The New York Times bestselling author of Body Drama addresses anxieties young women face about weight, diet, exercise, and body image. At a time when both obesity and eating disorders are on the rise, Harvard graduate and former Miss Virginia Nancy Redd provides a much- needed resource for millions of young women and concerned parents. In her uniquely reassuring 'big sister' voice and with a fresh, fun, and frank attitude that has made her the nation's go-to girl for body issues, Nancy addresses the common, painful, and shameful 'diet dramas' that most mainstream diet and nutrition books miss, including: 'I think I'm healthy, but medical charts say I'm not'; 'I can't afford a gym so I can't exercise properly'; and 'I just want to have weight loss surgery and be done with it.' Nancy's advice is vetted by a leading adolescent medicine expert and the book is packed with informative 'fast facts,' moving personal anecdotes of Nancy's own diet experiences, and revolutionary real-deal four-color photographs of young women sized 2 to 22. Finally, a food and fitness book that doesn't condescend or blame, Diet Drama begins with body image and shows readers that health comes in all shapes and sizes.
