Structure

The Big Skinny is organized into different sections based on the challenges Carol faced and the lessons she learned from them.  The memoir is shown graphically divided into sections based on events in her life.  She consistently refers to two personas; the healthy Carol, and the not healthy Carol.  She goes through each event in her life and analyzes them through her two personas.  Her unhealthy self, questions why she puts all of her effort into becoming healthy while her healthy-self educates her and inspires her.  David from the Huffington Post compares these two attitudes in everyday people.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-katz-md/do-we-need-a-fattitude-ad_b_509572.html
