Overview

Calorie Accounting: The Foolproof Diet-by-Numbers Plan for a Skinnier New You by Mandy Levy

Dieting is ridiculous. It’s a never-ending roller-coaster ride of ups and downs, corkscrews and loop-the-loops, rattled brains and upset stomachs. Every day a new morning show nutritionist announces the latest yogalates pose or rare strain of kale designed to attack those stubborn ass dimples, but every day, no matter what new acai Kool-Aid you’re drinking, your ass dimples are multiplying! It’s not adding up, and it’s time to do the math.

Calorie Accounting is a fun and funny, cool and creative, visual and vibrant lifestyle how-to that delivers the skinny on the arithmetic of weight loss. Typically, there’s nothing less enjoyable than being fat and preferring not to be, but Calorie Accounting finally allows us to cut the crap and face this thing head on—with jokes, puns, humiliating photos, and self-deprecation! Because after all, in the all-too-heavy world of health and fitness, can’t we afford to lighten up a bit?

Calorie Accounting is a tried-and-true diet plan, developed, followed, and documented by Mandy Levy, your author and sarcastic best friend. Her been-there-done-that words and pictures will inspire, mentor, and guide you through your own weight-loss success story with step-by-step instructions and extended metaphors for:

Checks and balances!
Shopping!
Shakin’ that moneymaker!
Recipes (for disaster)!
And more!

About the Author

Mandy Levy is an Emmy-winning writer, comedian, and karaoke enthusiast. She’s gotten occasionally fat due to her love of cheese and parties, so she developed Calorie Accounting as an attempt to achieve and maintain a bangin’ bod once and for all. Using the best practices from countless dieting efforts over the last fifteen years, something finally clicked, and she’s here to share her riches with the world. Mandy splits her time between Brooklyn, New York (with her cat and her TV), and New Orleans, Louisiana (with her boyfriend and his TV).

Though I had originally bought "Calorie Accounting" for the humor and funny photos, I actually tried it out for myself about 3 weeks ago. I'd always been an hourglass, but in the past couple years I've become somewhat diamond-shaped. I was just chalking that up to old age. Once I read the book, laughing from cover to cover, I realized that it made total sense and thought I might as well give it a try. I am pleased to say, everything's working. My waist is whittling, my pounds are plunging, and I am one delighted old biddy who is gonna see this makeover to the finish. Thank you Ms. Mandy Levy. Couldn't have done it without you - well, your book anyway.

)A Ton o' Fun. Calorie Accounting/Mandy Levy It's hard to classify this book as to whether it is a diet book, a humor book, or even perhaps one of those "coffee table books." I love Amy Sedaris and the book reminds me of the kind she writes, beautiful yet goofy photos, cute little cartoons, and snarky, clever, hilarious writing style. Calorie Accounting, though, all comes together with that universal question of how can I lose weight and keep it off. Any and every reader will be entertained, whether or not they are thick or thin, but the thicker ones will also receive tried and true foolproof advice for taking that weight off, laughing all the way. Or weigh. I wish I could give it 10 stars. I have already lost 4 lbs. and I just finished reading it. Of course I need to go back all the time to refer to this and that, to help me on my journey, and I love to go back because the writing is such a treat. Better than a milkshake. I did read one review though that said this was definitely not your grandmother's diet book and I have to agree. My 90 year old grandma might be a little shocked at some of the outrageous humor, but then again, maybe not. Grandma is still pretty cool. (less)

Can you judge a book by its cover? Calorie Accounting seems clean, professional, healthy but wait - an abacus? Read it - read it all. It's real, true, scientific info - this diet plan will work. And the writing is so compelling - you can't put the book down. You will laugh your _ _ _ off, figuratively and literally.
