Chloe Hilliard is a female comedienne who has had it with diets. In fact, F*ck Your Diet.
This is a humorous book describing the author’s journey from fried Southern food to veganism (mostly). Beginning as a young child, Chloe was thick. Chocolate was her first word. She had a “torrid love affair with cereal”. Many of her stories, like being forced to eat everything on her plate because of starving African children, will seem eerily familiar—at least to women of a certain age and girth.
However, it is also much more. As the author states, “I never imagined this would venture into systematic oppression, political agendas, conspiracy theories, sex tips, and traumatizing relationships.” If you love food documentaries like Super Size Me and Food, Inc., you should read F*ck Your Diet—especially if you are a thick woman of any color. I enjoyed it plus it made me forgive myself for the French fries I ate for breakfast this morning. 4 stars!
Thanks to Gallery Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
