Fat is a Feminist Issue, Susie Orbach's revolutionary work, first published twenty years ago and now established as a classic, shows how fat is not about food, but rather about protection, sex, mothering, strength, assertion, anger, love. Fat can be a response to the way you are seen by your husband, your mother, your boss - and yourself. By understanding your investment in being fat and your subsconscious fears of being thin you can transform food into a friend. Learning to eat out of stomach hunger rather than mouth hunger means food can be a pleasure which nourishes you when you are hungry rather than something you have a love/hate relationship with. And in Fat is a Feminist Issue II, Susie Orbach lays out a programme that will help you conquer compulsive eating, a step-by-step guide that shows how you can break the binge-purge cycle and stop dieting forever.
