Overview

YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN STOP BINGE EATING (OR FEELING OUT OF CONTROL WITH FOOD) AND BE THIN!

You are about to finally uncover the single reason why you’ve been experiencing such an uphill battle with food and your weight. And far more importantly, I am going to teach you the skills you need to win the food fight once and for all—without dieting.

If you’re looking for a real, proven step-by-step solution to stop overeating and binge eating for good—so you can finally get thin and get on with your amazing life—then this book is for you.

Is food your best friend—and your worst enemy? Are you stuck in a relentless tug-of-war between wanting (desperately) to lose weight, and the out-of-control urge to eat?

Does your firm morning resolve to “be good” with food consistently crumble into a night of takeout on the couch, watching TV with Ben & Jerry. Do you love food, but at the same time, part of you hates it with a passion, and would be perfectly happy if you never ate again—if it just meant you could finally be thin?

Let me come right out and say it. It’s not you. There are clear-cut, solvable reasons why your eating currently feels frustrating and at times painfully out of control. You’ve simply been trying to solve the problem (excess weight and overeating) with a solution (dieting and exercise) that does nothing to resolve the real reasons you feel so out of control with food.

The problem is not your lack of nutritional knowledge. Knowing how many calories (or carbs!) are in a thick fudgy brownie does absolutely nothing to equip you with the skills to stop binge eating it after a long hard day at work.

Overeating and binge eating are learned behavioral patterns that can be eradicated once you learn a few simple actionable psychological skills.

But not the type of “fluff psychology” you find in most emotional eating books that advise you to “take a walk”, “read a book” or “take warm bath” when you feel the urge to overeat. Really? That advice is absolutely useless. (And maddening!) As if when you’re in that pre-binge frenzy, parked outside the minimart tearing into a bag of chips and a box of donuts, you’re going to hear that advice and say, “Wow, why didn’t I think of that? I’ll put down these salty grease glistening chips and thick chocolate frosted donuts and head home to read Pride and Prejudice.” Not so much.

The solution to binge eating and overeating is found in clear-cut research based learnable skills that prevent and eliminate overeating on the spot. The skills (you’ll be happy to know) do not include deprivation or willpower. Since willpower and deprivation don’t actually work. I mean, if they did work to yield lasting weight loss we wouldn’t be having this conversation right now. Right?


 Find out exactly why your best weight loss efforts have failed in the past—and more importantly, exactly what you can do to change it. Today.
 Learn how to eliminate the single behavior that 70 years of scientific research proves causes overeating, binge eating, and feeling out of control with food
 Uncover the secret to being able to keep any food in your house—without it calling your name
 Discover the two keys that make it a cinch to stop eating any food when you’ve had enough (even chocolate cake or a cheeseburger!)
Get ready. This book will change your life.

“How to Have your Cake and Your Skinny Jeans Too” is Josie at her best. Sharing her remarkable insights, her warm disarming signature wit, and research-based Hunger Directed Eating techniques that result in quick and lasting change.

    Would give this six stars!

    I have read 15 books outlining this same method to weight loss EXACTLY. This one is different in that the extra tips make it accessible. It somehow transfers confidence to the reader, too. This is the book that caused me to "get" it. After a lifetime (I'm 43) of money, time, and anguish spent on the diet and fitness industry, this little Kindle book costs less than 10 bucks, took two days to read, and gave me a world of hope. It may very well be the last 10 bucks I spend toward weight loss. Wow.

    A bit about my background: I'm a 21 y/o girl who's been on a crazy dieting roller coaster (masquerading as an on and off health kick) for years! I was going INSANE! Now I finally feel safe around PB! Hallelujah!

    OH MY GOODNESS, WHAT CAN I SAY? THIS IS THE BOOK! THIS IS THE ON

    OH MY GOODNESS, WHAT CAN I SAY? THIS IS THE BOOK! THIS IS THE ONE! I would give this twenty stars if I could!!!!

    I've read COUNTLESS diet books, and how to not diet books in my never ending search for THE ANSWER. You know, the miracle cure? Well this is it people! Buy this book and never look back! I will NEVER diet again. What a relief, I could almost cry. I certainly cried with laughter throughout the book, the author has a way of exposing our dieters truths with such humour and aplomb, it makes you realise how ridiculous your "diet logic" is and she reveals in a very clear (and evidence supported) manner how thin people stay thin.

    his is the best, best, best book I have ever read on the subject, and I'm now going to tuck into an egg mayo (full fat) baguette, with a side of crisps (and not the baked variety either) without the slightest bit of guilt. And when I'm no longer hungry, I'll just stop eating and throw the rest of it away (for what it cost me, it hardly broke the bank you know?) knowing that I'm responsible for detecting how hungry I actually am and how much I need to eat before I'm satisfied! Josie Spinardi, you are the best thing that's ever happened to dieters, or anyone looking to lose weight.My advice? Don't bother reading any other book on diets or non diets: JUST READ THIS!!!! I don't often (if ever) review books on amazon because I read so many books I get jaded, well let me tell you, I was never going to be too jaded to read this one!

    I am a seasoned yo-yo dieter of 20 years and an avid reader of all kinds of weight loss books. I didn't realise quite how much this mentality had negatively impacted on my relationship with food - now I know exactly how much! I have never written a book review before in my life but felt so strongly about this one that I just had to share - it is a breath of fresh air and I feel like I now have hope; hope to get off this insane diet merry-go-round for good!




    Josie's style is warm and humerous and there are countless times throughout the book that I felt myself nodding along or getting emotional as it felt as if it had been written just for me. She explains that this book is written exclusively to deal with the problems that occur from the 'diet mentality.' There is a second book (that she is currently writing) to deal with emotional eating, which is an entirely different creature. I await the next edition eagerly and shall certainly be buying it when it is released.




    If you, like me, was ground down and jaded by reading countless diet books searching for 'the one' I urge you to give it a try, I doubt you will be disappointed - I certainly wasn't!!

    For Some Reason this got my attention...and I am doing it.

    I think its good advice for a binge eater if you can drop your guard and listen to your body for once. I am giving it a try and I have not binged since the middle of the book so its a start. I feel the book could have been shortened up a little it seemed a little repetitive in some spots, but still if you binge eat it may be the light at the end of the tunnel for you.
