Confessions of a Carb ueen

When her doctor told her she could suffer a stroke just by walking across the street Susan Blech knew drastic action was called for She was only 38 years old and the scale registered a life threatening 468 pounds Rejecting the idea of gastric bypass surgery Susan relocated to Durham North Carolina giving up all that was familiar an Susan s honesty about herself and her comedic wit make it hard not to enjoy this book from front to back Even the book cover and design are fun and make you want to pick up and read But I wouldn t put this on my favorites or rate it a 5 star because for many parts of the book I was actually annoyed by the main character Susan I am sure describes herself in a brutally honest manner which is very commendable but there are instances where she fits into the harsh stereotype of the loud annoying fat person I was hoping to see a different side of a large person by reading the book and was surprised in instances where she openly plugs hereself into that stereotypeFor example pigging out in the car while driving recklessly and blasting Mariah Carey is not really something that I can find myself sympathizing with Another instance is when she is rude to servers in restaurantsI thought that was really obnoxiousI did however find her character very sympathetic when she talks about how difficult her sex life was and how often rejection occurred I am glad that she decided to take action and save herself through hard work and dedication The book is inspiring even for those who don t have weight problems It encourages you to look within yourself admit to your flaws and try to improve upon them

D 70000 of her life savings to devote herself to losing weight and getting healthy on the famed Rice DietIn Confessions of a Carb ueen Susan Blech speaks candidly about topics no obese person has dared to address fat sex eating binges the lies you tell others and the lies you tell yourself She explores the psychological component o This book is one of the most disturbing books I have read about someone s weight loss and life journey I don t mean that in an insulting way But Ms Blech just shared so much raw emotion and so much about what seems to me a very self loathing sex life I feel like she must be a very courageous person not to have killed herself during her lowest momentsI enjoyed reading her book even tough it made me uncomfortable mostly I think because I know I have an emotional relationship to food I ve never been obese I was overweight for a couple of years in between having my two children And I still have weight I would like to lose to be on the low end of my healthy range This book has kind of put the fear into me that I better watch out and stay smart or I too could find myself at 4681lbs one day Blech

    Susan's honesty about herself and her comedic wit make it hard not to enjoy this book from front to back Even the book cover and design are fun and make you want to pick up and read But I wouldn't put this on my favorites or rate it a 5 star because for many parts of the book I was actually annoyed by the main character Susan I am sure describes herself in a brutally honest manner which is very commendable but there are

    Despite the overly cutesy title and pink cover this is a hard edged raw addiction and recovery memoir compelling enough that I read it in a single day She's not kidding when she says food is my heroin Her eating rampages have the same desparate frenzy as a drug addict jonesing for a hit Brutely honest this book puts other addiction memoirs like Million Little Pieces to shame especially since it's true and she has the pictures to prove it sh

    The story of a morbidly obese woman's struggle with food obsessionaddiction Her story really explains the lies she tells herself It makes you think about all the excuses we use to justify yielding to temptations of all kinds Her sense of shame that leads to eating that leads to shame etc is moving She's right we do look askance at people wit
