The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl

(NB: My views on all things dieting have massively changed since this book was published. Here’s a recent post I wrote about this.)

“Shauna is an entertaining, endearing writer — funny, humble, honest, wise, and best of all, compassionate.”
– Minneapolis Star Tribune

Published by Transworld in the UK and Avon in the US, here’s the blurb on the back…

“At just twenty-three years old, Shauna Reid weighed 351 pounds. Spurred into action by the sight of her enormous white knickers billowing on the clothesline, she created the hugely successful blog “The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl.” Hiding behind her Lycra-clad, roly-poly alter-ego, her transformation began.

Hysterically funny and heart-wrenchingly honest, The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl includes travel tales from Australia to Paris to Red Square, plus romance when she meets the man of her dreams in a Scottish pub. This is the uplifting true story of a young woman who defeated her demons and conquered her cravings to become a real-life superhero to inspire us all.”
