Joyful Eating: How to Break Free of Diets and Make Peace with Your Body
“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.”
— Michelle Stanton, author of The Timeless World and Selling in the Zone.
“You have not failed diets; diets have failed you.”
Are you discontent with your body? Ever blamed yourself for overeating? Through reading Joyful Eating, you will discover it’s not yourself that is to blame, but diets themselves.
Nutrition counsellor, Tansy Boggon, shares how aspiring for your perfect weight or optimal health keeps you trapped in a cycle of diet after diet, constantly searching for the next miracle answer to weight loss or enduring health.
Inside this book, you’ll discover a refreshing philosophy of self-acceptance. Like an understanding therapist, Tansy guides you through self-reflection activities, assisting you to:
Free yourself from yo-yo dieting and emotional eating
Feel comfortable and content in your own skin
Reconnect with and trust your body’s internal cues
Uncover who you are without fear of not being good enough
Find your way to nourish your body and mind, intuitively
It’s time to let go of the stress of dieting and reclaim a joyful relationship with your body and with food.
“Joyful Eating provides a timely relief from all the contradictory and sensationalised information on diet and nutrition.”
—Carla Evans, Nutritionist at Collectiv[e]lements.
