I didn't buy this because it was a diet book -- I bought it because I wanted to understand why I was unhappy with my body even though I'm at a healthy weight. This book gave me insight into how my emotion-fueled thoughts were being translated into body hatred, which is condoned by our society. I cringe now whenever I hear a woman criticize her body. You too can learn to approach food and clothing sizes with an entirely new perspective, and catch those negative thoughts before they become twisted into self-loathing.

An excellent book for those who simply can't diet anymore. Weight loss is possible with this program but by the time you get to your natural weight you won't care anymore. You;ll already be living as though you were perfectly beautiful. This book makes a lot of sense.

I have been overweight for most of my life; I have also studied and worked in the field of eating disorders for over a decade. I threw this book in the trash after I read it and even that did not make me feel better about the nonsense written in this book. I found the advice in this book to be nothing less than unconscionable! I could not believe what I was reading! I am shocked and appalled that the authors would actually tell readers that ALL food is equal whether it¿s a candy bar or a serving of vegetables! The authors advocate buying (or shall I say ¿hording¿) candy, cookies and ice cream, in preposterous amounts, based on the theory that if you have unlimited supply, you wont want it as much. This idea is not only ridiculous, but its misleading and certainly not the pathway to better health. The fact of truth is that we live in a country that has an astronomical obesity rate and its JUST NOT HEALTHY! I agree whole heartedly that women should NOT try to fit themselves into a particular mold based on the media¿s mandates. However, I don¿t think it¿s a healthy idea to ¿accept¿ oneself at their current weight if it poses a risk to your life! It¿s a ludicrous concept to think that all the obese people in the world should accept themselves at their current weight and fill their cabinets with cookies, cakes and ice cream, this concept will surely retard the progress of medical information our country has made regarding obesity! Our country is facing an epidemic with obesity. Telling women to abandon any efforts to lose weight and become healthy is a crime, self control is a good thing and it is what separates us from the animals! I believe in the concept of being your own loving, internal caregiver, but my belief is that a person¿s body is their ¿temple¿, if you truly want to become a personal caretaker for your mind and body, then you need not read books that encourage you to fill your precious body with garbage and processed foods that will kill you.
