This fantastic book changed completely the way I eat and live. I will never support very skinny girls like the models. Saying that I don’t know if it’s because I am born in France but for me being slim is really important. Overweight people reflect bad health and poor lifestyle choice – and yes I think overweight people are not sexy or cute. Being slim means to be in control of your body and of what you are eating – Skinny Bitch a wakeup call to all women who want to be thin, is a must read book.This is not a diet book, it’s a lifestyle book, helping you to realise what industrials put in our plates and how you can change your eating habits.
Skinny Bitch – $15.99 – iPhone – iPad – iPod – Mac
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.”
Publishers Weekly Review
With more than 2.7 million copies of his The Four Agreements sold, Ruiz returns to readers with a new volume that presents his latest thoughts on the ways and means of inner knowledge and healing. Written in the first person with frequent apostrophic addresses (“You need to challenge every belief that you use to judge yourself, to reject yourself, to make yourself little”), the book moves gracefully and anecdotally from”Adam and Eve: The Story from a DifferentPoint of View” to”The Tree of Life: The Story Comes Full Circle,” with 10 chapters in between, including”The Lie of Our Imperfection,” a chapter that covers”emotional pain as a symptom of abuse” and one on”Writing Our Story with Love,” with frequent stops for”Points to Ponder.”For Ruiz, life can be a matter of storytelling, to ourselves and to others. His reflections on the process of how people tell these stories, and how they can change their narratives, draw on the lore of his native Mexico and feel both centered and earned.
“The frank, “get real” approach of this diet book may be just right for those who have tried and tried without success to lose weight and keep it off. As the title indicates, the language is salty as Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin tell readers just what they must get rid of in their everyday eating: sugar first, followed by meat and dairy. Freedman and Barnouin recommend a vegan lifestyle and tell why, and then offer more than 75 recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. They help readers break through the mental denial about bad food habits, and offer responsible and fun food choices without denying cravings and appetite.”
