Book Description

Do you crave chocolate, bread, cheese, fries, or other foods? If so, there's a reason why, as Doreen Virtue's breakthrough book explains. Each food craving actually corresponds to a specific underlying emotion; so once you understand the meaning behind your particular craving and apply the information and affirmations within these pages, you'll be able to heal your cycle of emotional overeating. In addition, you'll read scientific studies about the mood- and energy-altering properties of each food, which will help you see how your appetite perfectly mirrors your emotions. This comprehensive and empowering guide will also show you how to give "food readings" to yourself and others, allowing you to accurately interpret the meaning behind many cravings. Constant Craving is a one-of-kind book that will give you the emotional, physical, and spiritual tools you need to make friends with food . . . and your appetite!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that delivers on its promise. June 6, 2000
Format:Paperback
Do you crave certain foods? Or maybe you find yourself eating everything in sight when things are going bad for you? Or do you fall off your diet because you are so hungry? Doreen Virtue, Ph.D., offers solutions to these and other food-related problems in Constant Craving: What Your Food Cravings Mean And How To Overcome Them. Based on her research, which included scientific studies, ancient Chinese medicine, and interviews with her clients, Dr. Virtue says that food cravings are related to our emotions. She defines a food craving as an "obsessive desire for a specific type of food." This is different than a preference, and it often leads people to eat in very unhealthy ways. "Food cravings often stem from basic unmet needs for fun, excitement, or love," according to Dr. Virtue. She explains how each food craving can be traced to a specific emotional need, often allowing people to heal themselves. For example, people who crave nuts haven't met their needs for fun and pleasure in their lives. She devotes a chapter to each kind of craving, explaining how the constituents of each kind of food work in the body to create an illusion of feeling better. For example, nuts contain pyrazine, "which triggers the pleasure center of the brain." She then offers suggestions as to how the emotional needs can be satisfied in ways other than eating, and finishes each chapter with affirmations. Specific cravings discussed include: chocolate, dairy products, salty snack foods, spicy foods, liquids, breads, rice, pasta, nuts and nut butters, cookies, cakes, pies, candy, and high-fat foods. Dr. Virtue emphasizes that meeting the underlying needs as the best way to overcome food cravings. She says that the appetite must be healed, not killed. Read more ›

What I especially liked about this book, is that it is not just another diet book. She states simply, eat less and excercise more and you will lose weight. What she does talk about is what type of eater are you and then analyzes what that means and then follows that up with a 5 Steps to Reduce Fattening Feelings, which I think is good, and which I am going to start using today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Right on the money August 16, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you can handle someone telling you about yourself who has never met you, then get this book! I've always wondered why I craved certain foods even though I eat a healthy diet most of the time. Craving chocolate means you crave more love in your life--well, that explains a lot. But the one that really blew my mind was my craving for pizza with "the works." It means I am drained from financial insecurities and have a desire for abundance. This is so true!

This is an in-depth book you can use to decipher your emotional eating and hopefully change the patterns. I admit I am still working on conquering the cravings!

Being a person who has struggled with my weight all of my life, I found that this book offered a lot of great insight into my issues with food cravings and weight gain. Very easy to read with great anecdotal stories. Have already ordered a couple of books to follow up on this particular reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent approach to reducing your weight. April 29, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of very few books I recommend to my counseling clients who still struggle with their weight.
I used to think of Ms Virtue as strictly spirituality-oriented. After reading her health books, including this one, I realize that was incorrect. She makes every attempt to guide the reader to a wholeness of body & mind & spirit.

This is not a dietary book.

The main idea: we do not nurture our body but our soul. How true.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Doreen Virtue books! March 25, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a really interesting book to me packed with a lot of info as to why we crave certain things. It made a lot of sense was easy to read and has a handy chart in the back for quick reference for when you're having that craving and you want to know why! She also includes affirmations to help curb the craving as well as some good tips to keep the cravings away. I read this a few months ago,and still use her tips!
