    1. If you have ever looked at your body in the mirror and said yuck, this is a book for you. Hirschmann argues that the loathing of fat is a by-product of our anti-female, misogynist culture. She points out that until women got the vote our naturally rounded and padded figures were accepted as the norm. Women turned their collective rage about being second-class citizens inward and began to loathe their feminine bodies. Thus, the flat-chested, boy-like figures that came into vogue in the 1920's. Sh [...]


    2. i randomly came across this gem of a book at bluestockings bookstore in the lower east side, and had actually bought for a friend of mine to read during the holidays. but after skimming through the intro and first chapter, i realized this is a book that *everyone* should really have on their shelf, no matter where you stand on the body/self-esteem spectrum. what i like about the book is that it offers a glimpse into the pervasive "bad body fever" which affects people of all sizes, shapes and age [...]


    3. This book reads a bit like a how-to manual, so if you're just interested in reading analysis of how our culture/media treat women's bodies then I would recommend Bitchfest, Carolyn Knapp's Appetites, or the Beauty Myth. If you want to learn steps to stop emotional eating or to adore your body at any size, then you'll really like this. That being said, this book definitely incorporates a heavy dose of feminism and cultural critique. I personally think any woman could benefit from reading this boo [...]


    4. This book had a very strong "fat is a feminist issue" slant to it that got tiresome very quickly. I also felt like this book did not address the health issues that come with being overweight. Accepting yourself at any size is all well and good except when you're having serious health problems affecting quality of life. I've read and liked many other "No Diet Diet Books" better than this one.


    5. I just read a really interesting blog post about how this book changed a girl's life. I really liked the ideas she highlighted. Although I feel like I'm in a really good spot now, it just seems like it has great ideologies for a life-long relationship with food and body perception--which, seriously, doesn't every girl need??


    6. Read this many years ago, when I finally decided to stop dieting and make peace with food and my body. It took longer than I thought to accomplish this, but this book definitely showed me the way. Every woman who obsesses about food or her body should read this book.



    7. This is a book that's helped me a lot in resolving my issues with body image and eating, even if it did take me a long time to get through. A definite recommendation for people who want to get off the never-ending diet train.


    8. Going back in for a more in-depth study of this one. Initial thoughts: while I don't agree with 100% of their methods, there is a lot here that bears considering. Will post an update once I've completed my second reading!



    9. Picked this book up off the free shelf at the library and the title intrigued me. After all, what woman doesn't hate something about their body? I am 40 and can't say that I have ever met a woman who doesn't hate something or want to lose weight at some point. The authors had some good points about binging in that when we deny ourselves from a certain food we set ourselves up for failure when we encounter it because we'll binge on it because our body goes into "starvation mode" for it. They also [...]


    10. Below is a repeat of my review to Overcoming Overeating and the reason I did this is that while this was the second book on the subject, they both are about the same method:I wish I could give this book MORE than 5 stars - I first read this book decades ago when it first came out and it "saved" my life - literally!Man or woman, but especially if you are a woman and have food compulsions, shame about food, have used food to take care of yourself, this method is the ONLY one I know of that works. [...]


    11. Munter and Hirschmann assert that we are "all born with perfectly adequate signals for hunger and satiation and that we can rediscover that inner knowledge of demand feeding, teaching us how to think about our problems rather than eat about them - so that food can resume its proper place in our lives."The fundamental tenet of this new thinking is that fat is not a moral violation nor is it a measure of intellect, popularity, sensitivity, leadership, or character. Your body size reflects your gen [...]


    12. There is much to say about this book. I will begin saying that I am glad I picked it up. There are some things or ideas in this book that I don't agree with 100% but I find that with all books. However, I found more helpful things in this book and I can overlook or adjust those things that I don't agree with to fit my situation and view.


    13. I didn't finish this book. I agree with a lot of what this book is putting across but it's far too full of misandry for my liking. It made it difficult for me to read and take anything positive from it. Luckily I already stopped hating my body!


    14. I was hoping for something else from this book. I was not looking for a feminist rant on how everything in my life is wrong because we live in a patriarchical society.My interest level dwindled quickly.




    15. This has been really helpful as I strive to find peace with my bodymething I think we're always struggling with even when we think we're happy!


    16. Five stars for the feminist commentary regarding societies asinine expectations of female bodies. Three stars for the anti-diet plan, which was most of the book.
