Publisher's Summary

Are you sick of being on a diet? Do you always seem to be struggling to stop gaining weight? Fat Girl Friday is the most unique dieting book ever written – it will change the way you eat for the rest of your life! Craig Beck is one of the fittest, healthiest and most toned people you will ever meet. So why is he known around the world as ‘Fat Guy Friday’? In truth that’s exactly what he used to be.. a big fat guy! Until one day he said enough is enough and broke the cycle of yo-yo dieting that had plagued his life.

On Friday 10th September 2010 he stood on the scales at a depressing 252 lbs. He was the heaviest he had ever been, something as simple as walking up a flight of stairs would leave him gasping for air, he struggled to play games with his children and was the most miserable he had ever been. A former hypnotist, Craig knew that problems in life are primarily the result of dysfunctional programmes running in the subconscious mind, which are creating the very things we are unhappy with. Whilst he was building a system to deal with his own ever-expanding waistline he discovered two common traits shared by virtually all-overweight people. By removing these two secret problems he found that no matter who tried his system lost weight. Better than that, at no point did any of them report being hungry, irritable or unhappy during the process. In Fat Girl Friday, Craig pulls no punches and delivers a wakeup call designed to change your life for the better, forever!

The two reasons why you are overweight. Why every diet you have ever tried has failed. What the diet industry doesn’t want you to know. The secrets only slim people know. How to lose weight & feel great without feeling hungry, ever! Feel better and healthier than you ever thought possible.

Yes Very good Funny and informative

Would you consider the audio edition of Fat Girl Friday to be better than the print version?

I have not read the book, but the audio version is great. It is informative and funny and at the same time it keeps you thinking outside the box.

What did you like best about this story?

It makes you look at food, eating and food cravings in a completely different way. If you can make it 2 weeks, then you can do it. It works! I lost 24 pounds in the first 7 weeks and was never hungry and ate anything.

Which character – as performed by Craig Beck – was your favorite?

Craig Beck

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did have an extreme reaction, but it was more like excitement.... I have never read a weight loss book that I actually thought I could do. I love Pizza, I love lasagne, so I thought I could not do it, then I realized it wasn't the bread or the pasta I loved, it was what was on them. What a way to look at food and really enjoy it and never gain weight again. I eat topping off the pizza and throw the crust away. What a concept, and have salad with it. I have never been happier

Any additional comments?

Just open your mind and try it if you have been a yoyo dieter forever like I have.

Just another high protein/low carb diet.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It started out as a funny story and I had high hopes for it, but the author did a little too much bashing of everyone else, including his own acquaintances (who hopefully didn't hear this book). I was really disappointed, especially when it had no tips for women and turned out to be just another high protein/low carb push.

What was most disappointing about Craig Beck’s story?

He insults a lot of people, didn't seem necessary to me, made him lose credibility with me.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

He has a good sense of humor and a good sounding voice, he should have focused on his assets.

Who knew

If you could sum up Fat Girl Friday in three words, what would they be?

Life changing, Thanks

What other book might you compare Fat Girl Friday to and why?

I haven't read any other book that made me stop eating what I was eating, It's only been a couple weeks and I feel amazing already

What does Craig Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love his sense of humor and his accent, he should tell his own story!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

YES! I am seriously re-examining what I eat and why, I also joined the gym and am still going after 6 weeks.. Thank you

Same book, different title. Nothing new here.

Would you try another book from Craig Beck and/or Craig Beck?

Yes I think so, but I would make sure it was new stuff, not repackaged old stuff just with a different title. This is Fat Guy Friday just under a different title, extremely disappointing and waste of money.

Has Fat Girl Friday turned you off from other books in this genre?

No but it has made me wary of Craig's books. He has a lot of repetition in all his work, it gets annoying.

What didn’t you like about Craig Beck’s performance?

It's the same as his other book Fat Guy Friday, just aimed at a different demographic. Very misleading and a bit sneaky.

What character would you cut from Fat Girl Friday?

NA

Any additional comments?

Craig is good, but this is a disappointing ploy to sell books. I made the mistake of buying both so my fault I guess, buyer beware.

Great help and advice.

I love the clarity and frankness of Craig Beck. He is very honest about everything we need to know about getting started and getting a person understand what needs to be done to get the job done. i appreciate his straight forward approach and not holding anything back. sometimes it takes a push to get the point across.

easy listening

I'm a fan of the paleo diet and I loved hearing a true, honest version that Craig puts out there for us. we are responsible for our own weight and I myself am sick of hearing excuses as to why we are one of the fattest countries in the world. we all need to quit being whiny little bitches and take responsibility for ourselves and our health.

NOT ANOTHER FAD DIET

Would you consider the audio edition of Fat Girl Friday to be better than the print version?

Yes because you can listen anytime. His voice is very convincing and his stories hit home. He is able to take complex nutritional jargon and make it very simple to understand.

What other book might you compare Fat Girl Friday to and why?

I've read dozens upon dozens of "diet" books from celebrity weight loss trainers, PHDs, life coaches, chefs, etc and all had short term benefits. Craig Beck's Fat Girl Friday actually made me change my habits and understand how simple it is to lose weight and keep it off long term.

What does Craig Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Craig Beck brings humor and guidance without ever sounding flat, boring, elitest, or condescending. He sounds like a big brother who is just looking out for his friends and extended family. Reading the book is fine but only 1 dimensional, listening to the audio really brings it home.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Wheat Lied To You... ha ha ha

Any additional comments?

I am very much hoping Craig Beck makes the talk circut here in the US!

Pulling no punches approach appreciated

Where does Fat Girl Friday rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This books rockets you into action, into reality. The indepth informational facts are so thought provoking, scary yet refreshing.
Poison alert! Wheat, oats, barley, rye, even whole grain wow. Not GMO oh boy still poison.

Thank you Craig

What did you like best about this story?

The facts

What about Craig Beck’s performance did you like?

All

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Gasped. Laughed, inhaled, relieved to be alerted

Any additional comments?

Keep going Craig, we ( my husband and me)

good motivation to get healthy ☺

I found this book easy to listen to, very witty, realistic and a good motivator. It didn't take long to get through it, never got bored as I did with other diet books. first day putting it into practice, not finding it difficult in fact I'm full up all day. .will post again after 1 month to show the progress.

inspirational

I rarely write reviews but felt that this is deserved.
Craig Beck narrates his own book and it's so easy to listen to. It almost sounds like he's having a chat with you.
His enthusiasm is infectious and he has inspired me to go for it! He really explains in an easy to 'get' way the science bit behind the diet without being dull - the method behind the madness as some people may see it.
My diet starts now not tomorrow.
