To get there though, you’ll need a guide, and who better to get it from than internationally renowned and vastly experienced fitness model Jennifer Nicole Lee. Will her book help you lose weight and take a leap into the fitness modeling world? This review aims to find out.
What is it?
The Jennifer Nicole Lee Fitness Model Diet is more than just a weight loss book. It offers a glimpse inside the world of fitness modeling, shares the secret beauty routines and product fitness models use and provides a solid helping of motivation and positive energy.
So, much more than just a diet, this book aims to be a complete reference to the resources you’ll need to become a fitness model.
Here is the table of contents of the book:
- Why you must believe to become a fitness model

Jennifer has a very motivational style of writing. The book is heavily focused on appearance, as you would expect from a book aimed at models or prospective models. Three are a lot of pictures of JNL in the book. Some may find these motivational, while others may wish for a little more content and a little less eye candy.
JNL presents some simple exercises you can do to get your body into shape. On the diet side, you get menus and recipes to follow in order to lose weight. You should use these in conjunction with the exercise plan for best results. The recipes and eating plan are good and not difficult to execute. The exercises are a fairly basic but effective collection for beginners.
In the chapter “Your External Beauty Guide”, Lee also touches on other aspects of the business of being a fitness model, including tanning, teeth whitening, taking care of stretch marks, skin care, hair and makeup. You’ll find some valuable information, and you don’t have to buy everything JNL recommends in this section. You can choose your own cheaper alternatives while still getting good results. Aspiring models will appreciate this inside look into a professional fitness model’s beauty routine.
What do buyers think?
The JNL Fitness Model Diet gets mixed reviews, with the most favorable reviews coming from people who specifically want to become fitness models. Here are extracts from some reviews that we have come across online:
“Great buy-I’ve gotten South Beach diet, Eat Clean diet, which both left me bored and unmotivated. But with Jennifer Nicole Lee’s Fitness Model Diet Book, I actually got to spend time with this best selling author, as her voice just beams through her words, and I felt as is she was coaching me one on one.” Sammy Yummo (Amazon.com)
“I have to say that I plan on following the diet and exercise plan, because it is simple, and doable. In fact, she could have left out everything else but the chapters on rest, diet, and exercise, and the book would have been perfect.” Daphni Brooks (Amazon.com)
“There are helpful diet and training tips, and she really has an amazing body, but the product referrals are just overwhelming.” Julieta (Amazon.com)
A few things worth mentioning
The majority of the book centers on JNL’s personal experiences in the modeling industry. This should appeal to people who are serious about becoming a fitness model, but members of the general public who just want a decent diet plan may be frustrated by having to wade through all the industry related information in the book.
Also, there are a lot of photos and self-promotion in the book, so don’t expect 200 pages jam-packed with information. Most buyers agree that the diet and exercise side of the book is good and JNL provides some great recipes and eating plans. If a solid introduction to diet and exercise is what you’re after, you’ll get some good information.
If you want in-depth diet and exercise secrets, you should probably pass on this book. There are really only two or three chapters on dieting and exercise, while the rest of the book relates directly to the fitness model industry.
As an alternative, we can recommend This Is Why You’re Fat (And How to Get Thin Forever) as an excellent diet plan for the average person.
Where to buy the book
You can purchase the book at any bookstore, but we recommend Amazon.com for quick and hassle-free service and the best price.
The Jennifer Nicole Lee Fitness Model Diet is not for everyone. It does, however, provide a useful look into the inner workings and beauty considerations of fitness models, and in that respect will be valuable for anyone serious about doing fitness modeling. The eating plans and recipes are useful, as are the exercise plans. The simplicty is good as it helps you to just get going instead of overthinking everything, like some more complex diet books do. We can recommend this book for prospective fitness models, as it was written from that perspective.
If, however, you are not into fitness modeling and are looking for more detailed and varied diet plans, there are better books to choose from. As mentioned before, we can highly recommend This Is Why You’re Fat (And How to Get Thin Forever).
