THE GRIT DOCTOR IS ONE TOUGH TASK-MISTRESS . . . First she instructed us to lace up our trainers in RUN FAT B!TCH RUN Then she told us to clear the clutter in GET YOUR SH!T TOGETHER Now, she is ordering us to CUT THE CRAP and get real with our eating habitsShould you go gluten-free? Does detoxing work? What exactly is a superfood? If you're confused by increasingly complicated (and contradictory) nutritional advice, it's time to call in Ruth Field and her formidable alter-ago, The Grit Doctor. With her familiar tough-love style and wicked sense of humour, The Grit Doctor will demystify and simplify healthy eating, enabling readers to see past the bullsh!t and make practical and tasty choices for themselves and their families. Cutting the crap is just as much about eliminating unhelpful and unhealthy pseudo-science as it is about reducing your waistline. In CUT THE CRAP, Ruth Field will empower readers to ditch faddy diets for good and instead embrace a realistic, sustainable and enjoyable healthy eating plan. This isn't a diet, it's a way of life.____________Readers love CUT THE CRAP: 'Great approach to eating, and life in general' 'Five stars given because this book offers straight forward advice that's easy to digest! The humour and wit keeps it fresh, causing a few chuckles along the way' 'Awesome . . . all her books are!' 'Well worth the price and more likely to change your crap eating habits in a sensible bit-by-bit way than any of the other "diet" books out there!' 'The kick up the rear we needed' 'This book is such a refreshing change from the usual bulls*** boring diet books out there . . . Ruth Field's writing style is extremely funny so you actually enjoy reading the book regardless of whether you want to lose weight or not . . . What a welcome change to all the hundreds of diet books I've attempted to read but are now gathering dust on a spare bedroom book shelf'

It was shortly after this that I read Run Fat B!tch Run - and it has changed my life around completely. Now five-and-a-half stone lighter I am now training to compete in The Dublin Marathon in October of this year. Are you suffering from Motivation Meltdown? Have your well-worn-in trainers lain dormant for a few months, or are you simply looking for that first push to get up, lace up and RUN?Then look no further, for here are the stories from 26 women who have been exactly where you are (on the sofa, right?) and fought back . . . with a little help from The Grit Doctor. Their stories are all here to give you a Motivation Marathon every time you're tempted to give up and give in to the takeaway menu. Funny, moving and incredibly inspiring, each of these women found their own reasons to get running and beat the bulge and so can you.
