Publisher's Summary

From the extra pounds and bullies that left her eating lunch alone at school to the low self-esteem that left her both physically and emotionally vulnerable to abuse, Jasmin Singer's weight defined her life. Even after she embraced a vegan lifestyle and a passion for animal rights advocacy, she defied any skinny vegan stereotypes by getting heavier. It was only after she committed to juice fasts and a diet of whole foods that she lost almost a hundred pounds and realized what it means to be truly full.

Told with humble humor and heartbreaking honesty, this is Jasmin's story of how she went from finding solace in a box of cheese crackers to finding peace within herself.

Touching and inspirational

Jasmin gives such a painfully honest account of growing up overweight, bullied, and struggling with food addiction. I don't usually read memoirs but this one hit home for me. Highly recommend for anyone struggling with weight/image/food issues. This will definitely change you as it has me!

Thank you Jasmin for taking us on your so relatable journey. I too am struggling with being a somewhat junk food vegan and this helped me and my mother both so much <3

A great book to listen to!

It was a pleasure to listen to Jasmin's voice throughout this book! Listening to her story has inspired me to continue on my journey of transitioning to veganism. You rock, Jas. :)

Not what I expected, could use trigger warnings

I did not know much about Jasmin before reading this. I had heard her on a vegan podcast, not her own and thought his book was about overcoming disordered eating with veganism. It’s is not really that. She was still very disordered while vegan and did not overcome disordered eating until adopting juice fasting which some might argue is also problematic. However, she did get results.
Besides the expected triggers of binge eating and anorexia/starvation. Readers need to be aware that other potentially triggering topics include date rape, graphic language in the harm done to animals on factory farms, self harm, and bullying.
I think I would have liked the narrative better if it stayed chronological. She discusses first food/being fat, then transition to vegetarian and vegan, the transition to lesbianism, then tattoos. When you are in the vegan part, you revisit previous years that you have already heard about and have to pull that all up again. Same with Sexual journey, rewind and play it all again for a new perspective, same with tattoos, although this section is much shorter. One chronological narrative would have been less confusing and a little shorter and I think equally as powerful. The section on juice fasting is very long and can be a bit much if that is not what you were planning to do.
The performance is excellent and I admire Jasmin for her passion, ability to overcome and willingness to share.

Depth of personal insight

Initially I wanted to just stop listening in an effort to avoid hearing truths that are better left unsaid. The reality is that Jaz is not me and I/we are not going to find the truths however, the insight and courage is what kept me going to the end.

A moving, amusing, illuminating listen.

I really loved this book. I'm familiar with Jasmin through the Our Hen House podcast, and primarily bought this as I can't get enough of her charisma!
A very interesting insight into a form of addiction not given much media attention. It certainly opened my eyes to food addiction, and made me consider how I myself may be behaving towards "fat" people in my community. It horrified me!

I think a lot of women could relate to issues highlighted in this book, and it is also a gateway for learning more about feminism, animal rights and activism.

Refreshingly Honest

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this refreshingly honest book and yes, it has made me think a little deeper on body image and personal hang-ups that can be crippling - a change has started to happen so thank you Jasmin.
