Skinny Bitch

ImageDo you want to become a "skinny bitch?"

And authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin do not mean it in a derogatory way. No, there is nothing bad about transforming into a woman who wants to stop eating crap and begin looking wonderful. Their definition of a skinny bitch is a person who likes food, eat well and loves her body.

It does not matter what the number on the scale is. A "skinny bitch" comesin all shapes and sizes, they say. Both Rory and Kim, a former modeland a former modeling agent respectively, had their own demons with food
until they figured out the impact a healthy diet could have.

The premise of the Skinny Bitch approach to regaining your health iseasy. Eat all of the carbs you would like -- bread, pasta, potatoes andcookies. However, eliminate red meat, dairy products, sugar, refined flour
or artificial sweeteners.

Replace those foods with soy products, whole grain products, soy products, water, decaf green tea and organic red wine.

So it's not just the health aspects of the vegan diet that they embrace, but the ethical grounds of foregoing meat that also resonate with the diet's designers. The gals think that animals in the food industry are treated inhumanely and that the food is no prepared in a safe fashion.

But just because they're encouraging you to go vegan doesn't mean you will not enjoy the slimming process. Substitutes for sugar include evaporated cane juice, brown rice syrup, molasses, raw sugar, beet sugar and maple syrup.

Skinny Bitch has already spawned two follow-up books-- Skinny Bitch in the Kitch and Skinny Bitch Mamma, a guide to healthy eating for moms-to-be.
