Description
In this fascinating memoir, twenty-year-old Alberto Hidalgo-Robert is passionate about overcoming his lifelong struggle with obesity. The first grandchild born into his family in El Salvador, Alberto was showered with attention and gifts. Soon, though, he became known as "El Gordito," or the little fat boy. By the age of seven, he weighed a whopping 120 pounds and his pediatrician had started him on a diet. By the time he was nine he had tried ten different diets. His life became a vicious cycle of eating to excess, sneaking food and lying to himself and his parents. He was the butt of practical jokes and was teased constantly by peers and strangers. Ultimately he became a recluse who was addicted to food and television. Hidalgo-Robert chronicles how he was able to take hold of his life, reinvent himself and become a model for others who are battling weight issues. An absorbing account of one young person's attempts to deal with obesity, each chapter contains "battling" tools, examples of both good and bad behavior and typical self-deceptions in the war to conquer oneself and live a healthier life. He even includes easy-to-make recipes for delicious foods that will appeal to any teenager. Book jacket.

display_description The first grandchild born into his family in El Salvador, Alberto was showered with attention. Soon, though, he became known as "El Gordito," the little fat boy. By the age of seven, he weighed 120 pounds and his pediatrician had started him on a diet. By age nine he had tried ten different diets. His life became a vicious cycle of eating to excess, sneaking food and lying to himself and his parents; teased by peers and strangers, he ultimately turned into a recluse, addicted to food and television. From this low point, Hidalgo-Robert chronicles how he was able to take hold of his life, reinvent himself and become a model for other teenagers who are battling weight issues. This book offers a roadmap for living a healthy life and regaining self-respect and social acceptance. Each chapter contains "battling" tools, examples of good and bad behavior and typical self-deceptions in the war to conquer oneself and live a healthier life.
