Start loving your body
Inside Out is an easy-to-follow 14-Day guide covering all aspects of body image and self-esteem.
by Anastasia Amour
Effortlessly applying proven psychological techniques in a way that feels less like self-help and more like a really deep chat with a close friend, Anastasia Amour weaves science with emotion; infusing her personal experiences in obesity, yo-yo dieting, near-fatal Anorexia Nervosa and self-loathing with the strategies she used to completely transform herself.
You’ll learn how to make peace with your flaws (and even come to love them), stop negative thoughts about your body taking over and develop a healthy relationship with food and exercise. And best of all, you’ll be given the tools you need to continue a thriving mind-body relationship for the rest of your life.
“Inside Out is perfect for any woman who has ever felt self-conscious about her body.
So, it’s perfect for every woman.”
Inside Out will help you to…

Build resilience for
Even the strongest body positive warrior will stumble sometimes… and it’s not how hard you fall, but how high you bounce. Learn effective strategies to manage negative thoughts and be able to find body peace and self-acceptance (even on days where you just want to cry).
Nourish your mind
Let’s get one thing clear: I’m not going to tell you how to “eat clean”. What I AM going to tell you is how to eat intuitively, mindfully and untie years of food guild and complex emotional ties. Food freedom is yours, baby!
Rethink how you move your body
Because contrary to what fitspo memes will tell you, sweat is NOT fat crying and exercise is NOT about punishment! And when you find joyful ways of moving, everything changes for the better.
With 14 specially designed mental exercises rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you overcome your mental obstacles, you’ll no longer feel like a prisoner to your thoughts. And not just for the short term, I’ll show you how to make these exercises practical and customisable to use forever.
“Inside Out is a book that will transform the way you think, talk, and feel about yourself, in the best way possible! I think all women will benefit from it and I don’t say that lightly.”

“I love that Inside Out is a workbook because it allows you to easily read through it. Being able to put into practice the advice and affirmations she provides for you in each chapter is crucial to changing the way you see and talk to your body.

As practical as it is personal
The 14 exercises included in Inside Out draw on psychological techniques for triggering long term and sustainable mental change – but the exercises don’t feel heavy. It’s not like sitting in a therapist’s office with a notebook; anxiously jotting down notes and feeling judged while they stare at you. They can be completed any time, any where. They’re easy, they’re fun and most of all, they won’t take long to become habitual. This means that you’ll start to feel their positive effects almost immediately – because being able to watch your own mental progress is a beautiful thing.
Complete in 14 days
Unlike most 7, 14 or 21 day plans, this isn’t a quick fix or a fad. This is designed to create long lasting habits that you can carry with you, throughout your life. The exercises you’ll be doing and the information that you’ll be absorbing are easy and sustainable and you’ll actually want to keep doing them after you’ve finished reading Inside Out. And another beautiful thing? You can pick the book back up again at any point. You can read it again in any order. You can pace yourself as fast or as slow as you like. You get to be in the driver’s seat.
I know how important visual cues can be in the learning process. That’s why each chapter also comes complete with a beautifully lettered illustration affirmation. They’re the perfect companion to the strategies that you’re learning – rip them out, stick them on your mirror and every time you glance at them, put them in your purse to look at during the day… it’s entirely up to you. The visual affirmations give you a wonderful opportunity to run through the concepts you’ve learned that day.
Practical advice from someone who has been where you are now.
I’ve been through my own journey of body loathing, including obesity, a near-fatal 5 year battle with Anorexia Nervosa and every “Oh my God my self-esteem is at rock bottom…” moment you can imagine. Now it’s my mission to help every woman on the planet find self-love. Fusing the effectiveness of proven psychological strategies with the comfort of chatting with a best friend, Inside Out is the ideal blend of science and emotion.
