Note to self: Bitch status of Rory Freedman-negative.
People have expressed mixed feeling about the vegan diet book, Skinny Bitch, by authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin.
Some say it’s the greatest book on the shelf for going vegan, keeping healthy, and looking trim. Others have criticized it because they think it will give people the idea that going vegan is about losing weight or every person should aim to be skinny.
Freedman agrees people do have their assumptions, but says they’re usually not correct.
“I guess people who haven’t read the book might assume that I think women should be skinny, or that I’m a bitch, or that I’m hung up on my own weight,” Freedman told Ecorazzi.
“I’d want them to know that I could give two shits about how much I weigh, that I think full-figured women should rock their curves with pride, and that I’m generally a nice person. (When I have PMS, not so much.)”
What the gals were trying to get across in a spunky way was that a proper vegan diet can make anyone healthier, thus allowing them to reach the appropriate weight for themselves, which doesn’t always correspond to a size four.
Most importantly, they wanted everyone to know that Soda really is “liquid Satan” and only a “total moron” would do the Atkins diet to get thin.
Skinny Bitch launched several other Skinny Bitches, including Skinny Bitch in a Box, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch: Kick-Ass Recipes for Hungry Girls Who Want to Stop Cooking Crap (and Start Looking Hot!), and Skinny Bitch Fitness: Boot Camp to name a few.
And get ready for a booty call! The Skinny Bitch Dance workout DVD, Skinny Bitch: Booty Bounce, is set to be released in April.
