When it comes to body image, women
can be their own worst enemies, aided and abetted by society
and the media. But Harding and Kirby, the leading bloggers
in the “fatosphere,” the online community of the fat
acceptance movement, have written a book to help readers
achieve admiration for—or at least a truce with—their
bodies. The authors believe in “health at every size”—the
idea that weight does not necessarily determine well-being
and that exercise and eating healthfully are beneficial,
regardless of whether they cause weight loss. They point to
errors in the media, misunderstood and ignored research, as
well as stories from real women around the world to
underscore their message. In the up-front and honest style
that has become the trademark of their blogs, they share
with readers twenty-seven ways to reframe notions of dieting
and weight, including: accepting that diets don’t work,
practicing intuitive eating, finding body-positive doctors,
not judging other women, and finding a hobby that has
nothing to do with one’s weight.
