|both books wow! on Apr 16, 2008 @ 11:10 am|
I have ordered this book (the first one) from the library and I am #42 in line!!!! 42!! I'll be 42 by the time I get to go to the library and pick it up !
I am very interested and excited to read this. Sometimes I feel like I only eat apples, toast and red peppers (explanation in a question--Does anyone else eat the same thing every day in order to say on track?)
I am reading one of the Michael Montigiac's books right now. I think these ladies can help me out, I think they like wine as much as I do (even if I have to give organic wine a try!)
I lost 15 pounds before my wedding and have gained it back. Yuk. I am always try to eat healthy, but its hard.
|Books! on Apr 16, 2008 @ 01:12 pm|
I have no more compelling of a reason other than that I am finishing school and LOVVVEEEE to read!!! I can't wait to sit outside and enjoy some good (nonschool!) books! Looks interesting and would love to read and try to motivate myself off of that fantastically unhealthy student food i have been eating for too long now :)
|It's not so much about me... on Apr 16, 2008 @ 01:13 pm|
I don't necessarily need a skinny revolution in my life, but I'm trying to perpetuate a health revolution around me! I'm taking Holistic Nutrition in school and plan to pursue it as a career, because how we eat and take care of ourselves impacts EVERYTHING and EVERYONE around us.
On that note, the more resources I have, the more tips and tricks and trends that I am privvy to, the more I will be able to spread the word and encourage people to make healthier choices.
Viva la revolution!!
|Life change! on Apr 16, 2008 @ 04:24 pm|
I am in the middle of a complete overhaul of my life! I broke up with my boyfriend of two years, I'm moving into the city, I'm changing the way I look at life (with the help of "Mind Over Mood" by PhD Dennis Greenberger) and I want to change my body! I want to stop eating garbage and putting bad things in my body! I want to tone up and lose those last 10 pounds! This has been the hardest hurdle in my "life overhaul". Can you believe it is easier to change the way you think, than it is to put down the bag of chips and get off the couch!!!
I have picked up other "diet" and "better life style" books in Chapters, read the back of them, and put them back down. They just were not for me! To clinical, medical and "big-wordy". I like the idea of these books being for women. I want a book that will make me laugh but also teach me valuable information, techniques and skills. "Skinny Bitch" and "Skinny Bitch in the Kitch" seem right up my alley!
|I would love to read these books! on Apr 16, 2008 @ 04:44 pm|
I've been trying to get myself in shape, lose some weight, as well as trying to live a healthier lifestyle. So far..I haven't had much luck. The exercising I've been doing alright at, but when it comes to my diet, I'm struggling. Sure I know some of the foods that aren't good for me and I know I should eat more fruits and vegetables, but I'm horrible with coming up with meals that include these items. I would also like to learn more about organic foods, as the thought of some of the pesticides and artificial fertilizerss used in what I do eat, don't sound too appealing to me...gross.
I would love to give these books a spin, and see what the ladies have to say. Food right now is my biggest problem, I'm rarely home because of my work schedule, and always grab whatever random food items I find to keep me going throughout the day. I really want to focus on eating better, eating more balanced meals and cutting out the crap in my diet...but I don't know where to start! I always see health and diet books, and have no idea which one to try. Maybe these ladies can help get my butt into gear!

Tell me what you usually just like to eat?
Let me try to think of good menus hahaa.
|Meals on Apr 16, 2008 @ 10:45 pm|
My problem is I like the stuff that isn't good for me! Haha I can make meals/menus out of that. I'm wanting to know more of what foods I should try and include in my diet (more than just a generalization of 'fruits and vegetables'), and what to stay away from.
|This book changed my life forever on Apr 17, 2008 @ 09:21 am|
I don't want to be in the running for the books at all, but just had to say that Skinny Bitch changed my life so dramatically. I can honestly credit 15lbs of weight loss 2 years ago it it. I don't follow their principles as strictly as they advocate, but it completely changed my mindset about what I will put in my mouth.

|Who gets to be a Skinny Bitch on Apr 17, 2008 @ 12:55 pm|
Well, this was tough. You all gave some pretty compelling reasons. Thanks Khourianya for sharing your thoughts as well. It changed my life too. I haven't been able to eat meat since. Shocking for me.
- Eating on the run leads to the WORST food choices ever because you end up loading yourself down with 'convenience foods', which are typically chalked full of preservatives and other nasties.
- You are #42 on the list. That is just not right. Now you are #1. The other reason we chose you is because you have a diet of apples, toast and red peppers (???!!!) Girl, that is a one way train to so many issues I don't know where to start. Eating healthy is all about balance. If you have limited yourself to a menu like that it will eventually make you crazy (literally) and you're more likely to end up binge eating and gaining more weight than you've lost. We couldn't sit by and let that happen.
We wish we had enough for all of you. Enjoy the books ladies!
|Thank you on Apr 17, 2008 @ 01:55 pm|
Thanks so much
I'll read and let everyone know when I find good tips and what I think of the book. Lifes all about happy mediums and that's why some people can't maintain healthy habits. Everyone yo yo diets (I go on starvation diets- guilty-)) and then gain all the weight back. Apples and peppers are delicious but not all the time. I told I'm the easiest person to feed (bag of apples, bag of peppers, 12-pack diet coke) not anymore! My goal here will be sitting down to eat with my family.
