A fantastic book based on the blog that Shauna Reid began when she decided to lose weight. The book charts her progress on losing half her body weight from 25 stone to 12 and a half.
This isn’t a quick fix weight loss either, this is a 6 year progressive loss where Shauna changes her approach to food and exercise and finds herself a much happier, healthier person. Written with great humour and honesty this should be an inspiration to all those who think it’s too late to fight the battle of the bulge.
In January 2001 Shauna Reid was twenty-three years old and twenty-five stone. Determined to turn her life around, she created the hugely successful weblog The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl and, hiding behind her Lycra-clad roly-poly alter ego, her transformation from couch potato to svelte goddess began. Today, 8,000 miles, seven years and twelve and a half stone later, the gloriously gorgeous Shauna is literally half the woman she used to be.
Hysterically funny and heart-wrenchingly honest, The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl follows the twists and turns of Shauna’s lard-busting crusade as she curbs the calories and learns to love the gym. There are travel tales from Red Square to Reykjavik, plus romance and intrigue as she meets the man of her dreams during a pub quiz in Edinburgh. As her UK visa rapidly runs out, will she be deported back to Australia or will love triumph?
Entertaining and action-packed, this is the uplifting true story of a young woman who defeated her demons and conquered her cravings to become a weight-loss superhero to inspire us all.
