Fat Cow, Fat Chance

Fat Cow, Fat Chance

Jenni Murray  (Author)
Speaking to anyone who has ever stepped on to the scales and worried about their weight, Jenni Murray explores the relationship between psychology, science and size.

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-worthy performance. In private she lived with a growing sense of fear and misery that her weight 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. It asks why we overeat and why, when the weight is finally lost through dieting, do we simply pile the pounds back on again? How do we help young people become comfortable with the way they look? What are the consequences of the obesity epidemic for an already overstretched NHS? And, whilst fat shaming is so often called out, why is it that shouting ´fat cow´ at a woman in the street hasn´t been included in the list of hate crimes? Fusing politics, science and personal pain, this is a powerful exploration of our battle with obesity.
