Description - Fat Is A Feminist Issue by Susie Orbach

The Original Anti-Diet Book Susie Orbach's hugely influential classic, Fat is a Feminist Issue, first published twenty-eight years ago, is as relevant as ever in our increasingly diet-obsessed society. Exploring our dominating love/hate relationship with food, Orbach identifies the key issue that fat is not about food, but rather about protection, sex, mothering, strength, assertion, anger, and love. It's a response to our social situation, to the way we are seen by others and, most importantly, by ourselves. Learning to eat out of stomach hunger rather than mouth hunger means food can be a pleasure, and compuslive eating a thing of the past. Finally, by understanding our investment in being fat and our subconscious fears of being thin, food can become a friend. With Fat is a Feminist Issue II, Susie Orbach delivers the long-awaited programme that will genuinely help conquer compulsive eating.A step-by-step guide, it shows how the binge-purge cycle can be broken and ultimately, how to stop dieting forever.
