'In Joyful Eating, Tansy does more than debunk why diets don’t work; she shines a light on the countless beliefs that starve people of happiness and contentment with their bodies, and themselves. She has packed Joyful Eating with practical tools to help people release their sabotaging thoughts, enabling them to eat more intuitively and find joy in the moment.'
— Michelle Stanton, author of The Timeless World and Selling in the Zone.
'While I was reading Tansy’s book, I felt at ease. It was as if we had known each other for years, and she was a trusted friend giving guidance and support on issues that I’d struggled with for years. After living with food addiction for 10 years and decades of abusing food and my body, reading Joyful Eating put a lot of things into perspective and made sense.
Learning that somehow it is possible to enjoy food again instead of using it as a reward or punishment system will be life-changing for those who read this book and take on board the stories and experiences shared. Food is used for so many reasons - boredom, stress, emotional and habit. I am slowly learning that I can eat joyfully and truly make peace with what I eat and my beautiful body.
Thank you, Tansy, for making your book very easy to read and absorb the information. The exercises are practical and make it easy to bring these strategies into our everyday life.'

'Tansy has studied the nutrition and then gone beyond it to the bigger picture.
The common physical, mental, emotional and spiritual blocks that can play out in unhelpful eating patterns are brought out in the open, and you are encouraged to discover your own. Don’t worry you are not left hanging there; Joyful Eating provides plenty of techniques, templates and examples to help you start to dissolve your blocks so you can start eating in a more helpful and relaxed way.
Joyful Eating provides a timely relief from all the contradictory and sensationalised information on diet and nutrition. If you're ready to leave dieting and restrictive lifestyle changes in the past, Joyful Eating is for you.'

'In an engaging and sensitive way, Tansy continually invites the reader to explore their belief that they are not perfect as they are.
As an ultramarathon runner with no eating concerns, I found the book incredibly helpful in allowing me to let go of expectations and to transition from a goal-setting runner to a runner who feels into the moment and runs for joy.
I believe that in Joyful Eating, Tansy shares wisdom and presents extensive research and examples that are of benefit to everyone, whether they have a history of dieting, are striving for good health or any life goals.'
— Barry McBride, Ultramarathon runner
