Fat Girl Book Club

#veryfat #verybrave by Nicole Byer with Amy Rapone

Episode Summary

I have been reading some really intense books lately. Not only am I reading some really meaty body acceptance books but I'm also a true crime fan and I've been reading a book filled with a bunch of stories of local cold cases, so I needed a break. #Veryfat #Verybrave was perfect. It is a cross between a book and a magazine. It has a dozen or so pages about accepting your body and then the rest is some amazing photos of Nicole Byer in a bikini. In case you haven't heard of Nicole, she is a comedian so you bet reading this is a fun way to spend an hour. My guest is Amy Rapone, a fat-positive registered dietician and we had a blast talking about some of the concepts Nicole Byer discusses. We talk about wearing a bikini and what it means to be fat and brave, among other things.
