Bernarr Macfadden (1868-1955) entertained and instructed Americans for decades. He championed physical exercise, fasting, and diet reform and was the relentless scourge of established doctors. He presented his views in Physical Culture, a popular magazine featuring photographs of strong men and healthy women and articles promoting the healthy life. While some critics derided him as a health nut, no one could dispute his genius as a magazine publisher. He established the world's greatest magazine publishing empire through the innovation of such popular publications as True Story, the first confession magazine; True Detective; and many others.

Read Nancy Redd's blogs and other content on the Penguin Community. The New York Times bestselling author of Body Drama addresses anxieties young women face about weight, diet, exercise, and body image. At a time when both obesity and eating disorders are on the rise, Harvard graduate and former Miss Virginia Nancy Redd provides a much- needed resource for millions of young women and concerned parents. In her uniquely reassuring "big sister" voice and with a fresh, fun, and frank attitude that has made her the nation's go-to girl for body issues, Nancy addresses the common, painful, and shameful "diet dramas" that most mainstream diet and nutrition books miss, including: "I think I'm healthy, but medical charts say I'm not"; "I can't afford a gym so I can't exercise properly"; and "I just want to have weight loss surgery and be done with it." Nancy's advice is vetted by a leading adolescent medicine expert and the book is packed with informative "fast facts," moving personal anecdotes of Nancy's own diet experiences, and revolutionary real-deal four-color photographs of young women sized 2 to 22. Finally, a food and fitness book that doesn't condescend or blame, Diet Drama begins with body image and shows readers that health comes in all shapes and sizes. Watch a Video
