Rather than promoting the deprivation that is typical of modern day diet mentality, Michelle Minero graciously invites us to imagine how our lives and our world might be different if, instead, we fed ourselves a consistent diet of loving thoughts and kind behaviors. She offers up surprisingly easy-to-follow, practical steps for doing so, skillfully demonstrating how following the path of self-love can lead to freedom from body hatred and eating difficulties. This book is a gift for anyone struggling with eating, weight, and negative body image!

Author, Eating in the Light of the Moon
This book is a must read. It is especially helpful for anyone with an eating disorder or chronic dieting and the people who love them. What a wonderful world it would be if women loved and accepted themselves and their bodies unconditionally. Michelle Minero helps the reader along that path. She helps us to see the ways that our society and we ourselves perpetuate self-criticism. She then presents ways in which we can change that critical self-talk into self-love. At the end of each chapter Michelle Minero gives practical action points that help the reader incorporate the key concepts into their life. I will definitely be recommending Self-Love Diet: The Only Diet That Works to my patients and their families.

This book presents in a creative and accessible style a basic premise of self-help and wellbeing: self-love. Michelle Minero has been able to encapsulate and present in an easy to understand practice and put into action this difficult to grasp and even more difficult to internalize principle. Self-Love Doet: The Only Diet That Works will help many with eating disorders, and I recommend it to every clinician working with individuals strugging with self-acceptance. Kudos to Michelle for putting forth this valuable tool.
