Janey Sweet works with her childhood friend, Beau, at a bridal gown company called B. One day, he takes her out for breakfast and announces that she should take a break from the company because she’s gained too much weight. This was sparked by a photo of her eating at a fashion show. Janey had been going through a lot in the past year because both her parents died and she got divorced. Her best friend CJ set her up with all kinds of exercise classes and diets. But her life really started to change when she met Stella, a shaman. Stella introduced her to the exclusive Workout, that is invite-only. Along with CJ, Stella, and her cousin Ivy, Janey tries lots of diets and workouts with the goal of returning to her company. 

This book has just the right amount of humour and drama. Janet’s experience with all the fad diets and workouts were hilarious. She did everything from freezing her body to a free-the-nipple yoga session. It was very entertaining to read. But there were also serious twists to the story. Some women will literally do anything to be skinny. 

One of the scary things about this book is that these diets and exercises are real! I can’t imagine wanting to eat clay or freeze my body to lose weight. 

I really enjoyed this book. It’s a perfect summer beach read!
