Sarah Jessica Parker’s Hamptons Diet Plan

While most of us think of the Hamptons as the beach playground of the rich and famous, it is also the name of a diet that several celebrities have tried, including Sarah Jessica Parker. She and the entire cast of Sex & The City tries this diet, not to mention Kate Hudson, who also tried it after her baby.

The Hamptons diet is a low carb diet that’s considered a variation of both the Mediterranean and Atkins diet, with a little bit of the South Beach diet thrown in.  It was created by Dr. Fred Prescatore, the medical director of the Atkins Center.
