In You Are WHY You Eat, food becomes a digestible metaphor. If you are gorging and numbing yourself with food, are you doing the same thing in life? Instead of trying to please others all the time, what would happen if you listened to your inner voice? What if you could find a way to stop eating, stop working at a bad job, stop a bad relationship before you walk down the aisle—stop anything when you are full? Understanding WHY you eat can lead to real and lasting changeboth in your weight loss and all other areas of your life. You Are WHY You Eat teaches readers to take back control in their lives. Dr. Ramani takes an iconoclastic, brave, edgy, and witty approach to self-help. She teaches you to unearth that inner voice, and let it be heard. She turns all of your childhood teachings upside down and forces you to take responsibility for your choices in life. Through real-life anecdotes and exercises, she gives you the tools you need to live on your terms, not those of the stakeholders that surround you. It will help you trust yourself and act from the gut, while making that gut smaller at the same time. And in so doing, it will help people live lives that are braver, more authentic, and less riddled with regret. You can change your food attitude and change your life! [excerpt]"Start by asking yourself one simple, but significant question: Does your life look the way you want it to look? Sadly, most of us are living in a script written by other people, and as a result, many of us learned long ago to stop trusting our own instincts. If we can't listen to our bodies and do something as simple as push away a plate of food when we are full, how can we listen to ourselves when it comes to the rest of our lives?"

Great book. Not just about eating. More about life and making the right choices in all areas of your life like work, love, and family. Also shows you how to be aware when you are eating and to stop when you are full. There's no reason to clean your plate. Very helpful!
Really enjoyed this book. It addresses underlying reasons why one overeats. Really hit home for me.
