Publisher Comments:

Wardrobe stylist Kami Gray doesn't trust her bathroom scale but says a pair of jeans will never lie. Kami ought to know. She's spent twenty-two years cultivating a way of eating that makes sure her favorite jeans will always fit. In The Denim Diet, she presents her fun, no-nonsense blueprint for healthy eating in sixteen easy-to-remember habits to make and habits to break.

The Denim Diet takes the best of all the diets you've tried and turns them into a simple, yes-or-no approach you can actually follow. With hilarious real-life stories, gourmet recipes, and an infectious positive attitude, Kami will help you lose weight, get energized, and stay healthy without yo-yo dieting, gimmicks, starving yourself, or obsessing over daily weigh-ins.

Review:

"The Denim Diet is brilliant. You've dieted before, but have you ever really tried to eat your way to a healthier you? Kami Gray will teach you how. Let her be your food coach, and your life will change forever!" Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of The Rhythm of Life, The Dream Manager, and Perfectly Yourself

Review:

"With humor, wisdom, and practical advice, Kami Gray gives women a great gift by simplifying the overwhelming mounds of data about food, diet, and exercise into easy-to-follow, commonsense habits that anyone can embrace." Christine Arylo, author of Choosing ME before WE: Every Woman’s Guide to Life and Love

Review:

"Kami Gray is a terrific teacher. The Denim Diet addresses and puts into perspective difficult and complex subjects — what we eat, how we feel, and how we look — with humor, encouragement, and vast knowledge. Her approach is inspiring and, most of all, practical and doable. I don't worry about how I look in jeans (perhaps I should), but I immediately put Kami's lessons about healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle to good use." Marc Lesser, author of Less: Accomplishing More by Doing Less

The Denim Diet is not a diet, but an eye opening look at a BETTER way to eat! As someone who loves to eat, I can say I've read everything out there: food combining books, GI books, no carb books, no sugar books! Name it and I've probably read it. Kami writes this book as if she's talking to the reader. It is clear and easy to undertand! You'll be amazed how easy this can be! Give yourself a chance and reward yourself with a gorgeous pair of denim that makes you feel like a million! I did! There are so many real, funny stories in here that anyone could relate with! If you are serious about a healthier way to eat, The Denim Diet is a friend you can keep in your purse while you shop! There are so many great foods out there, and Kami shows you the "how" and "why" they are important. She even offers her site address in the book so you can contact her questions, blog or just say "HI!" With weight loss benefits as a cherry on top of your fruit salad (no cakes here girls!) you can't go wrong with Kami!

Excellent book! I’m going to buy this book for all my girlfriends. I already told them that I was and it's not because they’re fat. It is because they are going to love it as much as me and I wouldn't be a good friend if I didn't share, now would I?

First, and most importantly (to me anyway) it's hilarious. Kami just calls it like she sees it. With a couple parts self deprecation and a couple parts in your face - you will be laughing too. Secondly, (and still quite important), it makes sense. Kami Gray writes in a way that not only explains her 16 simple steps to eating healthier with straight talk, but intelligently as well. I’m not a fan of dieting and this book is perfect because it’s not a diet book. It logically explains how to retrain your brain and easily create new, healthier habits, without ever going hungry. Not to mention as a result you will look better in your favorite jeans. Bonus!!
