Introducing young readers to the complicated motivations involved in overeating, this book illustrates the mental dilemmas and preoccupations of an overeater and promotes open discussion between parents and their sons and daughters. As it illustrates the interior life of Jerry, this charming story explains that the food monster (Jerry's desire to eat) has grown so powerful that it is obscuring many of his other motivations, or FITS (Friends Inside the Self). By rediscovering his FITS— those that sing, run, listen to music, and stargaze— Jerry realizes the impact that food is having on his life and begins to regain control of his appetites and emotions.
After realizing that his life is not how it used to be, Jerry takes a good long look inside of himself and finds that his true needs, wants, and desires are being overwhelmed by his consumption of food.
