Amazon Kindle Best Selling Weight Loss Book

WTF am I supposed to eat? is the runaway best seller that will challenge everything you think you know about losing weight and eating healthy. Part obsessive dieter’s manifesto, part smart-ass common sense, WTF am I supposed to eat? is insightful, refreshing, and motivating—the kick in the ass that you need to stop listing to everyone else, and start doing what is right for you.

“I’ve spent a lifetime sifting through a sea of weight loss information and misinformation, all tangled up in knots; it is my mission to unravel the mess and search for WTF is the truth, and WTF is total bullshit.” -C.J. English

WTF am I supposed to eat? is not a scientific proclamation of facts, although there are plenty throughout. There are also pieces of bullshit scattered here and there to see if you’re still paying attention, analyzing carefully, and asking yourself what will work for me?

WTF am I supposed to eat? is loaded with smart-ass advice from a smart-ass chick who generally knows what she’s talking about.

FIVE STARS! “Facts, answers, ideas and solutions simmered to perfection in a fun an engaging way! I predict a best-seller!

FIVE STARS! “This book is hilarious, smart and talks TO you, not AT you. It helps you decide what is best for you and how to maintain balance in your life. I plan on gifting this book to each of the ladies in my office... I can't wait to share recipes with them and wine. DON'T FORGET THE WINE! –FMABookReviews

FIVE STARS! “Reading this book has literally blown my mind. WTF Am I Suppose To Eat has given me the exact tools I needed. I loved it, I am planning on re-reading this book several times, if not forever. She is honest and straightforward , she doesn't try to impress the reader with fancy, and complicated nutritional terms, or tries to push her believes down to anyone's throat.-Dee, WrappedUpInReading

5 AWESOME STARS! “Stop what you're doing right now, go on Amazon and order this book on PB! You won't regret it. This book should be on every kitchen counter, on every night stand and on every coffee table! If you've done it all and you don't know what else to do then look no further! It's refreshing, it's funny, it's relatable and it'll challenge your way of thinking. I plan on re-reading this book over and over again:)”
–SherTheFablousBookLover, Goodreads Reviewer

I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.

I started reading “WTF Am I Supposed to Eat?: A Dieter’s Manifesto” as I sat down to dinner with a frozen pizza and a glass of wine.

Up until last year when my life turned upside (again), I had been very conscious of my eating habits. I watched my portion control, stayed away from processed foods and gluten (for the most part) and ate quite a few veggies. Then life happened.

As well, After being a stay-at-home mom and working part-time for 17 years, I returned working full-time. Getting home at 6:30 pm every evening does not lend itself to healthy eating. UNLESS YOU PREPARE. And I have not been prepared.

Several things happened… I am always tired, I feel bloated and I’ve gained weight. I know I feel better when I eat “healthy” and I know what that looks like for me. But I always wondered if what made me feel better (and look better) was actually healthy or good for me.

Reading WTF AM I SUPPOSED TO EAT, provided me with validation, knowledge, and tools. I grew up thinking if I didn’t clear my plate, if I didn’t eat enough meat along with my veggies and a starch, I would get sick. Well, let me say, I am 5’0 and survived. But I have always struggled with my weight. I am the picture of a yo-yo dieter (or weight gainer/loser). What I liked so much about this book, was that its focus isn’t on LOSING weight. But on being HEALTHY. Sure, losing weight is mentioned, but it isn’t the focus. Which for me is key, because when I decided to take control of my life last time, it was about being healthy and feeling good, which consequently caused the pounds to drop.

CJ English told me it’s okay to only eat breakfast when I’M HUNGRY — which for me is about 4 hours after I wake up. She explained that I don’t need as much protein as I have been trained to believe, which is a relief because I enjoy just having veggies for a meal. I always had a rule that I didn’t eat after 7pm. I heard somewhere (probably Oprah) that you shouldn’t. Welp, guess what? CJ speaks on that too.

AND THE RECIPES! OMG, the smoothies are so freaking good! My boss just bought a Ninja to keep in our kitchen for us. We have frozen fruit and some other items to use, too. When I made the recipe for the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Banana Smoothie, I had 3 grown women moaning. I am sure the salesmen wondered, WTF we were doing?

This book is hilarious, smart and talks TO you, not AT you. It helps you decide what is best for you and how to maintain balance in your life. I plan on gifting this book to each of the ladies in my office (most of whom are health conscious and exercise regularly). I can’t wait to share recipes with them and wine. DON’T FORGET THE WINE!
