In Big Fit Girl, Louise Green describes how the fitness industry fails to meet the needs of plus-size women and thus prevents them from improving their health and fitness. By telling her own story of how she stopped dieting, got off the couch, and unleashed her inner athlete--as well as showcasing similar stories from other women--Green inspires other plus-size women to do the same. Green also provides concrete advice, based on the latest research, about how to get started, how to establish a support team, how to choose an activity, what kind of clothing and gear work best for the plus-size athlete, how to set goals, and how to improve one’s relationship with food. And she stresses the importance of paying it forward--for it is only by seeing plus-size women in leadership roles that other plus-size women will be motivated to stop trying to lose weight and get fit instead.

Yoga has been practiced for more than five thousand years, and close to eleven million Americans are enjoying its health benefits currently. However, those who are not height/weight proportionate have been excluded from trying yoga to improve all aspects of their lives. Unfortunately, there are very few yoga classes that are geared toward those who are plus-sized. After clearly explaining the components of Kundalini Yoga and how to practice yoga and meditation at home, the book then details nine postures, seven yoga sets, and eight meditations. Guidance is provided on possible challenges the plus-sized might experience. There are even short (three-minute) meditations for those who don't have time to meditate. Those with smaller waists will also find the material in this book helpful. All this is done with lightness and humor while stsill being true to all elements of yoga.

In FOOD AND LOATHING a bright, chubby girl believes that thinness is next to godliness and so attends one of the first meetings of Overeaters Anonymous in 1975. Her twenties are marked by yo-yo dieting, depressive episodes and a sadistic shrink. Then, just as her dream of being a writer is within reach, entering Columbia's prestigious MFA program, she spirals into a suicidal depression and lands for a six-month stay at New York State Psychiatric Institute. There a young resident helps her take her first steps towards selfhood, unravelling the self-loathing of an eating disorder coupled with a paralysing mood disorder. He also helps her confront a tragic family secret whose silence had enveloped an otherwise average Jewish middle-class family. FOOD AND LOATHING is a book about how people use food to narcotise, to love and to escape. It's about therapy - the good, the bad, and the down right destructive - and about every woman who spends too much of her life thinking about her weight and how she can forgive herself for living - and even learn to love.
