According to family lore, when Rabia Chaudry’s family returned to Pakistan for their first visit since moving to the United States, two-year-old Rabia was more than just a pudgy toddler. Despite her parents plying her with all the wrong foods, they were highly concerned for the future for their large-sized daughter. How would she ever find a suitable husband? Soon she would leave behind fast food and come to love the Pakistani foods of her heritage, learning to cook them with wholesome ingredients and eat them in moderation. FATTY FATTY BOOM BOOM is a searingly honest portrait of a woman grappling with a body that gets the job done but refuses to meet the expectations of others.
