Self-Help Health

From the leading bloggers in the fat-acceptance movement comes an empowering guide to body image— no matter what the scales say.

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.
