Chick-lit satire of the calorie and appearance obsessed lives of New Yorkers. If you've had enough of kale, bizarre diets regimes, cultish workouts and are a little bit tired of the words wellness and gratitude, this book might be for you. A light humorous beach read, it didn't make me laugh out loud but I did give a small giggle here and there.

Funny read, especially for those looking for the next diet and workout fad. Points out the ridiculousness of extreme workouts and regimes, all in a make-believe world where looking perfect can be hilarious or possibly deadly.
