There’s a lot I could say about Jenna Bergen’s Your Big Fat Boyfriend: How to Stay Thin When Dating a Diet Disaster. But I hate writing negative reviews and just had to do so about this book (I read it for a newspaper), so this is all I’ll say here:

Cute idea. Awful execution.

If you’re faced with this sort of boyfriend diet problem and want useful and practical nutrition information, save yourself the $14.95 and check out Nina Planck’s Real Food: What to Eat and Whyor Joy Manning’s blog What I Weigh Today.
