About the Book

Thin is the New Happy

Thin Is The New Happy is the perfect book for anyone who loves feel-good, relatable memoirs like Eat, Pray, Love. Valerie Frankel has enjoyed her share of professional success: she’s a prolific novelist and is well-known in the magazine world, but she has also endured years of cabbage soup, lemon juice, and other exercises in self-loathe to try and lose weight.

Not wanting to pass this legacy onto her daughters, she made the decision to stop dieting once and for all. Thin Is The New Happy is her real life story of soul-searching and self-discovery --- of how when you unburden yourself of the emotional baggage of bad body image, the excess weight will dissolve too. Since making her decision, she’s lost twenty pounds and two dress sizes. She looks smoking hot, but more than that, loves her body and herself more than she ever did when she was on a diet.
