Mika Brzezinski is at war against obesity. On Morning Joe,
she is often so adamant about improving America’s eating
habits that some people have dubbed her “the food Nazi.”
What they don’t know is that Mika wages a personal fight
against unhealthy eating habits every day, and in this book
she describes her history of food obsession and distorted
body image, and her lifelong struggle to be thin. She
believes it’s time we all learned to stop blaming ourselves,
and each other, and look at the real culprits—the food we
eat and our addiction to it. Mika feels the only way to do
this is to break through the walls of silence and shame
we’ve built around obesity and food obsessions. She believes
we need to talk openly about how our country became
overweight, and what we can do to turn the corner and step
firmly onto the path of health. So Mika made a deal with her
very close friend Diane: they would work together on this
book and on their personal goals, to help Diane drop 75
pounds and to break Mika’s obsession with staying superthin.
As she did in her bestseller Knowing Your Value, Mika has
packed each chapter with insights from notable people in
medicine, health, business, the arts, and politics. Singer
Jennifer Hudson, the late writer and director Nora Ephron,
TV host Gayle King, New Jersey governor Chris Christie, and
many others open up to Mika about their own challenges and
what works for them when it comes to food and diet. It’s
time we stopped whispering the F-word (“fat”) the way we
used to shun the C-word (“cancer”).
This book—with its trademark Brzezinski smarts, honesty, and
courage—launches us into a no-holds-barred conversation with
family and friends, in schools and kitchens, in Congress and
the food industry, to help us all find ways to tackle one of
the biggest problems standing between us and a healthier
