Empowering women and providing an alternative to the diet industry's approach, this guide teaches readers how to get off the dieting treadmill and feel normal and in control around food
A radically new approach to weight loss, this book is a practical, honest answer to the common methods used to combat overeating, which either encourage women to rely on willpower alone, or legitimise overeating by providing lists of "free foods" on which women are actively encouraged to binge. Instead, this guide draws on the authors' own experiences as overweight and unhappy overeaters and their 10 years of work with thousands of failed dieters to help readers explore and understand why they overeat and how to stop.
There are no plans or menus, but rather a philosophy of learning to listen to one's body. It offers women a practical, sustainable approach to stopping overeating and achieving a balanced and healthy relationship with food.
