Skinny Bitch

Megan gave me it to read today, I started reading it and after the first chapter I'm in love.
So expect to hear alot of quotes and facts over the coming weeks.
Let me give me my favorite snippets of chapter 1: Giving up.

You cannot keep eating the same shit and expect to get skinny. Or smoke.
So don't even try some pathetic excuse like, "But if I quit smoking, I'll gain weight." No one wants to hear it.
Cigarettes are for losers. They are so 1989 and totally uncool. Not only do they screw up your whole body chemistry, but they also kill your taste buds. It's no wonder you eat shit and garbage. Smoking's out give it up.

Then goes on to speak about alcohol, soda, diet soda, which freaked me out just a tad and finally caffeine:

"Don't talk to me until I've had my morning coffee." Uhm . . . Pathetic!
Coffee is for pussies. Think about how widely accepted it has become that people need coffee to wake up. You should not need anything to wake up. If you can't wake up without it, it's because you are either addicted to caffeine, sleep deprived, or a generally unhealthy slob.

Then lists a whole page of all the things caffeine causes and is linked/suspected to cause.

I can't wait to get to the section where they apparently diminish meat-eaters and the food industry.

Sorry but that placebo thing is actually science. Quantum physics.
All this just sounds like you're trying to become a critic... I'm completely happy with a bit of propaganda for the better of mankind. No cruelty to animals seems rather fucking good, obviously you would rather be a critical and negative person than to help a world with no fat people, no smokers too... you actually have no proof against them either... you're all talk and opinions.

Ah you make it sound so black and white. People respond differently to different things, I just hate the approach that those women took.
You have no proof for them either...a lot of the stuff they said was sensible but a lot of it made little sense too. I wasn't deliberately trying to be negative, it's just my opinion and view. You're never going to get everyone agreeing with you
