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".

    "Useful to lose weight but not entirely correct"

    Some of the comments about Soy and agave are false. Soy works differently in different bodies and agave is treated just like cane sugar, diabetics have been told to treat it the same. Overall I listen to this for motivation and mindset to lose weight and it works. But you need to educate yourself on macros and food sources. You need to know how your body reacts to certain things. Vegan cuisine is still very expensive and not entirely practical even for vegetarians. If you want to lose weight, watch the calories and make sure ALL of your plates are 75-100% green.

    "Vegan Manifesto"

    Is all it is. I don't believe half of what is in it. Like anything extreme, you can adopt a few good habits by rolling back meat and dairy consumption and hiking up organic consumption, but you don't have to follow their recommendations to the letter

    "Skinny Bitch is Bitchen!"
    Where does Skinny Bitch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of those life changing books to slap you in the face to say WAKE UP!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Skinny Bitch?

    From the beginning, this book is clear it is about nutrition and not "a diet book". The use of many four lettered words tells it like it is. I was inspired by the authors.


    Which character – as performed by Renee Raudman – was your favorite?

    She conveys the passion and conviction of the author's Vegan Lifestyle; to read, question, and challenge the our American food production and farming practices


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

    This book was FAR Left of any healthy eating/diet/exercise I have ever heard. This is a great bookend to "Supersize Me". The animal slaughter practices chapter are worse than any horror story. I applaud the authors for their gutsy conviction for readers to get informed about nutrition and where our food comes from.


    Any additional comments?

    LOVED IT! Going to change many eating habits of my own.

    "Embarrassing narration"
    How could the performance have been better?

    My only comment for this audiobook is that the narration was so off the mark - such a poor choice of narrator. I can put up with a lot if its the actual author reading their own work, but why the hell did the publishers select this 'easy-listening' narrator to read the tongue-in-cheek text of Skinny Bitch? It's so cringe-worthy and embarrassing to listen to this woman curse or try to exhibit any level of sassiness, which is the cornerstone of the Skinny Bitch brand. They should have done their due diligence in selecting a female narrator whose delivery wouldn't make you feel like you were watching Helen from Accounts Payable doing a rap performance at the office Christmas party.

    "Please skip this book"

    I've been a science journalist specializing in medical reporting for the last 15 years...and, I also happen to be a vegan (for ethical reasons that stem from a former employment with Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences).

    I'll sum it up: this book infuriated me. It basically comes from the same position I do with regard to diet and governmental overview of the food industry--but does so with nothing but a barrage of incorrect information, misinterpretations of facts, faulty assumptions, and a complete lack of perspective. And all this under the guise of giving "bitchy," humorous advice (which it basically fails at).

    I'm not going to even begin to try to address any of the entirely wrong scientific or historical inaccuracies--there are just too many. I would just want warn people that this is not the place to start if you want to learn about the vegan lifestyle or perspective on the food industry. Try "Vegan for Life" by Jack Norris and Virginia Messina (actual dietitians) and "Eating Animals" by Johnathan Safran Foer (a great listen here on Audible).

    "skinny bitch"

    loved the info. hated how dirty mouth it all was. swearing, nasty comparisons, etc. However, that said, I do want to become a skinny B. I would BUY this book instead of listening to it because there are websites and brand names that you will want to have written down.

    "Perspective-changing book"

    Surely a "must read", however the chapter about slaughter processes is not suitable for everyone.

    "Absolutely the WORST book I've EVER listened to"

    If you want to hear exaggerated (IMO) stories of tortured animals to coerce you to become a vegetarian/vegan..... it'll probably be great for you. Having someone constantly swear is a plus if you want to hear this book... In my opinion, a TOTAL waste of funds.
