I chose this book because I strongly believe in the never say diet again mantra It delivered that plus so much We throw around terms like nurturing and self love often but do we really know what these mean in a practical sense of day to day steps Rebecca Scritchfield a registered dietician breaks down her approach into manageable steps She says to start with the uestion What is the least I can doOne of her precepts that I like the most is that food is nourishment not a moral choice of good or bad She talks about the downside of the clean eating movement that anything not clean must be dirty or shameful I appreciated this insight However I'm uncomfortable with a dietician giving such detailed psychological advice Many of her suggestions are based on positive psychology which I struggle with and uestion especially since reading Bright Sided How The Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America by Barbara Ehrenreich But perhaps that's just me Scritchfield talks about resilience as if it were just as simple as just bounce back already It's not that simple and I found that approach bordering on insensitive and hurtfulAt the point she says your mindset determines your authentic life I wondered if I'd actually finish the book It's a cliche that's been said by so many authors and speakers over the last decade And then things started to turn around She moves back into eating caring for yourself and connecting with others in a way I could relate to I did enjoy Rebecca's friendly tone and funny insights like You can't hate yourself healthy In discussing family dinners together and studies about their benefits she asks if it was the magical roasted vegetables that created those benefits Of course notOn the other hand the continued references to Frozen got old As my formerly Elsa obsessed granddaughter recently said That movie's over nowI would have preferred stories of Rebecca's personal journey in addition to the client vignettes When she starts to tell some of her story I found myself wishing for detail and emotion But alas this is an instructional book not a memoir If you're looking for healthy living inspiration that's body positive this is a great resource It's full of actionable steps you can put in place for little to no financial investment Instead you're investing in yourself and that's the best return of all Thanks to the author NetGalley and Workman Publishing Company for an advance digital copy in exchange for an honest review
