You didn't fail your diet. Your diet failed YOU. In a society where thinness is a measure of worthiness, it's no wonder the multibillion-dollar weight-loss industry continues to flourish while its loyal, repeat customers continue to suffer in shame. After all, we've been led to believe that it's our fault we can't succeed at the latest diet, control our eating, or mold our bodies to the "correct" size and shape. The Emotional Eating, Chronic Dieting, Binge Eating & Body Image Workbook seeks to flip that narrative on its head. Written by three leading experts in the fields of disordered eating, mental health, and trauma-informed care, this book will become your go-to guide for learning how to reject diet culture, heal your relationship with food, and feel at home in your body. No "wellness plan" needed In these pages, you'll find a wealth of information, strategies, and stories to help you: - Trust your body to know what it needs to feel comfortable and satiated - Break free from the rigidity of dieting and the chaos of binge eating - Unlearn messages about when and what you're "supposed" to eat - Understand the emotional connection that everyone-yes, everyone-has with food - Let go of internalized weight stigma and body shame - Dispel myths about weight, health, and fitness - Recognize diets disguised as wellness or health plans.
