“Golda is a wonderful spokesperson for Health At Every Size. Her writing is always a great combination of impassioned persuasion and practical advice and inspiration.”

–Linda Bacon, PhD, nutrition researcher/professor and author of Health At Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight

“If we all took her advice, we’d stop measuring our worth in pounds and inches, and make peace with the bodies we actually have, not a fictitious body that our fatphobic society wants to convince us we should want. We’d be happier, healthier, and have lot more fun in our lives!”

–Bill Fabrey, NAAFA founder, 1969, Council on Size & Weight Discrimination, Membership Chair, Association for Size Diversity and Health
