This is not a diet book - there are no menu plans or fitness routines here! Body Kindness addresses overall health (with a focus on both food and movement throughout) in four sections: What you do: the choices you make about food and nutrition, including mindful eating and eating with joy how you feel: your emotions, and how to change the voice in your head who you are: identifying your values and choices where you belong: finding your community each section includes inspiration as well as fun, scientifically based activities and exercises that focus on incremental, sustainable change. The exercises lead the emotions to "spiral up," giving the reader insight and j rewards for positive change. The author makes a revolutionary yet scientifically proven declaration: You can lose weight only if you stop having weight loss as your goal. When you make choices about your health that are in line with your values, the result is a healthier body that you love. The goal of the book: to resolve the conflict where health and happiness diverge and help reconnect the two.
