Description

Welcome to Durham, North Carolina, the diet capital of the world. Plus-sized TV producer Kate Gallagher has been told she has the "face" for TV-it's the body she needs to work on. So, when she gets dumped by her boyfriend and laid off from her job in the same week, Kate decides to trade in her Whoopie Pies for thinner thighs and enrolls in an exclusive weight loss clinic in Durham, North Carolina. After just one day at the Hoffman Clinic, Kate is about ready to sell her soul for a White Mocha with a doughnut chaser. Working freelance on a story about her own transformation, she must endure petrified fruit and tasteless gruel, sunrise walks, and crazy neighbors. But when the clinic's principal diet guru turns up dead with a pair of fondue forks where his eyes should be, Kate loses her appetite. Now that the menu features murder, she's got a breaking story on her hands.
