Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

With primers available on everything from managing employees to finding a mate based upon one's personality type, it's amazing that something really important like dieting has gone unnoticed. Here, the diet guru to folks like Sharon Stone and Dennis Quaid shows how to cater your menu to your mental makeup.

I've been meaning to pick up a copy of this book for a while. I always hesitated because I figured it would be just another one of those "diet books" that would end up collecting dust on my bookshelf. Not this book. This is any excellent book that actually makes eating better fun. The first thing you do is take a quiz which helps you figure out your main personality type + sub-types. You then follow an eating plan that works best for your personality. The amount of calories you can eat also depends on some various factors such as age, activity level, etc. and another small quiz is provided to help you to figure this out as well. I like how the author recognizes that we're all different. Some people need to eat mini-meals all day long where other folks need a diet made up of sensuous meals or gourmet type fare. Whatever your inclination, you will find a plan that will work for you in this book.

I found Carrie Latt Wiatt's book lastnight and had to pick it up. I am a sucker for any kind of diet plan or panacea. So I bought it and started to read it right away. Immediately, I felt a sense of relief in reading what I read on each of the different personalities of eaters. Mrs. Wiatt doesn't try to fit everyone into one category because she knows, from years of study, that everyone eats differently and therefore relates and uses food in different manners.
I do hope to be able to use the simple to follow plan she has formulated for my "food personality." Many people have been successful by following Carrie Latt Wiatt's advice and I am inspired to believe I will be successful too!!
I love this book and believe it will help relieve other people who get stressed out by their personal battles with food, weight, body image and the diets that don't work.
This is not a diet book. It is a book that deals with the heart of why we eat the way we do and re-directs our focus on HOW to eat for nourishment and rejuvenation, as well as, complete health and well-being. END

I happened upon this book after my mom bought it and it's been one of the first pieces of comprehensive eating advice I've ever encountered. The author sets you up with tips for how to eat sensibly, and I've become a lot leaner since following her advice. The personality styles thing is a bit corny at first, but the approach is so gentle and effective that it's become my little food bible. Most importantly, the author enables you to make healthy eating second nature in a very enjoyable, uncontrived way.

I've read many diet & nutrition books over the years, looking for help in overcoming my life-long battle with excess weight. This book finally did it for me!

While the eating program included in the book is similar to other healthy, low-fat diets, it was the REST of the book which got me inspired. Using a series of questionnaires, Wiatt guides the reader to an identification of his or her own "eating personality." The premise is that different personality types face different challenges to healthy eating, and need to structure their diets accordingly to succeed.

This book is fun to read, and quite compelling. I not only enjoyed the read, but I've also enjoyed putting the plan into action...the first diet I've ever been on that doesn't FEEL like a diet!
