Low cal tips like "Lay off fried people" make "You Are Who You Eat" the ideal weight loss guide for anyone - cannibal and civilian alike - who has trouble stopping after that first bite. And for people who relish cannibal jokes. Mouth-watering illustrations, previously unpublished, are by the late "Playboy," "Esquire," and "The New Yorker" cartoonist Dedini. Former chubby teen-cum-consultant-to-Weight Watchers Ina Silvert Hillebrandt created the diet and cooking tips, along with ideas to nourish the inner cannibal while slimming down. Uncle Dan tossed social satire into the pot -- his recipe for skewered presidents is to die for, and this cooking tip, "Use Oil of Olé when sautéeing Spaniards," makes so much sense when you see how he fleshes it out.
Publisher Pawpress is proud to note that in February 2016, "You Are Who You Eat" was added to the collection of The Billy Ireland Cartoon Libraries & Museum at Ohio State University, where a number of original cartoons featuring Dedini's signature luscious women and lascivious men, along with other art, are housed.

A friend of mine gave me this book a few days ago as a gift for my 42nd birthday. At first I was like, "Why in tarnation are you giving me a BOOK". I don't read. EVER. I almost unfriended this particular Facebook miscreant on the grounds that since print is dead, he should be dead to me as well….but then I opened the hilarious cover and my jaw hit the engineered medium-soft faux brazilian rosewood flooring, hard. This is some FUNNY stuff. The cartoons are by cartoonist Dedini (someone I remember from The New Yorker, Esquire, Playboy, etc., back in the days before my eyesight went to blazes), and this Ina Silvert Hillebrandt is something else. There is some wicked social commentary in there- mixed with some biting humor that pokes fun at everything from the human condition to politics, and let me tell you something else- it made me laugh involuntarily. Then, it made me hungry….I think I may need help.
