These words are music to our ears: ‘Your weight is not the problem’.

In this new book released on January 10, Lyndi Cohen (otherwise known as @nude_nutritionist on Instagram) helps to liberate us from food guilt and self-blame with a refreshing new approach to health.

Spoiler alert: It’s not about willpower or counting calories, because you can’t live a full life on an empty stomach.

As a nutritionist and dietitian, Lyndi Cohen’s plan to break free from the dieting trap is a simple one. She offers small, doable healthy habits that you can stick to – no matter how busy life gets.

Offering evidence-based strategies that will help you find freedom with food – while also building a trusting, healthy relationship with your body – Lyndi helps readers realise that health and happiness aren’t about having a perfectly flat stomach or a cellulite-free tush. Being comfortable in your skin and having the energy to do the things you love is the real key to happiness.

Given that more than 60% of Australians are trying to lose weight, but 95% regain this weight back (according to the 2021 ‘Australia Talks’ National Survey), it’s clear we need a new approach. 

Now is the time to dismantle the diet myths and ‘food rules’ that keep people stuck on the diet treadmill and to embrace a new approach.

In ‘Your Weight is Not the Problem’, Lyndi offers a customisable ‘healthy habits hierarchy’ that meets you where you are. She addresses common mental health pitfalls including diet triggers, all-or-nothing thinking, comparison and more.

With her signature honest, back-to-basics approach, Lyndi continues to call out nutrition nonsense and promote real health and body acceptance – both in her new book, and in her roles as resident nutritionist on Channel 9’s TODAY show, columnist for Mamamia, host of the podcast No Wellness Wankery and regularly featured expert on News.com.au, Kidspot, body+soul and The Sydney Morning Herald.
