Skinny Bitch

Lent to me by a very good friend, Skinny bitch has to be the funniest and frankest books about food i have ever read.

I am a self confessed food addict, hater and lover and generally All at once!

I spend my day thinking about food, trying not to eat food, thinking about what I'm having at each meal and how i can avoid the bad foods. Before this book i didn't know much about what was going into my mouth, i just shovelled it in willy nilly. now don't get me wrong i could tell the difference between good food and bad food but it didn't stop me wanting and/or needing bad food.

I am currently on chapter 5, also known as the dairy disaster. and i cant wait to read it this afternoon at my hair appointment, i enjoy the book so much i have order myself a copy of my very own and even gone as far as to buy the other books in the collection - Skinny bitch in the Kitch, skinny bitchin, and skinny bitch bun in the oven.

well to give you an insight into this ever so no nonsense guide to becoming fab......

Now this is no normal diet book although its full of facts its not mundane and boring to read like other books out there, it has honestly made me laugh so loudly even i want prepared for it! It is full of truthful, smart-mouthed revelations about food and what goes into food. its full of an obscene amount of attitude but behind all of this it has solid information. This book was written to help promote a healthy lifestyle full of wholegrain, fruits and beg and encourages women to become excited about feeling "clean and pure and energised."

one of my fav quotes from the book is - “You cannot keep shoveling the same crap into your mouth every day and expect to lose weight.”

This book is full of some COLOURFUL language! be warned!

~“Whenever you see the words ‘fat-free’ or ‘low-fat’, think of the words ‘chemical shit storm’.”

~“You might be fat because you don’t poop enough.”

~“You need to exercise, you lazy shit.”

Before borrowing and reading this book, i was unaware that the authors believe that the best way to be skinny is to have a vegan lifestyle. This i do not completely agree with however i do feel that having more fruits and veg in your life is defiantly a good thing!

This book takes an honest look at how we eat and why we are fat. The conversational tones make for a quick, entertaining read. There is a great section in the back of the book that lists bad or potentially bad food ingredients that we should look for when reading nutrition labels (I had no clue about some of this stuff), and it includes a great vegan/vegetarian resource section.

The book advocates a vegan lifestyle and condemns the consumption of all animal products. It does offer a menu to follow, but if you really are interested in starting to eat this way, I feel the book definitely falls short. I think a newbie to this type of eating needs more guidance than this book offers.

Still i feel its a great read :D

Available to buy at Amazon or any good book shop


  1. Ive managed to get thru about half of this book and then was totally put off by the language and the 'facts'! It's defo fun to read and I enjoyed it in a way, but think it would cause more mental damage to me than any good LOL Might give another try in a few months/years and see if I'm gonna have a different point of view! Good idea to review it here tho!!:)xx

    1. i didnt take it all to seriously by the time i finished, it hepled me look at food slightly differently and was a funny read


  2. This sounds pretty funny.
