Each chapter offers action steps and loving exercises you can take to heal or help someone heal. My favorite action to take is starting a self-love journal. For most of my life I've used writing to help me with issues and heal from trauma. Starting a journal can feel daunting so I recommend you personalize your journal and make it fun.
While I don't personally have an eating disorder, this book is a great reminder to love my own body after the many years I spent degrading myself in a vain attempt to look as beautiful as an airbrushed model.
I recommend reading this book if :
-You are dealing with an eating disorder.
-You have a loved one, or even a co-worker, who is dealing with an eating disorder.
-You have a poor body image.
-You want to learn more about eating disorders.
However, this book is so much more. The Self Love Diet effectively drives home the importance of accepting and loving ourselves so that we can have fuller and richer lives. Even if you think you already do, this book may surprise you and take you to another level. The writing style is wonderful and makes for a pleasurable read. It is packed with real life examples, inspirational quotes, and useful tools and action steps to try out. I read it through once and now find it a great bedside book to re-read portions of each day for inspiration.
