On "Morning Joe," she is often so adamant about improving America's eating habits that some people have dubbed her the food Nazi. What they don t know is that Mika wages a personal fight against food every day, and in "Obsessed," she describes her history of food obsession, distorted body image and her struggle to be thin.She believes it is time we stop blaming and shaming ourselves and look at the real culprits the food we eat and our addiction to it.
Remember the days when people whispered about cancer and called it the Big C ?Mika Brzezinski believes we need to stop whispering about weight and use the F word: "fat."We need to establish a dialogue on how our country became overweight and how we can turn the corner and step firmly onto the path of health. She starts with the example of her very close friend Diane, whose goal is to drop 70 pounds. As in her bestseller "Knowing Your Value," each chapter offers insights from notable people in medicine, health, business, the arts, and politics, interviews with, among others, White House chef Sam Kass, the late Nora Ephron, Gayle King, and Governor Chris Christie about what they have discovered about food and diet and what works for them. Mika's new audiobook will nurture a conversation with families and friends, in schools and kitchens, to help us all find the answers to a healthier America.
