Why Did I Just Eat That? is a motivating, heart-warming, and educational book full of inspiring information! For those who want to understand and make meaningful, values-driven steps towards a respectful relationship with their body and food, I highly recommend this book. Lisa D. Ellis does a phenomenal job creating a compassionate guide to change, which includes ways to be accountable and bolster self-reflection. As Lisa integrates a systemic approach—family dynamics, physiology, psychology, and nutrition—the content is thoughtful, relatable, and well -organized. Using various interactive tools, such as metaphors, case studies, affirmations, and thought records, Lisa gently encourages readers to identify food messages/associations, alternative beliefs, essential emotions, and evolve perspectives. I appreciated how the information was validating and normalizing. I found this to be a refreshing and thoughtfully planned self-help book, and I was grateful for the humor and the consistent reminders to practice self-kindness!
