The F*ck It Diet
The F*ck It Diet: Eating Should Be Easy | Caroline Dooner
3 posts | 3 read | 1 reading | 3 to read
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. What’s the one thing the $60-billion-dollar diet industry doesn’t want you to know? Diets don’t work. Our bodies are hardwired against them. But instead of wondering what’s wrong with dieting, we wonder what’s wrong with us. 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. It’s time to give up the shame and start eating to live—happily.

1. Can‘t wait to read the tagged book cuz I‘ve been in a f*ck it kinda mood lately.
2. I haven‘t because I‘m not really sure how to post all those cute maps and stuff.
3. I look for excuses to walk a lot throughout the day and take walks with my family.
4. This is Ray, my husband‘s (likely/possibly) pre-diabetic and certainly rude cat. His cuteness is growing on me though! 😻

A friend of mine highly recommended this, calling it things like life changing. maybe I‘m just not in the mental space to accept it right now, but it‘s not something I am ready to try. I see the basis behind it and can accept that, but I have not always been overweight, so it‘s hard for me to buy into the idea that my body just naturally wants to weigh 70lbs more than it did 10 years ago. I also think her “research” is highly cherry picked.

OrangeMooseReads I‘ve always been larger and/or over weight for the most part, the idea that my body naturally wants to be like that seems a bit odd to me. If my body wanted to be over weight it wouldn‘t be uncomfortable with the added pounds. 2mo
QueenJen I've always been larger or over weight. I quit worrying about dieting when I realized I like chips and chocolate cake to much to say no. I am what I am regardless of what I weigh. I feel good, I'm confident and I try to be a kind person. Food isn't my issue. My soul is. 2mo

I‘ve long been a fan of Dooner‘s online writing about her anti-diet (which, BTW, she named ages ago, before half of the self-help books published had “f*ck” in the title!! 😛). This is a great summary of her common-sense yet deep and holistic approach. Good inclusion of scientific data, and excellent thoughts about health at any size, the perils of dieting-induced stress, and how counterproductive restricting or demonizing foods is. (Audio = 💯)
