This is the Perfect Book for a Girl Like Me!

One woman’s journey to find herself through juicing, veganism, and love, as she went from fat to thin and from feeding her emotions to feeding her soul.

I love memoirs, personal stories and self help books!  Thats the kinda gal I am.  So, when one of my fabulous New York animal rights friends, Jasmin Singer, released her first book, a memoir, “Always too Much and Never Enough” , I was thrilled!  It’s about her life changing experience going from a super heavy woman navigating this world, to a thin woman navigating this world.  Juice fasting changed her life, but the book is about way more than just that.  It touches on subjects such as bullying, and how the world judges people instantly based on their weight and/or appearance.  It’s about finding a passion in life that drives you forward and makes this whole life experience worth living.  It’s about overcoming hardships and traumas.  It is a powerful and inspirational book.

25489453I related so much to the words Jasmin put on paper.  I was a chunky kid who endured bullying throughout most of my childhood, and it was horrible.  I experienced first hand a shift that occurred in how society and its people treated me when I transformed from fat, to a more “acceptable” size.  These experiences have shaped who I am today, and how I view the world around me.  And it was therapeutic to dive into someone elses similar life experiences.  To read how Jasmin navigated her life, and found positive ways to move forward, was inspirational.  To change herself.  To grow spiritually and emotionally.  And in the end became a strong, beautiful, artistic, passionate, self-loving woman who puts her energy towards bettering the life of animals, other people, and our planet.

A must read!

Jane and I attended Jasmin’s book signing event in West Hollywood a little while back and did a short story about it.  Watch the video below for a sneak peek into the book “Always Too Much and Never enough.”
