    One thought on “Eat Fat”

    1. Dove into this, slogged through the word analysis chapter, and enjoyed reading the rest immensely. Writes in a little bit of a "heady" way, but still enjoyable. A nice break from self-help books--more academic.Some quotes from the book that I found striking: There is abundant evidence to suggest that attempts to curb your appetite voluntarily encourage the body to make fat, incite the impulse to binge, and are the precipitating cause of many eating disorders. Only four people out of a hundred co [...]

    2. As a great admirer of Klein's Cigarettes Are Sublime, I was rather disappointed with this book. It tends to be somewhat repetitive, and didn't have any of the close literary readings (or, really, much of any reading at all) that were the core of Cigarettes Are Sublime. It also, I thought, didn't have any of the great critical reasoning, the psychological observations, or the poetic descriptions that ran through Cigarettes Are Sublime. Eat Fat is, in general, a much more superficial and "popular" [...]

    3. Klein writes very well, but he seems deliberately contrarian to the point of exaggeration. He has a good point: American culture stigmatizes fat beyond reason and it would be healthier live with more tolerance of fat in people and within our own diets, however he is equally extreme with his arguments and lost me along the way.

    4. A re-read from 2001, though most of the material is from the late 1990s. Much of the mantra and discussion about fat-phobia is still relevant, so if you haven't read it, it's worth reading. I just wish the fat utopia happened after the Millennium. Alas!

    5. fuck yes. i love this total re-think of our fattist food culture. particularly cos klein is always so joyous and so inquisitive. made me love my loving to eat and gave me the theoretical gumption to to.
