9781478910244: Big Girl: How I Gave Up Dieting and Got a Life

A hilarious and inspiring memoir about one young woman's journey to find a better path to both physical and mental health.At twenty-nine, Kelsey Miller had done it all: crash diets, healthy diets, and nutritionist-prescribed "eating plans," which are diets that you pay more money for. She'd been fighting her un-thin body since early childhood, and after a lifetime of failure, finally hit bottom. No diet could transform her body or her life. There was no shortcut to skinny salvation. She'd dug herself into this hole, and now it was time to climb out of it.With the help of an Intuitive Eating coach and fitness professionals, she learned how to eat based on her body's instincts and exercise sustainably, without obsessing over calories burned and thighs gapped. But, with each thrilling step toward a healthy future, she had to contend with the painful truths of her past. Big Girl chronicles Kelsey's journey into self-loathing and disordered eating--and out of it. This is a memoir for anyone who's dealt with a distorted body image, food issues, or a dysfunctional family. It's for the late-bloomers and the not-yet-bloomed. It's for everyone who's tried and failed and felt like a big, fat loser. So, basically, everyone.

About the Author:

Kelsey Miller graduated from Boston University with a BS in film and television. She began her career in the film production industry before transitioning to full-time writing. Soon after joining the staff of Refinery29, she created the Anti-Diet Project, one of the website's most popular franchises. She is a senior features writer and lives in Brooklyn.

Review:

"This chronicle of [Miller's] journey from childhood through hard-won revelations is hilarious and brutally honest, offering plenty of wisdom for anyone who's struggled with issues of her own."― People


"Readers of all sizes, shapes and backgrounds can relate to 'Big Girl.' It's a tour de force on growing up, learning how to be healthy in mind, body and spirit, and coming to terms with the fact that life is fast, but it is OK to stop for a moment to bring home, smell and eat the bacon."
New York Daily News

"Raw and revealing, with self-deprecating humor sprinkled throughout. . . . [Miller's] honestly, hilariously told story will appeal to any readers who have ever felt dissatisfaction with their bodies and will move them to tears of sorrow, laughter, and joy."―Publishers Weekly

"Readers will cheer for Miller to succeed on her 'anti-diet' diet of intuitive eating, her quest to eat according to her mindfully mined needs and desires, not according to a rulebook."―Kirkus Reviews

"In less capable hands, Big Girl might have been another garden-variety memoir or diet book. With Miller in charge, however, we see these two genres woven cleverly together to tell a story that - if you're in possession of a beating heart - will promise to amuse, educate and inspire."―Sara Barron, author of The Harm in Asking and People Are Unappealing

"Smart, sane, and funny, Big Girl is the wise friend that every person should have by their side when navigating the bizarre extremes of modern eating. With grace and humor, Kelsey Miller sheds light on the hazards of a culture obsessed with dieting--and shows us that self-acceptance and intuition can offer a way out."―Alexandra Kleeman, author of You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine

"Reading Big Girl is like spending time with your utterly authentic and devastatingly articulate new friend. Kelsey Miller strikes a pitch perfect balance between criticizing our deeply warped cultural attitudes toward body image and reminding us all that we're personally responsible for--and capable of--rising above the insanity."―Kelsey Osgood, author of How To Disappear Completely

"Big Girl is so much more than the story of a girl's life-long struggles with food and her body. It is a unflinchingly honest and laugh-out-loud hilarious look at what it means to be a woman, full stop. Kelsey Miller's struggles might not specifically be yours, but no one reading this spectacular debut memoir will doubt that how she deals with those struggles, her successes and very human failures, are universal. This book is, quite simply, an act of both courage and kindness, shining a spotlight on the things we all hold secret, and in the process it becomes not only inspirational and uplifting, but more importantly, an enormously entertaining piece of writing."―Stacey Ballis, author of Out to Lunch and Recipe for Disaster
