Yes you read the title right... This is the infamous bestseller diet book that Victoria Beckham was snapped with (pictured below).... The "No-nonsense, tough-love guide for savvy girls who want to stop eating crap and start looking fabulous!" hit bookstores around the world in 2005, and was fast to be found a best seller (and a VERY controversial read).
It has been one of the most entertaining, and motivating books I have ever read. It certainly educates the reader on the process these companies go through with the food we then put in our bodies... If you feel you can NEVER go through life without meat, the book suggests what TYPES of meat and food products to steer clear of - Like product that has been pumped full of steroids and pesticides ECT. I have found it has made me more aware of what I am REALLY putting into my body. I firmly believe that what you put in, is what you get out... or to put in other terms... "YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT".
So... You have heard the hype. Here is one of my favorite parts of the book...
"DON’T BE A PUSSY."
What if someone told you that you could totally change your life and have the body you want for the rest of your life? What if all you had to do was follow a simple formula and maybe struggle for a month or two? What if you could reprogram your brain to actually enjoy healthy foods? Well, guess what? You can change your life. You can have the body you want for the rest of your life. You can enjoy healthy foods. All you have to do is follow a simple formula, and be wiling to delay gratification for a few months. A few months. That’s it. Then you can enjoy a new body for the rest of your life. Don’t be a pussy. You have all the nutritional information you need to become a Skinny Bitch. The rest is up to you. While this is a lifestyle, and not a diet, it is going to feel like a diet for the first thirty days or so. During this time, you will be retraining your brain, healing your taste buds, and cleansing and detoxifying your body… Recognize that anything worth having is worth fighting for. Good health, vitality, more energy, more confidence, better sex, great abs, a tight ass – You either want ‘em or you don’t. You can continue plodding along in your life feeling like you’re not living up to your glorious potential or you can dedicate yourself to creating the life you want. Fuck excuses about not having the time or the money. Certainly your health and your body and you are more important than anything else in your life.”...
"So if you can’t take one more day of self-loathing, you're ready to hear the truth: You cannot keep shoveling the same crap into you mouth every day and expect to lose weight...." Says Authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. Don't take this book too seriously... To be honest, parts of the book I wont implement into my health - However it was a great laugh (the authors are very blunt and straight to the point...) but also an educational experience on your health and what you are putting into your body. Personally... I believe everything in moderation, I have worked very hard on my health and fitness to have the figure and body strength I have today... So .. possibly a better title... Healthy B*tch?
Love & Happiness
