People who are overweight are frequently reminded of their weight and the need to lose it. Some point to the harmful effects of obesity on the body. TV advertisements featuring skinny models also do nothing to lessen the pressure to have the ideal body type, which causes overweight people to constantly feel dejected and dissatisfied. What if you were informed that you could be fat, healthy, and content? Roz Baker hopes to accomplish this through her book Fat, Fit, and Happy by letting plus-sized people know that they may find confidence in their weight, live a healthy lifestyle, and be fulfilled. Even though it is mentioned in passing, Baker does not provide advice on how to reduce weight as the goal is to make individuals realize the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle.
I've learned a lot from Fit, Fat, and Happy. It is jam-packed with knowledge that will change your life. Every statistic or piece of information is backed up by references, and the author always makes it clear to the reader when anything is her personal opinion to prevent misunderstandings. Roz Baker writes in such a casual, conversational way that reading her book seems like reading a letter from a close friend. This book explores the human body in great detail, explains why exercise is important, examines the various justifications people use for not exercising, and offers workable alternatives. It also responds to frequently asked questions about healthy living. I particularly admire the author's efforts to use illustrations to educate the reader about various activities. I am confident that everyone who reads the book will find it to be a blessing. I recommend it to anyone who genuinely wants to lead a healthy life.
