Jodi Lipper and Cerina Vincent – How to Eat Like a Hot Chick: Lose the Guilt, Find the Fabulous
Synopsis:
Sassy, irreverent and in-your-face, this is every hot chick’s guide to having your cake and eating it. Learn how to eat confidently, without any apologies, and still manage to look gorgeous. Originally a self-published success, How to Eat Like a Hot Chick will make every woman feel sexy and beautiful. It offers real-life examples on how to take pleasure in food without adhering to complicated diets or self-denial. In the style of the bestseller Skinny Bitch (except who wants the stress of being a vegan?), the authors take a hilarious, glam-girl, take-no-prisoners approach to looking and feeling your best. Hot chicks don’t deny themselves anything. Hot chicks don’t ever apologise. Hot chicks simply enjoy their food and learn to make the right choices every day so that they remain hot. Packed full of sassy wit and goodwill to spare, the authors reveal the secrets of what hot chicks really eat. From which cocktails will keep you light on your feet well past midnight, and exactly what you should (and shouldn’t) eat on a date to how to avoid pigging-out when you’re down in the dumps or hungover.The authors understand that sometimes you’re going to slip up – you’re only human after all, but their simple rule is that if you wolf down that big piece of chocolate cake ‘just know that you’ll be eating a ton of spinach for dinner’. Dozens of smart ideas and healthier food options, as well as lists of foods to avoid at all costs make How to Eat Like a Hot Chick every girl’s best friend. Slimming down and loving yourself is easier (and more fun) than you ever thought possible.

Review:
This is a shining example of self publishing being picked up by a publishing house and becoming a success. Lipper and Vincent have pitched the tone just right – the balance of seriousness versus lightheartedness is spot on, and the advice is all common sense.

To be honest, most of the information will already be well known to established “dieters”, but this is presented not as a diet, but as a way of life that can be maintained with minimal effort. It does have some jargony phrases, one or two of which are a little annoying on occasion, for example, repeated talk of “this is your heyday” reminded me distinctly of Miss Jean Brodie in her Prime, but it’s enough of a fun and easy read that it doesn’t bother one too much as you flip the pages.

The best thing about Eating Like a Hot Chick is that it extols the virtues of having a little bit of what you fancy – nothing is out of bounds, providing you follow up a lunchtime binge on chocolate cake with a pound of spinach for dinner! It also points out that starving yourself is, as we already knew, not Hot – Hot Chicks enjoy their food!
