skinny bitch??

Have any of you read the book skinny bitch? I sat down and read it after hearing about all the hype and as someone who tries to eat balanced meals, I feel very skeptical. Maybe its just the part of me that like fish, lean meat, non-fat dairy, and thinks eggs are wonder foods that is skeptical but nonetheless.....i was wondering if anyone knows/has thoughts on how accurate their nutritional claims about food are? or if you beileve/follow the book?

loved the book, I have been following the ideas for about 1 week, and I am down 5 lbs. I weigh 135 now, my goal is 120. I liked that the book was so direct and to the point. I don't think I can live a strict vegan life, but some of the principals are no brainers and just make sense, so for now I cut out all sugar/ real and fake. just common sense in a drill sargent method : )

Is that how it works :-)

Good chocolate doesn't contain dairy.

I plugged this into the search window to see if there were any comments about this book. So the crib sheet is go vegan and you'll be skinny? I guess they put a provocative name and it sells. Vegan is a very "hippy" thing that is hard to relate to.

I read it cover to cover and I leave it out for daily reminders as to why I have decided to incorporate the Skinny Bitch philosophy into my life.

I am not Vegan, however I did give up meat; beef, poultry, pork. I will occassionally have fish, but I've been sticking to a meatless diet, watching my sugar intake, and eating a lot more fruits and vegetables. Also! I've been eating my carbs!!! The result...clear skin, more vibrant hair, stronger nails, less anxiety and mood swings, and I'm down 14.5 lbs since I started the program about 2 months ago.

After I read the book, I felt a little deceived because the book isn't advertised as PRO Vegan - regardless, I got some good out of it and am happy with my new lifestyle.

On my way to being skinny...

I have read the book and love it! I'm eating all organic foods, leaving out most meats (if I do have meat, I try to make it organic). I have also given up dairy. I am losing weight consistantly now...with much less exercise than I was doing before. I eat 6-7x per day. I still have chocolate. I try to make all my sugar raw, or use organic honey. I still have cookies (vegan-and you wouldn't know). I still have chips (organic pita, or bean and rice chips). I do not feel deprived in any way. And I am not a strict vegan at all. I believe the book essentially teaches the removal of chemicals, additives, hormones, and antibiotics from your diet and your body will automatically find it's way back to it's natural harmony. I believe 100%. It's happening to me right now.

For all of you that haven't read it, it's a very quick read! I read it in one sitting at the bookstore. Highly recomended.

I think I was there about an hour? or hour and 1/2. Yes, I cheated ;), but I think I still want to buy it!

skinny bitch???

I thought it was a terrific book, and after reading it, bought multiple copies and gave it to friends and family to read. I have been a vegetarian since 1989 and do not have a problem with my weight - specifically because I do not consume dairy, meat, eggs and other gross chemically manufactured foods as talked about it the book.

I'm not sure why you are so skeptical, probably because you want to hang on to your old habits. Everything in the book was well documented and factual.

I'm skeptical about it because I've read other research out there that says going vegan is unhealthy for a variety of reasons. I'm skeptical because if I don't eat enough animal protein, I wind up feeling sluggish and icky. I'm skeptical because I tried a different diet plan that has me regularly eating meat (preferably lean and organic, no pork) and my skin cleared up, the depression went away, the migraines went away, the asthma disappeared, the allergies disappeared, and I never get heartburn or indigestion anymore. Plus, in 2 years since I've been eating this way, I haven't gotten a cold, flu, or any other kind of illness.

The only reason I'm not at my "ideal" weight is because I haven't been able to cut my grain servings down to 4 a week. I lost 40lbs when I started my diet, in less than 6 months. If I get such fantastic results and am happy with my diet, I would be skeptical of changing to something like skinny bitch which is diametrically opposed to my current way of eating.
