Skinny Bitch : A No-nonsense, Tough-love Guide for Savvy Girls Who Want to Stop Eating Crap and Start Looking Fabulous! Paperback
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 by Ponies
I was looking for a book to jump-start a few health improvements, maybe some weight loss. This book is quite funny while at the same time it lays down some HEAVY info about the food industry. I didn't know I would become a vegetarian after reading this. But I stopped eating meat the day I read the chapters on the meat industry.
Review by NativeRoses
Funny, no nonsense, tough talk on eating well and being healthy. Like talking to one of your smart girlfriends.

Life changing. I think deep down, I knew everything that was in the book, I just needed to have it told to me in the manner described in the book to have it really hit home. I'm on my way to being a much healthier being!
Review by llamachameleon
I picked this book for a friend, and read through it while I was waiting to see her. It is, in a word, terrible.First off, it is vegan propaganda in the guise of a self help book. If you are vegan or plan on becoming vegan and want a book about it, there are much better books out there that don't hide their true intentions.The bigger problem with this book is that the authors had no business writing it in the first place. Neither of them is qualified to give nutritional advice, and much of their advice is flat out wrong. One of the authors is a former modeling agent; the other is a former model with a degree in nutrition from an unaccredited correspondence school.If you want a poorly researched treatise on the benefits of becoming vegan written by foul mouthed models, then buy this book. If you want a book that offers more than insults and a fad diet, keep looking.
Review by TheBoltChick
This book takes an awful lot of common sense and presents it in a very entertaining manner. I have been eating this way for years now. For some reason our modern day world has lost sight of the fact that real food, grown from the ground is the healthiest. Hopefully people can read this and take a different look at the way they eat. And for people who choose to eat meat, they will hopefully now choose more carefully and avoid the high volume, factory farmed types.
