    Mika Brzezinski is at war against obesity. She believes the fearsome subjects of food, diet and body image are “radioactive” in America, and getting worse.  On Morning Joe, she is often so adamant about improving America’s eating habits that some people have dubbed her “the food Nazi.” What they don’t know is that Mika wages a personal fight against food every day, and in Obsessed, she describes her history of food obsession, distorted body image and her struggle to be thin. She believes it is time we stop blaming and shaming ourselves and look at the real culprits—the food we eat and our addiction to it. Remember the days when people whispered about cancer and called it “the Big C”? Mika Brzezinski believes we need to stop whispering about weight and use the F word: fat. more
