I’ll Have What She’s Having, My Adventures in Celebrity Dieting is the 2015 diet book by Rebecca Harrington. It humorously details her ups and downs as she tries out different celebrity diets. Some of the celebrities include Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, Victoria Beckham, and Dolly Parton.
Harrington is a trouper. For the sake of her writing, she put herself through a lot of crazy fads and odd food pairings. For instance, Elizabeth Taylor liked cottage cheese and sour cream, and Victoria Beckham would eat five handfuls of food a day. I would have gone crazy not only for the lack of food, but with some of the foods that she had to eat. Celery loaf? Really? Yuck!
I loved Harrington’s sarcastic sense of humor along with her willingness to keep her humor alive, despite what she was putting both her body and mind through. I probably would have ended being grumpy and snapping a lot during these diets. Reading about her misadventures was one wild ride!
If you’re looking for a break from the typical diet book telling you what to do and when to do it, then you’ll love this book. It’s a great change of pace and makes for a fun, relaxing, breezy read. You can order it on Amazon here. Chances are, you’ll be glad you did!
