Format: Paperback
This was a great, laugh-out-loud read!

I really enjoyed the author's tale of her struggle with losing a few pounds, it's easy to relate to (as any female (or even male) between the ages of 18 and 80 would) and genuinely funny. Till We Eat Again is a perfect summer novel, the diary format making it a good beach read or even, dare I say it, whilst on the bike at the gym. Because really, if Judy could lose those pesky pounds, I sure can too! Yes, it's also inspiring and motivating! Much more fun than a self-help book and much less painless than actually going to a Weigh Watchers meeting, you'll chuckle at the challenges that Judy (and her family) face just to drop a dress size or two.

The cover perfectly portrays the humorous struggle that you'll find on the pages within.

Highly recommended. Go read it!

I happen to know Judy Gruen, and she's as funny in print as she is in person, which is saying a lot. Her articles on Aish.com and in magazines are not only funny, but touch the experiences of women everywhere, which is one of the reasons her writing is so effective. Readers can't help but identify with Judy.

Judy's <Till We Eat Again> is a rollicking trip through Judy's attempt to shed 15 lbs prior to a reunion. We follow her struggle with conflicting and often wacky weigh-loss advice, the apathy of her spouse, and her children's hatred of health food. Her self-deprecating humor allows us to laugh at our own propensity to cheat when confronted with chocolate or be jealous of the effortlessly and relentlessly thin among our friends. Fortunately, Judy survives her fight slightly thinner, but with her humor completely intact.

Note: this book is not even remotely an attempt to give accurate weight-loss advice. It's more like a stand-up act. Fellow warriors in the battle of the bulge will, however, appreciate the humor and may even loose a couple ounces laughing (I almost fell off my bed at one part).

This book was marginally funny. I should have taken note on how few reviews there were before I purchased the book. I think Gruen's got potential, but she's got A LONG WAY TO GO before she could contend with the likes of Erma Bombeck. The only real "keeper" from this book if you're considering it for the topic is: "Chew Less, Move More"; save your money on diet fads and follow that advice.

I laughed so much... This is no average humor book. Believe it or not, it is going to help with my weight loss/ healthy living journey. The society and culture places so much pressure on body image. Sometimes I can get too serious and try to do everything "perfect". Putting the realness and fun back to life makes the journey so much more enjoyable. Thank you Judy for this book!

Judy Gruen's new book "Till We Eat Again: A Second Helping" is a laugh-out-loud, fun read.

Judy wanted to lose fifteen pounds for a college reunion. In an effort to do so She tries yoga, Zumba and belly dancing. She visits cardio-kickboxing class (which she loves!), personal trainers (which she doesn't love!), and she goes to weight watchers meetings. Luckily she takes us along for the hilarious ride with her easy to enjoy, diary style novel.

Her trials and tribulations are genuine and easy for anyone who has ever tried to shed a few pounds to relate to. As a former weight watchers points fanatic myself I especially like her stories about the disappearance of the 2-point Chocolate Mint bars. So accurate!

I enjoyed the fact that while she tried all the diet "craziness" she maintained a reasonable and healthy attitude and level of self esteem.

I think this book would make a perfect beach read, and with summer right around the corner I'll definitely be recommending it to my girlfriends!

Format: Paperback
This book had me chuckling every minute! I read it cover to adorable cover (makes a very cute gift!) one sunny afternoon while avoiding the gym, and enjoyed every page of the author's quest to slim down for her college reunion. Who doesn't relate to that?

We can all commiserate with Judy's aggravating friends, bewildered family members, intimidating bootcamp captains, and uncooperative scales. She does the pre-dawn workouts, healing crystals, overheated yoga, Zumba class, and point-counting--so we don't have to! And she kept me laughing during every episode as the chapters slipped by and the pounds finally came off in time for the big event and her final triumph.

This is a fast and rewarding read that is great to zoom through all at once (as I did) or to pick up at the beach, on the elliptical, or in the carpool line. Lots of fun!

This is a diary like book about Judy Gruen's quest to lose 15 lbs before a reunion. Who hasn't been there? While I found Judy's take on dieting and diet fads amusing, I did not find it riveting.
It was well written, paced appropriately, quietly funny/witty, an all in all easy read = it read more like a lecture than a book. I felt I could put it down for great lengths of time and not have it call me back to reading.
It's a light hearted look at dieting, it just wasn't immersing enough for me.
I gave the book 3 stars, as there was nothing structurally wrong with it, it just wasn't my cup of tea.
I received my copy from Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
