The Heavy: A Mother, a Daughter, a Diet

The Heavy: A Mother, A Daughter, A Diet--A Memoir - Dara-Lynn Weiss This book changed the way I think about the childhood obesity epidemic. I saw glimpses of myself in the judgmental acquaintances and well-meaning friends that made this mother-daughter story more difficult. I would love to see this book as a community read, if only to start a real conversation about this pervasive issue. While I don't agree with all of the author's conclusions, I found the book thought-provoking and accessible.
