From Shape magazine's popular, young Weight-Loss Diary columnist comes a hilarious, sometimes heartwrenching look at the daily struggle of dieting.
In this frank and funny book, Courtney Rubin shares what she learned about dieting--and herself--in more than two years of chronicling her battle to keep food from consuming her life. As engaging as her famous column, The Weight-Loss Diaries is part memoir, part how-to, and always entertaining.
Along with anecdotes about binges, fashion fiascos, setbacks--and ultimate success, Rubin offers readers real-life advice, including:
Call a friend for support--but without using a cordless phone, to prevent roaming to the fridge
Resist one fattening food daily on vacation, so the self-discipline ball is rolling for the return home
Eat peanut butter--or any other food vices. This book explains why
Find a way to exercise regularly Most of all, this empowering book will remind readers they're not alone
