"Last year, Melissa Milne asked 10,000 women how they feel about their bodies, weight, and food. The answers were shocking: more than 80 percent feel guilty after a decadent meal; nearly 60 percent have dieted down a dress size to appease a man; almost two-thirds say they have been body-shamed by another woman- and 50 percent would rather be skinnier than happier or smarter. These women are sick and tired of feeling bad while trying to lose weight. And Milne has the solution: Don't be perfect-just be Naughty. The Naughty Diet says screw guilt and pass the wine. It's the anti-diet, breaking the traditional rules of dieting so women can be free to lose weight without losing themselves. By the end of the program, you'll be able to stop counting calories, master your cravings, banish negative thoughts, eat with pleasure, and be the healthiest, happiest you. "--
"Melissa Milne is sick and tired of being good. She bets that you are, too. Like you, she's spent her entire life being told how to look, what to eat and when to exercise by the Three M's: men, the media, and--that harshest critic of all--herself. And for most of her life, she listened to them, because--well, like you, she wanted to look hot. Smoking hot. Angelina hot! Or at least to feel hot. Especially in that dress. And so we diet. And cheat. And diet again. And quit. And finally, we cry, usually in front of an all-day Housewives marathon. What keeps us on this treadmill, going back for more? It's guilt, capital G--the self-hating, cuticle-picking, old-pajama-wearing, Haagan-Dazs-at-one-a.m. binging Guilt. Guilt makes us want to be good. And that's exactly why Milne says you should be Naughty. The Naughty Diet says screw guilt and pass the wine. It's the anti-diet diet, breaking the traditional rules of dieting--and all their man-made, media-hyped, me-focused hypocritical restrictions-so you can be free to lose weight without losing yourself. And you will begin to lose weight--a psychic weight off your shoulders, and extra flab from everywhere that matters. And you won't be doing it alone. The Naughty Diet will change your entire approach to food. By the end, you'll never feel anxious about "dieting" which will free you up for what's important: living, with a healthy, sexy body; a blissful mind; and room for the indulgences you crave. The entire book is structured around Milne's "10-Step Plan for Eating and Cheating Your Way to the Body You Want":"--
