I only read this book(or tried to read this book) because my best friend said it was AMAZING! I can't even begin to tell you how wrong she was. This book represents all that is wrong in the world of food. These two authors aren't teaching you how to eat right, they are teaching you to be anorexic (If you look at the sample menus they equate to aprroximately 700 calories/day-that is ridiculous!). The only reason this book got so much press was because Posh was photographed carrying it. The self p ...more

I began reading this for a bookgroup and stopped half-way through. It's complete crap. I've been vegetarian for years and know a lot about where my food comes from. These women's assertations are not only wrong in many instances but they are inconsistent and absurd. They are strongly against the eating of meat or processed foods. However, they strongly advocate the "fake meat" products available which ARE a highly processed food. This book is pop culture at its worst and has nothing to do with h ...more

I have a weakness for bookstores. I like to judge a book by the cover and the first two pages. Had I judged one of my favorite books, Of Human Bondage, by the first 100 pages, I’d never have gotten through. It was the raving review of the friend who loaned it to me that helped me persevere.

In SFO airport, I stopped by the bookstore before heading to security check. I had an itch to spend $15 I suppose. I picked up this book Skinny Bitch and thought it had to be the most extreme attitude of weigh

my lovely, trim, glamorous little sister received this book as a Christmas gift this year. its suspicious cover and title got the better of me, and i tore through the text in no more than two hours and needing a paper bag to breathe into. it was almost exactly what i expected. the emotionally and mentally abusive text - replete with cussing and pejoratives at least 4x per page - is nothing more than an obvious promotion of veganism. while i haven't anything against choosing to eat however one wo ...more

This book provides an excellent representation of the problems with American culture convincing women to declare war on their bodies. Chapter 1: "Healthy =skinny. Unhealthy = fat." No, I don't think that obesity is acceptable, but at 5' 10" women should weigh more than 120 lbs if they want to be considered healthy. And one of these authors has a degree in Holistic Nutrition? Oh wait, they're both models.
There are a few valuable facts, but you have to dig them out from the vulgar, angry accusati
This book changed my life. I was a vegetarian before I read it, and it made me understand my body and the vitamins and nutrients that I need to function. It is loaded with motivation and information. Anyone who wants to sit around bitching about the "language" a complete moron. I mean, really? Why would you pick up a book titled "skinny bitch"...and then complain about the language?...
Funny, at first. I took the crass method of delivery to be humorous, in-your-face, no-holds-barred satire. The writing style reminded me of the website "Smart Bitches Love Trashy Books." The authors' outline ingredients--approved by the FDA--in our food that are known (KNOWN!) to be bad for us. Case in point, Aspartame--the sweetener in some diet sodas--turns into formaldehyde inside our bodies. How gross is that? Did you know Aspartame was denied approval 8 times? Founder of Aspartame, G.D. Sea ...more

I think I liked French Women Don't Get Fat, better, simply because I'm not sure I would like either of these girls. Granted, I'm already not a meat-eater, and they do bring about some interesting points, etc. I would LOVE to stop wearing leather and drinking milk, eating butter and cheese, I even tried, inspired by this book (not to stop wearing leather, baby steps...)but to be vegan. Here's what I found: I'd rather not eat. Ie: I'd rather starve myself. I never felt full, and, unless I had an h ...more
These girls are potty mouths. I'm only barely through Chapter 3 and so far I am very intrigued. These girls know their stuff--it does definitely make you think about what you're eating.

And I LOVE cursing. Here are a few of the sentences I picked up within the first couple of chapters that really caught my attention:

1. Coffee is for pussies.
2. Say goodbye to soda and hello to a sweet ass.
3. In Chapter 11, we provide an "acceptable junk food" list that will make your nipples hard.
4. You need to

This book wasn't written to piss anyone off but boy has it ever. Some people that cling to their beloved meat have written some pretty rotten things about these ladies view. #1 the book doesn't advocate being anorexic or anything of the sort so come on...each days calories are far sufficient! Remember it is a book about health, the calories are going to be less than 3k b/c there are very few woman who need that kind of calorie intake. This diet doesn't condone BK food ok so get with the program! ...more
