Josie Gibson lost over 5 stone in 6 months, going from a size 20 to a 10. She cut out sugar and processed food and created a healthy diet that changed her life. It can change yours too. Today the woman once known as ‘that fat bird who won Big Brother‘ is a slinky mare.
Josie guides us through a simple plan for losing weight, based on the natural food we should be eating, with delicious recipes and meal plans to get started. There are lots of tips on staying motivated, all drawn from Josie’s own experiences – the hilarious, the cringeworthy and the inspirational. She also gives advice on exercise, on adapting to the slim new you and – most importantly – on how to avoid falling off the wagon. As Josie says, ‘If I can do it, then so can you. It’s never too late and you’re never too fat. So what are you waiting for?’
Everyone loved Josie Gibson, the big bird from Big Brother but when she lost all the weight I was a little bit sad. She always had such softness to her features, especially her face, and now she was all angular and bony. I had to admit though, she looked bloody good and a large part of me wished I could be that skinny.
I read The Josie Gibson Diet – not with the intention to follow her diet because diets don’t work for me, I am a sucker for a chocolate biscuit – but just to see how she did it. What I got was a pretty fascinating and heart-warming tale from a girl who knows the sadness of being the bigger girl in the group, the one who would buy accessories rather than clothes on a shopping trip because accessories are one size fits all.
There are some parts of The Josie Gibson Diet that get a bit tedious such as the recipes – they seem to go on forever. However, if you are not reading the book for those recipes you can just flick the pages. The heart of the book is Josie’s weight loss journey.
After you read The Josie Gibson Diet you do feel a sense of pride for her. She went from a size 20 to a size 10. By anyone’s standards that is amazing. Now if only reading books burnt as many calories as diet and exercise…..
