In The Petite Advantage Diet, weight-loss expert Jim Karas delivers a breakthrough lifestyle guide that’s already revolutionizing the world of health and fitness: the first book of its kind designed exclusively for women 5’4” and under.

Readers of his New York Times bestselling book The Business Plan for the Body can testify to how his advice has helped millions of women find their way to fitter, firmer, healthier, and happier lives. Now Jim Karas reveals a program designed for petite women, for whom The Belly Fat Cure can’t offer a real cure and 21 Pounds in 21 Days means losing too much too quickly: The Petite Advantage Diet.

Achieve that long, lean look—and eat the right foods to feel full fast—with the specialized diet for women 5'4" and under.

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!
