(Reviewed by Jeyran Main)
The Body Image Blueprint is a self-help book written about body image. It discusses the challenges women face in the world today and covers a broad and unique perspective on our culture obsessed with dieting.
Besides the fact that author Jenny Berk is a Certified Eating Psychology Coach, body image mentor, and an international speaker, she also has had her own struggle with the issue and therefore her book has a more personal approach.
The book contains conversations, discussions, interviews, techniques, and much more information regarding this serious matter.
I particularly liked the fact that Jenny specializes on binge eating and discusses techniques on how to be mindful of your eating practices. I believe with all the diets and methods out there these days, it is very hard to figure out which one is going to work for you personally. However, Jenny makes sure that no matter what your trouble is, you can still benefit from this book.
Another special thing about this book is that it also provides stories and journeys of others just to make sure that the reader knows that they aren’t alone in this.
I found the literature to be easy to understand. The layout and structure of the book were pleasantly organized in a way that there was nothing confusing about it. The psychological facts and demeanour of the subject matter were also included in the content of the book making it suitable for any professional wishing to add it to their reading list. I believe the author has taken a decent amount of time creating this book and her hard work has paid off.
I recommend The Body Image Blueprint to anyone who wishes to read more on body image and is struggling to deal with the issue.
