Book ~ "Skinny Bitch" - Kim Barnouin and Rory Freedman (2007)

From If you can't take one more day of self-loathing, you're ready to hear the truth: You cannot keep shoveling the same crap into your mouth every day and expect to lose weight.

Authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin are your new smart-mouthed girlfriends who won't mince words and will finally tell you the truth about what you're feeding yourself. And they'll guide you on making intelligent and educated decisions about food. They may be bitches, but they are skinny bitches. And you'll be one too-after you get with the program and start eating right.

Good reminder of what we should and shouldn't be eating if we want to lose weight.

But ...

The book is very vulgar with its swearing (yes, including the "F" word) which got tiring. The authors are vegans and are VERY anti-meat. I skipped over most of the chapter entitled "You are what you eat" because it graphically detailed slaughterhouse procedures, complete with quotes from those who work in them. I applaud the authors for not eating meat but didn't appreciate the way they tried to shove it down my throat so graphically.
