Pleasurable audiobook

Don't let the title fool you. It is not only about weight loss but claiming a healthy approach to life based on claiming holistic values ascribed to the feminine; cherishing our bodies, opening to pleasurable connection to others and reveling in embodiment versus deprivation. All of this supports weight loss in ways that surpass so many unsustainable and strict dieting approaches but just as relevantly, pleasure moves us out of our busy minds and helps us experience all that is sacred.

the only "weight loss" book you will ever need

If you could sum up Pleasurable Weight Loss in three words, what would they be?

your pleasure is important. it is the only reason to be alive. we have been taught to repress it for long enough. this book helped a lot. it has been the missing link in initiating all my knowledge of health that i know but have not applied.

What other book might you compare Pleasurable Weight Loss to and why?

i read woman food and desire from alexandra jamieson prior and it was a very good lead into this book. especially since this book referenced it!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

the insights on what my cravings could be were eye opening. the idea that my weight gain is not a punishment for living unhealthy but only a call to help from my body to me. to enjoy my life more and be an authentic me.
