    A Different Kind of Weight Loss Book

    A great book for anyone who has ever suffered through the deprivation of a diet, only to gain the weight back (and more!). Explains how to develop normal eating habits, and gives realistic advice on exercise. Having just had a baby, this book served as a great reminder to me that I don't need to starve myself to get back to my normal weight. It gives advice on how to follow our bodies natural cues. I highly recommend it.

    New phenomena of hope for persons living with eating problems

    While reading fed-up, I felt the anecdotes were human. I also had similiar experiences with my obsession to be thin. Fed-up is the first book I've read that has really helped me to look within and seek the real reason why I binge so often during stressful times. I began following Dr. Wendy's ten-step, no diet fitness plan 2 weeks ago and have lost 3.5lbs. I really think this time will be different from all the other diets I've tried because this book is not about want to eat or not to eat, rather than changing what lies within the human soul. Thank-you Dr. Oliver:)

    Not to be missed!

    I had the good fortune of pre-viewing Fed Up!, and it's a life saver! Though doctors and nutritionist claim that we don't need to diet to lose weight, we all know that their comments are quickly followed by the admonition to simply 'Change your eating habits. Eat healthily!' If we could do that, we wouldn't need their help in the first place! Author Wendy Oliver-Pyatt dares to call even such seemingly innocuous advice what it, in fact, is: a diet. And she dares to suggest what chronic dieters like myself wish we could believe: dieting doesn't work (despite the fact that a million-dollar industry wants us to believe otherwise). Fed Up! takes both a compassionate and logical look at the endless struggles faced by us dieters and overeaters. Because Dr. Oliver-Pyatt is a physician, she is able to offer concrete evidence to prove that dieting not only doesn't work, but it actually backfires, causing people to actually gain weight. As a former dieter herself, she empathizes with our pain and gently leads us toward the solution. We can believe her because we know she has traveled the same road. She shares her own heart-wrenching struggles, as well as those of many others she has worked with. For those of us battling with food and/or weight issues, this book is a must-read. I felt, perhaps for the first time, as though I had been freed from dieters' prison. I am learning to love myself as I am, while also learning how to achieve a healthy, attractive body. I am also learning to make peace with food. And best of all -- I get to eat! I cannot recommend Fed Up! highly enough!
