No one wants their daughter to grow up with an eating or body image disorder. However, if you're a mother battling these issues yourself, you may worry about passing them on to your child. There is a way you can end your war with food and self-esteem—and save your daughter as well.
In Within, registered dietitian Karen Diaz shares her two-part approach to confronting eating and body image disorders. Her lessons begin with focusing on changes within yourself before shifting to transforming your home and family. Included are exercises to let go of emotions, shed the diet culture, become self-full, reenvision mealtime, keep food neutral, assess the bigger picture, and discuss bodies with your children.
This book is not a diet, but rather the means to quiet the criticism and noise impacting your ability to flourish—and your family's ability to thrive.
