Trigger Warnings: Depression, Bulimia, Body Dysmorphia, Eating Disorders, Fat Shaming

Eat, and Love Yourself is about a young woman, Mindy, who has an eating disorder. One day she finds a special chocolate bar that claims it will allow her to relive times of her youth. As she slowly eats the candy bar, she goes back in time and watches as she grows up struggling with the crutch she has on food.

I'm going to start off and say, to read this book, please make sure you're in the right headspace for it. I made sure to put as many trigger warnings as I could on the review for anyone reading because I know how it goes. As someone who has had a weird relationship with food, this book hits it. It shows Mindy going back in time and seeing these moments when she begins to dig herself a hole and begins the spiral downward. She knows she needs help but first, she's got to see herself for who she truly is. By the end of the story, I was so excited to see her wings open so she could fly high.

The story is well written, topped with vibrant artwork with beautiful color pallets. It will make those who feel left in the shadows, seen. ( )

This was good.

There’s a slight touch of magical realism because a chocolate bar gives Mindy the ability to relive/revisit her past and see where her unhealthy relationship with food began. It also shows how offhanded remarks from friends and family (people who actually/are supposed to love you) can affect someone for a long time. I also wanna give this book a shout out for avoiding shots of vomit, despite focusing on eating disorders/purging. I don’t think I’ve emetophobia or anything, but that was just a pleasant surprise.

Eat, and Love Yourself is a book tackling body dysmorphia, bulimia, and lack of feelings of self worth. Mindy eats away her feelings, then finds herself feeling disgusting, and the cycle continues. She does not notice that her friends and the people she meets think she is perfect the way she is. Mindy purchases diet foods and the magazines with airbrushed models and limits her worth based on her appearance in her mind. One evening, she goes out to grab a snack. Mindy buys a chocolate bar and some sort of magic happens as with each square she visits a moment in her past. Will realizing what brought her to this point help her heal? Will Mindy learn to love herself? Will she allow others to love her? Important topic and read in graphic novel format. YA read ( )

Thank you Netgalley and BOOM! Studios for the ARC.

Well, I didn't need my heart anyway.
This story will impact so many people and I'm really grateful to have read this.

Mindy is a 27 year old girl struggling with an eating disorder and body dysmorphia. I don't suffer from neither things so my voice comes just from an outside point of view, but I had experiences with not loving my body, with feeling like nobody would ever love it and accept it, so it totally touched my heart. I can say the author touched these themes with extreme caution and realism.
The struggle of accepting themselves, of even realizing there's something wrong, loving our bodies and moving on from the pain of the past.

HUGE HUGE trigger warning for eating disorder, fat-shaming, bulimia, anorexia, body dysmorphia. If any of these things deeply affect you be cautious. It's extremely graphic and deep into these topics so if it's something that you can't read about, I absolutely advise you to not pick this one up. ( )

A depressed twentysomething woman struggling with body dysmorphic disorder eats pieces from a magic chocolate bar and revisits her past. Except for the small fantasy element, it's a pretty by-the-numbers story of finding a way to love yourself. Not bad, but not really remarkable in story or art.

An aside: Edward Gauvin translates a lot of books that I rate 2- or 3-stars. Fifteen in just the last couple years, of which eleven were 2-stars or less. Is he the common denominator holding back these works? Or am I just that much of a Francophobe? ( )
