DIETING DOESN’T WORK

Not long term. In fact, our bodies are hardwired against it. But each time our diets fail, instead of considering that maybe our ridiculously low-carb diet is the problem, we wonder what’s wrong with us. Why can’t we stick to our simple plan of grapefruit and tuna fish??? Why are we so hungry? What is wrong with us??? We berate ourselves for being lazy and weak, double down on our belief that losing weight is the key to our everlasting happiness, and resolve to do better tomorrow. But it’s time we called a spade a spade: Constantly trying to eat the smallest amount possible is a miserable way to live, and it isn’t even working. So fuck eating like that. 

In The F*ck It Diet, Caroline Dooner tackles the inherent flaws of dieting and diet culture, and offers readers a counterintuitively simple path to healing their physical, emotional, and mental relationship with food. What’s the secret anti-diet? Eat. Whatever you want. Honor your appetite and listen to your hunger. Trust that your body knows what it is doing. Oh, and don’t forget to rest, breathe, and be kind to yourself while you’re at it.  Once you get yourself out of survival mode, it will become easier and easier to eat what your body really needs—a healthier relationship with food ultimately leads to a healthier you.

An ex-yo-yo dieter herself, Dooner knows how terrifying it can be to break free of the vicious cycle, but with her signature sharp humor and compassion, she shows readers that a sustainable, easy relationship with food is possible.

Irreverent and empowering, The F*ck It Diet is call to arms for anyone who feels guilt or pain over food, weight, or their body. It’s time to give up the shame and start thriving. Welcome to the F*ck It Diet. Let’s Eat.

I cried…I can’t stop crying. I actually cancelled my preorder because I didn’t want another diet book. Then I kept seeing on IG how funny and life changing the book was for many people so I ordered it again. I was hesitant…I wanted to just feel free around food. Was this book going to be the answer or just another diet? Then I started reading…then I started crying. I was overwhelmed with emotion and all I could do was cry. I related to everything in this book especially the 40 packs of gum a day the Minnesota…

Not sure what to think…… I saw myself in some of the comments about food and dieting in the beginning but I just can’t wrap my head around the program. If you were thin and your weight only bounced around about 20 pounds I could see giving this a try but why would anyone want to gain a bunch of weight? The program encourages you to eat a lot, way more then you were eating before, eat when you are not hungry (everyday at least once) and to binge. You are encouraged to gain weight and to take up space and get used to…

This book is gold and the world needs to know! As an Non-Diet Registered Dietitian, I found this book to be extremely scientifically sound. Caroline found the perfect balance of presenting evidence based information and explaining tough concepts in a down to earth manner. This is a must read for anyone struggling with food and body!
