Description: Being fat is not a sin, but, argues Shelley Bovey, most overweight women are made to feel otherwise.

Shelley Bovey exposes the damaging nature of fat discrimination in all its forms, and reveals that this is a greater threat to a woman's physical and mental health than any of the medical risks associated with being fat. She puts tough questions to top surgeons, "dieticians" and others with a vested interest in women who wanted to be thinner and she talks to doctors who confess that prejudice rather than scientific fact prompts them to condemn fat women as "unhealthy".
