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.

The best weight loss book I have ever read

If you could sum up The Thin Woman's Brain in three words, what would they be?

Life Changing, Enlightening and Exciting are the three words I would use to describe this book.
This book is a must read for anyone who has dieted and failed or has been on that diet/regain/diet/regain hamster wheel.
This is truly a discovery of what is at the root of why the dieting approach does not work for many people and how to in effect rewire your brain so it does.
It sounds very "mumbo jumbo" I know, but, it truly is not. Its very scientific and very logical.

Who was your favorite character and why?

the word character doesn't apply to this book so I will state the most interesting points are how different the thin and fat woman's brains react to food, mindfulness and its effects on your eating and your life and CBT and how it can provide solutions

What does Kate Fotopoulos bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Kate is a marvellous narrator, she clearly researched the subject matter and delivers it expertly. She engaged me from the start to the end.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes I did, a profound one. I found the likely cause of why I had been battling with my weight for 35 years and most importantly what I could do to address it

Any additional comments?

I have been following the on-line 21 day program that accompanies this book and I'm about half way through now. I feel entirely in control of what I eat for the first time in my life
