8 Classic Books That Will Help You Ditch Diets and Heal Your Relationship with Food & Your Body

Google can guide you to literally thousands of books, blogs, and articles about destructive diets, body image and eating disorder recovery. I’ve personally spent hundreds of hours reading related content and it seems the more I read the more is published (this is a good thing!)
