My Fat Little Rule Book
4+ star humor/motivation/weight loss
The author, Jacquie Somerville, is equally crazy about both food and fashion, and, as many women can attest, these two passions usually cannot peacefully coexist. I mean, how does one reconcile Gucci with Gorgonzola, and Dolce & Gabbana with dulce de leche? It’s a dilemma…until now.
Jacquie wrote My Fat Little Rule Book as a guide for herself, and it contains the 15 rules she developed that allowed her to achieve her goal weight. Jacquie doesn’t claim to be a health, fitness, or diet expert; rather, this is a book about her journey – it is her first-hand account of the pressure to look fabulous in Prada while salivating over prosciutto.
A highly entertaining account of her 35-day diet and exercise plan, My Fat Little Rule Book includes Jacquie’s irreverent and humorous musings on everything from clothing and cuisine, to lust and motivation. Weaving raw and hilarious personal journal entries with the 15 rules and their accompanying – and shockingly honest – postscript notes, Jacquie weaves a delightful read that many women (and men) will relate to. No gimmicks, no tricks, just plain common sense advice on how to lose the weight.
The work is also full of surprises, particularly when the reader realizes this book isn’t only about Marc Jacobs and mousse cake, but rather, it goes much deeper, digging into the importance of setting goals and how achieving – or not achieving – them can impact one’s sense of self-worth.
