This manifesto is a lifeline to others who are struggling with food, body image, weight issues, and/or eating disorders. It's for anyone who wants to make peace both with food and with themselves.
Imagine where we could all be, going after our own goals, hopes, and dreams, fulfilling ourselves with what matters most to each of us, if we would just get off the diet-go-round and start moving in the direction we actually wanted to go.
The Manifesto's 5 Lessons
What Readers Are Saying
Shelli isn't the only person I know who's lost over 100 pounds, but she's the only one who's kept it off. She says she can get you off the diet-go-round and she can, and she'll do it with compassion, straight talk, and no shame.
Better than anyone, we each know our bodies best. Yet we give so much power to the opinions and beliefs of others when it comes to the way we eat, the way we look and especially how much we weigh. Shelli has overcome these obstacles and obsessions and taken back her power. She found the answer and has maintained a healthy weight for years. She can help you reconnect with your wisdom and power and get off the diet-go-round forever too.
A refreshing take on weight loss, this manifesto will empower you to stop dieting once and for all. Shelli writes like a friend guiding and encouraging you, telling you the truth you need to hear in a gentle but firm way.
The media would have us believe that to lose weight—and keep it off—requires trained professionals, specialized diets, and unrivaled discipline. Shelli challenges all of these assertions and gives us the five truths about weight loss, and it's both freeing and scary to know that it's something that is entirely in our control. But with her supportive and nurturing, yet direct, style of communication, you will finish this manifesto knowing that it is possible.
