Review quote

This book reminds people of the importance of learning to be kind and supportive to themselves and to appreciate themselves for who they are. --Dr. Kristin Neff, PhD, bestselling author of Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself "Mary reminds us that one of the kindest acts of self-care involves tuning out the pressures of the outside world and learning to appreciate ourselves for who we truly are." --Shannon Kaiser author of The Self-Love Experiment and Joy Seeker "This workbook is filled with actionable advice that will actually help you put self-love into practice (the most important part!). This book will help you work through the beliefs and expectations that have kept you stuck, and help you realize that you are wonderful exactly as you are." --Caroline Dooner, author of The F*ck It Diet "Through a lens of Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size, Mary has written a supportive, encouraging book to help you fight diet culture and come to a place of gratitude for the mere existence of your body. By relating to her personal story, Mary will help you see that you're not alone in your struggles with food and your body and will give you the courage to make the changes you need to live a trusting, sensual, and meaningful life. I highly recommend this beautiful, compassionate book for all who need a guidebook toward self-appreciation and self-love." --Elyse Resch, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S, nutrition therapist and author of The Intuitive Eating Workbook for Teens and The Intuitive Eating Journal--Principles for Nourishing a Healthy Relationship with Food; Co-author of Intuitive Eating and The Intuitive Eating Workbook "For topics so nuanced, despicably monetized, and often traumatizing, Mary tackles body image, diet culture, and self acceptance masterfully. She seamlessly weaves together data, anecdotes, and poignant questions to paint a picture of what self-love could look like in the real, everyday version of our lives if we're brave enough to reach out and take it." --Zoe Marshall, TV writer and producer "Mary has written a game changing book that will change the lives of so many women! She bravely tackles the topic of radical self love and how that can and will impact any woman with body issues (all of us!) but especially women struggling with eating disorders. This book gives people permission to embrace their bodies and love themselves for who they truly are." --Regena Thomashauer, author of Pussy: A Reclamation "In this relatable and practical workbook, Mary helps move people from disempowering self-criticism to renewed self-love." --Kara Loewentheil, J.D., M.C.C., host of the UnF*ck Your Brain podcast
"Mary is a pioneer in the self love movement and really does gets it. This book is an absolute must read for any woman who wants to heal her relationship with food and her body, and connect with her true power." -- Mel Wells, Bestselling Author of The Goddess Revolution, Speaker and Eating Psychology Coach.
