Many people wish to attain a healthy weight but only few are successful in achieving this goal. They try endless diets and are fed up with gaining weight as soon as they finished with their latest diet. Diets, no matter how good they may be, fail to address self-destructive issues that are often the root of the problem. Compulsive eating is all a matter of the mind!

- I’ve been trying so many different diets over the last 10 years and none of them worked. I know I am an emotional eater. I’ll loose some weight and then things get stressful and I put it all back on.. I know how to cut back on the bad foods, how much to eat, but this book has given me the mind tools I need to embark on changing my mindset for ever. I am never again going to buy another “latest trend” diet book. One week down and already I lost more than I did in six months of so-called”dieting”.
