Book ~ "The Secrets of Skinny Chicks" - Karen Bridson (2006)

From Amazon.com ~ Bridson profiles 25 svelte women, including models, actors, athletes and regular folks, to reveal exactly what it is each one does to look so great. These women share with you their tips for planning menus, exercising, and staying motivated as well as advice on boosting metabolism. You will learn how to adapt these secrets into your own life safely and realistically.

Twenty-five women, who reportedly don't have high metabolisms, were interviewed. I found it amazing how poor some of their diets were. It's no wonder they have to work out two hours a day. You can eat junk but you have to work out extra hard to get rid of it. They were making room in their diets for cookies, donuts, etc. For me, it's all or nothing. I can't stop at one cookie so I avoid them altogether.

The fifty tips were good ... common sense stuff that was a good reminder.

yeah right they don't have high metabolisms. can't believe that.

I can't stop at one cookie either. But lately I haven't gained any...so that's good.

Interesting concept. I'm with you though...one is never enough. I do better not to have sweets and treats in the house. It's too easy to grab something without even thinking about it.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blogging video!
