4.0 out of 5 stars This is the reality of weight loss, 16 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rules of "Normal" Eating: A Commonsense Approach for Dieters, Overeaters, Undereaters, Emotional Eaters and Everyone in Between! (Paperback)
This book along with "diets don't work" in my opinion is an essential read but only if you are willing to be realistic about loosing weight. This is a serious book written by a serious health expert. It's more about changing how you feel about yourself then how to loose the pounds overnight. It's written brilliantly and with a friendly approach. Interestingly no where in the book are there any words on how much you will loose or how quick. It's a serious and realistic approach to changing completely how you think about food and especially dieting. It's not an overnight fix but its woken me up as a serial dieter and i can feel the change within me already.

It explains how normal people eat and how they think with regards to eating. The four Golden rules that paul mckenna goes on about (which he actually "borrowed" from other health experts) 1) eat what you want 2) eat consciously/slowly 3)eat what you want 4)when you are full stop eating. But it only mentions these once.

If you are serious about loosing weight and if you want to change how you see food and the importance you give it. This is the book for you. Its not an easy read and it really is not an overnight solution. But it is the first step on being honest, tackling your food issues and loosing weight. Once you have read this, i cannot stress enough in fact let me do caps... BUY "DIETS DONT WORK" AFTER YOU HAVE READ THIS and you will start to realise where you have been going wrong if you are a multiple dieter. (I review that too)

Be serious with yourself. Please for the sake of your sanity if diets havent worked for you. Invest in theses two books (BOTH this one first then the other). We should really be thankful for this book as serial dieters. It's time to stop the madness and see why we have been going wrong. The serious earthy and realistic version of the Paul Mckenna "diet"

I give it four stars because a lot of people will be put off by the ultra realistic approach especially those used to quick fixes. And theres no exercises or notes as such to help you. Once the book is read you have to remember a lot of things. But i still recommend it if you are at your wits end. Get going and get these books.

Could you please confirm which 'Diets don't work' book you recommend as quite a few by different authors are coming up on my search. Thank you
