Review of Skinny Bitch: Should be called Stupid Bitches


Posted on May 2nd, 2011 by Jeff Thiboutot M.S.

A few clients recently mentioned the book Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin (1). One of them uses this book as support for her vegan lifestyle. As I often do, I headed to the library and picked-up a copy to see what the authors had to say. Wow! This book is basically a collection of the popular vegan/vegetarian nonsense statements from a number of popular vegan/vegetarian based books with a good dose of in-your-face attitude (this is discussed further below). These ladies (the authors) state that “Skinny Bitch delivers the truth about food, so that you can make intelligent decisions for yourself” (p.10). The truth? The amount of misleading and blatantly false statements in this book is staggering! I will highlight some of the most egregious bullshit they call the truth. As you can probably guess, I would not recommend this book. If you would like more details on why it’s not worth your time or money then keep reading.

 

Before proceeding I want to give you a WARNING: There will be some strong language, some f-bombs and so forth that will be sprinkled throughout my comments. Much of the profanity will be quotes from the book. I don’t have a problem with the use of such words. But, for those that may be offended by them I wanted to give the warning. Seeing the ladies want to play hard-ball, I thought I would use some similar language to describe their moronic statements. It is a good opportunity to be a bit more edgy than usual.

 

I will start with some quotes from the book to help give some context.

 

  • “It’s time to prance around in your thong like you rule the world. It’s time to get skinny.”(p.10)
  • “Health = skinny. Unhealthy = fat” (p.11)
  • “But being a fat pig will hinder you, sober or drunk” (p.12)
  • “Hence, bloated fat pig syndrome”
  • “They don’t fucking drink it”(p.14)
  • “You might be fat because you don’t poop enough” (p.14)
  • “Caffeine is for pussies” (p.15)
  • “Chemical shit storm” (p.18)
  • “You need to exercise you lazy shit” (p.20)
  • “We have to fuck up the rest of the world too, for a dime.” (p.29)
  • “Don’t shit or piss yourself” (p.31)
  • “Because we are having so much fun let’s bash the shit out of Splenda” (p.35)
  • “You will be a fat, unhealthy, bloated pig if you live this way” (p.40)

I am only at page 40 of about 200 pages and you can get a sense of how the authors are trying to get their points across. There are many more statements similar to these found throughout the book. Okay, you want to give it to us straight with no bullshit! For some people that works great. But, at least do your homework and get a fucking clue of what you are talking about.

 

I feel a bit overwhelmed; there is so much bullshit I am not sure where to begin and what to cover. The thing is much of the false or misleading information presented in this book and other vegan and raw-food based books and websites have been well refuted many times before, such as in The Vegetarian Myth by Keith, a lot of good articles at the Weston A Price Foundation website, and at the Primal Wisdom blog, to name a few. Not to mention the basic texts for anatomy and physiology, anthropology, and biochemistry to get a good understanding of how the body works and what foods will allow it to function the best. With that in mind I will start with an overview of what the authors used for support.

 

As I do with all non-fiction books I look to see what method the author used to support the statements made in the book. I noticed right away that the authors used in-text numerical citations. “Great!” I thought at first. But my excitement quickly abated. Of the 226 citations (sounds impressive), there was only ONE citation to a peer-reviewed article and ONE reference to a nutrition textbook. So what was used for the additional 224 citations? The remainder of citations are to popular vegan/vegetarian books and websites. Here is a brief list of some of the sources that were cited many times;

 

  • The pH Miracle: Balance your Body by Young
  • Fit for Life I & II by the Diamonds
  • Ecuremelife.com
  • Livrite.com
  • Eat to Live by Fuhrman
  • Conscious Eating by Cousens
  • Diet for a New America by Robbins
  • PolyMVAsurvivors.com
  • PCRM.org
  • Milksucks.com
  • Peta.org

Having a few citations to these types of materials is not so bad, but having virtually ALL of the citations to this type of evidence is bullshit. These ladies say they are going to “deliver the truth about food” (p.10) and then use these types of references to support their positions. Have these women not heard of the PubMed or Google scholar? If they are going to give it to us hard and straight then they should have some damn good support for their statements. As these ladies would like to say, what a fucking joke! I will start with what I think is the authors’ thesis statement.

