Book Description

25 Dec 2003

A wonderful book from Doreen Virtue that will truly help you break the damaging connection between emotional pain and overeating!

As a result of many years of therapeutic work with hundreds of clients, Dr. Virtue came to understand how various degrees of psychological and physical abuse caused her clients to turn to food for comfort, security, and even self-punishment. Although many were convinced that once they lost their excess weight, their pain would cease to exist, just the opposite was actually true: First they had to lose their pain, then their weight would normalise. This book is long overdue and will help thousands of people release their pounds of pain!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 22 May 2009
Format:Paperback
This is THE most amazing book I have ever red, when it comes to losing weight.
For years I've had weight problems, and I had come to the point where I was sick and tired of all those different diets. Yes they work for a bit, but then it's back to old habbits, and here we go again.
Finally after I red this book, I know why I've been eating, and witch emotions have been hidden beneath all of these pounds.
Suddenly I'm listening to my body's signals, which I have never done before, my hunger is not there any more, I feel content inside myself. and it's such a huge relief, and the best part is that I'm losing my pounds.
Every body who has a weight issue and who really is ready to get to the core, because there is no point if you are not ready to go deep inside yourself, should get this book, and open up, get rid of all these ghosts which is hiding inside our pounds, and be FREE.

4.0 out of 5 stars This book helps to lessen the pain 29 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback
To an extent I believe everyone is an abuse survivor. This world is crazy.

I only give this book 4 instead of 5 because i tend to undereat rather than overeat. overall i found this the book interesting to read, honest and helpful.

you may find the stories in the book helpful even though the stories and examples are in graphic detail. some readers may find the stories disturbing. some may even resonate with them.

Doreen makes it quite clear throughout her book that everything that has happened to you at that time WAS NOT your fault. (innocent, irresponsible, naive little child)

i have read and re read this book countless times as a reminder to stop living life as a victim. doreens does give solutions which are practical and easy to follow.
she also gives her own examples of abuse that she endured as a young 20 something housewife.

to help "lose the pounds of pain" she give examples of things for you to do such as cardiovascular exercise and also counselling/therapy and the use of affirmations written and audio (audio are more powerful when recorded in our own voices (it is very effective on our own sub consciousness)

i think that this book is an essential collection to any abuse survivor and that the healing process is an on going experience with no time limit.

expect many emotions and locked memories to surface from your subconscious mind but if you continue this book will help you and you'll experience the end result of feeling; peace of mind, self forgiveness and weight loss and body relaxation (ease of tense muscles, fists, clenched jaws etc)

i believe theses are well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is so me! 15 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am halfway through this at the moment and don't want to put it down.I found myself reading this thinking "Gosh,this is so me".I am always thinking i am not an overeater,i am an undereater.This book makes you look at yourself and shows you the patterns you tend to ignore.It opens your eyes up to emotional abuse from your upbringing that you class as "normal".You don't feel you were abused but when it's pointed out to you,realisation hits.I was astonished when Doreen Virtue says if you have parents who drank a lot of alcohol,you're probably a sugar and carb fiend.Hands up!That's me.She tells you not to lay blame ,just leave it lying there and move on.You can't change the past but you can change the future,your future.Very inspirational.

I thought this was a great book by Doreen Virtue. I love her books and I think this would help someone through some difficult times they have been through. It names especially areas like sexual abuse and violence and traumatic experience that make us over eat and then out on weight. Its very interesting and well worth a read if you are into that type of book

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written 19 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is another one of Doreen's well written books. It does concentrate mainly on the effects of abuse/neglect on overeating and if you fall into this category then it will be the book for you. If like me, you just love food and too much of it, you might be better reading "Break the Pattern of yo-yo dieting forever" which covers a bit more about emotional eating rather than the effects of abuse.

I got it because I like Doreen Virtue's books and thought it would help me to loose some weight. But though there were good things in there I found that it didn't really appertain to me. As I said it will probably great for someone who has been abused as it takes you through stages and it could be a comfort to them!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing great 19 Jun 2013
By Edith
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book after watching an interview of Doreen Virtue. This book did not do much for me, infact reading all the stories of people who overate was depressing after a point. I thought it was pointless filling chapter after chapter with these stories of people who were suffering from eating disorders. Then again I have read a lot of similar books. So didn't work for me.
