The book discusses why some girls are naturally fat and how to help them maintain their self-esteem. It addresses myths developing around 'childhood obesity' and argues that it is our pervasive dieting culture and lack of physical activity that put girls at risk. A major emphasis of the book is on overcoming barriers that stand in the way of girls being physically active.
Body Thieves includes a substantial listing of information and institutional resources, and throughout the book there are practical skills and strategies for use with girls.
The overall message to the reader: how to get connected with girls, get them off their diets and get them out being physically active.
