Mindy is thick, fluffy, or chubby depending on your culture. But she is definitely not feeling the motto Eat, and Love Yourself. However, when she finds a chocolate bar labeled like that, she hopefully tries it with eye-opening results.
Eating disorders and bad self-esteem are serious and this book handles them responsively. Anyone who wasn’t popular knows that middle school and high school are a challenge just to power through. But once at college or working, everything seems so much better. Still school, and life in general, would be so much better with a chocolate bar that prevents hunger.
While this is an empowering story, I’m not sure how entertaining it is. It feels like a public service announcement. However, if you or someone you know has self-esteem issues over their weight, Eat, and Love Yourself might be the perfect read. For me, it came off as too preachy. 3 stars.
