Skinny Bitch

Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin.

Review:

Hartford Courant ...incredibly informative and entertaining... Co-authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin provide tough-love talk mixed with facts and common sense... Freedman and Bamouin speak to the reader like a friend who isn't afraid to tell you what's on her mind. They back up their arguments by citing study after study and take the technical talk out of the discussion so as to make a more easily digested point. This is the first diet book I've ever read that has made me laugh out loud numerous times. That being said, since no one warned me, I'll let you in on a secret - the book will gross you out. In the same vein as Fast Food Nation, there are graphic descriptions of factory farming and unsanitary dairy farm practices. It was easy for me to put down Fast Food Nation but this book is so funny, I had to keep going. Almost immediately, I was one of the transformed. In fact, as soon as I got halfway through Chapter 4, The Dead, Rotting Decomposing Flesh Diet , I had to call and change my dinner plans because I decided to go vegan on the spot. West VA University's The Daily Athenaeum, 6/8/10 a cynical, foul-mouthed read with only good intentions that could get you into your best bikini shape for this pool season...The book's conversational tone makes for an interesting and entertaining read - not simply just dos and don'ts of dieting and exercise like most weight-loss plan guides.

Long description

Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin. With such blunt advice as, Soda is liquid Satan and You are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin, it's a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant. Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations. Behind all the attitude, however, there's solid guidance. Skinny Bitch espouses a healthful lifestyle that promotes whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and encourages women to get excited about feeling clean and pure and energized.

Loved it!

Only buy this book if you want to become a vegetarian/vegan and are prepared to be told the truth about how the 'evil' food industry is slowly killing us all.

Disappointing

I expected a book on the psychology of overcoming bad eating habits, but found a book promoting a vegan lifestyle as the solution to all ills. The language was unnecessarily crass and the recommended products are not locally available.
