Our bodies are wonderous things that come in many shapes and sizes. Each is pretty good at taking care of itself and letting you know what it needs and when.

The mass media and diet industries would have you believe that you should fit into their definitions of "fit" or "healthy."

Stick figures of various sizes

Studies indicate that maintaining an active lifestyle helps you live longer, irregardless of your size.  For more information, read The Obesity Myth or other fine books in our reviews section.

For a limited time, email us your address, and receive a free hardcover diet book converted into a book safe!  Free shipping for U.S. addresses; we may ask you to help cover shipping for non-U.S. addresses. I envision a day when having a diet book is so preposterous that it's a dead giveaway to thieves, but until then, please enjoy your book safe.
