About the Author
"Body Drama should be center stage in every young woman's life. It will make you love every little thing about your body: your sags, you tags, your lumps, your bumps. It's a book of liberation and it's fun."
"I love this book! It puts loving (and knowing) your body into words and pictures -- you'll find out yours isn't so different after all. Body Drama has the answers you want to the questions you don't know how to ask. Fun and frank, like talking to a good friend who knows absolutely everything and is willing to dish."
-Kim Gandy, President of the National Organization of Women
"In Body Drama, Nancy Redd combines the stylishness of Naomi Campbell, the vibe of your best friend, and photos you always wanted to see but were afraid to ask. An empowering, original, funny, and frank book, Body Drama is poised to become the modern girl's Our Bodies, Ourselves."
-Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards, authors of Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism, and the Future and Grassroots: A Field Guide to Feminist Activism.
``Perfecto. This is just what girlitas need today--a get-real guide with un-airbrushed photos that allows them to dialogue with their bodies on the most honest levels."
-Deborah Gregory, author, The Cheetah Girls series and Catwalk
"Body Drama...should be on the shelf of every family, school, and doctor in America."
-Nancy Brown, PhD, professor of Adolescent Sexuality at Stanford University, Senior Research Associate at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF) Research Institute
"Demystifies female bodies and shows them as they really look: curvy, sometimes pimply and never perfect."
"This honest, funny, and lucidly-written book is the perfect antidote to a culture constantly teaching young women to angst about their bodies. This liberating call speaks directly to the worries and concerns that most of us have, offering a perspective and solutions that will help girls and young women figure out what REALLY matters to them. And maybe the world will be that much saner as a result."
-Judy Norsigian, Executive Director of Our Bodies Ourselves and co- author of Our Bodies, Ourselves
"I would have loved to have a book, written by someone who presumably is completely confident about her own body (she won the swimsuit competition, after all), that addressed all the questions I had about my changing body... If I had a young teenage girl in my life [Body Drama] would be at the top of my list of gifts for her."
-Catherine Price of Broadsheet on Salon.com
"Alexis and [Jennifer] both think [Body Drama] is terrific for teenage girls who are embarrassed to ask certain questions...Jennifer said that they were sitting upstairs and Alexis handed her a book with 36 names for vulva, which was the external part of a vagina. Nicknames like bird's nest, cha cha, jelly, muff, rosebud etc. Jennifer said that below the names were 24 close ups of vulvas...Alexis said that the book was really good for answering questions about the body."
-The "Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer" Sirius Radio Show
"I think this will be an amazing resource for girls to find the answers to things I wish I had known a long time ago. There's just vital information here that I can't believe I've gone this long without knowing."
-Anonymous teen reader
“Nancy Redd has done it again! DIET DRAMA is ‘real talk’ about what’s most important for young women to lead healthy and balanced lives.” - Dwayne Proctor, Ph.D., M.A., team director of the Childhood Obesity Program at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the country’s largest charitable organization devoted exclusively to improving the health of all Americans

Diet Drama is exactly what we need in our culture of airbrushed models and the picture of health being six pack abs and perfect tone. Diet Drama starts with "Love Your Body" which is so key for girls and women. From there Diet Drama talks about feeding your body and loving your body. There are photos of real women in all shapes and sizes with great photos of them engaging in exercises, learning the difference between whole foods and processed foods, and so much more. Author Nancy Redd shares personal stories and stresses how important it is to not wait for your life to begin when you lose weight.
Eat healthy, move your body, feel good about your body. These things are key!!
In addition ot the multi-media programming, I have worked as a health educator, lifestyle coach, nutritional consultant, teacher, weight management instructor, exercise physiologist and personal trainer for 20 years. This book is the BEST book on diet I have ever seen. I think it should be in every school in the country!
If you have a pre-teen girl, get this book. If you are a teen or a woman in her 20's, get this book. If you are over 20, get this book. I also think it is an important book for young men to read as well.
Also, it's fun to read!
Nancy Redd is an amazing young woman who is helping to change the pressures women feel to fit the ideal.

Also, she's funny!
The only thing I would have liked to seen in the book is the acceptance and healthy portrayal of people who are naturally slender. I agree that our society places an unhealthy amount of attention on our weight. However, as a slender woman myself, I felt that I was being lambasted for being such.
Overall, the book is about being healthy for you. It is a book that should be in every school's curriculum and discussed in any household with a female in it.

I agreed with pretty much every thing she said, however, I think she could have stated some things better. I have a pop addiction that I can't kick. Read morePublished on May 2, 2011 by S. Moore
Save your money. Don't get this book. It does not say anything that you can't read in a magazine at the checkout stand.Published on February 1, 2011 by mari stolten
