Mika: her obsession is to not be judged for being a food nazi.

Y’all, I had such conflicted feelings about this book. Having recently written my own (much shorter) tale of food and fatness, I was kind of surprised when the library let me know Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction—and My Own was waiting for me. I had put it on my request list, probably before it was released in early 2013, and had completely forgotten about it. It’s a blissfully short read, so there is that. Don’t get me wrong, it’s engagingly written, and there were a few times when I was totally on board with Mika Brzezinski’s admonitions to be healthier in both mind and body.
