Our Lady of Weight Loss by Janice Taylor

Our Lady of Weight Loss

253 pages; Penguin
It takes a kooky kind of genius to turn weight loss into an art project, and Taylor's soaking in it. Six years ago, she began to turn food into collages and dioramas. She shed 50 pounds in the process and has kept it off. See if her idiosyncratic diet plan will work for you.
