Do you crave chocolate/cake even after a big meal? Ever wondered why? "Potatoes not Prozac" brings it all home to you: why you have these cravings which seem so alien to other people, why you feel so depressed why diets make you feel depressed, why you just can't say "NO" to some foods! But it does far more than just explain the "why", it offers you a way out of the vicious cycle! The Author writes in a very straight-forward, easy-to-understand manner while crediting you with a fair share of intelligence ... a refreshing change indeed! The 7-step-plan turns out to be flexible rather than a rigid "Do-this-and-don't-deviate" approach, the principles are very simple and give you a feeling of being in control, and the message that "this is not a diet" is stressed many times. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone with food/alcohol cravings, but be warned: This will change your life forever - and you won't want to go back to where you came from!