 

The authors feel that eating animal products of any kind, as well as any ingestion of coffee/caffeine, artificial sweeteners or any food additives, any processed foods (i.e., white flour, HFCS, etc) and having an acid pH (caused from the aforementioned items) is what makes people fat and inhibits them from getting skinny. Believe it or not, I actually agree with them on a few points. I agree that processed carbohydrates, full sugar sodas or any sugary beverages play a role in gaining weight and inhibiting weight loss. I also agree with them about how most animals are raised for food is inhumane and it is likely to be directly or indirectly unhealthy for us. I also agree that the FDA and the USDA are not doing a very good job when it comes to regulating how food is manufactured/grown/handled. It does seem, because of the conflicts of interest, it is like the fox guarding the hen house. However, there is way too much emphasis placed on this aspect. Additionally, even though I agree with a couple of things it still does not excuse them from not supporting their statements with quality information. With that being said let’s explore a few of the statements that really made me say “You must be fucking kidding me”!

 

The bullshit starts quickly, the second sentence of the first chapter the authors state “You need to get healthy if you want to be skinny. Healthy = skinny. Unhealthy = fat.” (p.11). That sounds nice, but is it really true? They give no reference for this assertion, not even to one of their lame sources. Are they saying there are not a bunch of skinny unhealthy people? Or that there are not a bunch of people with 20 or 30 extra pounds that aren’t healthy? Really? I think they are making a ridiculous statement. People can be healthy at a fairly wide range of bodyweights. However, it does seem that being very heavy (BMI greater than 30) or very thin (BMI under 18) is connected to greater morbidity and earlier mortality rates(2). But, the question is; is it the weight itself or certain behaviors that are the true cause of the problems associated with higher or lower bodyweights? There seems to be good evidence that both can be playing a causative role (2). So as nice and simple as their statements sounds, there really is no merit for it. Yes, the ultimate goal should be to be relatively lean and healthy at the same time, but the two are not dependent variables so they can occur separately.

 

Moving onto the second page of the first chapter, “why do you think when kids go away to college they gain the ‘freshman fifteen’?” (p.12). The “freshman fifteen” is really an urban myth. This topic has actually been studied and the average weight gain is 5lbs (3).

 

Next the authors go on a rant about Aspartame. Basically they say it can cause “a slew of scary maladies” (p.14). I am not a big fan of this particular artificial sweetener. Matt and I cover this in our book. Basically there is evidence for some potential negative reactions to this chemical but all the scare mongering is way over the top. Of course they do not supply any quality evidence for their statements.

 

Here is a good one “You might be fat because you don’t poop enough” (p.14). Are they really saying that a person that has 10, 20, 30 or more pounds of extra bodyfat just needs to take a big shit? You must be kidding me. There is absolutely no evidence that constipation leads to bodyfat gain or inhibits fat loss. We are talking about the residues of digestion that are in the colon. This residue can build up but there seems to be a maximum capacity of a few pounds (4). So, yes, a good dump my help you lose a pound or two but that’s it. Now there is some recent evidence connecting the bacteria in the digestive tract and bodyweight, but that is really a different aspect and one that they were not talking about.

 

They then go on a rant about coffee and caffeine. They state “Coffee is for pussies” (p.15). But some soy chemical concoction or a nice big glass of juice (sugar) is healthy? What a joke. They state “One study even links caffeine to an increase susceptibility to diabetes” (p.15). They did give a citation for this statement. Ya! Do you think it is to the actual study? Of course not, that would be silly. The citation is to an article that was on CBC Health & Science News. That is fucking ridiculous. Why mention the study and not give the citation to the fucking study? My head hurts! Anyway, Matt and I cover coffee and caffeine in some detail in our book and found that the benefits for most people clearly outweighs any negatives if used at reasonable dosages(2).

