Overview

Get off the diet roller coaster and embark on a life-affirming journey towards a positive and sustainable relationship with food and your body.

In Why Did I Just Eat That? Registered Dietitian, Certified Eating Disorders Specialist, and food therapist Lisa D. Ellis offers nutritional and therapeutic support in this comprehensive guide to healthy eating. She promotes an all-foods-fit model and mindfulness to explain the connection between human emotions, habits, and physical satisfaction. She rejects the toxic constraints of diet culture and instead encourages self-acceptance, eating intuitively, and fundamentally redefining our relationship with food.

Why Did I Just Eat That? begins with removing the blame and shame associated with food by sharing a highly readable overview of how early human survival strategies influence our eating issues today. A self-administered quiz follows, designed to identify the specific types of eating behaviors. Finally, after real case studies and solutions are discussed, Why Did I Just Eat That? provides practical and achievable healing steps tailored to address the needs of each respective type of eater.

The science-backed wisdom, exercises, and activities will empower anyone struggling with food to let go of the idea of perfection and define their relationship with food on their own terms, paving the way for deeper self-discovery and a healthier way of living.
