Overview

Waterhouse, a bestselling author & nutritionist, has conducted groundbreaking research that shows that chocolate is the number-one craved food among women. And she has found that sensibly indulging your craving for chocolate or any other food is better than depriving yourself. Thats because contrary to popular belief, food cravings are not a problem to be treated. When you carefully give in to cravings, you can actually improve your mood, lift your spirits &, in the long run, develop sensible eating patterns. She teaches the food-mood connection that helps women lose weight, boost energy, & maximize mood-elevating brain chemicals.

Food cravings are a result of brain chemistry rather than appetite--and in the basic difference between genders. Now, the bestselling author of Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell offers a sound, five-week, five-point plan that shows women how to create a sensible eating regimen which anticipates and incorporates cravings for maximum mood management.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Waterhouse (Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell) claims that food cravings are natural and healthy. Unfortunately, cravings for chocolate and other sweets can derail the best of traditional diet plans. Still, Waterhouse believes her five-week, five-point nutrition plan for mind and body will engage a woman's instinctive food needs, her positive moods and her healthy body. Five small meals a day, she advises, are better than three larger ones because they satisfy one's hunger. Chocolate and sugar are permissible in moderation, as is fat. The author believes that even though a woman wants to lose weight, she need not reject sweets as ``forbidden,'' so long as her diet takes in the necessary fruits, grains and vegetables. She encourages self-indulgence but condemns overindulgence. And Waterhouse promotes exercise as a factor crucial to success in maintaining or losing weight. Although many diet-wary readers may want to consider her diet advice, the more skeptical will find it crass that she advertises her workshop and speaking services here. A glossary and reference section are included. (Jan.)
Library Journal
Now that she's given hungry women some best-selling advice on Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell, Waterhouse focuses on the one food that causes the most trouble: chocolate.
Ilene Cooper
Waterhouse, who has previously written on fat and females in "Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell" 1993, now delves into the issue of women's food cravings. According to Waterhouse, a nutritionist and dietitian, cravings are natural to women and, in fact, are what get those endomorphins pleasurable brain chemicals moving in the right direction. So when a premenstrual woman craves chocolate, it's really the brain's way of saying, "Give me something that's gonna make me feel better." Chocolate, with its high percentage of fat and sugar, is eminently suitable for the job. But society dictates that women should be thin, not feeding their faces with bonbons, so women have got a major conflict going. Waterhouse's solution, which she manages to draw out through many, many pages, is to eat a little bit of what you crave, satisfy your brain, stabilize your moods, and subvert society. That seems simple enough, but it's not a whole book, so in addition readers get the five-week, five-point Optimal Nutrition Plan. Publicity may drive patron interest for this one; thumbs up to the premise, thumbs down to the belabored plan.
