So, if you've ever bought a crap book (like I have) because someone said.."you should try it, it's great", but it's really crap..
Then you know what I'm thinking today.
It's a crap book that, I think, plays more on body insecurities than anything.
Yes, it is honest - about food, alcohol, COFFEE, etc. Stuff we know, but really do ignore.
While it's sometimes funny (there's a whole section on diet soda that I wanted to die laughing over - if you drink it and love it, you may want to skip that part..)..it's mostly nasty (most of the time they refer to the reader as a fatass, slob, etc.).
So if you've already got a really bad body image..skip it. Skip the WHOLE book. It'll put you into some kind of depression.
But if you're full of ego (like me!), and a knock down or two off of your high horse won't drive you nuts..try it.
At the end, I think..if you pull out 3/4 of the advice and use it, your lifestyle can change dramatically for the better. And sometimes we do need things said..in a certain way to actually pay attention.
But the WHOLE book doesn't need this vicious tone - it's overkill.
The writers are super opinionated - tofu is NOT God's gift to humans - I don't care how many innocent cows I'll save. I'll never trade meat for tofu as long as I live..and no matter what they try to tell me about the innocent slaughter of animals. Not. Gonna. Happen.
But. Some of the advice IS sound and some things I already do (or have given up).
So..it's a 50/50 on this book. Some good advice versus a nasty ass tone.
But what did I expect with something that has "bitch" in the title, eh?
