Summary

A 10-step approach to ditch diet culture, heal your relationship with food, and learn to love your body from clinical psychologist Alexis Conason.

Diets don't work - and it's not your fault. As a culture, we're told (and tell ourselves) that if we just lost the weight - tried a little harder, had a little more willpower, or deprived ourselves for a little bit longer - we'd be happier, healthier, and more desirable. But it's just 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 suffering caused by yo-yo diets, untenable food regimens, and quick fixes. Clinical psychologist and eating-disorder specialist Alexis Conason shows that finding health, happiness, and real nourishment is about more than changing what, how, or when we eat: It's about radically shifting our relationship with food by healing our relationship to ourselves. She helps us discover what really nourishes us, while teaching us how we can listen to and love our bodies. Enriched with case studies, meditations, stories, lessons, and activities, her 10-step program will help you:

  • Challenge your assumptions about weight and health
  • Find fullness and manage emotional eating
  • Embrace your "yum" and tune into taste with mindful eating
  • Trust your body to be your guide

Reframing dieting and diet "failure" as pervasive aspects of our culture - not individual failures - The Diet-Free Revolution offers an empowering road map to healing, self-acceptance, and radical new ways of relating to and loving our bodies.
