A good reading
I thought it was going to be a self-care book and a guide to loss weight and it's a lot more, it's a journey through the writer's story, one you can take with her. It's NOT a diet book, it's about listen and understand your body and its needs, always with common sense. Think healthy, LOVE YOURSELF, eat healthy and you can enjoy life (plus, you'll lose weight and never see it again). Of course there ...more
Yes, I've read my fair share of self-help books but it's the one's I constantly refer back to and the ones I never forget that have the greatest impact on my life, Bare is one of those books. I've read it and yes it has a lot of stuff I already read before but never truly implemented, I'm guessing it a combination of picking up the right book at the right time and Susan's writing style it really spoke to me.
I'm e ...more
I have read a lot of inspiring novels and weight loss, better you books in my career but this one I feel is extra personal because of Susan incorporating her personal experiences and struggles that made me feel as the reader not alone and part of a conversation as if we were meeting for lunch or coffee. I also loved the tips she had in the no ...more

The author does not believe in drastic diets but in intuitive and mindful eating,putting self-care and self-esteem first.
The main points of this program are presented via the author’s own experience and via her clients’ anecdotes.
While I enjoyed the style of the writing and personally agreed with most of the techniques,the notions were not new to me,having read several self-help and mindfulness books. I was probably expecting innova ...more
tl:dr: You have hang-ups, so did Hyatt. She can tell you how she changed.
I am a book-cover judger, usually. I pick up books to read based on aesthetics. I read this one for the cover. But, I'm glad that I did. The book deals with how one woman learned to like herself, itself a transgressive act. Much of this book deals with weight and health. The author, rightly I believe, suggests all our outside manifestations of inaction and second-guessing come from internal ch ...more
The fact that it’s more than a quick read, Bare takes you on a journey to finding the real you, the one who feels great, has more energy and finds confidence within!

Her guiding principle is loving yourself. When you go to do something ask yourself, "does this feel like love?" Whether its picking a tv show to watch, a new duvet cover, what you're going to eat for dinner, clothes you might be considering discarding.
She also emphasizes creating a space that feels uniquely you, and a space that makes you feel like your best self. She give ...more
Writing: The book reads well and doesn't lag anywhere. The writing is conversational and easy to go through.
Miscellaneous: I believe that mindset is very important in weight loss success but I also know that it's import ...more
I went to Susan's BARE book launch event in NYC. So much fun!!
I then read the book 3 times in a row and worked through it with my mom and my sister.
It was truly powerful - especially because I was reading it at the end of my pregnancy and postpartum with my daughter. I was having tiny body confidence issues, mostly because I felt gigantic (and had someone ask me 'how many babies I had in th ...more
Bare was honest and to the point, complete with exercise and notes to be filled later.
One minus point in my opinion, however, was that Susan did not include some tips for when the reader fall off the track. I mean, that happened, right?
But overall, it was a satisfying read and it already formed a 'what feels like love now?' in me.
(I received a digital ARC via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions ...more
