You Are Not a Before Picture: How to Finally Make Peace with Your Body, for Good Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
An urgent, enlightening and empowering guide to disavowing diet culture and learning to make peace with our bodies, from body confidence and anti-diet advocate Alex Light.
When we look in the mirror, so many of us see a ‘before’ picture: the miserable person in the side-by-side shot waiting for the ‘glow-up’ (read: weight loss) that will bring true happiness. But it’s not our fault that we see our bodies as projects in need of constant work: this is just one of the beliefs that has been ingrained in us by diet culture. We have been taught to view ourselves as a collection of ‘problem’ areas for which the billion-dollar diet industry holds the solutions.
Step-by-step, You Are Not a Before Picture provides a framework for changing the way we view ourselves and the world around us. Working with experts in the fields of psychotherapy, fitness and nutrition, Alex empowers listeners to interrogate their underlying beliefs, challenge the external and internal forces that are holding us back and finally find freedom in our bodies, for good.

P.s please campaign to get this book given to high school/teenage aged girls, it will change their whole output on body image. I so wish I had had it from a young age!
Not only was it incredibly interesting, full of facts and statics that I never knew or expected, it was also written with such thought and passion. The topics within this book are extremely important to Alex and it positively shows. Her experiences and understanding of such makes her insites and advice even more powerful.
Alex has a true talent for writing and it was displayed perfectly in this book. If you only read one book this year, then it should be this.
