If you haven’t already heard about The Skinny Confidential, let me fill you in. The Skinny Confidential is a blog and book written by Lauryn Evarts. I’ve been a blog reader of Lauryn’s for a few years now, so when I found out she was writing a book, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Read one blog article and you’ll be drawn in to her no frills, say-it-like-it-is attitude. She doesn’t care what people think and she writes about topics that she’s passionate about, including her breast augmentation, jaw surgery, and kegel exercises (!!). Her blog and book are also filled with fitness tips, her favorite holistic products, an inside look at her travels, and much more.
Here are just a few reasons why her book is the bomb (dot) com.
1. The Chapter Names are Hilarious
When I first opened the book, I recognized that the chapter names are freaking awesome. Great first impression! Some of my favorites include Chapter 3 – Skinny Recipes That Will Change Your Freaking Life, Chapter 6 – Strength Training: Get it Right, Get it Tight, and Chapter 11 – Love Chub.
2. It’s Incredibly Easy to Read
Lauren’s book is formatted very similar to her blog. She breaks up the text in one to two sentence paragraphs, which makes it incredibly easy to read. Although I read the book in a day, I reference it frequently. It’s broken up in very distinct chapters with bold headlines, so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for.
3. The Photos are Gorgeous
This may seem strange, but I hate reading non-fiction books (especially cookbooks) without photos. I actually won’t even buy a cookbook if there is a lack of great photos. A huge high five goes to Basil Vargas, the photographer for this book. The photos are crisp, bright and colorful just like the photos Lauryn uses for her blog.
4. It’s Not a Bible of Rules to Follow
One thing I love about Lauryn is that we share a love for Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Side note: Bryan hates when I eat these because they turn my fingers red, and I complain about an hour later that my stomach hurts. But, boy are they yummy! Her book doesn’t tell you to give up all your favorite treats. It’s about moderation and portion control.
