I mean, really???
Being an avid reader I subscribe to most of the major publishing firms e-newsletters. I like to keep up with what’s new in the world of books because … ahem … my “to be read” list is not long enough yet. Yeah, right! Okay, enough about my personal vice. When I received the monthly newsletter from www.simonandschuster.com this book immediately jumped out at me, not just because I am on a personal weight loss journey, and not just because I am constantly searching for new ideas to present at the weekly TOPS meetings. Obviously it was the title of the book that caught my eye. My first reaction was, well …
I mean, really???
As far as I know there are two extensions for the MILF acronym. One being Moro Islamic Liberation Front and I’m thinking that’s not the one Ms. Porter had in mind when titling this book. The more common slang interpretation is Mother/Mom/Mature woman I’d Like to F***, yup - that’s probably the one the book refers to. The book description takes a more gentle approach “A true MILF is confident, sexy, and radiates a true femininity”. It goes on to state that “by eating, whole, plant-based foods, you, too, can find balance, and dynamic health, and unleash your inner MILF”.
Hmm, didn’t know I had one?
Shades of Grey told me I had an “inner goddess” and now Ms. Porter tells me I have an “inner MILF”. I’m more complicated than I thought I was! MILF refers to women of a certain age group. Mine!! Tee-hee-hee! Maybe after a certain age those “inners” join forces …whoa … should we even be allowed out in public unsupervised?
But fair is fair and I guess we all have an inner MILF. We all want to be healthy, fit, confident, sexy and desirable. I have not read the book, have not so much as even paged through it. Given Ms. Porter’s credentials, “teacher of healthy cooking and hypnotherapy for over fifteen years she brings her wealth of knowledge to The MILF Diet in the form of holistic philosophy, mouth watering recipes and a fun, digestible enumeration of the healthy benefits of MILF-y foods”, I’m sure the information she shares is sound.
I will page through this book at my local bookstore because I must admit I am dying to know exactly what “MILF-y foods” might be.
I dare to speculate that this book is going to create a bit of a buzz around the talk show circuit, mainly because of the title. It sure caught my attention, and here I am blogging about it. I wish Ms. Porter well, if for no other reason than she came up with a title for a diet book that will definitely get people to pause, possibly pick it up and thumb through it, like me - just out of curiosity!
