The Skinny Bitch Diet is a low calorie and low fat vegan lifestyle diet for weight loss. The diet comes from the best-selling book with the same name, co-authored by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. The book itself is quite popular, not just because of the diet, but also because of the way it is written. The authors have taken a no-nonsense, tough-love approach with their diet. Readers can expect graphic words, little sympathy, and strong opinions. This isn’t a diet for proud carnivores or the soft-hearted.

When following the Skinny Bitch Diet, you will be required to eliminate all animal-based products from your diet. This doesn’t only include meat, but also fish, diary and eggs. In addition, no added sugars are allowed including refined sugars/carbs and artificial sweeteners. Alcohol and caffeine are strongly discouraged, although not entirely off limits.

What you can eat are fruits, vegetables, legumes, seeds, whole grains and nuts. You can eat as much of this as you like without having to count calories. Eating organic is strongly recommended.

The Skinny Bitch Diet Pros

This diet is vegetarian and vegan friendly. There is a very good chance that you will lose weight if you follow the Skinny Bitch Diet, as it is low in fat, high in fiber and devoid of animal products. Studies have found that vegans typically have a lower BMI (body mass index) compared to those who eat meat. There is a series of Skinny Bitch books including one for women who are pregnant, a journal, a recipe book, and even a book geared toward men called, “Skinny Bastard”. All are available at a variety of reputable sellers both on and offline, for a reasonable price. The “Skinny Bitch” book is the only guide you need for following the diet.

The Skinny Bitch Diet Cons

This is a highly restrictive diet that requires dieters (especially those who are accustom to eating meat) to undergo a massive dietary change. Due to this fact, it may be too extreme for some people, especially those who do not already follow a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. The creators of the diet are not certified nutrition experts, nor are they medical professionals, they are former models who made the decision to drastically alter their eating habits and created a book based on their experiences. This diet has never been proven or studied to determine its effectiveness in terms of weight loss and weight management. Furthermore, the authors recommend cleanses and fasts, which many medical experts warn are unhealthy for the body.

It is also important to note that there is more to becoming vegan than simply eating a plant-based diet. You need to make certain that you are ingesting sufficient amounts of protein and calcium, as well as are receiving adequate amounts of nutrients like vitamin D, vitamin B12, zinc and iron. Therefore, it is often recommended for those new to veganism to seek the advice of a registered dietician to help them create a safe and healthy balanced diet.

Before making any drastic changes to your diet, you should first consult with your healthcare provider.