 

The discussion of coffee leads to one about acid foods and pH balance. They state “Acid foods cause your body to produce fat cells, in order to keep the acid away from the organs” (p.16). The citation for this stupid statement is to The pH Miracle by Young. The whole acid/alkaline thing is an interesting aspect of food but how it is portrayed here and in similar books is faulty on many aspects. Basically they state that all animal products, coffee (regular or decaf), all artificial sweeteners, and refined sugars are acid forming so they are bad for us. Of course there is not quality evidence for their statements. If you are interested in this topic see the following references (5). Additionally, it is interesting that they do not mention that grains and most legumes are acid forming, including soy and tofu even though they state “Other alkalizing foods are sea vegetables, miso, soybeans, and tofu” (p.38).

 

Here is another gem, “…working out tends to keep our junk food cravings and elephant appetites at bay” (p.21). Is there a citation for this statement? Nope. I think they pulled this one out of their skinny asses. There is an extensive amount of research on the topic of exercise and appetite and it is clear they have not read it. I have yet to see that exercising controls junk food cravings and whether it increases or decreases appetite depends on a number of variables (6).

 

We are now entering Chapter 2- Carbs: The Truth. What great insights can we get from this chapter? How about “[carbs] are vital for providing energy for our bodies and brains. Without them we would be comatose zombies” (p.23). Obviously the authors are not aware of the fact that we humans do not need to ingest carbohydrates to be able to function. Not that it is bad to eat carbs, but the fact is we can function very well on fats and ketones (2). In fact, athletes can still perform at a high level on a very low carb, high fat diet (7). As usual these authors are perpetuating the “we have to have carbs” myth. This one must have slipped past their Tofu Truth Detector.

 

The authors then state “simple carbohydrates suck and are as nutritionally beneficial as toilet paper” (p.23) and go on to say “complex carbohydrates are comprised of starch and fiber and release gradually, providing a steady source of energy…Shitty simple carbohydrates include white flour, white pasta (duram semolina), white rice, and white sugar” (p.23). Then a couple of pages later they state “Fruit is, quite possibly, the most perfect food in existence”(p.25). As usual they are saying a bunch of nonsense and making a very obvious non-sequitor argument. When it comes to the speed of carbohydrate digestion, using the complex vs. simple aspects is antiquated. We have known since the 1980’s that the speed at which a carbohydrate-based food will be digested and affect blood sugar is determined by a number of factors. Have these women not heard of the Glycemic Index (GI)? For example a white potato, which is composed of complex carbohydrates, gets digested very quickly, having a Glycemic Index of 95. Opposingly, the simple sugar fructose has a GI of 20. Based on their statement “Shitty simple carbohydrates…” we could conclude that they are clueless as to what simple carbohydrates are. White flour, white pasta, and white rice are NOT simple carbohydrates. These items are made up of COMPLEX carbohydrates. These items are processed carbohydrates. Finally, their statement about fruit is just silly. How can they say on the one hand “simple carbohydrates suck” and then say “ Fruit is, quite possibly, the most perfect food in existence”? Fruits are made up of simple carbohydrates. Therefore, based on their statement, fruits suck. That’s funny. I don’t really think fruits suck, but they certainly are not even close to the most perfect food in existence. Related to this is their information pertaining to the sweetener agave syrup (see additional post about sweeteners). They state, “At the top of our list [for healthy sweetener options] is agave nectar or syrup” (p.30). At the top of their list? Why? They say it is good because it is “natural” and it digests slowly. Do they know why it digests slowly? It does because it is almost pure fructose. There is plenty of evidence that fructose, natural or not, has the potential to cause numerous health problems and can be a hindrance to fat loss (2).

