"A funny, edgy, comprehensive program for chronic dieters to help them escape the plague of diet culture, regain their personal power, and reboot their relationship with food, weight and self-worth.

Diet programs earn billions because they make people believe they're food addicts, lazy and weak, and that losing weight is the key to the life they truly want. The F*ck It Diet is the anti-diet, designed for anyone who feels guilt or pain over food, weight, and their bodies. Caroline Dooner calls BS on the diet industry as she reveals the truth about weight bias, tackles the flawed approach inherent in dieting, and guides readers through the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of the journey from miserable food obsession to true food ease. Dooner encourages us to eat the things our bodies want, and to be happy being healthy at whatever weight that might be. The F*ck It Diet is the only diet that works because it tackles two things at once: the biological reality that dieting triggers the body's famine response, and the mental, emotional, and cultural reasons that we become obsessed with food. By taking diets off the cultural pedestal, Dooner contends, we can reclaim mealtimes as pleasure and nourishment instead of a misguided test of willpower. Feminist, counter-culture and empathetic, The F*ck It Diet is a fresh, irreverent, and empowering call-to-arms for everyone berating themselves over yesterday's donut.
