Overview

Nice Girls Finish Fat: Put Yourself First and Change Your Eating Forever by Karen R. Koenig

From a therapist and expert in emotional eating, the first book to explore the link between weight gain and women who do too much, complete with proven techniques for dropping pounds.

Many women put too much on their plates, both literally and figuratively. In Nice Girls Finish Fat, psychotherapist Karen R. Koenig explains the link between the two and gives overweight women detailed advice on how to lose their extra baggage—both emotional and physical—by becoming more assertive in every aspect of life. For the millions of overweight women in America, diet and exercise just aren’t cutting it. That’s because many of these women have emotional issues buried deep beneath those stubborn pounds, issues that must be dealt with first if weight loss plans are to succeed. In this illuminating book, based on decades of professional experience, Karen Koenig offers on-the-page psychotherapy to help readers attack the roots of their food problems. With her engaging personal style, she teaches women about the biological connections between repressed emotions and eating, revealing the ways many women use food to stuff their anger, control their aggression, and assuage their feelings of guilt—all in the pursuit of being “nice.” Giving “good girls” permission to love themselves first, Koenig offers thought-provoking quizzes and questions to help readers identify and overcome the habits that have been holding them back. Empowering readers to gain the confidence they need to lose weight, Nice Girls Finish Fat not only shows women how to stop obsessing about food and develop healthy eating habits, it teaches readers skills to improve every aspect of their lives.

This is a wonderful book that details the disfunctional beliefs so many of us "NICE" girls have about ourselves and how it relates to our every day life, and how we see ourselves. It suggests positive ways to make changes that will improve the quality of your life in regards to how you feel about yourself as well as how you interact with others. Sadly, I didn't fully grasp where being nice vs being overweight really connected. I realize a lot of people over eat when angry or depressed or a hundred other reasons, but I don't necessarely agree that changing our "nice" personality will change our behaviours towards food and over eating. The book is thought provoking and many may find it extremely helpful, but I personally found it a little too clinical for my tastes. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best, I'd rate this book a 6.5.

This book offered insight and humor to a subject that can be a big struggle. This is a book I have come back to and discovered even more about myself than I did the first time I read it. It is a must read for anyone struggling with emotional eating.
