INTRODUCTION
IT’S A LIFESTYLE, NOT A DIET

Hey, hey!

Welcome to The Skinny Confidential lifestyle.

If you’re hoping for a blueprint on how to diet, you’re reading the wrong book.

Throughout these pages you won’t learn how to deprive yourself.

Diets are deceiving. At first they work swimmingly, but after a while, they catch up to you (and your ass).

The Skinny Confidential lifestyle is about balance, balance, balance and, ultimately, discovering a way to live a healthy, happy life.

Without the deprivation part.

I hope that after reading this book, you’ll have learned some tricks of the trade; have discovered healthy, easy recipes; and will recognize the importance of balance.

ULTIMATELY, MY GOALS ARE TO:

+ Change your relationship with exercise. I hope that you’ll compare exercise to brushing your teeth—it’s something you just do. Not a chore, but a healthy habit.
+ Introduce you to your new bestie: green juice.
+ Demonstrate how ignorance is definitely not bliss. Know what the hell you’re putting into your mouth.
+ And lastly, highlight the fact that living a healthy and happy life doesn’t need to be so hard.

Balance is key, babes.

Because let’s face it: We all want to have our cake and eat it, too!

xx,
