Losing weight has become the modern woman’s holy grail… everything will be better when we’re thin.

We’re obsessed with weight, we dislike our bodies, we worry about the food we eat, we feel guilty, we diet… Too many of us are locked into a war with our own bodies which we’ll never win, and which will never make us happy.

The Ministry of Thin takes a controversial, unflinching look at how the modern obsession with weight loss, youth, beauty and perfection got out of control. Emma Woolf, author of An Apple a Day, explores how we might all be able to stop hating and start liking our own bodies again. And she dares to ask: if losing weight is the answer, what is the question?

‘ I see now that the fear I felt was unnecessary. I see that letting go can be as natural as the way water flows along the riverbed. Life doesn’t need to be a struggle. Letting go is the strongest thing I’ve ever done...' As ‘modern’ women, being truly happy and successful can feel like something of a contradiction. We’re supposed to be independent, confident and strong, but we also face relentless pressures to look young, slim and beautiful.Could it be time for us to face our insecurities and accept our imperfections, to respect ourselves no matter what, and learn to love the skin we’re in? Do we have the guts to let go and be happy? Exploring the issues of love, loss, healing and happiness, this manifesto for freedom from one of feminism’s liveliest voices will guide you on the path to feeling newly, truly confident.

What if life could be simpler and slower, purer and more primal? As our world becomes more connected, many of us are left feeling more disconnected than ever. The more time we spend working, consuming, socialising online, the less our real lives make sense. Positively Primal is about slowing down, reconnecting with the food we eat, with the strength and beauty of our bodies, rediscovering respect for our individuality and those around us... And most of all, remembering what it means to be human. Drawing on everything from modern science to ancient philosophy, contemporary culture to common sense, this is a manifesto for a more human-friendly, earth-friendly existence – without rules or deprivation. Join Emma Woolf on a journey to reclaim the peace that nature provides, find fulfilment in the everyday, rejoice in humanity and live a positively primal life
