From the Inside Flap
"Will empower all women to stop believing that our bodies are the problems, dieting the solution."
--Harriet Lerner, Ph.D.
Author of The Dance of Anger
In this revolutionary new book, bestselling authors Carol Munter and Jane Hirschmann explore the myriad reasons why women cling to diets despite overwhelming evidence that diets don't work. In fact, diets turn us into compulsive eaters who are obsessed with food and weight.
Munter and Hirschmann call this syndrome "Bad Body Fever" and demonstrate how "bad body thoughts" are clues to our emotional lives. They explore the difficulties women encounter replacing dieting with demand feeding. And finally, they teach us how to think about our problems rather than eat about them--so that food can resume its proper place in our lives.
"Many women will find in these pages exactly what they need: determined, optimistic, and resourceful coaches, pausing at the right moments to acknowledge the difficulty of change, then passionately urging them to press on."
--Susan C. Wooley, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychology
Codirector, Eating Disorders Center
University of Cincinnati Medical Center

I have read a lot of books about stopping dieting and learning to accept yourself but none have been as comprehensive, nurturing and useful as this one. I hate the title (its not a book you can easily read in pubic without a cover!) but the book is a real gem. It covers lots of different issues that people face and gives useful tips on how to overcome them. Some will be more relevant to you than others. I previously read "overcoming overeating" by the same authors which was good (4 Stars) but I'd rate this one at 5 stars.
