Diets don’t work over the long-term, but so many of us don’t know how to eat without a specific diet to follow. By exploring the many reasons dieting keeps us stuck—from misguided beliefs about health to social bonding to society’s perception of healthy as being thin—we can finally say no to restrictive diets and wellness culture and yes to eating based on your body and your needs.
In her new book Enjoy It All: Improve Your Health and Happiness with Intuitive Eating, Sarah Berneche delivers a step-by-step process for healing your relationship with food, your body image, and ultimately yourself. She teaches you that enjoying food and embracing the pursuit of pleasure can liberate you from diet culture for good while improving your health.
Enjoy It All expands upon the following key points:
All foods can fit into a healthy diet—there’s no need to restrict foods unless it’s for medical or religious reasons.
It’s important to choose habits and behaviors that come from a place of self-care vs. self-control.
Pleasure isn’t antithetical to health—it’s intrinsic to health.
Many factors compromise our relationship with pleasure and ultimately our health.
It is possible to be at peace with food and your natural body size by shifting your mindset and following the overarching principles of intuitive eating.
Enjoy It All also features an overview of nutrition basics; a troubleshooting guide; journaling and mantra exercises; a guide to food shopping, preparation, and consumption; and an array of delicious recipes for breakfasts, mains, vegetable sides, and snacks.
Take ownership and improve your health, happiness, and sense of well-being—all without rules or restriction!
