Most women are well aware that dieting (and the accompanying deprivation) is no way to lose weight. But you can't blame a girl for trying--after all, who doesn't want to be thinner, feel happier, and look fabulous? Mimi Spencer has spent most of her life surrounded by catwalks and ultrathin celebrities--and she's sick of dieting. So she created the anti-diet. Here, Spencer shares the tips, tricks and solutions that finally helped her lose those last few pounds, and shows women how to trim, flatter and accept every inch of their bodies. With ample doses of empathy and irreverence, she offers readers 101 figure-flattering tips, from choosing the right fashion to just saying no to fat traps and calorie pitfalls. Spencer's candid advice and relatable voice will keep readers entertained as they knock off a few pounds and learn how to love the skin they're in.--From publisher description.
