Skinny Bitch has changed my life. It has helped me become aware of the things I put into my body, how food is processed, etc. I give it 4 stars instead of 5, for the fact that some things may or may not be true, just as anything may be. Use your own judgement.
This book is my new "bible" of diet and has made the difference for me in finally making the much needed choices for alteration of my nutritional intake.
Thank you Skinny Bitches! :-)
The book is written they way I'm sure they talk. The authors' voices are very distinct in humor, logic, and research. The authors have a way of being rude and inspiring at the same time. Kind of like shocking you into changing your life. Some of their statements are not actually true, claiming for example, you can't be a Skinny Bitch and eat meat. I know plenty of skinny people who eat meat.
I bought Skinny Bitch and Skinny Bitch in the Kitch as a set and am really pleased with my purchase. The compact hardcover books fit nicely in my cupboard and make it easy to stand up and follow recipes. I like the recipes for Vegan Enchiladas and Garlic Fries.
It was funny (if you have a sense of humor that can tolerate cursing and crudeness) but at times a little over the top. The authors definitely have an animal protection agenda, but that aside, there is some useful new information in the book. Their approach is upfront, and they tell you straight up what you need to do to get healthy. I felt that their approach was much more realistic than other approaches which expect you to abstain totally from certain kinds of healthy staple foods (carbs, fruit, etc.). While this is a vegan "diet," and might be a stretch for people who love their steak, I didn't find the transition too difficult (I was a vegetarian for 10 years prior). Ultimately, there is some info in the book that is stretching the imagination a little bit far (like the dairy industry conspiracy theory idea), and the tone might be offensive to some (particularly those with sensitivity to food issues), but it's worth a read, and the cookbook is definitely worth trying out.
I picked this book because I recently learned that I am lactose intolerant, and so it made sense for me to become a vegan. But I'm not sure how useful this book would be merely as a weight loss tool since unless you have a moral or medical reason to become a vegan, this plan would be tough to stick to if your only ambition was to lose weight. Sure, you'll lose weight (I've lost about 10 pounds in the month since I made the switch), but in the long term I think it would be way to challenging for most people to adhere to.
Bottom line: try it, but take it with a grain of salt.
