Download and read online Body Respect in PDF and EPUB Mainstream health science has let you down. Weight loss is not the key to health, diet and exercise are not effective weight-loss strategies and fatness is not a death sentence. You’ve heard it before: there’s a global health crisis, and, unless we make some changes, we’re in trouble. That much is true—but the epidemic is NOT obesity. The real crisis lies in the toxic stigma placed on certain bodies and the impact of living with inequality—not the numbers on a scale. In a mad dash to shrink our bodies, many of us get so caught up in searching for the perfect diet, exercise program, or surgical technique that we lose sight of our original goal: improved health and well-being. Popular methods for weight loss don’t get us there and lead many people to feel like failures when they can’t match unattainable body standards. It’s time for a cease-fire in the war against obesity. Dr. Linda Bacon and Dr. Lucy Aphramor’s Body Respect debunks common myths about weight, including the misconceptions that BMI can accurately measure health, that fatness necessarily leads to disease, and that dieting will improve health. They also help make sense of how poverty and oppression—such as racism, homophobia, and classism—affect life opportunity, self-worth, and even influence metabolism. Body insecurity is rampant, and it doesn’t have to be. It’s time to overcome our culture’s shame and distress about weight, to get real about inequalities and health, and to show every body respect.

At twenty-nine, Kelsey Miller had done it all: crash diets, healthy diets, and nutritionist-prescribed "eating plans," which are diets that you pay more money for. She'd been fighting her un-thin body since early childhood, and after a lifetime of failure, finally hit bottom. No diet could transform her body or her life.

This is a memoir for anyone who's dealt with a distorted body image, food issues, or a dysfunctional family. It's for the late-bloomers and the not-yet-bloomed. It's for everyone who's tried and failed and felt like a big, fat loser. So, basically, everyone.
Download and read online How to Have Your Cake and Your Skinny Jeans Too in PDF and EPUB YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN STOP BINGE EATING (OR FEELING OUT OF CONTROL WITH FOOD) AND BE THIN! You are about to finally uncover the single reason why you've been experiencing such an uphill battle with food and your weight. And far more importantly... I am going to teach you the skills you need to win the food fight once and for all--without dieting. If you're looking for a real, proven, step-by-step solution to stop overeating and binge eating for good--so you can finally get thin and get on with your amazing life--then this book is for you. Is food your best friend--and your worst enemy? Are you stuck in a relentless tug-of-war between wanting (desperately) to lose weight, and the out-of-control urge to eat? Does your firm morning resolve to "be good" with food consistently crumble into a night of takeout on the couch, watching TV with Ben & Jerry? Do you love food, but at the same time, part of you hates it with a passion, and would be perfectly happy if you never ate again--if it just meant you could finally be thin? Let me come right out and say it. It's not you! There are clear-cut, solvable reasons why your eating currently feels frustrating and at times painfully out of control. You've simply been trying to solve the problem (excess weight and overeating) with a solution (dieting and exercise) that does nothing to resolve the real reasons you feel so out of control with food. The problem is not your lack of nutritional knowledge. Knowing how many calories (or carbs!) are in a thick, fudgy brownie does absolutely nothing to equip you with the skills to stop binge eating it after a long, hard day at work. Are you going to scream if another weight loss book tells you to "take a bath" instead of binge eating? Overeating and binge eating are learned behavioral patterns that can be eradicated once you learn a few simple--actionable--psychological skills. And NOT the type of "fluff psychology" you find in most emotional eating books that advise you to "take a walk," "read a book," or "take a warm bath" when you feel the urge to overeat. Really? That advice is absolutely useless. (And maddening!) As if when you're in that pre-binge frenzy, parked outside the mini-mart tearing into a bag of chips and a box of donuts, you're going to hear that advice and say, "Wow, why didn't I think of that? I'll put down these salty, grease glistening chips and thick, chocolate frosted donuts and head home to read Pride and Prejudice." Not so much. The solution to binge eating and overeating is found in step-by-step, research based, learn-able skills that prevent and eliminate overeating on the spot. The skills (you'll be happy to know) do not include deprivation or willpower. Since willpower and deprivation don't actually work. I mean, if they did work to yield lasting weight loss we wouldn't be having this conversation right now. Right? Find out exactly why your best weight loss efforts have failed in the past--and more importantly, exactly what you can do to change it. Today. Learn how to eliminate the single behavior that 70 years of scientific research proves causes overeating, binge eating, and feeling out of control with food. Uncover the secret to being able to keep any food in your house--without it calling your name. Discover the two keys that make it a cinch to stop eating any food when you've had enough (even chocolate cake or a cheeseburger!). How to Have Your Cake and Your Skinny Jeans Too is Josie at her best--sharing her remarkable insights, her warm, disarming signature wit, and her research-based Hunger Directed Eating techniques that result in quick and lasting change. This is the first book in a groundbreaking series. Join the women and men around the world who are finally enjoying peace and ease with food.
Download and read online Eating Mindfully in PDF and EPUB What would it be like to really savor your food? Instead of grabbing a quick snack on your way out the door or eating just to calm down at the end of a stressful day, isn’t it about time you let yourself truly appreciate a satisfying, nourishing meal? In our modern society, weight concerns, obesity rates, and obsession with appearance have changed the way we look at food—and not necessarily for the better. If you have ever snacked when you weren’t hungry, have used guilt as a guide for your eating habits, or have cut calories even when you felt hungry, you have experienced “mindless” eating firsthand. This mindless approach to food is dangerous, and can have serious health and emotional consequences. But if you’ve been mindlessly eating all your life, it can be difficult to make a change. When it comes down to it, you must take a whole new approach to eating—but where do you begin? Practicing mindful eating habits may be just the thing to make that important change. In fact, it might just be the answer you’ve been searching for all these years. The breakthrough approaches in Eating Mindfully, by Susan Albers, use mindfulness-based psychological practices to take charge of cravings so they can eat when they are hungry and stop when they feel full. Ten years after the release of the first edition, this book continues to help thousands of readers change the way they approach mealtime. So what’s changed? For starters, there is a new section that focuses on the “occasional mindless eater.” This second edition emphasizes that mindful eating isn’t only for those on a diet or for those who have severely problematic eating habits—it’s for everyone. In addition, this new edition features over 50 new tips for eating mindfully. Inside, you will learn how to be more aware of what you eat, get to know your fullness and hunger cues, and how to savor and appreciate every bite. You will also learn how mindlessness corrupts the way you eat, and how it can manifest in a number of different eating problems. No matter where you are in your journey toward mindful eating, this book will be an invaluable resource, and you will gain insight into how mindfulness can provide you with the skills needed to control the way you eat—leading to a healthier, happier life.
