Overview

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 change--both 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 a fresh, brave, and edgy 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! [

From the Publisher
"Whether you are looking to change your dress size, your love life, take on your dreams, or just figure out how to connect back to yourself again so you can live a healthy, fulfilled, and authentic life, Ramani's book will take you there." –Vanessa Williams, Actress "I recommend You Are Why You Eat to anyone who eats and anyone who wants to be happy. I really liked how Dr. Ramani Durvasula shared her own stories from her life about weight gain and love loss. In a very entertaining way, she explains how she took control of her life, lost weight and found love." —Cheryl Hines"You Are WHY You Eat is a groundbreaking book that will help people take control of their lives and more importantly live a life that is authentic. By connecting readers to their emotions and learning to find an authentic self, Dr Ramani tackles the most important factors that create our issues around food. She reveals that many of our problems begin with food and our desire to please others. Once we can master the food triggers and listen to ourselves we can also learn to self-regulate in other areas of our lives. A brilliant new look at living an authentic life. Read this book and change your life!" —Dr. Drew Pinsky "Dr. Ramani is really onto something with her philosophy, 'The Promise of One.' It's a simple approach to changing your life one moment at a time . . . and it can work!"—Jeff Probst"Dr. Ramani Durvasula provides an insightful look into what causes eating problems for many women today, and offers a practical step-by-step guide for how to gain control of why you eat and ultimately who you are. This book can change the way you eat and the way you live." —Fary M. Cachelin, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, UNC Charlotte"We have long known that health and well-being are directed by physical, emotional, and social conditions. This multifaceted and intelligent understanding to eating and weight loss is what Dr. Ramani keenly investigates in her book You Are WHY You Eat. Dr. Ramani provides astute insights and practical suggestions that inform all of us on how we must listen to our bodies, attend to our emotions, and be aware of our social environments if each of us is to effectively manage what we eat and control weight in a manner that attends to whole of who we each are. This book draws on state of the art scientific knowledge from the behavioral and health sciences and translates this knowledge into a practical and helpful suggestions and strategies." —Perry N. Halkitis, Ph.D., Professor of Applied Psychology, Public Health, and Medicine, New York University

    Check it out!

    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!
