Food and Loathing by Betsy Lerner
Book DescriptionWith warmth, wit, and not a trace of self-pity" ( Entertainment Weekly ), Betsy Lerner details her twenty-year struggle with depression and compulsive eating in Food and Loathing, a book that dares to expose the insidious nature of women's secret life with food. "Alternating between hilarious and heartbreaking" ( People ), Food and Loathing gives voice to one of the last taboo subjects and greatest stigmas of our time: being overweight. Lerner's revelations on the cult of thinness -- from the dreaded weigh-in at junior high gym class to the effects of inhaling Pepperidge Farm Goldfish at Olympic speeds -- are universally resonant, as is her belief that this is one battle no one should fight alone. Essential reading for anyone who has ever wielded a fork in despair or calculated her self-worth on the morning scale, "Lerner's lament is a triumph" ( Publishers Weekly ).

In this memoir, a bright, chubby girl believes thinness is next to godliness and attends one of the first meetings of Overeaters Anonymous in 1975. We follow her through yo-yo dieting and into a depression which lands her in a psychiatric institute. There she takes her first steps toward self-hood.
