Publisher's Summary

A body-positive call to arms that's as inspirational as it is practical, from Instagram star Megan Jayne Crabbe.

For generations, women have been convinced that true happiness only comes when we hit that goal weight, shrink ourselves down, and change ourselves to fit a rigid and unrealistic beauty ideal. We've been taught to see our bodies as collections of problems that need to be fixed.

Instagram star Megan Jayne Crabbe is determined to spread the word that loving the body you have is the real path to happiness. An international body positive guru with fans in all corners of the world, Megan spent years battling eating disorders and weight fluctuations before she found her way to body positivity. She quit dieting, discovered a new kind of confidence, and replaced all those old feelings of body shame and self-recrimination with everyday joy. Free of the pressure to fit in a size 2, her life became more satisfying than ever before.

In her audiobook, Megan shares her own struggles with self-acceptance and her path to body positivity. With whip-smart wit and a bold attitude that lights up her Instagram feed, Megan champions a new worldview for all of us: It's time to stop dieting and get on with your life.

Amazing, uplifting, inspiring!

Excellent, excellent book. So many insights and fantastic information to counter the negative body image messages we're bombarded with every day. After listening to The F*ck It Diet by Caroline Dooner four times in a row (it's that good!) I wanted more, and that's when I found this one. Megan speaks for those of us who've struggled with our weight and body image, and she offers courage to step out of those shackles and reclaim our freedom. I really can't say enough good things about this awesome book!

So glad the author read the book herself - it just isn't the same when some paid actor dramatize it, especially when it's such a personal and sensitive subject. Megan Jayne Crabbe is perfect reading get book for the audiobook. Loved it, loved it, loved it!

Going to be listening to this one many, many times to really let the messages sink in. I am fine exactly as I am! Thank you, Megan - you rock!!

beautifully said.

I have followed Megan for years. This book is something I would recommend for anyone struggling with an ED also any human that is alive in the era we are living in of fat phobia. I believe educating yourself on this topic is so incredibly important for us and future generations. I am recovered and some days still recovering. The body positive movement has been a huge part of my success learning to love and treat my body with respect. So much love for Megan.

ALL THE FEELS

I sobbed, laughed, and cheered my way through this book. Every single second of it. I never knew somebody could understand so deeply the ways that I’ve felt my entire life. Thank you Megan, I can honestly say that you’ve saved my life. All my love and gratitude to you and the body positivity world. This book belongs in the hands of every person trying to navigate their way through this twisted diet diseased world. We are so much more than our bodies and Megan taught me that.
