Quattro Fromaggi

I’ve been doing pretty well with reducing my daily intake of dairy products. I haven’t had any ice cream since the last post, but I did find myself in the frozen foods isle the other day with my nose pressed against the Tillamook ice cream display.

The other day I ate a delicious bowl of chocolate peanut butter Tillamook ice cream.

Get Skinny, Bitch

Fortunately, this book is not just about giving up meat and animal products, though the authors do push hard for you to become vegan. This book straight up tells you all the stuff that you don’t want to hear about the shit you’ve been shoveling into your body: all the naughty little secrets hiding in the four-inch-eight-point-font ingredient list of your Nabisco Oreos. And the women are no-whining-allowed-, no-excuses-taken bitches. They tell you things like “don’t be a fat pig anymore” and “stop being a pussy.” Don’t expect hand-holding because you won’t get it.

The best part is–and you really feel it as you’re reading–they want you to look good too. There’s profanity, there’s attitude, there’s even bitchyness, but it all comes from a real and supportive place. It’s tough love and it’s refreshing not to have somebody blowing smoke up your ass.
