Are you tired of dieting?
Have you tried and failed to lose weight?
Maybe a diet worked for you at first, but then you just put all that weight back on again?
Losing weight isn’t easy – otherwise, why would overweight people continue to put up with prejudice, disapproval and feelings of guilt and shame?
In fact, almost one in four adults in England is classified as obese.
There is no genetic explanation why some people are unable to regulate their food intake. Research indicates that the answer may lie in our emotional relationship with food.
It may not be real hunger that pushes us to reach for second helpings, but actually a response to an emotional need elsewhere, which is nothing to do with food.
This book will offer you 10 questions to explore, think about and answer as honestly as possible. The answers will help you find out what your relationship with food really is.
You will think about why you want to go on a diet now and how thin do you want to be.
We will explore your dieting history.
You will discover what your weight means to you. You will visualize yourself being thin and see how you feel about it.
We will discuss the role food played in your family– what messages did you get from your parents about eating or not eating? What cultural attitudes to food were predominant? How were overweight people regarded?
As a result, you will learn to start listening to your body, to recognize your emotional needs and find other ways of fulfilling them, rather than overeating.
Instead of fighting your body, you will begin to live in harmony with it, and to enjoy your newfound energy and drive.
