Author Spotlight: Mel WellsAmy Kiberd welcomes Food and Lifestyle Coach Mel Wells to the Hay House family
I am so excited to be working with Mel Wells on her book The Goddess Revolution: Food and Body Freedom for Life, due for release in June 2016.
When Mel came in to meet the team and share her mission with us, we were all struck by her passion for helping other women to overcome their issues with food and their bodies.
There are lots of authors who write about this, but there was something different about Mel. Not only was she speaking from a place of experience, having healed herself from brutal eating disorders and years of punishing her body, but she had a fire within her that made it clear that she was here to make big change in the world.
As I started to follow Mel’s work I saw her guide countless women to release the painful and difficult patterns of behaviours that were harming them, giving them newfound confidence and self-understanding.
I was so moved to learn how these women had managed to stop beating themselves up, and now felt able to love themselves fully – in all their messiness – as they moved towards their goals with healthy choices that truly nourished them, in every sense of the word.
Mel speaks in a voice that all of us can relate to, whether we’re feeling helpless and depressed about the sugary snacks we can’t seem to let go of and the extra pounds we are carrying as a result, or we’re doing everything ‘right’ when it comes to food, but are feeling miserable because we have no pleasure in our lives and still don’t feel good about our bodies.
Tackling very modern issues – including ‘fitspiration’ and the obsession with perfection caused by celebrity culture and magazine airbrushing, Mel shares practical tips and powerful tools that will help you to celebrate food, experience pleasure, and take back control of how you feel in your body and what you choose to put in it.
Women everywhere have had enough of being told that there is something wrong with them if they don’t fit into society’s idea of the ‘perfect body’ – while simultaneously being sold food that is full of chemicals and lacks the essential nourishment our bodies need.
The Goddess Revolution presents a revolutionary new way of thinking that will help women to end the war on their bodies for good, and I couldn’t be prouder to be helping Mel to spread this important message. Watch this space!
