There's also two other slide shows of interest on this site, one dealing with bathing suits for various plus-sized body types and the other featuring party dresses. The prices for all of these slide shows include affordable ($25) to ridiculous ($$$ whatever that number is for you).

Book Review: True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself

True You was a quick read. It is not a tell all book. She barely mentions her second marriage, she states for legal reasons. The premise of the book is that Janet is just like you and her insecurities and low self esteem caused her to have disordered eating which generally equaled stave/binge patterns. She tells her story as well as stories of fans who had similar issues and overcame his/her issues after listening to a Janet song. She does have her nutritionist do the afterward and he discusses the medical aspects of losing weight. His top tips:

  • Stop dieting and change your lifestyle habits

  • Get a medical evaluation before you start the new lifestyle, because the damage of past habits, could hinder weight lost of the new habits

  • Also that proper sleep and nutritious foods are just as if not more important then exercise

The book also has some recipes with nutrition info mapped out for each recipe.

I would recommend this book.
