The Ministry of Thin PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Ministry of Thin free pdf We're obsessed with weight, we dislike our bodies, we worry about the food we eat, we feel guilty, we diet. Too many of us are locked into a war with our own bodies which we'll never win, and which will never make us happy. "The Ministry of Thin" takes a controversial, unflinching look at how the modern, international obsession with weight loss, youth, beauty, and perfection has spun out of control. Emma Woolf, author of " An Apple a Day, " explores how we might all be able to stop hating and start liking our own bodies again. She rallies against the industries of food, health, exercise, beauty, sex, and surgery that seek to create a world that verges on the Orwellian --with the victims of this onslaught trapped and dominated by the societal pressures to conform. And she dares to ask: if losing weight is the answer, what is the question?
