I received another book via #netgalley. It's about woman and their opinion of themselves.
Taryn made a movie about women and why they don't like their bodies. She talks to different women within the book and tries to analyse, why diets don't work and why every woman should love herself. It was a "ok" for, sometimes it was too emotional...

Buechersuechtling Uhem. Sorry, I need to speak up and object. Diets do work. If not, it‘s mostly not the fault of the diet but is rooted in a lack of self-discipline and/or a missing awareness of that it‘s in many cases necessary to keep (at least some) changed eating habits up even after one has reached the weight s/he was aiming for. 4mo

Buechersuechtling @Sarah83 Da hast du wohl recht, dass es ein Unterschied ist, ob man wegen eines BMI >25-26 abnehmen will oder weil man meint, in Size Zero passen wollen zu müssen. 4mo
Sarah83 @Buechersuechtling das meine ich, nur weil man dicker ist, muss man nicht sofort krank sein, wie es einem oft verkauft werden soll. 4mo
