MEADVILLE, Pa. (PRWEB) August 28, 2018
“My Last Diet (Or How I Learned to Stop Eating Like a Pig and Became a Nicer Person)”: a remarkable woman’s memoir of weight loss. “My Last Diet” is the creation of published author Julie Metzger Palmer, a middle-aged mother of three who has lived in California, Maryland, and Nashville.
Palmer shares how it all started, “Maybe it started with the pickles. When I was a child, the grocery store was an almost mythical place. Only mothers went there once a week, on Tuesday, to procure the weekly rations. Some mothers brought home the glories that I only dreamed about—Fruit Loops, soda pop, candy, boxed doughnuts, and frozen pizza. Those extravagances never emerged from the countless brown paper bags my mom brought home, and I knew those luxuries were for the rich kids or at least for those families with only a couple of kids to feed. My mom had to stretch a dollar. Shopping was serious business; no kids allowed! So it was with no little excitement that I finally accompanied my mother to the grocery store. I was ten years old that day. What better birthday surprise than to be allowed to go to the grocery store for the first time?”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Julie Metzger Palmer’s new book is an unforgettable journey through the culture of food in the US as well as Congo, Afghanistan, Nepal, Haiti, and North Korea, generously mixed in with a blend of good humor and poignant introspection.
Palmer’s witty bare-all, like all great stories, was born from impulse and desperation and ended in self-discovery. It will open eyes and change more than a few perspectives.
