— 5-star review from Readers Favorite
“Worth It is a revolutionary and refreshingly honest guide to reclaim true health and wellness, and it has nothing to do with a certain size or weight! This book exposes the insanity of the diet industry, while giving the reader an immediate and practical action plan based on self love and care. Worth It is a powerful read for anyone, but if you are a mother, it is a must read now!”
— Peggy Belles, author of Peace in Pieces: A Memoir Told Through Poetry
"What a refreshing take on an issue so many women (and men) struggle with in today's society. Eat this. Don't eat that. Oh, wait, we were wrong, you can eat that. It's no wonder we have trouble viewing food as our fuel and friend. My favorite words in Katy's great book are found on page 50: "Healthy eating is flexible ... Healthy eating is intuitive ... Healthy eating means feeding yourself."
– Jodi Cole, author of Thorns & Roses: A self-help memoir for women with sexual dysfunction
“In a world where we are constantly bombarded with the latest diet trends and rules that too often determine what is 'good' or 'bad' for us, Katy Weber's book is a breath of fresh air. In Worth It she dismantles the unhealthy mindset we so easily succumb to in our persistent quest to achieve what we wrongly believe will help us at last feel worthy as women. Katy bravely opens up about her own personal roller coaster through one weight loss effort after another, through her gains and losses, and at last to a place of freedom. As a health coach myself, I have been freshly challenged to follow my intuition more keenly where food is concerned. Worth It encourages the reader to break free from the bondage of food and body image slavery in this book that I found to be a pleasurable, informative, and fairly quick read."
— Jennifer Zimmer, author of 30 Days to Thriving: Practical Inspiration for Reclaiming Your Hope & Health
“This relatable, well told story of learning to love your body and create freedom from the restrictive dieting mentality is a must read for anyone struggling with yo-yo dieting, compulsive overeating or binge eating behaviors. Releasing the dieting mentality is hard. Learning to love your body no matter its size is hard. The 6 steps to working towards freedom from dieting delivered in Katy’s book creates a sense that it is indeed possible. This book offers opportunities to learn how to change your perspective on food, change the way you eat and love the way you feel from the inside out!"
