Think Sarah Palin is too skinny? She insists she's not. In reality, Palin is just really healthy, she said earlier this week. How healthy? She's about to write a "unique and motivating" fitness book to share with her fans.
"Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods!" she told People in an email Tuesday.
The comfort foods she's referring to? Alaskan delicacies like moose chili along with yummy desserts like chocolate cream pie and lemon meringue pie.
Actually, we'd like to know how we can eat those pies and still stay in shape. "We promise you what we do works and allows a fulfilling quality of life and sustenance anyone can enjoy," she added.
No word on when the book will be published - or if she even has a contract for it. She probably won't have too much trouble getting a buyer, though: Her other two tomes, "Going Rogue" and "America by Heart", both landed on The New York Times Best-Seller list. Going Rogue even sold an estimated 2.67 million copies in the first year of release, according one literary agent.
Whether or not Palin's book will sell is the question, but she's hardly the first celeb to write a fitness book.
We were genuinely stunned when actress and singer Jennifer Hudson stepped out 80 lbs. lighter in 2010. The mom of toddler David Otunga, Jr. did it through Weight Watchers. She eventually detailed her weight loss - and intense personal problems - in her book "I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down."
Basically, she says Weight Watchers gave her the ability to lose weight without calling it a diet.
"I have pizza all the time," she told The Huffington Post while promoting the book. "I have whatever I want, it's just how to have it. Before I started Weight Watchers I hadn't had pizza in over 10 years because I had the diet mentality which clearly did not work."

Reality star and talk show host Bethenny Frankel is known for her obsession with being skinny: Her products are all named after the "Skinnygirl" moniker, after all. She advised women who envied her shape to "taste everything, eat nothing." She's also written books on fitness
Model Crystal Renn went from a thin model to a plus-sized sensation and then a thin model again. She seemingly pledged to be a voice for plus-sized models everywhere when she wrote "Hungry: A Young Model's Story of Appetite, Ambition, and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves." The book detailed her fight with exercise addiction and eating disorders - and she promised to be a voice for the bigger girls of America.
Now? She's super skinny again. Have her eating disorders got the best of her? She insists that the loss was a result of a bad breakup and life-changing trip to Patagonia.
"For me, this is not me being anorexic again," Renn told Entertainment Tonight in February. "I find that where I am I just feel very, very good."
