Waterstones Says

A timely and passionate polemic against the diet industry and oppressive social convention, Light's empowering volume distils vital information from psychotherapists, nutritionists and fitness experts on how to stop viewing our bodies as imperfect works in progress.

An urgent, enlightening and empowering guide to disavowing diet culture and learning to make peace with our bodies, from body confidence and anti-diet advocate, Alex Light.

When we look in the mirror, so many of us see a 'before' picture: the miserable person in the side-by-side shot waiting for the 'glow-up' (read: weight loss) that will bring true happiness. But it's not our fault that we see our bodies as projects in need of constant work: this is just one of the beliefs that has been ingrained in us by diet culture. We have been taught to view ourselves as a collection of 'problem' areas for which the billion-dollar diet industry holds the solutions.

Step-by-step, You Are Not A Before Picture provides a framework for changing the way we view ourselves and the world around us. Working with experts in the fields of psychotherapy, fitness and nutrition, Alex empowers readers to interrogate their underlying beliefs, challenge the external and internal forces that are holding us back, and finally find freedom in our bodies, for good.

“A must-read”

I wish I had this book ten years ago when I was knee-deep in a hellish relationship with my body, food and exercise. It dives deep into the history of diet culture, how the media has reinforced the notion of the thin... More

“A purposefully written book; a strong guide to changing bad habits”
