In Clothes Called Fat


staff writer

Food’s the best. But peer pressure can make us do weird things, and when plump office worker Noko Hanazawa discovers that her boyfriend is bonking the blonde waif from work, she decides to take desperate measures. It’s time to lose weight, no matter the cost.

In Clothes Called Fat, by Moyocco Anno Translated by Vertical.
Vertical, Manga.

But… Food is just so lovely. Cake and cookies and sandwiches and sushi — rather than give up all that good stuff, bulimia seems an easier way, and as every purge makes her skinnier, happiness seems assured. Three guesses how that turns out.

Though the perfunctory English translation renders the story a little flat, Moyoco Anno’s manga explores the psychological side of eating disorders in a believable way, and reminds us that health and happiness do not come from blind conformity.

    I was overweight and tried so many things. Different things work for different people and I was lucky enough to find one that worked for me. I lost 19 pounds in one month without much exercise and it’s been a life changer. I’m a little embarrased to post my before and after photos here but if anyone actually cares to hear what I’ve been doing then I’d be happy to help in any way. Just shoot me an email at oceanflowers82@gmail.com and I’ll show you my before and after photos, and tell you about how things are going for me with the stuff I’ve tried. I wish someone would have helped me out when I was struggling to find a solution so if I can help you then it would make my day
