Twelve years after the vegan eating manual Skinny Bitch was published it is still Amazon’s 98th ranked book in the Health Fitness & Dieting/Women’s Health category.
While most Oprah-era self-help books coddled readers – authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin played drill sergeant.
If you think you can ‘eat cheeseburgers all day long and lose weight’ you’re delusional – they wrote.
Not only does meat make you fat ‘no matter how you slice it – it’s still a putrefying corpse’ they added.
How did they really feel?
Freedman and Barnouin similarly disparaged dairy products.
Dairy inundates your body with prolactin – somatostatin – melatonin – oxytocin – growth hormone – luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone – thyrotropin- releasing hormone – thyroid-stimulating hormone and 14 other unwanted hormones – they wrote.
That’s in addition to the fat – calories – cholesterol and in many cases antibiotics.
No wonder you’re fat and bloated – the authors pointed out––fat acceptance be damned.
