Virgie Tovar grew raised as a large girl and considered her physique to be repaired. But she was over it after two decades of diet and continual shame – and gave herself the liberty to trust her own body. She has helped others to do the same since then. Tovar is eager for a world where organisms are appreciated equally, food is devoid of moral judgment and respectful of life. In short and honest terms, she explores unlearning fatphobia, demolishes sexist ideas of fashion, and rejects the greatest lie of diet culture: these fat people need to wait before they get their best life started. The author has no interest in identifying or endorsing any sort of moderation, provided that the food and exercising for one purpose and cultural despotism for the other can be balanced. Their radical position is that emphasizing health & diet is only code for thin food and that diet culture consists of the marriage of the multi-billion-dollar diet sector (including exercise applications, over-the-counter diet pills, prescription drugs for appetite suppression, bariatric surgery, sports, and gymnastical rollers) to normalize weight control and fateful bigotry in social and cultural atmospheres. Whether or whether Tovar convinces all readers, it offers psychological consolation for people who have been rendered worthless because of their physical size and/or shape to ignore diet and exercise. Tovar tells out how boys and men seek to penalize women for failure to meet the standards as a standard in society. To prevent the exile of obese people, ladies should comply and obsess about their bodies because their work is simply attractive and slender. Nothing more can be desired for them, and once they have achieved this unachievable objective, life is so much easier. While this idea is clearly a banana, this is precisely the logic of our thinly obsessed society, which is brainwashing women and keeps white men in power—and control of women’s bodies.
