Diet Rebel’s Book Club

With Anna Jones, RD.

Ever bought a book about health and wellness and instead of reading it it just sat and collected dust?

I hear this often from people who are interested in Intuitive Eating and exploring the non-diet approach. They buy the book, maybe the true original by Tribole and Resch – a wonderful resource by the creators of Intuitive Eating, they get a little way in but then somehow life gets in the way, and it doesn’t get finished.

If this is you too, you are not alone. Even with the very best of intentions it is so common for this to happen.

No matter how intrigued and ready we are to learn more and embrace these concepts, that after years of struggling with food finally make so much sense, we just can’t seem to make it past the first chapter.

This is why I’ve started my Diet Rebel’s Book Club!

The Diet Rebel’s Book Club is a small group led by me for people just like you who want to embrace and learn how to practically apply the concepts of Intuitive Eating and this non-diet perspective and learn how to care for yourself and let go of dieting and restriction.

It is a judgement-free place to come to learn and listen and share your own, and hear others’, experiences while you navigate this journey of letting go of diets and figuring out what to do instead.

It is an opportunity to be in community and walk alongside others who like you are interested in learning more about this different, more peaceful and rewarding, way of considering food and your body.

How it works…

I periodically choose one of the many wonderful non-diet books to read through and then meet once a month to discuss it in a small group. We will spend time talking about key points, answering questions that come up and discussing what it looks like to practically apply these non-diet concepts in real-life.

“Anna, Thank you for recommending the book More Than a Body: Your Body is an Instrument, Not an Ornament and for leading a life altering discussion on how we personally view our bodies. It helped me to more fully appreciate the multiple ways my body serves me on a daily basis. My body is my home and I am grateful for the miraculous gifts it has provided me: giving me the ability to birth a daughter and a son are the greatest examples, to everyday pleasures like hiking through the woods or riding my bike. Instead of being a critic of this body where I reside, I now view my body with gratitude and praise.”

What a group member, Mary, had to say about our last book choice.

**Special Bonus**: the author Alissa has offered a signed bookplate plus a Q & A session with her, exclusively for our group!
