Scared Skinny No More!
Exposing the Myths of Weight Bias and Weight Loss
By Mary Dimino & Dr. Brad Johnson
Do you awake every morning to the same grueling ritual of the daily "weigh in"? Do you think... Oh God! Please let it be less than yesterday. Are you enslaved to a mythical weight and shape that our culture says you should be or otherwise you are deemed a failure? Are you literally "Scared Skinny" because you have been conditioned to think that you are lazy, unlovable and unworthy if you aren't thin?
How did weight become such a focus of our culture? It was created by a perfect storm scenario beginning in the 1980's and 1990's. During this period technological advances made our lives much more sedentary than any other point in history. The invention of processed foods made food more convenient to purchase and consume. This was also the time of a new exercise revolution where everyone, especially celebrities, were looking to get fit and tone. When these celebrities lost 5 pounds it made all the media outlets, and everyone clamored to know their secret.
"Scared Skinny No More" reveals the components of the perfect storm scenario that have left women feeling powerless and responsible for their inability to control their weight and their lives. Scared Skinny examines the many foods and products that contain obesogens which make us fat and unhealthy. This book also includes a chapter called “Think Like a Man.” This chapter provides unique insight into how men view weight, dieting, and the female shape, which will bring a new perspective to women.
Scared Skinny No More offers strategies and support to take control of your life and make a new beginning after the storm has passed. It's time for your new beginning! Connect with Mary Dimino.
