Why are women fatter than ever before and what can we do about it? Today women are fatter than at any other time in history and there are 200 million more obese women than men. Yet some women are embracing obesity as a means of livelihood and validation while others are apologists for obesity, arguing that 'big is beautiful.' In this passionate polemic which draws on the latest science, Helen Verlander argues that feminism has lost its way in asserting that our main concern about obesity should revolve around self-esteem. Why is it important to get a good night's sleep for the sake of your weight? Why is a glass of orange juice making you fat and ageing you seven times faster? How does the food industry make you addicted to food? How just ten minutes of exercise a day can make a big difference. Filled with practical advice and encouragement, Fat is a Feminine Issue, is a wake-up call for women everywhere who are overweight or obese.
