I do not disagree with and I even applaud her effort to boost big girls' self-confidence. No one should feel bad.
I do disagree with her contention that her weight problem somehow was unavoidable. I also want to point out, I am only calling it a problem because she did. Not trying to make anyone feel bad here.
Here is her quote from the intro of the book:
"I've also had Lap-Band surgery, a medical procedure that creates a smaller stomach pouch and severely restricts the kinds of food I can eat. Despite the fact that I only consume half of what I used to, I'm still curvy!
Now I'm being told by dieticians that I'm curvy because I don't eat enough. I have also been told that if I'm hardly eating, it must be because of my thyroid--except that it's been tested six times, and is fine. A sugar allergy became the next possible culprit, so I went through acupuncture allergy cleansing. It fixed my allergies to grasses but not my fat."
Sugar and non-fibrous foods are the greatest causes of modern obesity. The author was likely told to address her sugar-eating habits, not overcome an "allergy" to sugar. Because every person alive has an "allergy" to sugar, if taken in high enough doses. Just like alcohol; it's harmless in small doses for almost all of the population, but it doesn't take much to get alcohol poisoning. You're not going to get "sugar poisoning" in the sense you get alcohol poisoning. Sugar is like cigarettes; it adds weight (and other health problems) over time.Read more ›
