Summary
  • The first edition of Livin' Large was written in the spirit of humor and understanding, as a conversation between two sisters, Dr. Stacy Ann Mitchell and her sister, Teri D. Mitchell. Together they tackled the severity of one of the most dangerous illnesses plaguing African-American women today-obesity-from opposite sides of the fence. Dr. Mitchell in her candid, yet sympathetic tone and Teri with her "we live in the real world" response provided an important look at how obesity, and being overweight is directly related to health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, and joint disease
  • In this revised edition the gloves have come off. Dr. Stacy Ann Mitchell presents alarming statistics on the rate of obesity, and illnesses related to obesity in the Black community. In the new Introduction, Dr. Mitchell let's us know that she no longer accepts excuses. And, in Food Is Medicine, a newly added chapter she provides direct, straight-forward advice on how to make healthier life choices. Teri provides the reader with her four-week plan, taking heed to her sister's advice
  • Livin' Large Revised Edition confronts obesity head on, and gives women the information they need to: Control obesity and stay healthy, Meet goals for a healthy weight and good health, Work with their healthcare providers, Take action!
