Synopsis

This book presents an unprecedented opportunity for people to hear from a simultaneously ostracized, ridiculed, and ignored group: fat Americans. Find out how the members of this very diverse group of people describe their actual lived experiences, quality of life, hopes and dreams, and demands. * Provides readers with unprecedented insights into the lived experiences of fat people, unfiltered by a media that can be steeped in "fat bias," as well as information about the science and research regarding obesity * Reframes the discussion about obesity from a medical issue to a social one and overturns misconceptions readers may have about overweight individuals * Provides support for readers, especially young women, who may be the subject of bullying and discrimination * Documents how obese people are as diverse as any group of individuals who share a single physical characteristic, encompassing every ethnicity, political and religious affiliation, and sexual orientation as well as vegans and athletes
