If you are like most women, you have spent time dieting and trying to change yourself so that you fit into a mold—and a body—that is deemed socially acceptable. Yet it is dieting that is the problem: it disconnects you from your body’s wisdom and holds you back from living life to the fullest. The more time you spend trying to “fix” yourself, the less time you have for the things that really matter.

What presents as a problem about food is, in reality, much deeper and more complex. In Unapologetic Eating: Make Peace with Food & Transform Your Life, registered dietitian and certified intuitive eating counselor Alissa Rumsey helps you explore your history with food and your body and question societal expectations to get to the bottom of the complexity and find a clear path forward—forever free from diets!

In this book, Rumsey walks you through the process of reconnecting with your body using your relationship to food as the entry point—going from trying to “fix” or change yourself to unapologetic eating and finally to unapologetic living. She’s broken down this process into four segments: fixing, allowing, feeling, and growing, and she provides actionable tools you can use to confidently nourish yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally. You’ll learn how to make peace with food, improve your body image, trust your intuition, and reclaim the space to eat and live unapologetically. Say goodbye to the constraints of dieting and hello to the freedom and empowerment to live your most fulfilling life.
