Publisher's Summary

Why are certain women able to stay thin and never, ever diet? What is different between these naturally thin women and those that can only struggle to thinness through obsessive diet-like behaviors? The book explains the significant body of science which finally reveals the differences between the brains of thin and overweight women. It details the alterations in the brain that occur from years of overeating and dieting - and how to reverse them. In a personal and accessible style, the author guides the listener through an easy to follow step-by-step program based on cognitive behavioral therapy. The book's program does not include any food restrictions, or recipes. It does not prescribe any specific exercise program as its sole objective is to restore the brain to its healthy relationship with food.
You will learn how modern foods and ancient survival mechanisms have interacted to create an obesity epidemic. "Famine" brain, high-stress lifestyles, reduced pleasure from food and other factors are examined. Once you understand how your brain has inadvertently gone awry, you will appreciate this sensible approach to "rewiring" you brain back to its natural state - the thin woman's brain.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Keep gaining weight after loss? This is for you!

In a moment of desparation I ordered this audio book. All my life I have known that to conquer an eating disorder was not just about eating right. "Something has to happen in my brain" I kept saying to dieticians and psychologists.

This book has opened a window in my brain; introduced a fresh breeze of an approach and thereby a tangible hope of conquering a life-long self-harm addiction. The approach may not be "the answer" for everyone, but I dare to think after 4 months of listening to this book and installing and acting on the knowledge held in it, that I have been handed the key that I have searched for since I was a child. I am bent on completely "re-wiring my brain".

The book is simply and clearly read. It holds results of scientific research being done on obesity caused by food/eating related addiction (along with other addictions); it describes cause and effect; moves onto approaches of how to adjust the brain's responses to triggers; what to do about triggers; some tips and tricks and so much more.

For someone who does not want to just control what they eat to lose weight, always with the thought at the back of their head that the weight will be gained again when the control slips. For someone who wants to be free of this repetative cycle of defeat and really have a brain that thinks the way a naturally thin woman's brain does about food and appetite. I would suggest listening to this book now.