 

We now get to the chapter on why animal products are the reasons for our weight problems and really all of our illnesses. The title of the chapter “The Dead, Rotting, Decomposing Flesh Diet” (p.39). Sounds very scary. Here is how they start the chapter, “The Atkins diet. Hmm. Eat the flesh of dead cows, dead pigs, and dead chickens. Avoid fresh fruit. You are a total moron if you think the Atkins diet will make you thin” (p.39). These ladies are certainly giving it to us straight; straight bullshit. that is! The level of ignorance or maybe stupidity in these couple of sentences is staggering. Would they prefer we eat LIVE cows, pigs, or chickens? Kidding. There are dozens of studies that show that lower carbohydrate or ketogenic diets can elicit fairly rapid fat loss as well as lead to significant improvements in numerous health markers (2). Not to mention the work of Dr. Price, Dr. Lindeberg and others that have clearly shown that a number of groups following an omnivorous diet (one that includes dead animals or the milk of live ones) have a high level of health (8). Humans are clearly omnivorous animals. Our anatomy and physiology dictates that we should be consuming both plant and animal foods (9).

 

I have barely scratched the surface, I am only on page 39, and have not highlighted all of the asinine statements made by the authors, and my head hurts. The post is already fairly long and those of you reading it probably get the gist of the problem. Because I don’t want to waste too much time on this one post I won’t continue explaining all of the glaring fuck-ups that are found throughout the book and will try to wrap it up in a few more paragraphs.

 

One final thing before concluding; throughout the book the authors make it very clear that being “skinny” (whatever that means because they never define it) is the Golden Ticket to health. Remember this statement,

 

“Health = skinny. Unhealthy = fat” (p.11)

 

It seems clear to me that the authors’ main goal is to help us all get skinny by eating a vegan diet. However, on the LAST page of the book they had this to say;

 

“P.S. Wait! We have a confession to make. We really couldn’t care less about being skinny. Don’t get scared or upset; you will definitely lose weight if you adopt the Skinny Bitch lifestyle. However, our real hope is for you to become healthy…” (p.224)

 

Did I really just read that? Statement after statement throughout the book was referring to being fat as bad/unhealthy and getting skinny as being healthy. Yes, they mentioned many times that their recommendations for eating would also (not) get you healthy. But, again, the gist was to stop fucking around and kidding yourself, eat how we tell you and you will lose weight and be skinny. Remember this statement “It’s time to prance around in your thong like you rule the world. It’s time to get skinny.”(p.10) Talk about doublespeak. I think they are trying to have their Tofutti and eat it to (probably a bad joke). Also, why put this at the end? Wouldn’t it be more honest to put this disclaimer at the beginning of their nonsense?

 

So The Skinny Bitch is a #1 New York Times bestseller. How can that be? Regrettably, like many other books, it’s more about marketing and not about the quality of information. In this situation you have two attractive women with attitude. It makes sense that many people wanting to lose weight would find these attributes to be alluring. Is that really what it takes? Can people not look a bit deeper and be a bit more critical/skeptical when choosing whom to believe? There is no doubt I am a bit jaded because I think Matt and I have written a very good book, but it has not gotten close, yet, to reaching such a large number of people. I think this is a likely trend as some other authors that have put together some great information, such as Anthony Colpo, Alan Aragon, Uffe Ravnskov, to name a few, do not reach the top of the New York Times bestseller list even though their books deserve to be there.

 

At this point it is no secret that I think this book is a big pile of dung. This does not mean that they didn’t say anything useful or factual. But, as a whole, this book is not worth your money or time (even getting it free at the library). Your money and time could be used on much better material.

I referenced SPEED a number of times instead of given all of the citations about a specific aspect. I did this because Matt and I already did all referencing in the book.

    Although I have yet to read the book in question, I did enjoy your review. Interesting phrase
    ” a big pile of dung”.

