Publisher Description

Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls is a manifesto and call to arms for women of all sizes and ages. With smart and spirited eloquence, veteran blogger Jes Baker calls on women to be proud of their bodies, fight against fat-shaming, and embrace a body-positive worldview to change public perceptions and help women maintain mental health.
With the same straightforward tone that catapulted her to national attention when she wrote a public letter addressing the sexist comments of Abercrombie & Fitch's CEO, Jes shares personal experiences along with in-depth research in a way that is approachable, digestible, and empowering. Featuring notable guest authors, Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls is an invitation for all women to reject fat prejudice, learn to love their bodies, and join the most progressive, and life-changing revolution there is: the movement to change the world by loving their bodies.

Life Changing

Read it. I couldn’t believe there were people feeling the same as me. This was an amazing, eye opening book. My journey has begun.

Should Be Required Reading

I wish I had read this book 10 years ago. I wish this book had existed 10 years ago. I needed so much of what was in this book. I pretty much needed all of what was in this book. If you don’t think you’re pretty enough, skinny enough, big enough, small enough, (fill in the blank) enough... basically if you don’t think you’re enough for the world, a lover, yourself (so everyone), this book is for you. Everyone should read this book. This book should be required reading. This book is perfection. Jes Baker is now my spirit animal, and I’m pretty sure she’s got a fairly solid world peace plan (hint: it involves more orgasms for everyone).

OMG! I LOVED this book

Jes Baker truly captured the concept of self-acceptance and love in this book. While reading I found myself shaking my head yes while speaking, “I know that’s right,” out loud.

I also found she included pertinent information and statistics. As an advocate, information such as this can be useful when advocating on behalf of the body positive movement.

I will be re-reading and referencing this book often. To quote Travis from ‘Clueless, I give it, “Two very enthusiastic thumbs up! It’s fine holiday fun.”
