<b>Reclaim your time, money, health, and happiness from our toxic diet culture with groundbreaking strategies from a registered dietitian, journalist, and host of the "Food Psych" podcast.<br /></b><b><br /></b>68 percent of Americans have dieted at some point in their lives. But upwards of 90% of people who intentionally lose weight gain it back within five years. And as many as 66% of people who embark on weight-loss efforts end up gaining more weight than they lost. If dieting is so clearly ineffective, why are we so obsessed with it?<br />The culprit is diet culture, a system of beliefs that equates thinness to health and moral virtue, promotes weight loss as a means of attaining higher status, and demonizes certain ways of eating while elevating others. It's sexist, racist, and classist, yet this way of thinking about food and bodies is so embedded in the fabric of our society that it can be hard to recognize. It masquerades as health, wellness, and fitness, and for some, it is all-consuming. <br />In <i>Anti-Diet</i>, Christy Harrison takes on diet culture and the multi-billion-dollar industries that profit from it, exposing all the ways it robs people of their time, money, health, and happiness. It will turn what you think you know about health and wellness upside down, as Harrison explores the history of diet culture, how it's infiltrated the health and wellness world, how to recognize it in all its sneaky forms, and how letting go of efforts to lose weight or eat "perfectly" actually helps to <i>improve</i> people's health -- no matter their size. Drawing on scientific research, personal experience, and stories from patients and colleagues, <i>Anti-Diet</i> provides a radical alternative to diet culture, and helps readers reclaim their bodies, minds, and lives so they can focus on the things that truly matter.

<p><strong>鈥?lt;em>The F*ck It Diet </em>is not only hilarious, it is scientifically and medically sound.

In fact, our bodies are hardwired against it. But each time our diets fail, instead of considering that maybe our ridiculously low-carb diet is the problem, we wonder what鈥檚 wrong with us. Why can鈥檛 we stick to our simple plan of grapefruit and tuna fish??? Why are we so <em>hungry? </em>What is wrong with us??? We berate ourselves for being lazy and weak, double down on our belief that losing weight is the key to our everlasting happiness, and resolve to do better tomorrow. But it鈥檚 time we called a spade a spade: Constantly trying to eat the smallest amount possible is a miserable way to live, and it isn鈥檛 even working<em>. </em>So fuck eating like that.聽 </p><p>In <em>The F*ck It Diet</em>, Caroline Dooner tackles the inherent flaws of dieting and diet culture, and offers readers a counterintuitively simple path to healing their physical, emotional, and mental relationship with food. What鈥檚 the secret anti-diet? Eat. Whatever you want. Honor your appetite and listen to<em> </em>your hunger. Trust that your body knows what it is doing. Oh, and don鈥檛 forget to rest, breathe, and be kind to yourself while you鈥檙e at it.聽 Once you get yourself out of survival mode, it will become easier and easier to eat what your body really needs鈥攁 healthier relationship with food ultimately leads to a healthier you. </p><p>An ex-yo-yo dieter herself, Dooner knows how terrifying it can be to break free of the vicious cycle, but with her signature sharp humor and compassion, she shows readers that a sustainable, easy relationship with food is possible. </p><p>Irreverent and empowering, <em>The F*ck It Diet </em>is call to arms for anyone who feels guilt or pain over food, weight, or their body. It鈥檚 time to give up the shame and start thriving. Welcome to the F*ck It Diet. Let鈥檚 Eat. </p><p>聽</p>

<b><b>A proven plan to break free from your unhealthy relationship with Sugar - and reclaim your health and your life for good.</b></b><br /><br />The solution to your food and weight problems isn't willpower or the next fad diet - it's breaking up with Sugar. Molly Carmel, an eating disorder therapist with a thriving clinic in New York City, discovered the devastating role Sugar played in her own 20-year struggle with disordered eating. After reaching a peak weight of 325 pounds and trying every diet imaginable, Molly was finally able to dramatically transform her life--and find her happy weight-by breaking up with Sugar. Molly has since helped thousands of people overcome compulsive overeating, repetitive dieting, and Sugar addiction to reinvent their lives. Here, she shares her empowering 66-day blueprint for kicking Sugar to the curb - once and for all.<br /><br />Molly explains how Sugar is not only bad for your health, it's also a substance with highly addictive potential - one that creates physical, neurological, and hormonal changes that often make moderation impossible. This is the first book to address the emotional, spiritual, chemical, and physical components of this toxic relationship and help guide you through the steps to create a new and lasting relationship with food...and with yourself.<br /><br />Breaking Up with Sugar includes step-by-step meal plans to take the guesswork out of going Sugar-free, as well as seven key self-affirming vows you can rely on to help end the overeating and dieting cycle and release unhealthy weight. With empathy, honesty, and humor as your trusted coach and friend, Molly gives you essential tools to navigate this new way of eating when life gets "life-y" or times get tough. Her sustainable roadmap will put you on the path to true freedom.

Brain over Binge provides both a gripping personal account and an informative scientific perspective on bulimia and binge eating disorder. The author, Kathryn Hansen, candidly shares her experience as a bulimic and her alternative approach to recovery. Brain over Binge is different than other eating disorder books which typically present binge eating and purging as symptoms of complex emotional and psychological problems. Kathryn disputes this mainstream idea and explains why traditional eating disorder therapy failed her and fails many. She explains how she came to understand her bulimia in a new way 鈥?as a function of her brain, and how she used the power of her brain to recover 鈥?quickly and permanently. Kathryn also sheds new light on eating disorder topics such as low self-esteem, poor body image, and dieting. Brain over Binge is a brave book that will help many by delivering an informed and inspiring message of free will, self-reliance, and self-control.
