WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…
“Finally, a diet book that is NOT a a diet book. No gimmicks, no secrets, just pure common sense. Jacquie lays out the facts in a humorous and clever fashion, making it almost impossible to fail. It’s unflinchingly honest, brave, and proves yet again that if you commit to something, you can make it happen. Who says you can’t have it all? Even if you’re not trying to lose weight, you’ll burn calories laughing!”
~ Samantha Brandon, purchased My Fat Little Rule Book on April 24
“While her 15 rules address the challenge of balancing fashion, fitness and food through personal struggle and triumph, they’re also about goal-setting and living your life exactly the way you want. Jacquie’s humourous writing style and anecdotes will have you in giggles, too. Case in point: ‘I mean, how does one conciliate Gucci with Gorgonzola or Dolce and Gabbana with Dulce de Leche? It’s a dilemma.'”
~ May Globus, Vancouver City Editor for Sweetspot
“Jacquie’s take on the whole “fashion or food” issue that so many women face is honest and real. I LOVED the diary entries before each of her 15 rules…some of them are really funny. The self-developed rules on how she lost the weight are very practical — I’m going to try a few of the recipes for sure. And I learned about a few designers that I had never heard of before! Thanks for writing this Jacquie!”
~ Suzanne Chun, purchased My Fat Little Rule Book on April 23
“With an underlying message of dream big, score big, the book delivers a frothy take on self esteem issues, reaching goals and Marc Jacobs vs mousse cake.”
~ Olivia Lovenmark, Style Struck
“My Fat Little Rule Book is a fresh approach at inspiring like minded women to learn to be comfortable in their own skin. To love themselves, be proud of the bodies they have, all while taking care of themselves and enjoying the riches life offers.”
~ Jennifer Cunningham-Pistor, Prairie Girl In The City
ABOUT MY FAT LITTLE RULE BOOK
The premise behind My Fat Little Rule Book is how a fashionista finally reconciled with being a foodie, and how she managed to lose the “evil and obstinate last ten pounds.” The author, Jacquie Somerville, is equally crazy about both food and fashion, and, as many women can attest, these two passions usually cannot peacefully coexist.
Jacquie wrote My Fat Little Rule Book as a guide for herself, and it contains the 15 rules she developed that allowed her to achieve her goal weight. Jacquie doesn’t claim to be a health, fitness, or diet expert; rather, this is a book about her journey – it is her first-hand account of the pressure to look fabulous in Gucci while salivating over Gorgonzola.
A highly entertaining account of her 35-day diet and exercise plan, My Fat Little Rule Book includes Jacquie’s irreverent and humorous musings on everything from clothing and cuisine, to lust and motivation. Weaving raw and hilarious personal journal entries with the 15 rules and their accompanying – and shockingly honest – postscript notes, Jacquie weaves a delightful read that many women (and men) will relate to.
The work is also full of surprises, particularly when the reader realizes that this book isn’t only about Prada and prosciutto, but rather, it goes much deeper, digging into the importance of setting goals and how achieving – or not achieving – them can impact one’s sense of self-worth.
The ebook version of My Fat Little Rule Book is available now for purchase on amazon.com, with a hard copy version to follow shortly.
