Format: Paperback
For 10 years I was lost in the world of my eating disorder and then in 1988, I met Viola Fodor, a psychotherapist. She spoke to me about many things, such as true self, inner wisdom, meaning in life. What she told me helped me to turn my life around and heal completely from my eating problem. She's now encapsulated the essence of her teachings in this remarkable book, which doesn't talk about acting as if you're okay or positive affirmations. No, this book deals with the process of real profound change. The kind that happens from the inside out. The kind that leads you to your true self. It tells you how to tap this essential process (and we all have this capacity) so it stays with you forever, guiding you through the most difficult challenges in your life, including an eating problem.

I have read the first edition of this remarkable book by Viola Fodor. I highly recommend it to all those who wish to learn more about themselves and how to deal with their inner feelings. Having an eating disorders is not the only reason to seek out this book. All of us can be guided by it. I look forward to seeing the next edition.

A unique contribution to eating disorders literature 4 Dec. 1997

Glad I read it! 18 Jun. 2013
By RenownedReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not a new book, but the information in it is very helpful, and I feel it is still very timely for anyone dealing with eating issues. Ms. Fodor gives the reader a lot to think about, and I found her point of view very helpful. She presented some ideas and insights that I would not have thought of on my own, and that was worth the price of the book to me. I'd recommend this to anyone who is struggling with eating/food issues.

Good book but repetitive 29 April 2013
By ChrissyLovesSnacks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found it very comforting to read this book. It was extremely repetitive and a bit irritating at times but overall I really liked how the book addressed the underlying issues related to self-hate and self-destructive behaviors. I still cannot sit quietly with myself but I am working on it. I think I'll read the book again actually!
