Publisher's Summary

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 is 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".

    "Not what it seems!!!!"

    I just want people to know what they are actually purchasing. I did listen to the entire selection. Though this is advertised as a no nonsense approach to weight loss, that is not what you'll get. You do get plenty of insults and vegan propaganda. You could get the same thing by reading the Jungle and a single magazine article on eating right.

    "Awesome"

    This book made me think twice about the food I was eating. I liked the authors no nonsense approach to eating right. The truth always hurts.

    "Not Your Mother's Diet Book!!"

    This book has interesting statistics and information and it is presented to you in a WAKE UP, startling, truck driver dialogue. Sometimes I found it funny and sometimes just plain vulgar. The essential message is about being Vegan, which is a good choice and the authors share a compelling opinion. I think the message is important but it is only one and one that is not for me! But some of the priniciples they shared, I did change in my diet on way to being my own brand of sassy Skinny Bitch!

    "The Low-Down on Skinny"

    This book is perhaps one of the best examples of using big words and supposed "facts" to scare people into believing you are right. "Skinny Bitch" is an exaggerated attempt to convert people to veganism. There's nothing wrong with veganism, but those of us who choose to eat a varied diet of other wholesome foods shouldn't be given the mistaken impression that a hamburger is going to turn us into a "lard ass".

    It just seemed to me that the graphic representations of animal mistreatment were unnecessary, the benefits of certain foods were understated, and that the danger of eating others were grossly exaggerated. Are these authors taking the PETA approach to nutrition, or did someone from the cattle and dairy industry abuse them as children?

    Also, after visiting the authors' website, I just want to add that neither of them are "all that" and maybe if they would eat some chocolate or have a burger they wouldn't be so "bitchy".

    "should be titled 'become a vegan'"

    I felt like I was being lectured. I didn't listen to the entire audio because to me, it seemed like the same thing over and over. I like the sarcastic tone. I didn't learn anything new. Would not recommend to others.

    "an effort to convert readers to vegetarianism"

    the book presents the author's position that the reader should be a vegetarian. this is done by trying to make the reader feel sorry for animals being slaughtered for food. the author attempts to intimidate by indicating the reader is less than intelligent if they eat meat. the profanity in the book is unwarranted and certainly unnecessary in a book that should be teaching someone to be healthy. not something i would have purchased had i known this in advance.

    "Crude and Misrepresented. Skip it."

    This book is misrepresented. It begins with a saucy attitude and reading in a "I'm-so-cute" girlie voice with pertinent information as well as (ahem) "colorful" terminology. Then the author degenerates into a vitriolic diatribe against meat eating with inappropriate vulgarities that lower the integrity of the book, but are still narrated in the little girlie voice. It is a bad mix, not as promised and I would neither recommend it nor have wasted my time and money on it if I had known.

    "A long-winded diatribe on becoming a vegan"

    If you're a member of PETA, you'll love this book. For the rest of us, don't bother. The book starts out kind of fun and interesting, but descends into graphic descriptions of slaughterhouses and factory farms, long-winded discussion on political issues regarding the FDA, and concludes you can't be healthy and thin unless you're a total vegan. I'll certainly be seeing all my fellow carnivores in hell! By the time it got to rattling off the extended laundry list of health food products and companies, I couldn't even listen anymore. UGH.
