The first grandchild born into his family in El Salvador, Alberto was showered with attention. Soon, though, he became known as "El Gordito, " the little fat boy. By the age of seven, he weighed 120 pounds and his pediatrician had started him on a diet. By age nine he had tried ten different diets. His life became a vicious cycle of eating to excess, sneaking food and lying to himself and his parents; teased by peers and strangers, he ultimately turned into a recluse, addicted to food and television. From this low point, Hidalgo-Robert chronicles how he was able to take hold of his life, reinvent himself and become a model for other teenagers who are battling weight issues. This book offers a roadmap for living a healthy life and regaining self-respect and social acceptance. Each chapter contains "battling" tools, examples of good and bad behavior and typical self-deceptions in the war to conquer oneself and live a healthier life.
