It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a fat girl in possession of a donut, must be in want of dieting advice. Olivia Hayes is a self-proclaimed fat girl whose favorite remedy for self-disgust is a bag of chips or pan of brownies. At twenty years old, she's used to being told she's pretty "for a fat girl." When her junk food addiction leads to more embarrassment than comfort, Olivia knows that something has to change--but the thought has her longing to dive headfirst into a box of Little Debbie Fudge Rounds and never emerge. Olivia pins all hopes of salvation on a health and fitness major who swears they can help Olivia ditch the love handles and find the abs beneath her fat rolls. The catch? It's all going to be documented for a grad school scholarship application. One thing is certain: things are about to get personal.
