    Effective, life changing, solid insights into why we don't lose weight

    I have a lot of experience in both nutrition and in weight loss approaches - and Shrink Yourself is something different and something effective. There is an online program that you may also want to try.

    The idea in this book is that it is feelings of powerlessness that trigger emotional eating episodes, which in turn keep us overweight.

    With excellent technique, this SY method leads a participant into the middle of emotional eating episodes - and then it gets interesting. By studying that 'innocent' moment where the hand reaches for food in some detail - a doorway into an inner exploration is opened.

    The technique is not for the casual explorer! It takes commitment and courage to do this study, and to go against and interrupt years of habit 'in the moment'

    But - if you are finished with yo-yo approaches to diets and years of failed efforts - this method has a lot to offer.

    FINALLY A BOOK THAT DELIVERS!

    This book is amazing. I was an emotional eater for 10 years plus and this book stopped it dead in its tracks. It focuses on WHY we emotional eat. It gets right into your head, takes the disorder by the neck and disassembles it before your eyes. I LOVE this book and am the happiest I have ever been. I read this book a month ago and have lost 7 pounds so far and counting. Thank God for this book!

    Loved this book

    I have struggled with emotional eating for years and this book has been the best 'therapy' for my problems. I am returning to it again and again and I have learned many coping strategies to handle stress in more positive ways. Excellent advice - this book will REALLY HELP YOU!!

    Buy This Book-

    I've been an emotional eater for 3 decades and used countless self help books and diets to no avail. Roger Gould cracked the code. You will conquer your battle with food. He is a genius and you won't regret a single penny spent on the book or a second reading it.

    Very Highly Recommended

    As someone who has gone to counseling for years for disordered eating, I found this book extremely informative and right on the money. It is a great resource to keep yourself headed I the right direction, as well as a great manual to getting your thoughts and emotions back on track.

    It can work. Give it a chance.

    Great self help book. Could related to all the issues & solutions. To follow through with the plan, you have to be willing to journal a lot. Have recommended it to a few friends already.

    This book is amazing! It spoke to me when no other book could...

    This book is amazing! It spoke to me when no other book could... Don’t get me wrong, I am still working through two decades of overeating; two decades of feeling what Roger Gould calls powerless. But with the help of this book, it will happen, I will wake up one day soon and the urge to overeat will be gone. You have to read this book... it has opened my eyes and I know it will open yours.
