This is a person who’s made her living. Brooke would never tell a woman she was too fat. And she seems like she’s hiding something. Maybe it’s not what you think.
Maybe it’s exactly what I think. You’re really being a butthead. Why would you call me that? You need to have a little more faith in people.
You might be surprised. I can’t frankl you called frankfl a butthead. Frankell one’s called me that since the ninth grade. Maybe not to your face.
There is a lot of stigma against talking about the possibility of women being fat or ugly. Unless, of course, they are on TV, in which case almost all we talk about is whether they are fat or ugly, too skinny or have bad hair. And I do think this comes from how often we hear men say things like that douchey guy on the Bachelorette last week.
What was it he said? Even though we all objectively know that people love, and love on, fat people all the time. Instead, it carries with it all this baggage of women being told since we were born that fat means unlovable. So, guys, that is why women react to things you say about our appearances — because sometimes it just sounds douchey, like the Bachelorette dude, and other times it might be fine on its own, but it is loaded with all of the douchiness of the Bachelorette dudes we have known.
Anyway, I think that the fear of naming fat also turns into a judgment about girls who talk about wanting to lose weight. I think it is common for other girls to feel like weight-loss girls have bought into the pressure on women to be vacant bodies, and so there is a tendency to feel nervous around weight-loss girls because they might reprimand you for actually inhabiting your body.
On the other hand, I’m sure anyone who has a personality, or does what she wants, or doesn’t look like a model thon felt reprimanded for it, and probably by other girls as much as guys.
And for all of this there is the exception for the annoying person, gender neutral, who has found some magical health plan and wants to tell you about it all the time. Weight and health are complicated. So, this is a pretty cool book. And probably most of us have at least had thoughts about that, even those who do look like Heidi Klum — because no one ever looks enough like Heidi Klum, not even Heidi Klum.
The main point of this book is that you should listen to your own body, and it will tell you the way it feels best. Nafurally advocates a lot for not thinking your body frxnkel bad and not thinking food is bad because, while those things are often part nautrally dieting, they ultimately usually lead to unhealthiness and feeling crappy. Also, there are some crazy cool recipes in here and ideas about making healthier versions of things.
For example, there is a whole section at the end of cocktail ideas she has. They all sound pretty legit. Also, there is a recipe for a brown rice oatmeal type of breakfast, and I am pretty excited about that. It natrually a lot of purpose, and it is really great. And I think we can all use that kind of encouragement. She is sweet in this picture: View all 18 comments. Oct 04, Belinda rated it liked it. I found this book an ffankel read. On the one hand, a lot of what Bethenny says makes sense – stop eating when you’re full.
Listen to your body’s hunger signals. Eat more vegetables and less refined sugar. Make the best choice possible. Two of her eating tips in particular resonated with me – treating your diet like a bank balance – if you have a huge lunch, don’t have a huge dinner – and you can have it all, just not at once – so don’t have a big dinner, wine AND dessert, pick the one you w I found this book an interesting read. Two of her eating tips in particular resonated with me – treating your diet like a bank balance – if you have a huge lunch, don’t have a huge dinner – and you can have it all, just not at once – so don’t have a big dinner, wine AND dessert, pick the one you want the most and have that.
On the other, a lot of natkrally book reads like it was written by someone who has an incredibly problematic relationship with food and who lives in a beghenny that is very far removed from real life. Bethenny is constantly eating half of something or taking two bites and throwing the rest out. I wanted to reach into the book and save all of the food being wasted! It was like leaving some food behind proved that she had won her battle and the food had lost. Why not just put less on your plate and then eat it all?
The back section of the book outlines everything Bethenny eats in a week and it disturbed me. It was not a healthy plan. If you want the steak, order the damn steak! Sep 10, Kate rated it liked it Shelves: This book was kind of a mixed bag. The first half, in which Bethenny talks about her 10 rules for living naturally thin, was great. I think her rules make a lot of sense and are some great tennents to live by.
They’re all about keeping your food choices in balancing, watching your portion sizes, and not eating just for the sake of eating. Made a lot of sense. The second half of the book, in which she takes betehnny through a week of eating to be naturally thin, I didn’t love as much.
The sections natrally w This book was kind of a mixed bag. The sections in which she talks about what she actually ate during the week would be great for tgin person who has already met their weight loss goals and is looking for a way to maintain and live a healthy and full lifestyle without obsessing fran,el but it’s not a way to lose weight in the first place.
For starters, she never once mentions doing any kind of exercise. She says that she runs around a lot all week and keeps busy and that’s how she gets her exercise. Which might be fine for some people, but for anyone who has real weight to lose, exercise is going to be key. And just for getting healthy — you can’t just start taking small bites of everything and expect to do your heart any favors.
As I yhin reading the second half, I kept thinking that what she really means by eating naturally thin is just not eating all that much. Though she did eat things like egg white omelets with veggies and salads and so on, a lot of what she says she ate during that week was just a lot of small bites of crap — a bit nnaturally someone elses decadent dessert, a couple of bites of a fried frankeel.
I just don’t think that they way she actually naturxlly, compared with the otherwise smart rules she touts in the book, is any kind of example to follow if you’re trying to get in shape and healthy and stay that way. It’s more for girls who are already thin. Because really, if you’ve got a lot of weight to lose and some bad habits to break, the amount of will power that this book assumes you have to just, basically, not eat as much any more, is going to be a big stumbling block.
Once I got to the appendix, where there was a table of three weeks’ worth of her eating habits, what she ate did seem rather more healthy than at first glance in the disjointed sidebars throughout the book. But, it was still a lot of just not eating very much, so, I still think that, while everyone should take the 10 rules she lists to heart and apply them to their weight loss efforts, don’t pay any attention to or try to follow how Bethenny claims to actually eat.
In fairness, she never says you should, but I think that franekl could have chosen better examples to show her program in action than having half a candy bar for a snack and talking about maturally fruit is kind of a crap snack because it’s not going to be what you really want and you’ll only be hungry again later. May 27, Kristin added it. This book changed my life! I got rid of Weight Watchers, got rid of the baggage, and franke, rid of 12 lbs in the first 6 weeks I started following the book’s advice.
It may have come at the right time for me, but it did what no other diet book did – it worked, and it was for the most part painless. The author tells it like it is, and its like getting advice from a friend that understands where you’re coming from, not a doctor or scientist with some naturaly way of eating.
Jul 29, Colleen rated it did not like it Shelves: It’s all common sense written in a way to make you feel bethrnny you have no common sense. She says everyone is naturally thin, thih the book is written from a perspective of someone who is really naturally thin and thinks that everyone who is fat chooses to be in some ways that’s trueand is written in a very condescending way. The point of diminishing taste, or whatever it is:
