What People Are Saying

Debra Waterhouse
Don’t Diet, Live-It! contains insight, compassion and guidance to help women of all ages on their journeys to establish a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. A must read!
— (Debra Waterhouse, MPH, RD, author of Like Mother, Like Daughter)
Eric Schoeck
Having reviewed a lot of books like this one, Don’t Diet, Live-It! is one of the clearest, most practical and useful books I’ve ever seen.
— (Eric Schoeck,radio interviewer, author and events coordinator)
Ann Whittington
A terrain that was once dim, murky, and full of pitfalls is mapped out and well lit in this courageous book. Written as a combination workbook and journal, each chapter makes distinctions that are useful in moving toward peace with one’s body.

The heart of this compassionate journey is in listening to and trusting in oneself, knowing when you are hungry, knowing what you are hungry for, and knowing how to respond to those hungers.

I use this book in my clincial work. I find that it encourages a deeper dialogue, offers concrete ways of finding inner solutions for inner problems, and helps clients develop, as the authors say, “full lives not full stomachs.”
— Ann Whittington, MFCC

Carol Sun
Participating in the exercises is like attending an in-depth workshop. The true-to-life experiences and insights offered are extremely valuable and apply to all areas of life. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to delve deep within and remove blockages to self acceptance. With this self-help book the reader could easily achieve the goals outlined and have more compassion with themselves regarding their food/body issues.
— Carol Sun, MFCC

    This book has helped me overcome my bulimia

    I received this book while I was in a mental health treatment center as part of my treatment. The title was dorky so it took alot to get me to pick it up, but when I did I was not sorry. In just the introduction alone I found the description of my disordered thoughts and as I read on I found the sources to my bulimic tendencies that tortured me. Im not done with it yet, but every time I read a chapter and fill in the journal I gain a greater understanding of my obsession with food. I recommend this book to anyone, any age, who has ever been concerned with their weight, whether they are terminally ill or just dieting.
