”
Oz grew up dining on a satisfying, ever-changing “variety of fish, tofu, vegetables, pastas, rice, legumes, and so on” that — thanks to the right combination of “spices and flavors” – never left her pining away for a “meat-n-potatoes meal”. She says that with all of the diverse veggie offerings available to consumers today – including Gardein and her favorite, Fakin Bacon – anyone can commit to dining on lean, flavorful and cruelty-free cuisine without feeling deprived.
