Zel who co founded the blog Fatshionista is an online celebrity in the communities of size acceptance fashion and women’s issues She has her own blog on body politics in the media Two Whole Cakes is an associate editor at xoJane and has become the go to fatty for all things fashion and pop cultur. Having recently been spending time than usual considering my weight for reasons legitimate potential future health complications and not so legitimate nasty comment made to me about it this book came along at the perfect time The book is author Lesley Kinzel s personal reflections on growing up and living today as a fat woman as well as her thoughts on how ridiculous and unjustified the whole fear of fat is in our culture This thought was captured in her title which makes reference to the idea that people think fat people will sit down and inhale two whole cakes at a sitting you know because that s what they do I wouldn t say any of her writing was revolutionary for me personally but then I have a pretty highly developed feminist consciousness Reading this book was in many ways a relief it reaffirmed just why I should not spend hours and hours obsessing over how I look I would definitely recommend it to women young and old who are suffering due to our society s psycho ideas about what is acceptable as Kinzel writes Your body is not a tragedy and will likely procure a copy for use with students in my someday women s issues discussion group

Re Lesley Kinzeltells stories gives advice and challenges stereotypes about being and feeling fat Kinzel says no to diet fads and pills shows by example how to stop hating your body celebrates self acceptance at any size and urges you to finally accept the truth your body is not a tragedyLesley Kin. Maybe my expectations for this book were too high but the lack of narrative arc and lack of chaptersection divisions didn t work for me The writing of course is amazing if somewhat lacking in the snark level I ve come to love from Lesley s blogging It s just a little too disjointed and unfocused as a book for me

review Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Lesley Kinzel

In the age of The Biggest Loser and the “war on obesity” we’re pressured to conform to certain body standards at any cost Sure everyone should eat right and get exercise but what if you do that and you still don’t fit into the clothes at the mall In Two Whole Cakes Fatshionista extraordinai. I feel like the whole book can be summed up by Lesley s motto Your body is not a tragedy I was pretty familiar with Lesley s work from her blog and XOJane so a lot of the book was familiar territory But for people not as familiar with her work it s a great primer on how to accept all bodies Even with the knowledge of some of the stories like the titular Two Whole Cakes episode it was still a really fun great read I got through the whole book in one day if that gives any idea how much I liked it

    There was one thing that I did not like about this book and while I feel it’s a little bit inappropriate to open a four star review with that

  6. says:

    I would give it 5 stars for the concept but am only give 4 because there was a lot of redundancy in the writing That aside the basic concept of the book is that women particularly are conditioned from an early age to hyperfocus on the appearance of our bodies not only to the distraction of the function of our bodies but to the detr

    It was interesting to read something that was so long that lacked any breaks but I think it worked Topics flowed into one another nicely

  9. says:

    I appreciate that the author didn't just talk about what fat people can do to love themselves but so shared the message that Everyone deserves respect and justice no matter what they look like and that you have every right to be happy with yourself on your terms with no need to apologize for your happiness to anyone

    An absolute delight with plenty of food for thought and a good chuckle or three along the way Consistent with Lesley's earlier writing online Clear palatable and no bullshit Lesley smashes the dominant paradigm with this very reader friendly book
