Summer Reading Recommendations!





If you're anything like me, you find yourself enjoying reading even more when the weather heats up. Perhaps you need a good book to take on vacation or to the local beach or pool. I also just find myself finding more time for leisure activities/hobbies such as reading when the days seem much longer and the sun sets later. So here is a round-up (in no particular order) of some enjoyable reads related to all things Intuitive Eating, food freedom, body image, etc. Hoping you find a new good find from this list!


  • You Just Need to Lose Weight”: And 19 Other Myths About Fat People by Aubrey Gordon

  • Fat Talk: Parenting in the Age of Diet Culture by Virginia Sole-Smith

  • Reclaiming Body Trust: A Path to Healing & Liberation by Dana Sturtevant and Hilary Kinavey

  • Decolonizing Wellness: A QTBIPOC-Centered Guide to Escape the Diet Trap, Heal Your Self-Image, and Achieve Body Liberation by Dalia Kinsey

  • The Body Liberation Project: How Understanding Racism and Diet Culture Helps Cultivate Joy and Build Collective Freedom by Chrissy King

  • The Wellness Trap: Break Free from Diet Culture, Disinformation, and Dubious Diagnoses, and Find Your True Well-Being by Christy Harrison
