LOS ANGELES, CA, September 28, 2012 (Press-News.org) Looking for the straight skinny about losing weight and getting in shape? So did award-winning humorist Judy Gruen, who determined to streamline her body and outsource her fat during the months leading up to a college reunion.

In her new book, Till We Eat Again: A Second Helping, Gruen chronicles her campaign to unearth long-hidden hip bones and earn the right to feel fabulous after 40. Faced with a bloated BMI number, she considers a relationship with a talking scale, signs up for fitness boot camp, belly dancing classes, too-hot-to-handle Bikram yoga, barre fitness, and other exercises that don't even begin with the letter "B." Flummoxed by contradictory "expert" advice, ranging from the wise (don't skip meals) to the wacky (don't eat lentils if your blood type is A), she seeks refuge during private moments with Godiva chocolate.

Along the way, Judy discovered many truths about dieting and fitness, such as:
-Being overweight is a bad thing. Being overweighed may be worse.
-The dubious claim, "Lose weight, effortlessly!" may be a form of hate speech.
-Weight Watchers is a very sensible and effective program, but only if you follow it.
-There really is no such thing as "spot reducing," unless you have a really good dry cleaner.

"Women keep obsessing about our weights and dress sizes," Judy says. "This book helps women laugh at the absurdities of the diet-industrial complex, which returns some healthy perspective through relatable, calorie-busting laughter. It's time for women to learn to feel good about themselves even when our weights exceed what the government says is 'ideal.' Honestly, how often is the government right about anything?" Till We Eat Again: A Second Helping serves up hilarious inspiration for readers trying to lose five pounds or 50.

Judy Gruen is the author of four books, including MBA Admission for Smarties (with Linda Abraham), The Women's Daily Irony Supplement, and Carpool Tunnel Syndrome. Contact her at judy@judygruen.com, or 310-486-4573. http://www.judygruen.com or http://www.tillweeatagain.com.
