Publisher Description

A GMA SUMMER MUST-READ! From the bestselling authors of The Knockoff, an outrageously funny novel about one woman's attempt—through clay diets, naked yoga, green juice, and cultish workout classes—to win back her career, save her best friend, and lose thirty pounds.

"When Janey Sweet … navigates topless yoga and ruthless cycling classes in Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza's satire, she realizes she’s better off without the green juice."
Us Weekly


When Janey Sweet, CEO of a couture wedding gown company, is photographed in the front row of a fashion show eating a bruffin--the delicious love child of a brioche and a muffin--her best friend and business partner gives her an ultimatum: lose thirty pounds or lose your job. Sure, Janey has gained some weight since her divorce, and no, her beautifully cut trousers don't fit like they used to, so Janey throws herself headlong into the world of the fitness revolution, signing up for a shockingly expensive workout pass, baring it all for Free the Nipple yoga, and spinning to the screams of a Lycra-clad instructor with rage issues. As Janey eschews carbs, pays thousands of dollars to wellness gurus, and is harassed by her very own fitness bracelet, she can't help but wonder: Did she really need to lose weight in the first place?

A funny and easy read

Instantly interested in the story. It’s a funny and easy read. I would definitely recommend to any of my girlfriends.

Amazing!

I rented this at the library due to the funny synopsis and I am so glad I did! It’s a hilarious read that I couldn’t put down. The main character is well developed and the story line constantly gets better. The concept of the book is incredibly relateable to this day and age, I even found myself guilty of committing a few of these diet crimes. 5 stars, would highly recommend.
