How to Be Thin in a World of Chocolate contains 56 anti-fad, anti-diet, anti-misery strategies for losing weight without losing your mind.

Michele draws on her Bachelor of Psychology, research into why diets fail, and years of experimenting with her own diet, exercise, and mindset as though she were both scientist and guinea pig - after all, what could be cuter than a small rodent in a white lab coat?


Weight issues are serious and difficult enough. But this book is funny, cute, with charming illustrations, but without padding (#boomtish). It’s actually fun to read!

The simple strategies offer a refreshing and achievable approach. These are genuine hacks for looking and feeling great that don't rely on willpower or large reserves of discipline.

And perhaps most importantly...

You can have your cake/chocolate/wine - and enjoy it too!

How to Be Thin in a World of Chocolate is the perfect book for anyone who wants to look and feel their best without giving up life’s pleasures.

About the Author

The question Michele Connolly gets asked most often is Could you please stop singing? Rude! The question she gets asked second-most often is How do you eat like that and not get fat? Michele has a Bachelor of Psychology and has written a thesis on personality and happiness. She describes her relationship with chocolate as: It’s complicated. She is an introvert, overthinker, sharer of micro-epiphanies, minimalist, embracer of personal weirdness and author of comedic how-to books.


great book - easy changes can make a big difference


This book was a good little read. easy to pick up and read a few things at a time. I read it in 2 sittings so not too time-consuming​ and yet I found a number of small changes to my mindset that can make a big difference to losing weight particularly concerning the choices I make. The only negative for me was that the author says she doesn't really cook and tends to eat out or get home delivery services which for me was a bit odd for a weight loss author and certainly is not an option in our house.


Anti-fad, anti-misery guide to losing weight - says it all


This is such a great book with gorgeous little illustrations & memorable phrases - "take the die out of diet". The tips are spot on. Having spent years trying every diet known, I wish I'd read this book years ago. Fun stocking stuffer gift too!

Very funny - and yet informative at the same time


Such a fun, short read. Quite funny - laugh out loud at times - and yet really useful. Based on research and personal strategies, the book is very informative - a few of the strategies will really stick with you eg the Treat Your Body Like a Nightclub approach. Highly recommended.
