Reading this book can only help you.
Jason is firmly grounded in reality, and does tell it like it is. Body Beliefs explores the body issues that most women seem to have. It dusts them off, picks them up, and holds them up to the light. Since my typical approach to these issues has been squishing them down in the mental equivalent of a Space Bag and packing them away in the dark, I was definitely intrigued.
As it turns out, being able to look honestly at your issues is the best way to address them and move forward. This book gives you sound advice and tools to help you deal with weight loss with confidence, from a positive place and a more healthful perspective.
I'd recommend this book to anyone. It was a quick and no-nonsense read with lots of "A-ha!" moments. I learned a lot about myself and recognized that silly stuff in my head and weird self-sabotaging behaviors were actually holding me back in ways I'd never even considered before.
📚This is not a book to fly through. I've had it for over a month, and I really recommend digesting it slowly and being fully transparent with yourself. 📚What do I know about body image issues and disordered eating? I first became aware I "needed" to change my body around age 10 when I was told by a classmate only boys should be over 100lbs. I've starved myself to the point of blacking out, I've binged myself to the point of throwing up to make more room for food. I've prioritized taste over quality, food over relationships, and cardio over living. This is the abridged version, but I want to emphasize that I do have experience here, and, while I've gotten significantly healthier physically with my foray with paleo, it wasn't until I discovered Jason Seib and this book that I can say I'm finally breaking the mental barriers. Please, PLEASE buy this book (link in profile) if you can relate at all. I am a registered nurse as well as a health coach, and I just cannot emphasize the significance of mindfulness and emotional well-being and their role in overall health.
The book is full of extremely helpful scenarios and so many things that I want to share with every woman I know. It boils down to the concept that "you need to be able to eat right and exercise properly in the same way that you take a shower and you brush your teeth." We just do these things--there's no emotion involved. Jason doesn't just make these simple but powerful statements and expect you to be able to just go for it. He explains why he thinks that major lifestyle changes are so difficult to make and maintain and offers practical advice on how to implement change.
I love that he reminds us that "nothing about the pursuit of health and fat loss should ever be viewed as a temporary fix" and that we should "live the way we want to look and feel". We deserve all that and more.
