Have you struggled to lose weight, finding that every diet you've tried has failed you? If so, you are a diet survivor. It's okay to step off the diet rollercoaster to reclaim your self-esteem, positive body image, and happy, healthy life. This inspiring book of 60 valuable lessons offers the tools and support you need to change your relationship with food, your body and yourself.
When a diet doesn't work, you haven't failed - the diet failed you. Diets don’t work, so rather than struggle with illusive weight loss, why not strive to become happy, healthy and calm around food.
You do that, and this book can help. This book can show you how to:
- Never diet again and allow your weight to stabilize,
- Stop feeling guilty about eating foods you love,
- Free up all that mental energy to be more productive and have more fun in life,
- Get in touch with physical hunger and learn to love your body.
Judith Matz and Ellen Frankel are sisters and therapists specializing in eating problems and weight issues, each with over 20 years of clinical experience in the field of eating disorders.
A great read! This book is the answer to the countless diets that I have tried. The authors present a nurturing, compassionate compelling answer to years of an unhealthy relationship with food and my body. The quotes along the way both inspired me and made me laugh. This is the type of book that I will turn to again and again for support and guidance. After reading this book I am proud to call myself a diet survivor!

This is a very user-friendly book that can be read again and again. The simple to understand lessons, wonderful activities to help apply the information, and insightful quotes guided me to a higher level of understanding of my own body/weight issues. With this handbook, I am excitedly changing my focus from the diet-binge cycle to understanding, acceptance and better care of myself. Thank you Ms. Matz and Ms. Frankel!
