About

You might say that this is a lifelong project but don't worry Kickstarter, it does have a finish line. I was inspired to write this book by my aunt. She is in her seventies now and has been on a diet for 58 years. She is also the largest she has ever been. As a scientist, I know that diets don't work and as a health editor I am bombarded daily with the "latest wonder diet" And, I have tried every one of them. Not just for research, but also incase this really was "the one". Like many women and men before me I have been seduced by whispered promises of instant weight loss, or of dropping a dress size, EVEN though I know the diet won't work. The Lying, The Bitch and The Wardrobe takes a humorous look at all of the diets I have tried (and trust me, there has been quite a few!) and my experiences during the diet. The book exposes the lies the weight loss industry have force-fed us for the past sixty years (The Lying), highlights our emotional response to restricting food (The Bitch) and each chapter showcases a beautiful dress I was hoping to diet into but didn't quite make it (The Wardrobe). The final chapter of The Lying, The Bitch and The Wardrobe heralds the weight loss answer. Photography is taken by renowned Vogue photographer Anthony Webster throughout the book.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk to any author is not finishing the book! I am good to go with this one. Although I am an editor, I have also worked with an independent editor on The Lying, The Bitch and The Wardrobe, incase I was too ruthless and I ended up with a manuscript comprising of 7 pages. My production team is one I have worked with on many occasions so I don't see any obstacles there. Fingers crossed!

After funding, we have a social media campaign planned along with print space in newsstand publications.
