5 More self help nonsense??tootsi4 | 22/05/2009 | See all tootsi4's reviews (1)The book is pretty much common sense - diets make you obsess about food, only eat when you are hungry and stop eating when you are full. The book tell tells you to enjoy all foods but only if you are hungry - not bored, upset, happy or whatever reason..I have been listening to the CD on my MP3 player for the last 8 days and although I keep forgetting exactly what the CD is saying (my mind must be really easy to mess with) it does seem to be helping. I have been dieting for 9 years and I always become obsessed with food and my weight goes up and down with binge eating and starvation. With this book I am naturally eating less and I don't feel like I'm depriving myself. In fact my boyfriend was eating a chocolate bar and I wasn't even bothered about having any. My attitude towards food has totally changed. I'm still eating in restaurants and ordering exactly what I want but I'm not stuffing myself and if I'm full I'll leave the food and I wont order a pudding just for the sake of it.You are discouraged from weighing yourself but my jeans are slightly loser around my waist.Over all I feel better about myself and more in control of my eating. Whether or not I lose all my extra weight is still to be seen but I don't feel I have starved over the last week and I feel positive about reaching my goal weight.
