Format: Paperback
I love anything health/wellness/food related and so I love diving into books under these subjects in hopes of learning something new. I didn't find that with Sexy Woman Eat. I found the information very typical and was a bit turned off by some of it. To be fair I come from a totally different philosophy of healthy eating; one that focuses on my own body's rhythm/cycle rather than calories and numbers. While reading Sexy Woman Eat I couldn't help but feel as if the author was trying to mimick the tone of Skinny B*tch and that coupled with the constant name dropping made me feel as if I could not relate to the author in anyway.

In any case, the book is fun and light and I would recommend it to those people who appreciate such a tone of writing. I would definitely say that for someone who is new to reading books on how to eat healthy there is info here that could be pretty useful.

Format: Paperback
Sexy Women Do Eat!! From chapters like "Serving Size Sexy" to "Cooking Through Cancer," Gugnani captures every aspect of our lives in relation to food, which is basically everything. She talks about her encounters with dark chocolate to subway's full of almond butter and bagel ordeals to sugar substitutes while baking, cooking through cancer, her relationship with men, family, friends college, marriage, divorce, death, birth, and everything in between. From this book, I feel both dependent and independent from food-able to control what I eat yet never deprive myself from what I want. I also have two daughters in college who I am passing this book too. It is the first one in ages that helps us cope with the break up binge without stuffing our faces, yet still teaches us that food is beautiful as are we. Anyone who loves food should own this book-which is everyone, unless you have a stone cold appetite of course.

This is a great book for those who need to learn about how to live a healthy lifestlye when busy. It names nutritious and tasty foods you should be eating and how to still have dessert by making healthy swaps in recipes, along with many other good information. It's fun to read and not preachy or boring. I have already recommended it to others!

Format: Paperback
I saw the title and cover of this book and was immediately attracted to it. And after reading the first page, I was hooked. Literally every story had me cracking up! My suggestion-don't read this on a silent, packed bus...laughing out loud every three minutes gets embarrassing, but totally worth it. It's rare that you find powerful businesswomen being this honest and, well, funny! So many of these "diet" books are unrealistic and have you changing your entire life in one day. This book is so easy to relate to and is all about convenience-perfect for easing myself into a healthier lifestyle! Sexy Women Eat has completely changed my relationship with food. Also - the recipes in there are awesome! I definitely recommend this book for anyone who loves to eat!

I'm a college student that has had a lot of trouble with her weight. Over the past few years I have spent loads of money on weight-loss programs, went on crash diets and tried popular "detox" cleanses. I pre-ordered Sexy Women Eat and it was an amazing read. I realized that I can enjoy food without depriving myself or cutting out whole food groups. As a college student, I try to save money as often as I can. Divya taught me that my own apartment at school could be substituted for an expensive gym membership! When I spend long hours studying and I don't have time to cook, I often resort to unhealthy take-out items. Divya gave me great take out tips and quick smoothie recipes. This book is perfect for college student that wants to be social and sexy while staying healthy! I would recommend this book to absolutely everyone!

I ordered this book on Amazon ages ago and honestly almost forget why I ordered it. Then I saw the title-DUH! A book that's called Sexy Women Eat is a must have. But not to clutter up my shelf. Since I got the book last week, I feel like I've met Divya and incorporate her recipes into my weekly routine. She made me feel better about not wanting to spend money at the gym this year. Instead, I learned new exercises to do around the house and gained a sense of empowerment after getting an inside look on her love for food. I feel all women should pick up a copy of this! A great read for a new year.

I figured Skinny Bitch when I bought it, but Sexy Women Eat has way more fun and tips to offer. The book was a 2 night read and definetly a worthwhile. Ways to cut down on calories and not on fun - this is a bible for any Social Diva! Cheers to Divya Gugnani, can't wait for her next book.

As a sexy woman who ate her way into morbid obesity, I never understood why self-proclaimed foodies are always thin. Divya Gugnani solves this mystery in her book, Sexy Women Eat.

Food is truly a passion for Divya, who used to work in a corporate job that she was not passionate about. As a corporate woman, she thought the answer to being thin was to spend time in a gym and deny herself her favorite foods. Gyms and diet are not the only way to become thin!

I know this, because I lost 100 pounds without dieting or joining a gym. As a former fat girl, I endorse Divya's solutions. Food is to be enjoyed in all its glory, so be selective about which morsels you enjoy. Divya takes it to an unusual extreme in that she prefers not to drink any calories, not even in coffee or tea. It might be hard to trust a woman who loathes coffee, but she redeems herself with her obvious love for chocolate.

As for exercise, Divya suggests ways to move more throughout the day. I personally have lost weight using this principle. It's not about time spent in the gym, it's about being more active.

The only puzzling part of this book is when Divya shares creative ways to get stains out of your clothes. This might be an invaluable tool for foodies, but does not apply to the majority of readers. Nevertheless, she brought up ideas that might be helpful.

This book offers a philosophy for how to enjoy life. Divya tells her personal stories throughout the book with an upbeat and conversational tone. Even if you can't relate to her stories, you can certainly relate to her humor.

I recommend this book as an entertaining read for sexy women who are tired of being told to hate food and spend more time in the gym.
