Publisher's Summary

From the extra pounds and bullies that left her eating lunch alone at school to the low self-esteem that left her both physically and emotionally vulnerable to abuse, Jasmin Singer's weight defined her life. Even after she embraced a vegan lifestyle and a passion for animal rights advocacy, she defied any skinny vegan stereotypes by getting heavier. It was only after she committed to juice fasts and a diet of whole foods that she lost almost a hundred pounds and realized what it means to be truly full.

Told with humble humor and heartbreaking honesty, this is Jasmin's story of how she went from finding solace in a box of cheese crackers to finding peace within herself.

Touching and inspirational

Jasmin gives such a painfully honest account of growing up overweight, bullied, and struggling with food addiction. I don't usually read memoirs but this one hit home for me. Highly recommend for anyone struggling with weight/image/food issues. This will definitely change you as it has me!

Thank you Jasmin for taking us on your so relatable journey. I too am struggling with being a somewhat junk food vegan and this helped me and my mother both so much <3

Depth of personal insight

Initially I wanted to just stop listening in an effort to avoid hearing truths that are better left unsaid. The reality is that Jaz is not me and I we are not going to find the truths however, the insight and courage is what kept me going to the end.

A moving, amusing, illuminating listen.

I really loved this book. I'm familiar with Jasmin through the Our Hen House podcast, and primarily bought this as I can't get enough of her charisma!
A very interesting insight into a form of addiction not given much media attention. It certainly opened my eyes to food addiction, and made me consider how I myself may be behaving towards "fat" people in my community. It horrified me!

I think a lot of women could relate to issues highlighted in this book, and it is also a gateway for learning more about feminism, animal rights and activism.

Refreshingly Honest

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this refreshingly honest book and yes, it has made me think a little deeper on body image and personal hang-ups that can be crippling - a change has started to happen so thank you Jasmin.
