I have to admit it - I definitely have been known to judge a book by its cover. So when I was in the book store the other day, the title "Skinny Bitch" definitely caught my eye.
It's "a no-nonsense, tough-love guide for savvy girls who want to stop eating crap and start looking fabulous." Written by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, these two women give you the facts straight up with a side order of sass and no sugar coating (pun intended).
The basic message in this book is if you eat crap, you'll feel and look like crap. They give you the truth about what you're putting into your body and how it affects you. In Skinny Bitch, there's no beating around the bush when it comes to coffee, sugar, meat, dairy products, smoking, and artificial ingredients - there are entire chapters devoted to how giving these up can make you healthy and help you "get skinny".
This is such an easy read since the voice is so upbeat, straightforward, and outrageous. All they say is backed up with interesting scientific facts in a way that's easy to understand so you feel like a friend is sitting you down and "telling you like it is" instead of some stodgy doctor.
After they give you the truth about what you're eating, they don't just leave you in the dust. There are also chapters about nutrition, meal ideas, great health food products, and a list of ingredients to watch out for.
I definitely recommend checking out this hilarious book that encourages you to wake up and smell the truth, and start getting healthy. You can get it at any major bookstore or order it from Amazon ($11.16).
