Overview
Do you regularly deprive yourself, succumb to temptation, feel guilty, and then start the process all over again? If so, you need this book. Dr. Michelle May will guide you out of the food-focused, diet-driven downward spiral that leads you to eat, repent, and repeat. She offers a powerful alternative: end your love-hate relationship with food and start eating mindfully and joyfully. No more rigid rules, strict exercise regimens, questionable drugs, or food substitutes. This book will soon have you eating the foods you love without fear, without guilt, and without bingeing. Create the healthy, energetic, and vibrant life you deserve. Called ''the antidote to ineffective dieting,'' Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat is a rare prescription for optimal health of the body, mind, heart, and spirit. After twenty years of yo-yo dieting, physician Michelle May discovered a peaceful, joyful relationship with food. Now Dr. May will show you how to resolve mindless and emotional eating and break free from your eat-repent-repeat cycle. With uncommon sense and a powerful mind-body approach to healthy living, Dr. May helps you rediscover when, what, and how much to eat without restrictive rules. You'll learn the truth about nutrition and how to stop using exercise to earn the right to eat. You'll finally experience the pleasure of eating the foods you love--without guilt or bingeing. Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat received seven awards for publishing including Best Health Book, Best Body-Mind-Spirit Book, Best Nutrition Book, and Best Self-Help Book. TIME.com called Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat one of the Top 10 Notable New Diet Books for 2010 (though Dr. May insists that it is actually a how-NOT-to-diet book). Diets don’t work! Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat is based on Dr. May’s Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Workshops which teach unconventional yet proven strategies for eating fearlessly and mindfully. Live the life you crave!
