    Have you read it?? I am almost finished, and it is quite the eye opener. I am a huge animal lover, so it has definitely changed my mind on eating meat.. Did you know that being a vegetarian saves 100 animals a yr??

    Anyway, it has some great ideas.. and is really blunt on what girls need to do to be skinny. It does throw out cuss words here and there.. but I think that is to set the tone.. sort of like a tough love.

    I totally recommend it!!!!!

      Is this a book, I presume? Never heard of it but all for learning how to become a "skinny bitch" ... as long as they don't throw personal beliefs and such down your throat. Just get it at a bookstore?

              I read this and thought it was amusing...but 100% did not agree with it. They basically support only being a vegan..and urge you to eat nothing but organic "processed" food, like all morningstar farms and stuff. It is a cute read, but I would take it with a grain of salt!

                Yup, I got it mostly for laughs.
                I'm not through it all yet, but have noticed how they promote a lot of speacialty brands. They also make a lot of generalizations and although it sounds all scientific I wouldn't take it seriously without doing your own homework.

                  Yup, I read it last week and that's exactly what I thought. The book does have some good health points, but I don't agree that being a vegan is the only way to be healthy (hence skinny.) But it's a good/fun read.

                  I posted this on another thread - just be carefully, there's a whole chapter dedicated to the graphic details of what goes on in some slaughterhouses. That may be too much for some of you to read, just skip that chapter.

                    Just browsed it, so don't know much about it ... but what I did read was hilarious! Especially about the artificial sweetners in diet sodas ... it made me think twice and i've definitely cut down (but I confess I can't completely give them up and I LOVE splenda ...). Since I haven't read it, I'm not sure how "accurate" it is thought ... I think after reading that part about artificial sweetners, the New England Journal of Medicine came out with a long-term study that showed that saccharin doesn't cause cancer and isn't as harmful as once thought ...

                    Regardless - find whatever works for you! Thanks for the recommendation!!

                    I broke down and bought the book today. I read the first chapter and was like "I need to read the rest of this book". I love their tone, look here fat pig and lazy ass LOL

                    I haven't put it down yet...
