Millions of full-figured women face discrimination and cruelty every day of their lives. Too many hopelessly struggle to conform to society's image of how a "real woman" should look.

Now, one man offers a bold new direction with this powerful and sensitive affirmation of the beauty, desirability, and sexiness of big women. Real Women Don't Diet! will alter the way the women of America view themselves.

How did Ken Mayer become such an outspoken and forceful advocate for the attractiveness of large women? He begins by revealing an intensely personal and intimate look at the realization of his own sexual fascination for big, beautiful women.

Real Women Don't Diet! explores the unrealistic roles that are created by the media. Ken exposes the male insecurities and frustrations which lead to the abuse of power and documents the forces behind the manipulation of women. It becomes clear how the interests of the fashion, medical, and fitness industries are served by making females feel overweight, unhealthy, and undesirable.

Real Women Don't Diet! is also a celebration of the triumphs of big women in their efforts to achieve a positive self-esteem. You'll hear the courageous stories of women who grew up "fat" by society's standards.

The author, a large size fashion photographer, includes portraits of women that capture added dimensions of beauty, shattering the stereotyped image of feminine sexiness.

Ken Mayer challenges women to take a stand and fight for the right to be themselves--regardless of their size; to refuse to be exploited. His message is simple, yet profound: large women are perfect, just as they are.

Real Women Don't Diet! will convince you that big women are attractive to the kind of men who desire women with presence--women who achieve their mental, emotional, and physical potential.
