Publisher's Summary

Learn to love yourself and body with this interactive guide from the body acceptance advocate, influencer, and founder of Megababe beauty.

Can you imagine how much free time you’d have if you didn’t spend so much of it body-shaming yourself? Katie Sturino knows all too well what it’s like to s--t-talk yourself. She spent 30 years of her life feeling ashamed of her body and its self-determined wrongness. Now she doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her; she only cares that she’s happy and comfortable with herself. Body positivity and size inclusivity is still a relatively new phenomenon, but Sturino has dedicated her life to unlearning all that beauty standard BS and uses her blog, Instagram, podcast, and non-toxic, solution-oriented beauty products to share the message that changed her life: Your body is not the problem.

With Body Talk, a guide-meets-workbook, Sturino is here to help you stop obsessing about your body issues, focus on self-love, and free up space in your brain for creative and productive energy. Complete with empowering affirmations, relatable anecdotes, and actionable takeaways, Body Talk encourages you to spend less time thinking about how you look and what you eat and more time discovering your inner fierceness.

Loved this!

I ordered the physical book too but I have been following Katie for years and really wanted to hear her read this. Worth hearing it straight from her. Katie’s message really resonates with me and it’s so important to change how I think and talk about my body especially so I don’t pass on these issues to my kiddo. Katie is funny but also has really tactical advice. She’s been through it and her detail accounts of how she has struggled with body perception let you now you aren’t alone.

A Powerful Read That Will Make You Laugh Out Loud

I bought both the audio book and hardcover of this title. The audio because I find Katie delightful and inspiring and the hardcover so I could easily refer back to it (not to mention the beautiful design!) Regardless of how you digest the content, this book is a must read for everyone - at every age. My generation was taught that your appearance was your self worth so it is significant progress to see a book address how to unlearn this toxic thinking and rebuild your relationship with your body. Katie is a visionary and not afraid to say what we all should have been saying for years. In short, I loved this book and by the end I felt like Katie was my friend and champion :)

this book is for everyone

And everyone should read it / listen to it. I wish this book had existed when I was a preteen - but the best time to plant a tree is 10 years ago, the second best time is today. Be kinder to yourself, be kinder to your loved ones - and wear the tshirt!

This should be required reading!

Just when I thought I couldn’t love Katie anymore she has written a book for me (and everyone) about a major struggle in my (and most people’s) life! I will be buying this book for all of my friends and family. I bought the hardcover and the audible just to hear Katie tell me that I am worthy!

Yay Katie!!!

I wish I had this book when I was in college. I am so glad I came upon Katie on Instagram and have her body positivity influence. This book really helped me reframe my thoughts towards my body.

Super fun and filled with good advice

I really enjoyed this and not just because Katie is one of my favorite people ever on Instagram. This was witty and lighthearted while still compassionate and warm. It was a super fun and short and I loved the audiobook version where she narrates. I thought she hit some great bullet points and this only made me like her more.

Not great.

This book could have been an hour podcast. Don’t know what I was expecting from a social influencer “writing” (if you could even call it that?) a book. I suppose I was expecting more depth and insight instead of a cheap grab for my money.
