Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls is a manifesto and call to arms for women of all sizes and ages. With smart and sassy eloquence, veteran blogger Jes M. Baker calls on women to be proud of their bodies, fight against fat-shaming, and embrace a body-positive worldview to change public perceptions and help women maintain mental health.



  • Jes Baker really hits the nail on the head with the powerful messages in "Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls: A Handbook for Unapologetic Living." These messages about self-love are crucial and should be embraced by everyone. However, one minor gripe is that the sidebars in the audiobook are read in the same spot they would be found in the physical book, which can interrupt the flow of the material.
  • I thought this book was just average. Pros: I really agreed with a lot of what Jes had to say. I'm all for body positivity and embracing all aspects of life. Screw the media and its narrow standards of beauty and worth. It's important to know your own value as a person. Take selfies, have great sex, go for a run, rock that bikini - absolutely! Diets and the culture around them can go to hell. You should feel beautiful and worthy at any size. Love your body, no matter what size it is. Cons: This book had a bit of a cheesy vibe and sometimes read like a young adult novel (although I wouldn't recommend it to actual young adults, especially the health and doctor section. Fat around the heart can cause issues, and let's not ignore the reality of diabetes. Wanting to eat salad, exercise, and maintain a size you feel comfortable with, all with a healthy mindset, is perfectly fine.). There were moments when the book felt scattered, contradictory, and repetitive. It definitely had its preachy moments, and I hate to say it, but it was a bit too sensitive. Personally, I have no problem with the word "pretty" or not wanting to be naked for a cause. I enjoy wearing flattering outfits. You can be slim, exercise, wear makeup, and high heels, and still be a feminist. Some parts of the book were just too extreme and overbearing. The overall message of the book was good, but it didn't really grab me.
  • At first, I thought this book did an excellent job promoting body positivity by emphasizing the idea of being healthy at any size. As a therapist specializing in eating disorders among adolescents, I wanted to determine if this book would be suitable to recommend or use in my practice. However, I found it perplexing that Chapter 10 focused on gender and transgender topics, as it didn't seem directly related to the main theme. Additionally, Chapter 11 discussed cancel culture, where if a store doesn't offer clothing in my size, we would boycott them. Personally, I felt this diverted from the book's main message.
