4.0 out of 5 stars very inspiring, 10 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Susie Orbach On Eating (Paperback)
I found this little book very easy to read and when I did it made a lot of sense. Having spent the majority of my life being a serial yo-yo dieter and wrecking my metabolism, it was encouraging to hear someone telling me, its ok to eat what I like when I like as long as I am truly hungry. It took me a while to learn how to be hungry, having never really experienced this feeling before. Some days I have two meals, some five, but I only eat when my body tells me its time because I am hungry, not peckish or bored or passing a bakery and the pies smell lovely!!!. Its not a new concept but it is for me. This book has helped me to finally accept that starving and bingeing or being told I cannot eat a certain food type in conjunction with another food type is not the way forward for me and is no use at all. I dont know if I have lost any weight yet becasue my scales are in the garage (tip), but everyone is commenting on how clear my skin is at the moment. I certainly feel better and the proof is in the fact that I can now eat one or two biscuits out of a pack and leave the rest for another day. (Major miracle not to be underestimated). Good book if you are willing to stick to the only major rule of "eat when you are trully hungry but stop immediately when you feel satisfied, not blaoted or stuffed, just satisfied". Beleive me, there is a difference. It takes time to learn this but the feeling is really great.
