A co-worker of mine did though and I thought her take on it was amusing: of course you'd be skinny if you didn't eat anything and you'd be a bitch too if you couldn't eat anything.  

 Pretty much.

One recommendation when shopping in a standard supermarket - spend most of your time in the perimeter of the store, not in the aisles - typically the whole foods (fruits, veggies, dairy, meat) are kept at the edges. The exception, of course, is the bakery.

 This.  In addition, it's best to avoid any product that makes some kind of health claim.

I own the book, read it twice, and still can not find how the title relates to the content. The book itself talks about eating in a "healthy vegetarian" way and the girls who wrote it did it in such a way it becomes boring to read.

Saying "if you want to lose wait stop eating crap" can be put in a better perspective by using other words, it is simple, but it doesn't convey a message that goes with the kind of lifestyle this girls talk about.

Eating nothing but vegetables and soy products is a dificult thing to do if you have eaten everything else for a LONG time, this girls make it look easy, and certainly it isn't.

Skinny bitch proposes a total radical change in your lifestyle, think twice before adopting it, your body may not adjust as well as you may want it to.

 The main issue I had with the book is that it insinuates that a vegan lifestyle is the ONLY healthy lifestyle and the only way to lose weight.  Consuming meat and dairy products can be healthy for you.  I've lost 30 lbs. doing so.  It implies that vegan lifestyle=being skinny.  Yet I know a ggod number of vegans that are overweight.  The book is extremely misleading and is filled with a lot of misinformation.

I think the book is geared towards a tween audience. The only thing I gleaned from it was the statement:

"DAIRY IS UN-NATURAL. HUMANS ARE THE ONLY SPECIES THAT DRINK MILK AS ADULTS AND DRINK THE MILK OF ANOTHER SPECIEIS"

Humans are also the only animal to cook their food.

 It makes me laugh when people use the argument, "humans are the only animals that......."   Humans are so drastically different than almost all other species in so many ways.  It's absolutely ridiculous to compare our diet with the diet of other animals.

I'm currently 135, down from 163.  I like how I look and feel at this weight.  I'd really like to get down to 125, but it's going to take some time.

I have lost 30 lbs. since January.  I started out as a 38DDD, I am now a 36C/D.  My husband said that I need to stop losing weight because my boobs are shrinking too much.  I told him when he helps to lug them around them he can have a say LOL.

Meal frequency or size of a meal is not going to matter at the end of the day as long as you stick to your calorie and nutrient goal....if you feel more energized or stimulated to eat more at breakfast then go for it.

 This.  It really depends on you and your eating habits.  For me, eating a big breakfast doesn't curb my hunger later in the day like it does for some people.  I do better when I eat 200-300 calories every few hours.   Do what works best for you.

As to the OP,  I also haven't fallen in love with exercising yet.  I've been hitting the gym since January.  I figured by now I would have reached the point of truly enjoying it.  The results I have seen are what drive me back everyday.  In addition to it being some relaxing "me" time if that makes any sense.  I'm a stay at home mom to two small children.  So after dinner I get to run out the door to the gym while my husband cleans up and puts the kids to bed.  I get to unwind to some music and do something that is healthy for my mind and body.

It is weird because I love talking about exercise/fitness and I really enjoy helping people with fitness whether it is with my clients that I train, or with people on here that need it. However, when it comes to actually doing it, that is another story..LOL I love the great feeling I get after a workout is done. The endorphins kick in and I feel like I accomplished something. While I am doing it however, I would much rather be doing something else. In the end though, exercise is something I will be doing for the rest of my life because it helps me to live longer and take care of my body.

Another thing working out as much as I do allows me to eat more calories, and I love to eat. Granted it is all healthy food, but still.. I do love my one cheat day a week though.

 

 Wow, v-man this is a surprise to me!  You speak so enthusiastically about exercise/fitness, I would have NEVER believed this to be the case.  I figured you loved working out.  I mean you do HIIT in the form of wind sprints, total hell, in my opinion.  Anyway, rock on.  Glad to hear that even the fittest sometimes don't actually enjoy the process.

I've read the book and it's terrible.  It's filled with a ton of false information.  And insinuating that eating dairy and meat makes you fat is absolutely absurd.

I drink around 96 oz of water throughout the day and then another 20 oz when I am at the gym.  What has allowed me to drink so much is keeping a 20 oz water bottle full on the counter with an 8 oz glass next to it.  About once an hour I fill the glass and chug all 8 oz at once.  By the end of the I have had 96 oz.  But stay close to a bathroom lol.

It's the 2nd edition (at least the copy in my house). Here.

 Huh, I guess Barnes doesn't have it.  Thank you.
