Publisher's Summary

"An indispensable resource for women of all ages, this is a guide to help us better connect to ourselves, to value ourselves, to love ourselves, and ultimately, to be ourselves." (Chelsea Clinton)

Positive body image isn’t believing your body looks good; it is knowing your body is good, regardless of how it looks.

  • How do you feel about your body?
  • Have you ever stayed home from a social activity or other opportunity because of concern about how you looked?
  • Have you ever passed judgment on someone because of how they looked or dressed?
  • Have you ever had difficulty concentrating on a task because you were self-conscious about your appearance?

Our beauty-obsessed world perpetuates the idea that happiness, health, and ability to be loved are dependent on how we look, but authors Lindsay and Lexie Kite offer an alternative vision. With insights drawn from their extensive body image research, Lindsay and Lexie—PhDs and founders of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined (and also twin sisters!)—lay out an action plan that arms you with the skills you need to reconnect with your whole self and free yourself from the constraints of self-objectification.

From media consumption to health and fitness to self-reflection and self-compassion, Lindsay and Lexie share powerful and practical advice that goes beyond “body positivity” to help listeners develop body image resilience—all while cutting through the empty promises sold by media, advertisers, and the beauty and weight-loss industries. In the process, they show how facing your feelings of body shame or embarrassment can become a catalyst for personal growth.

More than a Body

A must read. I thought I knew about the effects of influencers but I actually had little idea. A huge eye opener. It feels good to feel good about myself.

The start of my next steps - highly recommended

This book was recommended to me by my HAES dietician. I have been working towards body acceptance for 6 years (I'm 26) and this is different to what I have been experiencing. I thought I was stuck with not hating my body, stuck on my life raft of "I guess I'll struggle with this my entire life". But I believe these teachings will help me keep moving forward, in a new way. I am ready to be on the beach, not in the ocean anymore.
