Spotlight: Return to Food: The Life-Changing Anti-Diet by Sherry Strong

While me and Gabby were at the Inspire Toronto International Book Fair, we have the pleasure of meeting Sherry Strong while in the Green Room.

Sherry Strong is the author of Return to Food: The Life-Changing Anti-Diet.

She introduced us to her book, and we had a nice little talk about body image among teen girls, diets, and eating habits.

A cool thing about her book is the illustrations found inside, which she did herself!

What got Gabby’s attention was her talk with Sherry.  They discussed that, as Gabby is a teenager herself, she is surround by  media that romanticizes fitness, but all that teen girls can find are unrealistic images.

Gabby felt that a book like Sherry’s, which was appealing to Gabby from a teen perspective, would promote proper eating habits, instead of girls feeling guilty with everything they eat, or starving themselves to achieve an unrealistic standard of beauty.

Gabby felt that it was an awesome opportunity to speak with someone who actually got it…who understood where Gabby’s thoughts were coming from.

Definitely a book worth checking out.
