I found this book offensive in a few ways, including the author’s assumption that people in larger bodies are diagnosable with food addiction, citing the only symptom as “an inability to lose weight” and her puritanical beliefs about abstinence, especially around sexual triggers. I was hoping for some insight on how to navigate more mindfully in a world with so many screens and apps designed to steal my attention, but I don’t agree with her base values and beliefs and her supposition that *all* dopamine is bad or a slippery slope to addiction.
