Publisher's Summary

Just Eat It isn’t just an audiobook. It’s part of a movement to give women power and control over our bodies. To free us from restrictive dieting, disordered eating and punishing exercise. To reject the guilt and anxiety associated with eating and, ultimately, to help us feel good about ourselves.

This anti-diet guide from registered nutritionist Laura Thomas PhD can help you sort out your attitude to food and ditch punishing exercise routines. As a qualified practitioner of Intuitive Eating - a method that helps followers tune in to innate hunger and fullness cues - Thomas gives you the freedom to enjoy food on your own terms.

There are no rules: only simple, practical tools and exercises including mindfulness techniques to help you recognise physiological and emotional hunger, sample conversations with friends and colleagues, and magazine and blog critiques that call out diet culture.

So, have you ever been on a diet? Spent time worrying that you looked fat when you could have been doing something useful? Compared the size of your waistline to someone else's? Felt guilt, actual guilt, about the serious crime of...eating a doughnut? You're not alone. Just Eat It gives you everything you need to develop a more trusting, healthy relationship with food and your body.

The audiobook of Just Eat It includes four bonus podcast episodes featuring the author, Laura Thomas PhD, RNutr, and a contributor per episode including Sofie Hagen, Natalie Lee (of StyleMeSunday), Tally Rye and Clemmie Telford. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

Absolutely Life changing!

Thank you so much for writing your book. For years I’ve been restricting & binging. Punishing myself for not being able to stick to a diet, berating myself for failing to stick to my low carb, no sugar, no dairy, no fun existence and being OBSESSED with food/body image which has captivated every waking moment. Thank you for making me feel normal and inviting my body to make the decisions - it’s honestly life changing. Your book is lighthearted and beautifully written. Thank you, thank you, thank you

Incredibly honest

I have to admit that I haven't finished this book yet. In fact, when I bought it I was pretty sure that I would probably end up exchanging it for something else, most likely a book about Keto or Intermittent Fasting since they are the latest diets that guarantee rapid weight loss without pain or denial.
The thing is, I have tried all of the latest diets, pretty much from the time I was 18. When I started trying different diets I was not actually overweight, I just felt compelled to be thinner than I was because I wanted to look like the stick figures that I was seeing on the TV and in magazines. Now, here I am, 40 years later and still rolling from one diet to another.
Today, however, I started listening to this book. It is not wishy washy, it does not promise anything, it is just downright honest. Food is not the problem.

Loved the audiobook

When I was younger, I thought I had real issues with my body but the real problems were in my head. In reality I was hitting the gym six times a week and was in great shape but I had convinced myself that I was overweight, which resulted in some really bad diet and exercise decisions that led me to permanently damaging my back.

If only the younger me had read this book, which offers level headed, positive dietary advice but more importantly helps you appreciate that you can do your body some good, without constantly criticising it or doing it harm by excess.

As an avid listener of the podcast it was great to hear Laura narrate this audiobook with the care and attention that we all love her for!

Just what I've been waiting for

I have been eagerly awaiting this book since Laura announced it and purchased both a print copy and an audio book. Obviously as it was the release date today I haven't made it through the whole thing yet but I received my print copy a few days early and after looking through the 400+ pages, reading sections and today listening to a good chunk of the audio book I am already very impressed. The book is packed with valuable information and appears to be set out very well, the information is accessible and Laura's delivery of the audiobook seems to be brilliant (no surprise to those who listen to her podcast). I can't wait to work my way through the whole book and firmly believe that it will be a game changer for so many people. Thank you Laura!

Compassionate and real

Evidence-based advice from somebody who knows their subject. Well-informed and full of tools to help you give up food rules while tuning back into your body and the signals it is giving you. Nourishment for body and soul. I wish I had this book years ago. The author is clear and her compassion shines through.

This book will teach you make peace with food

I am a nutritionist, have been following Laura's work for 2 years and was looking forward to the book for a while. The book teaches how to apply intuitive eating in real life which is a non-diet nutrition approach used by nutritionists and dietitians with clients who are chronic dieters or have a problematic relationship with food. It is aimed at the general public and is written in an easy to understand way. I think it's a good resource to get someone started with intuitive eating. If you are sick and tired of dieting and feeling guilty of what you eat, this book is for you!
