The Body Love Manual: How to Love the Body You Have as You Create the Body You Want

Elizabeth Lily Hills, Peaceful Planet (www.TheBodyLoveManual.com), $17.95 trade paper (201p) ISBN 978-0-9819388-0-6
Hills, a life coach and self-empowerment workshop leader, shares her philosophy in this ode to mindful eating and cultivating a healthy body image. Hills encourages readers to come to terms with their bodies and engage in some serious self-love via affirmations, meditation, and other introspective exercises. She also urges readers to examine their relationships with food, long-held beliefs about eating, and practices like binging out of fear or avoidance and dieting to lose weight and feel more attractive. Hills's admission that she was once a yo-yo dieter obsessed with body image, along with pertinent statistics, gives her credibility, while her calm, reassuring tone should help readers tackle tough issues (though some, like the lingering effects of sexual abuse, are deftly sidestepped). While Hills's messages—examine why you eat, develop healthy eating habits, and accept your body for what it is instead of what it isn't—aren't particularly new, they aren't particularly harmful either, those interested in cultivating healthier habits through introspection will find this a helpful workbook.
