Publisher Comments:

A no-nonsense, tough-love guide for savvy girls who want to stop eating crap and start looking fabulous! Yes! This is the New York Times bestselling book Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham has been reading and now you can too!

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."

Review:

"[T]here's more solid information about health and nutrition in Skinny Bitch than in most diet and health books." Bitch magazine

Review:

"They tell it like it is, and without delicacy." Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Don't hate them — be them. The authors of Skinny Bitch offer women a no-holds-barred approach to being thin and fabulous." Metro

Synopsis:

A funny foul-mouthed ode to adopting a vegan diet ("The New York Times Book Review"), the latest work from the authors of the bestselling Skinny Bitch series offers no-nonsense weight-loss advice.

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

Synopsis:

Youve heard it all before: Calorie counting is the most effective way to lose weight. Youve heard it because its true, and youre still fat because you ignored it. Lucky for you, Martin Cizmar has come up with the least awful diet plan of all time. If youre going to make a change, you might as well do it his way. The cool way. TheChubsterway. The Chubster plan revolves around calorie counting and enjoyable "undercover" exercise (urban hiking and gum chewing: solid calorie burning potential on their own; even better together). Martin gives readers the tools to become self-sufficient weight-loss machines capable of functioning in any environment. From frozen dinners and drive-thru menus to ethnic eating and microbrews, he offers suggestions for the responsible choice, steers readers clear of the real diet-killers and dispels some long-held untruths. That Stella youre holding? Its more caloric than Guinness. Dieting is never fun, but withChubster, losing weight can be. Youre welcome.

This book was amazing! Tons of information, and even spurred me on my own quest to become vegan and research the health benefits. All I have found over & over again, is that these girls have done their homework, and are giving excellent advice. ANYONE WHO SAYS THIS BOOK IS FOR ANOREXICS OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T GET IT! Do your own research and figure it out yourself. You've obviously been too clouded by the media to understand what "eating healthy" actually is. My eyes have been opened as to how much our government affects what we deem healthy, and what we do not. I adapted the "Skinny Bitch" plan over a month ago, and I am already down 10 pounds, and I've never felt better. And the websites they list in the back have tons of helpful information as well! DEFINITELY check out this book -- it has truly changed my life! :)
