Do you believe that your weight should be within the range recommended by one of the various height-weight tables that are always appearing in books and magazines? That being overweight is unhealthy? That weight loss improves health? Have you ever been told by your doctor to lose weight? Are you currently dieting or contemplating going on a diet? Have diets failed you or made you feel like a failure? Do you feel people look down on you because of your weight? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then this book is for you. Millions of Americans stigmatized as “too fat” need to be reassured that the roads to good health are wide enough for everyone. Here’s proof that people can be overweight and still be fit and healthy. Glenn Gaesser, an exercise physiologist, challenges the conventional wisdom that excess body fat poses a danger to health. This is an authoritative, clearly written book that is crucial reading for anyone who wants to take concrete steps towards improving their health – no matter what their size.

In Free Your Child from Overeating, Dr. Michelle P. Maidenberg shares over 40 interactive exercises that will help your child or teen: Identify triggers, cravings, and self-sabotaging thought patterns Define his or her values and find the motivation to change Learn to eat mindfully by savoring meals and snacks And set realistic goals using the four P’s: predict, plan, put into action, and practice. It can be tempting to hope that your child’s overeating is “just a phase,” but the price of inaction is too high. Using Dr. Maidenberg’s 53 strategies (rooted in mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy), you can free your child from overeating or obesity by building his or her confidence. Your child has the power to change, and you have the power to help!

Despite the gains of the women’s movement, women are still judged by what they look like--and men, by what they do. Fat--A Fate Worse Than Death? offers hardy resistance to the narrow, random, and irrational appearance standards set for American women through an approach that is personal, eclectic, courageous, and funny. If you are interested in giving up your diet, throwing out your scales, and concentrating on who you are on a deeper level, this book will show you how to accept, appreciate, and even love your body! Using statistics, research, anecdotes, and personal experiences, Fat--A Fate Worse Than Death? explores how appearance standards have built a prison for women. With the book’s helpful advice, reading suggestions, and list of more than 100 ways to fight looksism, sexism, ageism, and racism, you will learn to express your rights and needs, regardless of your shape or size, and tear down those prison walls. Designed to transcend the boundaries between the personal and the political, Fat--A Fate Worse Than Death? discusses: examples of how weight and size constitute the last socially accepted prejudice the national “War on Fat” counteracting societal influences that support weight preoccupation connection between appearance standards for older women and large women nurturing your body resisting male-defined standards of beauty for women the myth of diets and dieting how the body resists weight loss how women are disempowered by concentration on weight and appearance how concentrating on appearance leaves real-life issues unaddressed how feeling bad about yourself can turn you into a willing consumer Feminists, faculty and students of women’s studies programs, aging women, women of radical politics, and other concerned women and men will find that Fat--A Fate Worse Than Death? states explicitly how women are kept powerless by subscribing to cultural and social edicts on physical appearance. Don’t live silently in a society that degrades and discounts women because of their physical stature and don‘t let obsession with thinness keep you passive, docile, and unable to give your energy to things that really need your passion and intelligence. Read this book and learn to not only value yourself for who you are, but also to counteract American culture’s equality-denying prejudices and practices.

Let me start by saying I LOVE TEENAGERS! Considering my age you might chalk this off to dementia, but the truth is the more rebellious a teen, the more I love them. Rebellion is misdirected energy. What a challenge to guide that energy into positive channels. The fun and reward comes in the journey of getting there.
