Focusing on issues of size acceptance, feminism, gender studies and body images, Kinzel offers a range of alternatives to shame based views on fat and obesity. Actual statistics and facts about prescription diet remedies and weight loss programs are revealed. Kinzel challanges stereotypes and insists on issues of size and consumption being a personal choice.

This would make a really beautiful and approachable introduction to fat acceptance. Lesley Kinzel's shared most of these stories in other contexts: through her blog, on the Two Whole Cakes fatcast, or more recently on xojane. There isn't much that's new to someone who's been following her work for a long time, but the stories are still very powerful.
