Book Club Friday #31

Friday Book Club! Time to link up with Heather and Katie!


This week, I'm sharing Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman & Kim Barnouin.

I scored this book for $1 at HPB. LOVE when that happens.


Book description from GoodReads: 

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."

My thoughts:

I couldn't put this book down. I was so enthralled in the facts about food and the way it's processed. It enlightened me and grossed me out all at the same time. It made me want to change the way that I eat. It made me want to stop eating meat. It made me want to start being more conscious about what I'm putting into my body. I highly recommend reading this, for everyone.

I gave it 5 out of 5 stars!

Sounds great, but not sure I could read it. I like meat too much and don't want to know the bad side of it! Glad you enjoyed it though!

Heather said...

I most definitely just put this on my to-read list!! I'm hoping it helps me with all the crap I put into my body!
