Alexis Conason, Psy.D., is the author of The Diet-Free Revolution: 10 Steps to Free Yourself from the Diet Cycle with Mindful Eating and Radical Self-Acceptance (published in 2021 by North Atlantic Books and distributed by Penguin Random House). Forward Reviews called the book “packed with keen psychological and scientific insights” and Christy Harrison, author of Anti-Diet, said “Alexis Conason offers a truly weight inclusive approach to mindful eating that will help you develop self-compassion, practice self-care, and find pleasure in food and your body.”
Dr. Conason wrote The Diet-Free Revolution at the request of her clients, who wanted to share what they had learned from her with others. Starting with an evidence-based explanation of why diets don’t work and are harmful, The Diet-Free Revolution walks the reader through 10 steps to learn what they can do instead to create a compassionate relationship with their body, tune into their body’s signals, and free up mental energy from food and body preoccupation so they can live their life and focus on the things that really matter.
In addition to her book, Dr. Conason’s essays on diet culture have been published in Glamour Magazine, Elle Magazine, Scary Mommy, and Darling Magazine.
