The Tyranny of Diets

In her first book, Iréné Celcer outlines the tyranny of the diet, uncovering the sacrifices that bulimic and anorexic women endure in order to achieve their ultimate obsession: to be thin.

—In Spanish

The author elucidates a passionate critique of the concept and practice of dieting, and demonstrates how most diets just do not work. According to the author, a diet provides nothing more than an illusion of healthy behavior. Unfortunately, millions fall prey to this illusion every day as their attempts to diet fail.
