A hilarious and inspiring memoir about one young woman’s journey to find a better path to both physical and mental health.

At twenty-nine, Kelsey Miller had done it all: crash diets, healthy diets, and nutritionist-prescribed “eating plans,” which are diets that you pay more money for. She’d been fighting her un-thin body since early childhood, and after a lifetime of failure, finally hit bottom. No diet could transform her body or her life. There was no shortcut to skinny salvation. She’d dug herself into this hole, and now it was time to climb out of it.
With the help of an Intuitive Eating coach and fitness professionals, she learned how to eat based on her body’s instincts and exercise sustainably, without obsessing over calories burned and thighs gapped. But, with each thrilling step toward a healthy future, she had to contend with the painful truths of her past.
BIG GIRL chronicles Kelsey’s journey into self-loathing and disordered eating-and out of it. This is a memoir for anyone who’s dealt with a distorted body image, food issues, or a dysfunctional family. It’s for the late-bloomers and the not-yet-bloomed. It’s for everyone who’s tried and failed and felt like a big, fat loser. So, basically, everyone.

The way the book went back and forth between her personal life and…

Best book I have read this year I loved this book so much, after reading it on my Kindle, I immediately downloaded the Audible version and listened to the author read her own work. Kelsey Miller is funny, smart, humble, and incredibly insightful. I wish I had had access to this book and her wisdom waaaay back when I was in my early twenties. Don’t think this is for just young(er) women, either. I am 58 and found so much in common with this talented writer and amazingly vulnerable woman. I’m a fan now and will be…

That’s pretty cool: ) I think this book might change my life? That’s pretty cool :)I’m not really “fat” or “skinny” but I’ve had issues with eating all my life. I worried I might not be able to relate to a fat positive book because I’m not clearly “fat”. And yet I found many of the experiences and relationships of the author with food to speak to my own. I felt better about myself, and hopeful. Reading this book made me realize that I’ve been dieting constantly since before I became a…
