Summary
"As lightning-rod writer Dara Weiss explains in The Heavy, the "mommy wars" were never more clear than over the issue of her 7-year-old daughter's weight. Some moms looked down on her for "letting" Bea get clinically obese. But that's nothing compared with the scorn others offered when Dara put Bea on a strict calorie-counting diet. Some said she was clearly seeding body image issues; many others suggested the pat, "healthier" food route. The Heavy shares Weiss's harrowing and haunting family journey through Bea's considerable weight loss (Bea is no longer considered overweight), while the scrutiny and commentary swirled around them"-- Provided by publisher.
