This proven program offers reassuring guidlines on:


Letting food become a source of pleasure rather than anxiety
Kicking the scale-watching the habit—forever!
Recognizing the difference between physical and emotional hungers

Distinguishing "forbidden foods" from those you truly want
Uncovering the conflicts that stand between your desire to lose weight and your urge to eat compulsively
Discovering other pleasures besides food

    Great guide for the educated overeater

    I am 15 years old and quite mentally/emotionally mature for my age. I began dieting about a year ago because I felt 'fat'. My dieting lead to an obsession about weight, and a loss of 20 lbs. Now I struggle every day with food. I think I was hoping this book would somehow CURE me, so initially I felt disapointed after completing all the exercises in the book, yet still bingeing at night. I've realized that I should have tried to better understand the disorder first before trying to help myself. So I recommend learning of the disorder and why you have it before buying this book. This is deffinetly more of a GUIDE than an actual book. I do highly recommend it to those who know all about the disorder and just need help getting through it.
