Lower Calorie Alternatives To Summer’s Most Delectable Treats


NEW YORK – July 5, 2011 – Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien indulges in summer’s most delicious treats, Hungry Girl style, with less calories and less guilt but never sacrificing flavor, when season two premieres on Food Network August 7th at 10am ET/PT with 16 all new episodes.  There’s no challenge this New York Times Bestselling author and creator of the renowned Hungry Girl newsletter can’t take on – from overcoming potential date night disaster dishes to what to order when you want to scream for ice cream.  All 30-minute episodes begin with an eating situation that might otherwise result in an over-the-top calorie fest and Hungry Girl proves there’s no craving she can’t satisfy with creative, lower calorie options.


“There’s no better time than the hottest month of the year to show my fans how they can indulge in their favorite foods of all time and still look and feel their best this summer,” says Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien.   “The show allows me to bring my newsletter to life and take the cameras with me as I search for lower calorie treasures at the grocery store, whip up treats in my kitchen and order off the menu at my favorite restaurants.”

It’s hard to imagine that those with a taste for cheeseburgers and hot dogs could enjoy sinking their teeth into these iconic summer favorites for under 200 calories, but that’s just what Hungry Girl presents in the premiere episode “Under 200.”  Summer also means the hottest movies hit theaters, so Hungry Girl saves the day once again by sharing secrets to navigating the concession stand.  Later in the season, fans will fall in love with her Date Night recipes like Chicken Amore and will be giddy over Hungry Girl’s Chinese Food selection of Veggie So Low Mein.  Fans get a special treat when iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove stops by to make iHungry Spaghetti Tacos, inspired by the Nickelodeon show.
