Patterned after the old Farmer's Almanac, "Dr. Deah's Calmanac" is a 12 month interactive guide. While the Almanac helped readers cultivate healthy gardens and crops, the Calmanac cultivates a healthier lifestyle.

Dr. Deah Schwartz's "Dr. Deah's Calmanac: Your Interactive Monthly Guide for Cultivating a Positive Body Image"

This book really delivers, it is spot on. Dr. Deah writes with such pathos, humor, and empathy that you know that she is living this journey and wants to share this journey with you.

Written to be a year-long companion, "Dr. Deah's Calmanac" is a 12-chapter guide that provides readers with the predictable triggers of each month that may present challenges for those struggling with a negative body image or eating disorders. In addition, each chapter includes an example of how these situations can look in real life, PLUS two self-help directives that will proactively address the triggers.

The Calmanac is a program that can be started any month of the year. Its hands-on techniques are designed to replace anxieties associated with negative body image with CALMing self-acceptance. "Dr. Deah’s Calmanac" will guide you toward a positive body health approach to wellness.
