My body is beautiful because… (fill in the blank) . My body is beautiful because it is mine. Because it is super strong (okay, like not THAT strong, but pretty strong. haha.) My body is beautiful because it carried and grew my daughter. . This is what I’m writing on Instagram today, but this is not always what I’m thinking. . Today I’m partnering with @amazonpublishing to share with you Kimberly Rae Miller’s book about her journey to figuring out what the ideal body is. (synopsis below) I am constantly trying to understand my relationship with food (I know that pizza and I are in a steady and secure relationship, but it’s pretty complicated with everything else) I’m always at odds with my body. I’m very interested in giving this a read and hoping it will give me some positive body stigma pieces to collect on my own journey. . Thank you to Amazon publishing for sending me this book! #amazonpublishing #beautifulbodies . Synopsis: Like most people, Kimberly Rae Miller does not have the perfect body, but that hasn’t stopped her from trying. And trying. And trying some more. Her first attempt to use food to change her body came at age four, when she learned that the Inuit ate fat to stay warm in the winter. If this diet worked in the Arctic, she reasoned, why not in Long Island? Postcollege, after a brief stint as a diet-pill model, she became a health-and-fitness writer and editor working on celebrities’ bestselling bios—sugarcoating the trials and tribulations celebs endure to stay thin. . But what is the ideal body? Knowing she’s far from alone in this struggle, Kim sets out to find the objective definition of this seemingly unattainable level of perfection. While on a fascinating and hilarious journey through time that takes her from obese Paleolithic cavewomen, to the bland menus that Drs. Graham and Kellogg prescribed to promote good morals in addition to good health, to the binge-drinking-prone regimen that caused William the Conqueror’s body to explode at his own funeral, Kim ends up discovering a lot about her relationship with her own body.
