Karl Lagerfeld is a fashion designer. He is currently the chief executive of design at the House of Chanel.
The world of diets is a strange one, and Lagerfeld added his contribution in 2002. After a massive weight loss of 92 pounds he decided to write his own diet book: The Karl Lagerfeld Diet.
He has managed to keep the weight off: “I eat next to nothing,” he says. (from the New Yorker)
Lagerfeld's approach to weight loss is cuttingly superficial:
“If you attach no importance to weight problems, if not being able to wear new, trendy small-sized clothes does not cause you any regret, this book is not for you,”
But then, what kind of nutritional advice can you expect from a fashion designer?
Lagerfeld: On diet
Low fat, low-carb, low-calorie (lots of protein supplements).
Phase I: 800-900 calories per day. Phase II: 1000-1200 calories per day. Phase III: 1200-1600 calories per day.
