If you struggle with any form of disordered eating, obsessive/binge eating, feeling trapped by diet culture, THIS book is for you! I’ve had so many amazing moments since reading this book Just Eat It Laura Thomas Phd and by amazing moments I mean life changing tips to put into practice. That’s one of my favourite things about this book is the plethora of activities for you to sit down and work through. It’s as much valuable reading as valuable LEARNING. The biggest reason most of us quit or fail is simply because we don’t have enough valuable tools to help us change. Change is hard, especially when you’ve been doing something for so long (hello dieting and being exposed to diet culture!)
Laura is going to empower you to be in control of your eating (the major thing that dieting takes away from us). Everything I’ve taken away from this book is simple for all of us to conceptualise and help to undo years and years of dieting behaviour. I couldn’t recommend this book more ferociously.
“This isn’t just a book. It’s part of a movement to give women power and control over our bodies. To free us from restrictive dieting, disordered eating and punishing exercise. To reject the guilt and anxiety associated with eating and, ultimately, to help us feel good about ourselves. This anti-diet guide from Registered Nutritionist Laura Thomas PhD can help you sort out your attitude to food and ditch punishing exercise routines. As a qualified practitioner of Intuitive Eating – a method that helps followers tune in to innate hunger and fullness cues – Thomas gives you the freedom to enjoy food on your own terms. There are no rules: only simple, practical tools and exercises including mindfulness techniques to help you recognise physiological and emotional hunger, sample conversations with friends and colleagues, and magazine and blog critiques that call out diet culture. So, have you ever been on a diet? Compared the size of your waistline to someone else’s? Felt guilt about the serious crime of . . . eating a doughnut? You’re not alone. Just Eat It gives you everything you need to develop a more trusting, healthy relationship with food and your body.”
