Overview

By age ten, statistics show that 80% of American girls are dieting and 60% have a fear of gaining weight. Debra Waterhouse seeks to understand the source of the rampant self-destructive attitudes that females in our society have about their bodies and about food.

Like Mother, Like Daughter reveals that these negative attitudes may be transmitted from generation to generation as mothers - consciously or unconsciously - convey to their daughters their unhealthy eating habits and obsessions with dieting. It also tells us how women can detect their mother's influence, how they can break out of this destructive cycle, and how they can pass on to their own children healthier behaviors and attitudes.

By age 10, 80% of American girls are dieting. Here's how mothers can help break this destructive cycle. The author is a renowned nutritionist and the author of the bestselling Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell. 2 cassettes.

    It helped me.

    Although I wouldn't call this audio 'groundbreaking,' I enjoyed it. The information was similar to the information in Geneen Roth's 'Feeding the Hungry Heart.' I got the impression from the tape that if you exercise and listen to your body and eat what it tells you, you'll have a good weight. Depending on how broad you interpret 'good weight,' this might not be true. I think it would be good for Ms. Waterhouse to read 'The Art and Science of Rational Eating,' by Albert Ellis, et al, which explains that sometimes our body build is hereditary and if we eat listening only to our bodies, we may get a body that is primarily designed to withstand winters without food, not for today's standards of health. Ms. Waterhouse suggested getting rid of the scale. I couldn't bring myself to do that totally, but I've made a goal for myself of only weighing myself once a month. (I'm going to give myself a reward if I meet my goal.)

    Building a positive relationship with food

    This book was recommended to me by a public health dietician who gave a presentation to parents of young children. Along with the usual worries about how and what a young child is eating, I did not want to pass my bad eating habits on to my daughter. This book gave very good pointers about how to avoid continuing the cycle. A major point the author made is that the mother has to change how she views eating, dieting, and body shape because young girls will observe all of this and are starting to worry about it even earlier than we did. The book has plenty of facts and figures and lays a good foundation for a healthy relationship with food.
