Overview

The best non-diet book for those looking to embrace a positive and satisfying relationship with food.

If you're looking for diets that work, STOP RIGHT THERE. Dieting is hazardous to your health. Diets don't work and they won't work, and yo-yo dieting will make you fatter.

You can step off the destructive diet bandwagon and reclaim your self-esteem, positive body image and a happy, healthy life. These 60 inspiring lessons will give you the tools you need to change your relationship with food, your body and yourself.

This book can show you how to:

  • Never diet again and allow your weight to stabilize
  • Stop feeling guilty about eating the foods you love
  • Free up all that mental energy to be more productive and have more fun in life
  • Get in touch with physical hunger and learn to love your body
  • Stop stress eating, compulsive eating and emotional eating and instead practice mindful eating

Give up the vicious cycle and stop overeating.
