Product Description

Review

"A thoughtful book for those fed up with structured meal-plan diets and complicated rules." (The Times)

"Admirably sensible...Practical and pleasingly eccentric, this is the least irritating self-help book of the year." (Daily Mail)

"A snacky, fun and encouraging guide to accepting ourselves as we are . . . With life-changing advice, laid-back nutritional nuggets and anti-celebrity thinness treatises, this is a multi-vitamin treat for soul and body." (Good Housekeeping)

"[A] no-nonsense guide to shifting pounds and looking fantastic." (NOW magazine)

"A pleasure to read . . . her tone is as sweet and light as a sugar substitute." (London Lite)

Book Description

The ultimate feel-good lifestyle book for women from the co-author (with Michael Mosley) of bestseller The Fast Diet : because looking great isn't just about losing weight.

A very amusing book that tells us in a zany way the things we know already about losing weight. Eat less, exercise more and drink water. I so wish that Chapter 101 had been Chapter 1. I would most certainly read Mimi Spencer again and look forward to her next book.

I must say I loved reading this book and read it within 3 days. The author is witty and everything we already knew about dieting just makes more sense (eat less, become more active and drink lots of water). When reading this book I get the sense Mimi was trying to tell us life is too short to obsess about food and weight, but to incorporate healthier lifestyle changes daily.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a fresh and funny approach to dieting because after all..we are all human!

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Atara on 12 Feb. 2010
Format: Paperback
Although it's a very entertaining and well-written book, the title is misleading - it is a diet book for every purpose. It even has a few diet recepies in it (tasty, but they are there because they are low-calorie). If you are trying to make peace with food and get away from compulsive eating, this is definitely not the book for you. It doesn't teach you how not to diet, but how to win the battle: How to avoid beckoning bakeries and take another route, how to have a treat only every third Tuesday rather than every time you actually want it, etc. It doesn't teach you how to listen to your body and what it signals you, but how to cheat it - eat soup, drink more water, eat raw vegetables - all the tricks of the old diet world.
Having said that, it's amusing and entertaining, but definitely not for girls who are trying to recover from an unhealthy relationship with food. It's another diet book (in the new form of "healthy eating" rather than crash diet rules).

1. Because this is not a diet book. It's a very well-informed, intelligently-written, very funny read that will enhance any bedside table, coffee table or loo shelf. 2. Mimi Spencer writes with a wit that makes you snort embarrassingly when reading her words on public transport. 3. She makes you want to read chunks of the book aloud to all your dearest friends. 4. She has created a smorgasbord of hints and tips that can work for anyone, anywhere, at whatever stage of life and girth. 5. This book makes you feel good about yourself. Really.

Format: Hardcover
Although this is marketed as a 'non-diet book', it is 100% a diet book. It gives lots of tips on food to eat, when to eat it, including fads such as don't eat carbs after 5pm. It is also aimed at those who enjoy thinking about absolutely everything they do from moment to moment, including every item of clothing, every way of moving and anything in between. Life is for living, isn't it?!

Format: Hardcover
This was not at all what I expected. I thought it was going to be about life being too short to diet and 101 other suggestions for what you could do - kind of like a fun 'to do' list, but it's just another diet book. Nothing in it that you haven't already read. Disappointing but completely accept that I misunderstood what it was about.

I have never read a diet book and can still say this is true. Dive into this book for a genuinely interesting, fact filled and hilarious read on not how to be thin, but how to be the best, most fabulous version of yourself. Here goes .......
