What’s a fat girl to wear? Does being fat make you an extreme loser? Do fat people eat cake all day? Lesley Kinzel challenges current ideas of fatness in everything from beauty myths, fashion trends, eating habits, and sexual identity. With humor and insight, she explains how the unintended consequences of the war on obesity make casualties of us all. 

“I am extremely grateful that Lesley Kinzel is flooding cyberspace with provocative conversations about the political, financial, emotional, and spiritual struggles resulting from America's obsession with weight.” —Camryn Manheim, actor and author of Wake Up, I’m Fat!

"Every single page of this book contains an AHA! moment. Two Whole Cakes is super empowering and fun to read—you seriously can't put it down. I've read it twice, and I'm keeping it for my daughter." —Jane Pratt, founding editor of xoJane and Sassy

“This accessible blend of memoir and cultural theory is a lifeline and a love letter; one is better off in the world for having read it.” —Marianne Kirby, co-author of Lessons From the Fat-o-Sphere

Two Whole Cakes is a vulnerable, funny, whip-smart, incendiary book that offers a delightfully readable way out of our culture's unrealistic expectations of body size and appearance.” —Hanne Blank, author of Big Big Love
