So many books…so little time…
In this section you will find books on body image, eating disorders, obesity, diet culture, body size and weight stigma – fiction and non-fiction – chosen to empower, encourage and entertain you.
(I’ve tried to tag each review, however, there really are as many ‘categories’ as there are body sizes!)
Have a favourite book you would like to recommend or review? A previous review I can repost? Do get in touch!
It's really all about the science of why some of us do, and some of us don't gain weight. This 'anti- diet' diet book by a geneticist shows how obesity is complicated. While our environment has changed, our genes have not.

Ignore the title. Kinzel writes astutely and movingly. Soon you are caught up in her thoughts and musings on fat acceptance, body politics, a lifetime 'wasted' dieting as well as the importance of fashionable clothes. A very human call to action that we should accept all bodies.
