Shelves: young-adult
I am on the hunt for body positive books for my teen nonfiction collection so I was really excited to read NO WEIGH and see if this fit the bill. The majority of this book is awesome -- clear and concise, with a lot of concrete ways to engage in connected eating (seems very similar to intuitive eating), joyful movement, and stress relief. Some of the references might feel a little off for teens (such as evoking Jennifer Lawrence) but overall I enjoyed this book. My only worry is that it is a wor ...more

I highly recommend this insightful workbook which uses a plethora of cognitive behavioural, dialectical, and narrative therapeutic approaches to revolutionise healthy eating for teens!

As both a teen (for one more year at least) and someone who has struggled with body image, food, and emotions, I found this book to be wonderful. It was short, easy to understand, and loaded with helpful advice that I wish I had gotten when I was just beginning my teenage years.

A simple guide and workbook for teenagers about facing body image, weight and health issues.



This is a positive guide to help teens reevaluate how they view and judge themselves and their body from not taking the scale at face value or comparing themselves constantly to others in the media or around them.



With space to write and tips for thought changing, this book will help them understand and adapt their bad thoughts into positive ones to help them in the future and grow from where they are now.

A really well written book that gave great advice and was written in a way that wasn't patronising, but wasn't too adult either. I enjoyed the range of exercises that it provided, and the way it helps in many aspects of life, not just in food and body image. I would highly recommend this book to all young people, and even adults too.

This is a very interesting and informative book on body positivity for teens, there are tips for thought changing, which I thought were very helpful. It is short so it will be a quick read but I will be very useful to teens who need it. I would really recommend it.

How uplifting! I don't suffer from body image, but if I did this is a great book! Thank you netgalley for the free arc in exchange for an honest review!
