The author's direct, no-nonsense talk about what works and what doesn't makes for an entertaining take on a (literally) deadly serious subject - the ineffective-at-best, disastrous-at-worst methods being promoted for dieting and weight loss. Her oft-repeated point - that its fat woman want to lose, not weight - is buttressed by her extensive knowledge of nutritional and her more than twenty years of experience in the field. "Fries, Thighs, and Lies" is written to demystify what Arneson refers to as myth-information, from the food pyramid (beware, she says, its making us fat) and the amount of water we should drink to the wrongheaded low-carbohydrate, high protein craze. There's no technical jargon to wrestle down here and gone are any traces of new, confusing-to-learn terms. Just easy-to-access, easily understood information, insights, hints and tips to empower the reader in her battle against the bulge. Added to this self-help treasure trove are case histories of people who found success by following Arneson's programme for them. A detailed glossary expands on subjects in the book and includes precise, helpful food logs for intakes of 800 to 2,100 calories daily.
This short, pithy book doesn't waste your time, but it will help you waste your excess fat.
