From the time we are born, we are inundated with messages about our bodies – what we should eat, how we should look, and how we should move to achieve certain standards.

The pressure to conform is higher for those who don’t fit into what society values: youth, thinness, whiteness, fitness, health, and able-bodiedness.

But what if you could let go of the chronic shame, judgment, and self-loathing you hold about food and your body? What if you no longer needed the latest diet, cleanse, or wellness plan to feel better about yourself? What if you could free yourself of all these burdens?

These are the answers you will find inside Unburdened Eating. Written through the lens of Internal Family Systems (IFS), this book offers a sustainable path to heal your relationships with food and your body. Based on Dr. Jeanne Catanzaro’s 25+ years working with trauma and eating issues, and informed by the insights of leading voices in the growing field of body liberation, this book will allow you to:

  • Heal the critical and diet-minded parts of yourself
  • Stop trying to fix parts of yourself and your body that are “unacceptable” or “less desirable”
  • Trust yourself to connect to your body with compassion and care
  • Become more resistant to societal messages about what it means to be healthy and attractive

It is possible to accept yourself as you are and relax into a more compassionate, trusting relationship with food and your body. And that healing resource lies within you.
