Three years ago Carnie Wilson was 300 pounds unemployed depressed and sitting in a doctors office being told that she probably wouldnt live much longer. At night she had terrible dreams of her mother getting a phone call from the police saying Were very sorry but someone found your daughter in bed and shes gone. Knowing she had to do something to save her own herself Carnie opted to have gastric bypass surgery. She woke up the next day in the hospital determined that she wouldnt just work on having a new body but also a new life. Thats the story weve already heard. In Im Still Hungry Wilson picks up where she left off in her 2001 book Gut Feelings. She takes readers step by step on her weight loss journey which wasnt just a road to reaching 125 pounds. It was a mental trip where she had to conquer all of her fears and insecurities including issues with her father Beach Boy Brian Wilsonwhich made her gain the weight in the first place. This book offers a unique way of showing the progression of weight loss with one section serving as a diary of sorts. It details Carnies weight at specific times so that readers can use this part of the book to find their own weight and see how Carnies life lessons got her head in the right place so the pounds could keep falling off. Wilson also offers a humorous look at her own weight loss asking: Whats bettersex or chocolate? (Answer: Sex followed by chocolate.) She also discusses re-establishing her career as an actress and singer in Hollywood. It wasnt easy when the National Enquirer was practically staking out her house to catch her on a fat day or when fans e-mailed her to chastise her for flashing some arm flab on Entertainment Tonight. And of course the book includes Carnies minute-by-minute description of posing for the June 2003 issue of Playboy magazine with the inevitable questions: Can I eat breakfast before posing nude? Why do I have my period this week of all weeks? and Do I look fat? Carnie also gives readers a glimpse of what spurred on the much awaited 2004 regrouping of the Wilson Phillips band and how she is in perfect harmony again with her partners sister Wendy Wilson; and bandmate Chynna Phillips. Finally the last part of the book reveals the specific weight-loss plan that Carnie still uses to keep slimand anyone can follow this plan to lose weight whether theyve had weight-loss surgery or not. Carnie even includes a few of her favorite desserts. Wilson is still hungry for knowledge love acceptance and yes a chocolate chip cookie or two.
