    The missing piece of my IE library

    Gentle Nutrition by Rachael Hartley is such a wonderful book for anyone trying to honor their body and practice self care completely divorced from the toxic influence of diet culture.On my IE journey, I’ve read the classic book by Evelyn Tribole & Elyse Resch (including the 4th edition) as well as Body Respect, Health at Every Size, and the fantastic Anti-Diet by Christy Harrison (among other writings). All have been so important in helping to identify diet culture in both society and in my thoughts and to delegitimize its tenets.However, I’ve felt there’s been a gap in the literature and that gap has been beautifully filled with Gentle Nutrition. I love how it re-frames nutrition broadly and making it more about self care, nourishing your body, and emphasizes satisfaction.The accompanying recipes (which are totally amazing, BTW–I have 4 kids ages 4-9 and most recipes are big hits with them) give the opportunity to put the principles of GN into practice.Love love love this book. The illustrations and images are gorgeous and the content is amazing. Highly recommend.

    This book will change your life!

    That sounds dramatic, but I genuinely mean it! Following the logic of this book gave me my life back. I have more energy, more headspace, and a more interesting life! Rachael is incredible and this book is magic.

    Quite poor for the price

    This book was disappointing. I still don’t really know what gentle nutrition really is. I understand the principle of eating a balanced meal but that could of been said in one chapter. There is a lot of talk of why diets don’t work which we already know and quite a few recipes at the end although some ingredients are not easy to find. Could of been told in a much shorter book and a cheaper one!

    Highly recommend

    As an RD myself, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is hoping to find a better relationship with food (as well as to other health care professionals.) It provides a really nice balance between intuitive eating and teaching people how to eat in a way that is “healthy” without needing to follow any rules. I also appreciate that she refers to a lot of interesting research while explaining the results in her own words in a simple and easy to understand way. I received the book just 2 days ago and finished it already. I couldn’t put it down!
