The Diet-Free Revolution
A 10-step approach to ditching diet culture, healing your relationship with food, and cultivating compassion for your body.
Diets don’t work–and it’s not your fault. As a culture, we’re told (and tell ourselves) that if we just lose the weight–try a little harder, have a little more willpower, or deprive ourselves for a little bit longer–we’ll be happier, healthier, and more confident. But it’s not true.
The Diet-Free Revolution debunks the myths we’ve been sold about food, nutrition, health, and weight loss, and offers an antidote to the pain and harmful health consequences that result from yo-yo diets, untenable food regimens, and quick fixes. Clinical psychologist and eating disorder specialist Dr. Alexis Conason helps us discover what really nourishes us, while teaching how we can listen to and care for our bodies. Her 10-step program will help you:
• Challenge your assumptions about weight and health
• Understand the ways that our emotions can impact how and why we eat
• Embrace your “yum” and tune into taste with mindful eating
• Trust your body to be your guide and find real fullness
