For anyone who has ever tried to lose weight, a funny, inspirational and unique recipe for success from someone who looked like the last of the lost causes…

When A.J. Rochester is singled out for a television show on obesity, she is at first appalled and then resolved. Enough is enough. She vows to change her ways and lose weight – not because she yearns to become a pretzel, but so she can keep up with her little boy and turn her life around at last. But after years of fighting a losing battle against her weight, A.J. knows she needs a miracle. So she volunteers to be a human guinea pig and record her weekly progress in front of a camera for a television program on body image. Confessions of a ReformedDieter charts the highs and lows of A.J.’s incredible journey, from her first close encounters with a nutritionist, personal trainer and psychiatrist to overcoming an early setback – waking up in hospital with a broken leg after downing an illicit cocktail on an empty stomach – and the triumph of shedding the first, and last, kilo.

The result is a funny, insightful and inspiring account of a woman who lost 40 kilos without losing her sense of humour – and discovered a whole new life.
