Anti-Diet: Reclaim Your Time, Money, Well-Being, and Happiness Through Intuitive Eating

We rated this book:


This book flies in the face of everything that our diet culture says is true. The evidence is compelling, based on extensive and thorough research, and debunks so many myths you’ve heard so often. The author speaks of Diet Culture (which has morphed into, and now includes, Wellness Culture– the same thing by a different name) as the Life Thief. She shows how the obsessive pursuit of an impossible ideal – yes impossible, as the author soundly proves – steals our money, our time, our focus, our health, and our enjoyment in living in so many ways — indeed, stealing our lives. Not to mention the fact that this culture is based on racist, colonialist, and oppressive assumptions such that those who care about social justice and human rights should take note and leap to reject it. It’s depressing but will make you furious too, which is a great first step to rejecting it. Finally, the book begins by offering ways to continue doing so, by repairing your relationship with food and with your body, and offering yourself love and compassion, so you can reclaim your life and the happiness everyone deserves in the body they have right now.
