My Rating: 3.5***
This book teaches you how to give up dieting forever, and to relearn how to feed yourself 'on demand'. Basically, it promotes the intuitive eating principles (see Glossary in sidebar).
I liked how the authors stressed that you should be patient and compassionate with yourself while you're learning. But I disliked how they encouraged people to go ahead and eat from "mouth hunger" (not truly hungry, just emotional). They state that eventually you'll not do this any more... your emotional reaction to food will die down when you realize that the food
will always be there, and that you're not going to be deprived of your "formerly forbidden foods" (sweets & treats, or anything that --on another diet-- you would be told NOT to eat).
