Subtitled "A personal revolution for food and body sanity," this book describes an alternative to the treadmill of self-denial, self-control, and dieting. It begins with the insight that if trying hard didn't work, trying harder is doing more of what doesn't work. There are very few guidelines about what to eat and not to eat in this book. Instead it presents a whole new way of eating, a new way of seeing food, exercise, and the body. Revolutionary, it also strikes a deep chord of common sense. Among thousands of diet and nutrition books on the market today, this book is a profoundly new voice, especially for anyone ready to transform the condition of obesity and all the mental, emotional, and spiritual conditions that go along with it.
