"Alissa Rumsey’s Unapologetic Eating is more than an exposé of the harmful shapeshifter that is diet culture. It is a practical tool to unlearn and ultimately heal from the faulty programming that causes us pain and confusion and a hands-on guide to reclaiming body trust and becoming truly embodied. The book’s sections touch on the myriad facets of body image and our relationship with food and then the reflection questions support readers to expose and understand their own unique thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors so that they can be examined, reframed, and reimagined to align with their true values."
