"Food is Love (But Don’t Eat Too Much!)”
Eat less. Eat clean. Avoid these foods. Eating is a life-giving pleasure, but confusing messages from the diet and nutrition industries may leave you wondering what to eat. Do you find yourself:
- Eating food that doesn’t nourish or energize you?
- Munching mindlessly or emotionally?
- Flipping between feeling "good" and "bad" about your eating?
- Thinking about food and your body more than you’d like?
Discover how to trust your body, and to eat with love and common sense:
- Eat without deprivation or overeating
- Accept your body and trust its wisdom
- Deal with setbacks, destructive thoughts, and self-defeating attitudes
- Create healthy habits to nurture yourself
- Ditch dieting so you free yourself to live a life you love.
Nourish will guide you to transform your eating from self-control to self-love, using a 10-step healing process. In this book, Heidi Schauster, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S, founder of Nourishing Words Nutrition Therapy, shares 20 years of wisdom from her Boston-area practice in disordered and emotional eating.
“In this brilliant and ground-breaking book, you’ll discover a powerful way to let go of ‘dieting’ and awaken an intimate, intuitive connection with your body, mind, and spirit.”
Tara Brach, Author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge
“Nourish will change how you listen to your hunger, physically and emotionally. Nourish is like no other book I’ve read, and it is a gift to the health field and the world in general.”
Hannah Saxe, LICSW, Therapist and Eating Disorders Specialist
“Nourish integrates the science of nutrition with holistic and attuned self-care. This is literally the only nutrition book I feel safe recommending to my clients.”
Marci Evans, MS, CEDRD-S, LDN, cPT, Food and Body Image Healer, Eating Disorders Expert
"This book is such a blessing. My daughter has anorexia and Heidi Schauster hit the spot with this.
In Nourish, the focus is on relationships with food rather than dieting. This focus works for everyone. Both overeaters and undereaters will find this book useful. Nourish is sure to help with a host of eating problems. I plan to purchase this book and add it to my daughter's reading list for her therapy."
Kathi Procopio, Parent
"Calling all emotional eaters and anyone who has struggled with dieting on and off over the years... you need this book! In this easy-to-follow guide, Heidi offers some awesome tips for how to trust your body and to eat with love and common sense. This book would be an awesome gift for anyone you know who is feeling frazzled, who struggles with emotional eating or weight loss, or who could just use some reminders about self-care."

"I read this book in a day because I couldn't put it down. Although I have never had an eating disorder I think most people have had some issue with food and their bodies. I'm often surrounded by my co-workers that have given up this food, or on that diet or now taking some type of supplement to speed up the process of losing weight. This book a great job of reframing my thinking around how judgmental we can be about ourselves and the negative thoughts that go through our head. She didn't force a program or a way of eating on you but made you stop to question things that go beyond eating. I will be reading this again to take even more in and sharing with friends. The title is Nourish but it goes way beyond how to nourish yourself with food but really how to feed your soul and move beyond that negative talk to be okay with who you are."
