City Style: The Local Diet Roundup

From the cops to the Cape we've got a diet rundown.


The Boston Police Diet (1972), by Dr. Sam S. Berman. Similar to the Atkins Diet, this beefy regimen is big on protein.

The Nantucket Diet (2005), by Jane Conway Caspe and Dr. Sol Jacobs. The secret to a fit and healthy Nantucket lifestyle, according to this weight–management program, lies in careful moderation (presumably of those G&Ts).

The Cape Cod Diet (2002), by Dr. Bill J. Grossman. This plan preaches carbs in the morning, and seafood round the clock.

The Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox (2007), by Roni DeLuz and James Hester. This all-liquid cleanse is designed to shed excess pounds and eliminate toxins.