  2. Leslie says:

    OMG! I laughed so hard Jeff! Thanks for that! :)

  3. Sylvia Liney says:

    Sorry, guys, I read about a 3rd of your article, & I get the message, but as the font is so small, MY head was hurting after that much close scrutiny. I would like to refer you to another source of research. A book called Sweet Poison, and Sweet Poison:The Quit Plan. I bought the latter after hearing the authour, David Gillespie, interviewd on local radio (I’m in Sydney Oz)…..He did heaps of genuine research, and found that it’s fructose that makes us fat, being highly addictive, and over-riding our appetite controls the way it does. I lost 6.6 kilos in the 4 months leading up to Christmas 2010, but even tho’ I was good over the Holiday period, I found I was gradually putting it back on again, so it’s taken me another 4 months to lose what I gained, plus more, I am now 8 kilos down. I haven’t been this low for 18 odd years, so I’m happy. I had to ‘tweak’ my food intake to limit my bread & potatos intake, (that works for me) Obviously back in Sept, I gave up 99% of sugar. Now I’m trying to give up Splenda! The other alternative is Stevia, which in Oz is very expensive, & I can’t afford it. I’ve also got my coffee intake down to 1 teasspoon of freeze dried stuff per day, which has lessened my hot flushhes considerably. I will say one thing, though, It’s very tempting to fight fire with fire, but then you just drag yourself down to their level, by using swear words. I’m definitely no prude, and swear myself, but it doesn’t look so good in print, and does you no favours. I do hear your anger, though, and it’s a great marketing tool to get people to read your book, among other things. After reading all the stuff I get sent me on the Web, you can’t help but be a little cynical. Please look into my recommended book, it’s on the Net, just Google Sweet Poison. I love reading your articles, can’t afford the book at this present time, but am hoping to get as little more financial soon & will do so.
    Good luck, and thanks for spreading the word, & the Love!!

    Great to read this review. I had picked up a copy of ‘Skinny Bastard’ in the airport cuz it looked interesting and had some good hook lines. I had recently become immersed in primal philosophy and of course found that this was 180 degrees away. I was able to use some common sense and wade thru the various issues, but it’s great to have some actual experts weigh in (no pun). I’ve got a niece who went bonkers vegetarian after reading ‘skinny bitches’ –after about 18 mos she finally came around to a more reasonable ( balanced) perspective. Great work, guys!

  6. Kelsey says:

    You guys don’t know shit about shit. I had some SEVERE secondhand embarrassment for you while reading this article. As a wellness professional who has studied over 100 different dietary theories, I can tell you with 100% certainty that there are many dietary theories in circulation that have been scientifically proven to work that are perfect opposites of other dietary theories that have also been scientifically proven to work. Because of bio-individuality, or the idea that every person’s body is different and therefore reacts differently to food, no single diet is the solution to “evidence-based weight loss” of whatever the fuck you guys claim to be talking about on this pathetic website.

    Before you start bashing other people for not doing their research, why don’t you start doing some of your own?

  7. J-hubbs says:

    You didn’t, but don’t bother with reason. Sounds like someone’s imbibed the Kool-Aid…or Stevi-aid…
    Second-hand embarrassment? Get the Hell outta here with that nonsense. Anyone defending this waste of paper should be ashamed. I knew within the first few random pages I read that it was bunk.

  8. Sophia says:

    This review is great reading since Skinny Bitch really need some good criticism. Not just because of the massive vegan scare tactics wich could be written by PETA, or my boyfriend’s ignorant little sister (a 15 year old vegan). But also I find it quite repulsive due to the amount of statements similar to the ones found on any pro-ana webpage. Such as “You will be a fat, unhealthy, bloated pig if you live this way” and several other statments refering to bloating and pig… ism. I have myself been treated for eating disorders in the past and really do think this clinging to health by refusing certain food groups is just a big fat excuse for nourishing an unhealthy vision on physique eating. Used by far too many young girls and women.

    • Frankie says:

      oh how ignorant of you sophia! vegan scare tactics ? wtf is that? and I don’t like peta either, but of course all the narrow minded people like you instantly make an assumption that some affiliate of peta happened to write the book. you’re an idiot.

  9. J-Hubbs says:

    Calling someone else an idiot over the Internet while displaying a total lack of reading comprehension… do you know what irony is? And you don’t know what vegan scare tactics are? How about telling people meat rots inside them among all their other lies? What else would you call spreading bald-
    faced, blatant falsehoods? Are you a child? Sophia is narrow-minded you say … pot or kettle. Take your pick.

