"My weakness has always been food and men--in that order." -Dolly Parton

"My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four unless there are three other people." -Orson Welles

"I have gained the same ten pounds so many times over and over again, my cellulite must have déjà vu." -Jane Wagner


On their lifelong quest to lose weight, Suzanne, Jennifer and Amy Barnett, three delightful sisters from Tennessee, have tried every popular diet. They've busted sugar, cut carbs, flushed fat, counted calories, and gorged on grapefruit. They kept hitting roadblocks on the road to skinny until they realized that what they needed didn't come in a magic pill but in one another.

They started www.3fatchicks.com as a way to track their weight-loss progress and found a community of dieters who were also at war with their waistlines and ready to support and encourage them every step of the way. Join the ride as Suzanne, Jennifer and Amy gather up chicks from around the world--from stay-at-home moms to biker-chicks, to sweet-sixteens to high-powered executives--to share their ups and downs of dieting. Here's what some of them had to say:

From the bedroom:
"Has anyone else noticed a low-carb sex surge? Since I started on Atkins two months ago, my sex drive has gone through the roof, and I have much stronger orgasms!" -Lustful in Louisiana

From the bank:
"If I continue with the LA Weight Loss Plan, I'm going to have to tap into my kids' college fund to pay for the LA Lites bars! Are there any cheaper options?" -Gina Going for Broke

From the gym:
"I'm on the Total Body Makeover plan, but the word aerobics gives me traumatic flashbacks to the 80s, and I get visions of pink tights and frantic dance movements in time to the soundtrack of Footloose. Can I lose weight without relieving these unpleasant memories?" -Not so Jane Fonda

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Diet Advice from Girlfriends! May 30, 2006
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I adored this book...full of good information and serious facts, but told in a conversational and humerous way that made all of it much more palatable than if I'd went to each diet's website or tried to read all their literature. Like the "Girlfriend's Guide to..." books, the writing in "3 Fat Chicks..." makes you feel like you are sitting down with your best girlfriends to get the 'real scoop' on what the popular diets out there are like, what they do well, what doesn't work, and most importantly, how to make them successful.

They provide guidance on how to select the right diet for you, believing that finding a plan you can stick to is key to future weightloss success. They emphasize healthy actions and healthy eating, which I appreciated after reading other books where the plans sound incredibly unhealthy and likely to cause lifelong damage. They know that the real secret to weightloss is cutting calories and exercising more, but also acknowledge that the way you approach that can affect your success as well.

I really appreciated the numerous quotes from members of the 3 Fat Chicks website who weighed in on their experiences with the diet and what worked and didn't work for them. They gave tips for dealing with the plans and making them more successful, which was really helpful. I'm a frequent user of sites that include recommendations from other users and have grown slightly dependent on hearing from others who have gone before on what they would do differently. The authors catered to that need by including advice, comments, and tips from many, many users of their website, many of which were amusing as well!

In addition, I found several of the recipes very interesting! It was an addition to the book that I didn't really expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars one size does not fit all June 2, 2006
By JFP
Format:Hardcover
Ever wonder why one plan works great for someone but not for you? And once you get started on something and you can't figure out how to fit all the pieces together and need some help, where do you go? This book. It has it all. It's plain to see that the three sisters have seen it all and done it all, and their community members have as well. There's a huge amount of useful information, lots of humor, and it's all honest. No holds barred.

Dieting is hard work, and keeping it off is even harder. 3 fat chicks know the struggle and share it with everyone they touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a GREAT read! May 23, 2006
By Geri
Format:Hardcover
As everyone that has ever tried over and over again to lose weight knows, trying diet after diet has been our course of action. The 'chicks' have definitely put together a great overview of numerous diet plans to help us on our way to selecting one the fits. The humor and light-hearted look at dieting makes for a fun romp through the diet jungle. A must-read whether you are a first time dieter or trying yet again to find an eating plan the works for you. The 'chicks' offer it all, a GREAT book and a wonderful website of support to go along with it. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! A diet book that makes sense May 7, 2006
By Jane C.
Format:Hardcover
This book is a must-have for anyone facing the battle of the bulge. The three sisters have taken the guess work out of many of the weight loss programs available, and have done so in such a way that the book was a delight to read. It's sprinkled with humor, but gets to the core of what you need to be healthy and reach your goal weight. Don't let another day go by without ordering this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a hoot! May 6, 2006
By lulu
Format:Hardcover
Even for those not on a diet, this book is sheer entertainment. It's witty, sympathetic, and all about real people. I read it in one sitting (laying?) in bed one night, and had to read bits of it to my husband, who wanted to know why I was laughing so much.

The sisters know what it's like to be on the diet-rollercoaster. It's tough going losing weight, but let's have fun doing it!

Thanks, ladies, for the wonderful book.
