    A non fiction book that is humorous and with a strong story line… must have made up for an awesome read. Really liked your review Ritu… it gave me the real feel of the book. And I can’t agree more with what uv stated, that in the end we are the same people whether living on that side of the border or this.

    I look forward to your reviews, Ritu. This one has piqued my curiosity. My friend is not even 5 feet tall but her daughter is very huge. Strange are the ways of the creator. He gives birth to such different sizes.

    I’ve been fat all my life and have faced fat shaming very early on. I’m sure there are going to be several relatable instances in this book.

      Seriously I know what can fat do to one person, I have been plump kid amd a fat girl and finally a fat lady. Somehow I never wanted to be skinny, I wanted to be just fit enough but I love myself the way I am chubby cheeks.

    Recently my neighbors delivered a baby girl which is too much fatty. When she was 3 months old she look like 7 -8 months baby. I always wonder how can she manage. Your review make me curious to read this book. It is about the character and food too.

    I saw this book a few weeks ago and almost picked it up. Delighted to get your perspective on the book. Your write up is so vivid, I love it. Agree with you about the similarities in culture. I have seen it first hand in states, Indian Mom’s not allowing their preteens to eat grapes so as to maintain a certain body weight. Mothers carry and pass on the guilt. Body shaming is a mental health issue on either side of the scale. I enjoy reading you reviews. 🙂

    I liked the way you said that borders may have separated us but the culture is the same. This looks like a really good book. I will pick it up soon. And I also want to check out the recipes.

    A nonfiction book that is both humorous and has a strong story line piqued my interest. Not only are our cultures similar, but so are we. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your review.

    i had seen this book on Kindle store i think recently but hadn’t gone to reading the details. Though fiction is my favourite, iam also liking selective real life stories these days. And your recommendations are always awesome…..so maybe i will go ahead and try this one.

    …a body that gets the job done but that refuses to meet the expectations of others. All I’ve needed to hear to not just immediately look up this book, but also to validate my own struggles with my weight over the years.
