Nourish: How to Heal Your Relationship with Food, Body, and Self
“Food is Love (But Don’t Eat Too Much!)” Eat less. Eat clean. Avoid these foods. Eating is a life-giving pleasure, but confusing messages from the diet and nutrition industries may leave you wondering what to eat. Do you find yourself: Eating food that doesn’t nourish or energize you? Munching mindlessly or emotionally? Flipping between feeling “good” and “bad” about your eating? Thinking about food and your body more than you’d like? Discover how to trust your body, and to eat with love and common sense. Learn how to: eat without deprivation or overeating; accept your body and trust its wisdom; deal with setbacks, destructive thoughts, and self-defeating attitudes; create healthy habits to nurture yourself; and ditch dieting so you free yourself to live a life you love. Nourish will guide you to transform your eating from self-control to self-love, using a 10-step healing process. In this book, Heidi Schauster, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S, founder of Nourishing Words Nutrition Therapy, shares 20 years of wisdom from her Boston-area practice in disordered and emotional eating.
