Fat cow, fat chance : the science and psychology of size

Murray, Jenni, 1950-2021
Books
At sixty-four, Jenni Murray's weight had become a disability. She avoided the scales, she wore a uniform of baggy black clothes, refused to make connections between her weight and health issues and told herself that she was fat and happy. She was certainly fat. But the happy part was an Oscar-winning performance. In private she lived with a growing sense of fear and misery that it would probably kill her before she made it to seventy. Interwoven with the science, social history and psychology of weight management 'Fat Cow, Fat Chance' is a refreshingly honest account of what it's like to be fat when society dictates that skinny is the norm.
