    Originally written as just one book which was predominantly theory based Susie Orbach wrote a second book in response to the demand for practical solutions to the weighty issue of weight gainloss I did not get on at all with the first section of the book where Susie Orbach set out to show that fat is indeed a feminist issue I did not relate to any of the descriptions of womanhood that she described and felt that the gender roles were very outdated and hopefully no longer relevant at least not for me and my friendsI found the second half of the book useful Orbach gives the reader advice and techniues to use with the aim of ‘breaking the addiction to compulsive eating – to transform eating and mealtimes into pleasurable experiences that we can look forward to’ There is the usual advice ofEating when you are hungryEating the food your body is hungry forFinding out why you eat when you aren’t hungryTasting every mouthful andStopping eating the moment you are fullAlong with psychological tips and exercises to help you do thisThe techniues that Susie Orbach introduces us to are useful and effective however I believe that there are much up to date easier to read and ascetically pleasing books out there which would tick the same boxes

    This book is healingI first read it in my early 20s and cried through every page I then remained a consistent 8 stone for 20 years with zero anxt it became absorbed into my subconsciousThen in 2005 my mum died and I started comfort eating again I have tried other self help emotional eating books including Paul McKenna to no avail I am now reading this amazing book again and it moves me deeply While some of the politics are a little outdated the core message of how food is completely bound up in our emotions holds trueAgain I am crying through every pageI have changed over the years and different parts of the book speak to me now than the parts that spoke to me before That is the amazing power of this book it speaks to the heart and so is timelessThrough this book I am dealing with issues with my mum that have remained buried since she passed away It is painful It is healing It answers the true need for comfort that is never answered by chocolate even Lindt

    Susie Orbach is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist She is in fact a Psychoanalyst I've found out and therefore must respect her by giving her proper title who famously worked with the late Prencess of Wales she has written a number of books which have become reuired reading for trainee psychotherapists and counsellors She cofounded the Womens' therapy centres in the UK and US with Louise Eichenbaum So her credentials are never in doubtMost psychoanalitic therapist do not bring politics into the consulting room but rather analyse it within the transference and the patient's other relationships when the patient brings political issues into the therapy session This has always been criticised by Jefrey Masson Against TherapyDo politics have a place in therapy? Everything we do is influenced and governed by politics and the media and Women know this than anyone It is true that globally and politically men have controlled women and womens' bodies So that not all neurosis come from inside the patient many causal factors come from outsideIn her groups Susie Orbach gets women to accept and love themselves as they are and gentally helps them change their relationship with food She doesen't advocate going on diets and she encourages women to find their own weight and not be defined by the media Which is poignient in the present day with our over photoshopped immagesI am reading this partly because I felt inspired to do so because I trained as a counsellor and because I have become drawn towards feminist issues as a resault of watching the Vagina Monologues But I also think that even I as a man can benefit from this book because I have been struggling with my weight and I think parts of this book are helpful for both sexes Further Men should read this and other books by Susie Orbach Because we need to wise up about how male society has been controlling women

    I am coming late to this book and have been amazed at how current it still sounds Susie has a very uniue take on women's issues with their weight which made me reflect on my personal relationship with my body and how I have consciously or unconsciously steered my body weight in various directions through lifeI have been an intuitive eater for about 6 months now and it has honestly been one the most liberating and empowering things that has affected not only how I view my body but also other major aspects of my life ie how I choose to relate to others and view my place in life in general Having read a good few books on the subject I would say the Fat is Feminist Issue has cleared up any last remaining niggles about whether was doing right by my body and mind If you are new to the idea of ditching diets for good and eating intuitively this book may be a little hard to swallow as a first read but certainly a great option to progress to as you get acuainted with the subjectSusie is an incredibly perceptive writer and manages to present in a cohesive way the complexity of what it is like to be a woman today and how the various pressures that society applies on girls and women affects their own relationship with their bodiesThe ideas Susie Obrach puts across are truly ground braking and valid This really is one of those books that every adolescent girl should have the chance to read I really enjoyed the combination of psychological analysis through the eyes of a feminist of such an emotive issue as one's weight

    Really fantastic book one to read a few times because you'll forget or miss so much on the first read Gebius woman with a way of communicating that helps those without a Phd in psychotherapy to understand underlying issues to behavioural patterns
