Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wake-up call to all women who want to be thin. With such blunt advice as "Soda is liquid Satan" and "You are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin," it's a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant. Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the listener laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations. Behind all the attitude, however, there is solid guidance. Skinny Bitch espouses a healthful lifestyle that promotes whole grains, fruits, and vegetables and encourages women to get excited about feeling "clean and pure and energized."

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jasmine | 2/20/2014

    " Great Book. Minus all the unnecessary profanity this is a great book. Truly a frank conversation between you and the authors. I can honestly say that I changed my eating habits after reading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leiah | 2/17/2014

    " I bought this book after reading a chapter or two at a friend-of-friend's house when I found it on her bookshelf. I was so intrigued that i just HAD to buy it and read it. And i wasn't disappointed. This is the book that convinced me to eat vegetarian, and I've kept advice from this book in mind and have been avoiding meat since November 2010! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kim | 2/14/2014

    " bc now i have not had a chez buger since my bday :( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/12/2014

    " This book was absolutely hysterical, yet very informative. Rory Freedman has a way of giving important information to the reader while keeping their attention by using a funny, yet fresh way to do it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim Brunsvold | 1/28/2014

    " I just finished reading this book on the recommendation of my hair dresser. I haven't gone vegan as the bitches who wrote this book suggest but I have cut back on eating meat and dairy lately. The descriptions of meat factories were very disturbing and hard to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 1/25/2014

    " Sigh. I went into this book with an open mind. Some of their points were really good. For example, they totally sold me on staying away from sugar (as much as possible), and completely on chemical sweetener. (Btw - Stevia is Skinny Bitch approved!) But some of their assertions were just not backed up by science. E.g., (paraphrased) is not a scientific argument. Then in the last chapter they go way off the deep end and recommend fasting. But they admit in the book that they wrote it for animal rights (although it's not marketed that way) and they definitely got their point across on that front. The chapter on what goes on at slaughter houses is disturbing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mari Edwards | 1/10/2014

    " Two model industry wannabe nutritionists got famous enough to sell a few books by berating "fat chicks." FYI, cussing for attention and throwing the word "bitch" around does not make you cool. Is there a way I can give this negative stars? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lianne | 11/28/2013

    " Although, I found the voice to be harsh & crass; I have to admit that when I got past it this book helped to change my life. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Victoria | 11/24/2013

    " As a biochemist, I found this book completely offensive and unresearched. I don't consider pro-vegan websites scientific sources. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keita Ito | 11/23/2013

    " Definitely a game changer for me. One of the first books I read that made a strong case for going Vegan. Not for the sensitive as the authors are very blunt with a sense of humor that isn't for everyone. There are some Vegan swaps in the book and references to other invaluable resources. "

    " Very graphic.... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristy | 12/9/2011

    " I should've known by the title and the reviews that I wouldn't like it. From the swearing to the abusive language it was hopeless. We should not aspire to be skinny but healthy at a healthy weight. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine Claudette | 5/25/2011

    " two points for witty. thumbs down for lack of substance. An hour read if that. Skinny Bitch, pass the tacos please. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 5/2/2011

    " sounds superficial
    yet
    it is rich with spirituality, consciousness and intelligence in every page.

    a little rough, true


    but I now choose to other than participate using slaughtered beings to raise my consciousness "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika | 5/1/2011

    " It's interesting and made me consider changing some of my eating habits, but some of the things in the book seem to go a bit too far. It's still worth a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorena | 4/30/2011

    " I thought it was very informative and the data really helped me make some changes that i was already thinking of making. I didn't love the sassy way of writing but i think it kept me reading and not bored, some of the sassy-ness was funny. It's a quick eye opening read. "
