Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
It's time to stop the chronic yo-yo dieting and start listening to your body! By tuning in to your body's needs and focusing your energy on nourishing rather than depriving yourself, lasting weight loss can be within your reach. The weight will come off naturally, leaving you feeling healthy and satisfied.
From the Publisher
"Both sound and supportive...The nurturing volume will find an eager audience in all those who are tired of living in the land of forbidden foods and the latest greatest diet fad."—Publishers Weekly
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Nutrition therapists Tribole and Resch suggest that the best way for dieters to finally make peace with food and body image is to emulate the natural, intuitive eating habits of very young children. The advice culled from this trip down memory lane is both sound and supportive. Key suggestions include rejecting a diet mentality (often based on deprivation and denial); eating only when hungry; stopping when full; and learning to separate emotional from physical needs. No menus or food plans to follow here; the authors encourage readers to eat anything they want, as long as they pay attention to the tenets of feeling true hunger and true satisfaction. Ultimately, the authors insist, old habits subside and body and mind work together to achieve the ``natural healthy weight.'' Basic nutrition concerns are addressed late in the volume, presumably after readers have begun to accept this seemingly unorthodox approach. This nurturing volume will find an eager audience in all those who are tired of living in the land of forbidden foods and the latest greatest diet fad. (May)

    Never diet again!

    Excellent book. Instead of teaching you to not eat certain foods, it teaches you to eat all foods but in moderation. Once these lifestyle changes are incorporated into your everyday living, you will notice a difference in the way you look and feel.

    Regardless of your weight, an excellent book worth its weight in gold!

    This book is wonderful, regardless of your food issues. Whether you're overweight or underweight, comfort eater, or bulemic, this book is about treating yourself well and learning to appreciate food. I can't recommend this book enough, and ask my friends, I can't stop talking about it. I've even purchased copies for friends and family that I think will appreciate it themselves.

    At last!

    A book that FINALLY gives some insight into what our minds are doing to our bodies. I am a 74 year old woman who was an obese teenager, but managed to lose that weight, However, through all the rest of my life I struggled with off-again-on-again dieting. At last I can relax.

    Empowering

    This book is essential to those who have problems with dieting and those who want to simply improve their eating style. I would (and have) recommend this book to as many people as I can. Everything they talk about in the book is real and very to the point. They are very honest and very articulate. This book is very encouraging to me, and empowers me to find the peace I need with food.
