    1. This book is just amazing It has a fantastic cover and is rife with fabulous photos and unsound health advice It also caused me to meet a lovely, insane flight attendant who said he used to teach at the San Francisco Ballet.A bit sad, as my crazy madwoman s tour of ballet books written by about NYCB dancers is coming to a close, with the exception of Edward Gorey s book, The Lavender Leotard, which features Edward Gorey drawings of Balanchine choreography Obviously must get hands on this immedia [...]

    2. My teacher shes like 60 65 now used to dance ballet when she was younger She never made it to pointe, but she found this book a while back in goodwill The recipes, she said, are really useful to her diet Well, I came to my new school about a month ago, and she loaned me this book this morning I was done with it by 3rd period I have her 1st It has so many useful facts along with, dieting menus, 7 dieting sins that chapter was pretty fun , and some recipes that sound really good It has stuff like [...]

    3. Yes, this book is a little dated, but it introduces in broad strokes a few ideas that can be useful to people who are trying to lose weight while keeping an athletic lifestyle When I was in the Army I recommended this book to another soldier who needed to make weight but still have enough energy for all the PT we were doing There wasn t much else out there on how to lose weight and still be athletic at a professional level He might ve hidden the book taped to the underside of one of his drawers, [...]

    4. While I m definitely not in need of a diet plan, or the complete revamp of lifestyle that this book outlines, it was still an interesting read I liked to see the opinions of world famous dancers who were, back then, simply budding stars on the stage when it came to living The still, black and white photographs hidden away in the pages and sometimes annoyingly interrupting sentences were absolutely stunning and gorgeous.

    5. Dancers take meticulous care of all their equipment because training and performance depend on it Of course, the most essential piece of equipment, the body, needs the most care of all, and that is what this book is about how to take care of the world s greatest machine.

    6. Really liked this book It has a very balanced and sensible approach to dieting to be slender and graceful, while also giving insights from people actually in the industry It straddles perfectly the bridge between dieting and making yourself a lifestyle according to how you react to food.

    7. totally remember this book i got it when it came out simply because allegra kent wrote it, but yeah, i think it s pretty dated i have held on to it after all these years, though maybe because i love the cover.

    8. Not as delightfully insane as I had hoped Sound advice, outdated numbers Nice oldschool ballet photographs.

    9. This is pretty outdated, but has some good suggestions Some of the low cal recipes are pretty awesome.