    • Shanna says:

      herzlichen glückwunsch und alles gute zum hochzeitstag, euch beiden! bei so einer aktion hört der spass wirklich auf. ich wäre auch stinksauer geworden und hätte dem der's angezettelt hat sicher die freundschaft gekündigt. bei meiner hochzeit seinerzeit gab's keine scherze, meine freunde wissen aber auch, dass ich ziemlich &qltu;htmoruos&quoo; bin. lieben gruß von sabine

  10. Kelly says:

    All I can say after reading this review is that there is way more bullshit in this review than there is in Skinny Bitch. I also suggest that you follow a study on anatomy; one that isn’t based on the bullshit propaganda spread by the meat & dairy industry and maybe try to read better next time; since most of your “why do they write this???” arguments are actually answered in the book a few pages later. I could rant forever about this reviews’ bullshit and the igorance of the authors of this review, but I guess that wouldn’t change anything.

    • Jeff Thiboutot M.S. says:

      thanks for your reply Kelly,
      I am curious if you read my entire post?
      Also,what specific points did you not agree with? Was it about the authors NOT supporting their points with anything resembling quality evidence?
      Was it with me using quality references to support my points?
      Was I just not very nice in how I pointed out all their stupid shit?
      So what “bullshit” did I say.
      Please respond with quality evidence to support your points.

      • J-Hubbs says:

        Quality evidence? You already know that ain’t hap’nin, brother. Typical illogical, unsupported Kool-Aid-Vegan argument. I mean, what facts can they really cite to support their assertions?

  11. […] “little known fact”,  usually with NO quality evidence in support it (see Slow Burn, Skinny Bitches, and the Tone It Up girls for examples). We feel compelled to point this shit out because it is so […]

  12. blub says:

    Thank you so much for this review. I haven’tread skinny bitch and I doubt I ever will. But one of my closest friends has read it and is now bombarding me with all the “facts” she has learned from the book. She has also become a vegetarian because of the book.

    Now, I have nothing against vegetarians, but at least other vegetarian friends of mine don’t harras me with “evidence” of what I’m eating is toxic. From the first time she mentioned the book I knew it wasn’t scientific at all (the title says enough).
    I myself do scientifc research on a daily basis since I’m in university, and if I citated my papers like the writers of skinny bitch did, I would fail all of my classes.
    I have nothing against their writing style, but the scare tactics they use and all of their false evidence just annoys me. My friend is annoying me with it too. Especially the thing about fructose. She didn’t believe me when I said that fructose is just as “bad” as white sugar.

    This book is creating more and more condescending skinny bitches and it’s pissing me off.

    I’m glad that someone agrees with me and that this book is a pile of dung. And yes, I haven’t read it, so I really can’t form a funded oppinion, but I just wanted to blow off some steam because my skinny bitch friend thinks she knows everything about food and the meat industry since she read the book.

    I don’t know if you’ll still reply, but I do wonder, are the statements in this book about the food industry true? For example that milk is full of, to quote my friend “infection-bacteria from the utters of cows”, or is that all just badly citated non-sense as well?

    (ps: I must also appologize for my english. It’s not my mother-tongue so there probably are a lot of mistakes (grammar and spelling-wise. Please do not take that into account while reading my comment.)

  13. Leslie Seeley says:

    I loved your review, and I read SB over the weekend. I don’t have a problem with them not posting all the facts, because to tell you the truth, I don’t believe everything I read. I then do my own research, which is what I think this book was intended for..other than to promote being a vegan. They made comments, I looked up a lot of info, made my own choice as to how I wanted to clean up my food intake. They make a lot of good points, as do you. I will be picking up your book, I hope it is as entertaining as SB..they at least made me laugh out loud and made me think..thats what its all about..we as people need to make our own decisions, do the research and follow through.

  14. When someone writes an piece of writing
    he/she keeps the image of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    Therefore that’s why this article is amazing.

    Thanks!
