Publisher's Summary

Fans of Issa Rae and Phoebe Robinson will love this collection of laugh-out-loud funny and insightful essays that explore race, feminism, pop culture, and how society reinforces the message that we are nothing without the perfect body.

By the time Chloé Hilliard was 12, she wore a size 12 - both shoe and dress - and stood over six feet tall. Fitting in was never an option. That didn’t stop her from trying. Cursed with a “slow metabolism”, “baby weight”, and “big bones” - the fat trilogy - Chloe turned to fad diets, starvation, pills, and workouts, all of which failed.

Realizing that everything - from government policies to corporate capitalism - directly impacts our relationship with food and our waistlines, Chloé changed her outlook on herself and hopes others will do the same for themselves.

The perfect mix of cultural commentary, conspiracies, and confessions, F*ck Your Diet pokes fun at the all too familiar, misguided quest for better health, permanent weight loss, and a sense of self-worth.

This book was better than I expected

I honestly went into this thinking this book would tell me how to kick my weight without kicking good food to the curb but it gave me so much more insight into life not only as a fellow emotional eater but as a black woman in America. Highly recommend!

My grass would be green if I watered it too.

Thank you for sharing, a breath of fresh air, and realistic perspective. It’s just what I needed to hear. ❤️💜💙

Food and Other Things

I've had this on order for months and was not disappointed. If there is one word to describe it, it is educational. The main takeaway is accept yourself as you are. Deserves more than five stars.
