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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Reading Big Girl is like spending time with your utterly authentic and devastatingly articulate new friend. Kelsey Miller strikes a pitch perfect balance between criticizing our deeply warped cultural attitudes toward body image and reminding us all that we’re personally responsible for—and capable of—rising above the insanity.” Kelsey Osgood, author of How to Disappear Completely
“Smart, sane, and funny, Big Girl is the wise friend that every person should have by their side when navigating the bizarre extremes of modern eating. With grace and humor, Kelsey Miller sheds light on the hazards of a culture obsessed with dieting—and shows us that self-acceptance and intuition can offer a way out.” Alexandra Kleeman, author of You Too Can Have a Body like Mine
“In less capable hands, Big Girl might have been another garden-variety memoir or diet book. With Miller in charge, however, we see these two genres woven cleverly together to tell a story that—if you’re in possession of a beating heart—will promise to amuse, educate and inspire.” Sara Barron, author of The Harm in Asking
