For people struggling with food, eating, and body image issues, conventional self-help books might not always hit the right note. This irreverent, unconventional, seriously un-serious book - based on the author's 20 years of teaching and coaching, as well as the current science of change psychology - tackles the concept of disordered eating from a more informal, real-life angle. Part self-exploration guide, part nutrition advice, part workbook, part manifesto, part instruction manual for life, this book covers: * the author's own experience with disordered eating * how food and eating issues are ways to solve problems and deal with pain * how you're not as broken as you think you are * how to soothe painful emotions * how to get "un-stuck" and moving in a new direction * how to eat to nourish your brain and help yourself feel better Simply written, easy to understand, full of humor and - yes - plenty of curse words, this book is a quick but high-impact read that might just change your life.
