The Goddess Revolution - Make Peace with Foods, Love Your Body and Reclaim Your Life by Mel Wells
On the Back of the Book
If you've ever struggled with diets, food, body image or your weight, then The Goddess Revolution is your new handbook for life. Imagine how much your would fall in love with your life again if you weren't so consumed by negative thoughts about food, your weight and your body. Imagine if you could effortlessly find yourself at your perfect weight, in your perfect body and feel happier and freer around food than ever before.
Former actress and model Mel Wells struggled with her body image and had an unhealthy relationship with food for many years. Realizing what a negative impact this was having on her health, her relationships, her work and pretty much all aspects of her life, Mel knew she had to heal. She devised a unique method to transform her relationship with food and shares the techniques she's learned in this book.
Written with honesty and passion, The Goddess Revolution shows how it is possible to have a healthy, satisfying and guilt-free relationship with our bodies without any dieting or strict regimes. Tackling modern issues - including 'fitspiration' and the unrealistic strive for perfection caused by celebrity culture and magazine airbrushing - Mel shows us how we can truly start to show our body the love it deserves, take back our power around food and, in return, feel better than ever.

- Spiritual, feminine, re-connection
A goddess is a female being who's believed to be the source of life and being. Cultures worldwide worshipped goddesses from early times, although the Christianity movement in particular fazed it out. Today, however, there's a rising popularity in re-kindling connections with goddesses, especially from women who feel traditional religions lack the extra perspective and guidance they seek.
Celebrating goddesses offers a way of embracing and rediscovering female characteristics, of celebrating feminine abilities, thoughts and capabilities. It offers a form of spirituality that means something to women and celebrates their unique power and self-worth. Each goddess has her own characteristics and linking to the one that seems appropriate to you is said to help enhance those particularly qualities in your own life.

Aphrodite: Greek; pleasure, sensuality, love, passion
Artemis: Greek; nature, independence, courage, determination
