According to Roth, ridiculous appearance ideals cause a lot of problems for women, and most weight-loss programs only make the situation worse. Diets in particular can be physically abusive and often lead to impulse disturbances like binge eating and problems with self-loathing and isolation. Roth uses the tragic story of her own weight struggle to support her plea that women focus on improving their emotional integration. They need to accept themselves and nurture their bodies by establishing a balanced, intentional relationship with food. Though loosely organized, her ideas, expressed by actress Susan Clark with heartfelt understanding, will ring true with unsuccessful dieters.
