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.”
About the Authors
Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin started a movement when they wrote their bestselling manifesto, Skinny Bitch. Both a wake-up call and a kick in the ass, Skinny Bitch exposed the horrors of the food industry while inspiring people to eat well and enjoy food. They both live and pig out in Los Angeles.
“There is nothing unique about how I felt about my body or my eating habits. Yes, I wanted to lose weight. I’d been on Weight Watchers. I’d joined the gym once in my early twenties, paying a year’s dues although I had quit by the end of January. I was a burger queen, a chicken finger aficionado. Fries topped with mozzarella cheese were a mainstay of my diet, and I frequented all of the local diners. I was not immune to the societal expectations we all grow up with – size 14 isn’t plus-size when it’s the national average, right?
So I started reading a book that quickly grew on me. The authors, Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, had a no-nonsense writing style with a healthy dose of profanity. These were things I gravitated to. Their approach was controversial to some, but not to me. But the truth of the book is way more than “stop eating crap.””
