Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Let them eat cake! From one of the most popular blogs on the internet comes an innovative, even fun way to diet. Carrots 'N' Cake is all about eating your carrots…and savoring your cupcake, too.

  For some people, losing weight means restrictive dieting, obsessive calorie counting, and constant hunger. Not Tina Haupert! She learned that it didn't have to be that way. Tina shows how to drop the pounds and keep them off by adopting eating habits that are healthy, balanced, and above all, livable. She serves up easy-to-follow fitness routines, food tips, and her most popular feature: cookie Friday.

 
TINA TELLS HOW TO:

Hang with your friends on a Friday night without packing on the alcohol pounds

Navigate buffet tables at parties

Handle the holidays painlessly.

And more!

Review:

"Blogger Haupert's approach to healthy living is a fascinating slow-motion train wreck. Eerily similar in tone and style to The Onion's fictional columnist Jean Teasdale, Haupert welcomes readers into her life, dishing out homey advice and recounting details both big (her marriage) and small (cereal eating habits), along with long-winded anecdotes on Christmas shopping, the gym ('Things I hate about strength training: the boredom, crowded gyms, feeling self-conscious around meatheads'), and other topics. All roads eventually lead to food; Haupert's stated goal is to help readers lose weight and keep it off, not with drastic measures, but moderation. While laudable, her advice is essentially common sense: pay closer attention to what you eat, watch portion size, avoid processed food, and so on. When she does offer recipes, many are standards, though her 'Homemade Iced Coffee,' which calls for refrigerating a pot of coffee overnight, then serving it over ice — that's it — is notable only for its inclusion. Best enjoyed for its Teasdale-like properties, with plenty of lines to remember ('I've been known to drink every now and then — and have the stories to prove it!'), this one has to be read to be believed — for all the wrong reasons.
