Publisher's Summary

There are so many diets out there, but what if you want to eat well and lose weight without dieting, counting, or restricting? What if you want to love your body, not punish it? Registered dietitian Abby Langer is here to help. For the past 20 years, Abby has worked with clients from all walks of life to free them from restrictive diets and help them heal their relationship with food - because all food is good for us - yes, even carbs and fats - and all diets are bad. 

Diets are like Band-Aids for what’s really bothering us. Although we might lose weight, they prey on our insecurities, rob us of time and money, and often leave us with the same negative views of food and our bodies that we’ve always had. And when the weight comes back, we still haven’t solved the real issues behind our eating habits - our “why”. 

This book is different. Chapter by chapter, Abby helps uncover that “why” and explains how to make lasting, meaningful changes in the way we see food, nutrition, ourselves, and the world. In this book, you’ll learn how guilt and shame affect your food choices, how fullness and satisfaction aren’t the same feeling, why it’s important to quiet your “diet voice” and enjoy food, and what the best way to eat is according to science. 

Empowering, inclusive, smart, and a must-have, Good Food, Bad Diet will give you the tools to reject diets, repair your relationship with food, and lose weight so you can move on with your life.

All in one nutrition guide

This book covers everything from toxic diet culture to nutrition school 101 in a fun and comedic manner. Abby happily debunks so many myths in her field and explains the science flawlessly.

real world perspective

the narrator was effective and did not distract from the message of the book. the message for me was to eat to live and yes it's okay to live to eat too. you only live once so enjoy it and be smart about it. take care of yourself and listen to your body ie your needs. if diets were the answer there would not be a new one every day. let go of the pressure to be perfect and you lose the stress that is a bigger part of the problem.

Good content, terrible language

The book had a lot of good in it, and great narration. It offered a lot to think about in regards to the toxic diet culture, and it helped me in the way I approach food. Unfortunately It is filled with expletives, the f word sprinkled generously throughout, so that I could not listen to it out loud with my children around, nor would I reccomend it to other moms with children in the home. It is disappointing, because the book could have easily been written with better descriptors and more creative adjectives than four letter words. The shock value of those words is completely lost when they are used so frequently. They become grating and irritating after a very short while. So eat wisely! Eat the good foods in life! And maybe wash it all down with a good bar of Ivory soap.
