Very practical book about loving yourself

I think, the main reason people overeat is - they feel bad about themselves, they feel not good enough, and they hate themselves - body, mind and everything. This book beautifully adresses these issues, and helps you to learn again what a lot of people forgot - WE ARE GOOD JUST AS WE ARE. We knew that, when we were born(babies are not ashamed of themselves), but then this amazing knowing got slowly socialized out of us. Basically this book is about loving yourself and trusting your body to make beautiful choices for you. And it does! I don't weigh myself ( scale is just another form of rigid control and I decided to let go of numbers and enjoy eating and life in general), but I know I lost weight, because I can get into size smaller pants(it is about 6 weeks since I trust my body to make food choices- be it more one day or less the other, be it healthy or not so healthy foods.) Now, I noticed, my body doesn't need to eat the whole chocolate - couple bites satisfies it more than the whole before. Nice side effect - I started enjoying exercise again. Moving is so much fun, when you forget the part, that you MUST move. If you want to be slim naturally and resistance free(enjoy temptations instead of resisting them, and they will loose power), definetely check out this book.


It seems to make so much sense. It's about listening to your body and doing what it tells you to do.... It is the first book that I've read that combines both the spiritual and physical aspects of overeating. I have read many books on this subject and none but this one have left me with the feeling of "this is really going to work". I am relieved and excited to live my new life as a person free from overeating, bingeing and bulimia!!

Very helpful book after two readings

This book does a great job of breaking down the thought processes of eating and overeating. It was only moderately helpful to me after the first reading. Then a year later I read "The Sedona Method" by Hale Dwoskin, then came back to this book and reread it. Now it *really* works. I hope others will benefit as much as I did. Good luck.

Rethinking How You Eat and What You REALLY Want to Eat

I bought this book on a whim, because i no longer do diets. I was looking for a new way to think about my body, having finally come to terms that i am heavy, my mom was heavy, i better get used to this body.I started reading this book a year ago, and read only half way through it. I put a bookmark in the book, and said to myself, ok, when i have time, I'll go back and finish the book.About a month later, I started thinking about what I had read, that judging what I put in my mouth doesn't work, that my body is craving things but communication with the brain isn't working because of all the ideas i have about food. And i decided to give it a short try. What the hell, if I failed, I would just gain a few more pounds, and if I succeeded, I would lose pounds.I followed the weird-sounding advice in the book. I stopped judging food as good or bad. I ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. I bought whatever I wanted at the grocery store. I went out of my way to satisfy my hungers. After a while, I got tired of all of the potatoe chips and chocolate ice cream, and said, okay, I am ready to figure out what I am after when I am foraging. Then I realized i was looking for salty or crisp or crunchy. And it was then that I was able to take control of my food intake. Because I started to realize what I was looking for.Dieting doesn't work because it doesn't teach you to nourish your needs. This book teaches you how to identify what you need, if it's love, or hugs or nourishment, or if it's really food. I am still following this book a year later, and finally ready to pick it back up and re-read the first half. I quit smoking in December, a pack and a half a day, and gained about ten pounds. In the last six months I have not only lost those pounds, but another two or three.In the interim I have also been diagnosed with a hiatal hernia, reflux (severe) and a misshaped duadenum. I have also identified that I have trouble swallowing (it's painful). I always knew I had TMJ. If I had not been following this book, I hate to think what would have happened to me in trying to treat my hiatal hernia and reflux. Since I was already rethinking eating, I was able to take this medical information and integrate it into what I had already found out about my "food trip".Am I still too heavy? Yes. Am I eating less as a result of this book? Yes. Am I more picky about what goes into my mouth? Yes. Do I starve myself? No. Do I feel undernourished. No. Have I lost weight? Yes. Was it overnight? No. (But then, I didn't gain it overnight either.)This book is a hands-down winner.
