About the author

Marci Warhaft-Nadler is a body image advocate, writer, and founder of the “Fit vs Fiction” project, which is aimed at arming kids with the self-confidence they need to tune out negative messages and be exactly who they want to be instead of who they think they’re supposed to be. She frequently appears in the media breaking down the dangerous myths related to beauty and fitness. Marci is a published author, founder of the Fit vs Fiction workshops and a writer for the Huffington Post. Like too many young women these days, Marci struggled with body image issues for most of her life. Feeling like she could never live up to the unrealistic standards she had set for herself, she often resorted to unhealthy diet and exercise techniques that resulted in emotional and physical problems that she struggled with for years. Her amazing recovery and ability to turn trauma into triumph has been her catalyst for reaching out to other young men and women who are facing the same obstacles. Fit vs. Fiction (www.fitvsfiction.com) allows Marci to tell her story in an engaging and meaningful way. Her in-depth group seminars and one-on-one counselling allow her to connect with her audience by focusing on real-life examples, and dissecting them to reveal the ugly truth behind the pretty pictures.
