Learning to love yourself

In her upcoming biography, True You, Janet Jackson opens up about her struggles with food, body image, and relationships and how she’s worked through the hard times to find herself and be truly happy.

This book isn’t a tell-all, but a look into the mindset that led to Janet packing on the pounds and how she overcame to find happiness within. She talks about her struggles with dieting, self-confidence, and depression. Janet shares stories about being teased as a child by her older brothers, how she felt ugly while growing up, and how food was a comfort to her during some of the tumultuous times in her life.

True You features over 30 recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks from Janet’s personal chef, Chef Andre.
It has taken Janet most of her adult life to come to terms with who she is. True You illuminates the path Janet took to learning how to love herself and finally break free of the attitudes that brought her down.
Watch for an hour-long interview with Janet this Sunday, February 13th on Dateline NBC, 7pm EST.
