I absolutely hated this book. I think it's the only book that I've ever read that I wanted to burn. Good thing I got it from the library. I might have taken it more seriously if they didn't keep using vulgar language and calling us fat pigs and morons. Just once I would like to read a health/diet book by someone who isn't a vegetarian. I don't approve of the way that animals are treated, and would like to think that if more people stopped eating meat, then it would make a difference, but I just don't see that happening. They make dairy sound like the most evil thing you could put in your body. No other animal eats milk from other animals. The milk industry tells us lies saying that milk is good for us when really it isn't, just so they can make money. Sounds about right, but I still believe that dairy is good for us. I like cheese. I'm eating a cheese pizza as I write. My favorite was when they said that coffee makes your breath smell like ass. Good thing I don't drink coffee. This book did have some helpful stuff, if you are interested in becoming a vegetarian, but its always very gross, how they have a whole chapter that tells all about slaughterhouses and stuff. Some good night time reading there. I'll sum up the book so you don't have to spend money on it. According to the authors, you can only drink water and 100% juice, you can only eat fruits, veggies, and whole grains. And exercise. There you go. In a few simple steps you to can become a Skinny Bitch. If you do read it, be prepared for some inappropriate language. I thought it was funny how at the end of the book the authors said that they weren't really bitches, but this book really makes them sound like it. Check out the video clip on the Barnes And Nobles web site. They seem to think it was ok to call us fat pigs.
