Foodaholic: The Seven Stages to Permanent Weight Loss is the missing link in diet books. It is not a diet, but rather a guide through the psychological process of losing weight and keeping it off.
Foodaholic breaks down the process of losing weight into seven stages, from the realization (OMG I’m fat!) to acceptance that weight maintenance isn't a matter of a diet; it's a lifelong journey.
Written by weight loss expert and licensed psychotherapist Irene Rubaum-Keller, Foodaholic is full of personal and clinical examples of how to overcome familiar but challenging obstacles such as “the plateau,” the shock of looking different and dealing with other people’s reactions. It is the ultimate road map through the jungle that is weight loss.
