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.
An honest and brave account of what it feels like, day in and day out, often year in and year out, to try to lose a significant amount of weight, The Weight-Loss Diaries is:
An unashamed tale of binges, fashion fiascos, setbacks, and ultimate success; A light-hearted, laugh-out-loud look at the most ridiculous excuses for ending or cheating on a diet; A no-holds-barred account of the author's dark days of flirting with eating disorders and constantly calculating and recalculating calories.
With insight, humor, and courage, Rubin explores diet and food issues, as well as her self-sabotaging habits during dieting, in ways that everyone struggling with weight loss will find both instructive and inspiring.
