Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Victoria Moran wasn't always as slim and serene as she appears now. For 33 years, she "lunged" at food, bingeing and dieting, rarely losing weight for more than a few weeks at a time. Then 18 years ago, she adopted the principles of self-acceptance, self-nurturing, and spirituality she describes in this book--and lost 60 pounds for good. She learned to live without obsessing about either weight or food, relying on "grace and good sense."

Moran's 101 "simple secrets"--each two to three pages long--are sometimes obvious, sometimes provocative, sometimes profound. Some, like "accept yourself today," "walk more," and "get a support system" seem self-evident, but Moran digs into the psychological components that might be holding you back. A few seem unusual, such as "in the beginning, eat out" (reason: when you eat in a restaurant, it's clear when the meal is over) and "visit an art museum" (to recognize the beauty of voluptuous women).

Moran's style is warm, welcoming, and strong, like a good friend who has found the answers you seek and won't let you off the hook. Highly recommended for emotional eaters who are ready to change the behavior and attitudes that are stopping them from reaching their goals. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

I have eleven books to my credit. The biggest seller is Creating a Charmed Life; my two Oprah-featured titles are Shelter for the Spirit and Lit from Within; and my newest book is Main Street Vegan. This one has led to such delightful projects as Main Street Vegan Academy, an in-person program to train and certify vegan lifestyle coach/educators (VLCEs); the Main Street Vegan radio show/podcast; and the February 2015 Main Street Vegan cruise -- details on all these are at www.mainstreetvegan.net.

I live with my husband, William Melton and our rescue-dog, Forbes, in a "green" condo in NYC. My daughter, Adair Moran, who helped a lot with Main Street Vegan, lives nearby and works as an actor, stunt performer, and licensed wildlife rehabber, working to build NYC's first rescue center for wild mammals, Urban Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitation.

Coming up: book number 12, The Good Karma Diet, slated for publication by TarcherPenguin in the spring of next year.

Fit from within is a must read for everyone trying to lose weight and keep it off. It is not a regular diet book; actually it is far from a diet book, as it tells you not to diet but to eat as a healthy person. There are no menus, recipes or success stories but there is plenty of good advice that will provide you with everything you need to know to change your body and your life. To let go of the diet mentality and start eating as a healthy person is an important message in this book. You do this by eating three meals a day while sitting down, eating good delicious food that you enjoy, in portions that will satisfy your hunger, and making water your beverage of choice. But remember healthy people do not stuff themselves with salty greasy fast food! The author guides you to realizing your spiritual self and surrendering your life to God to be able to come to grips with your life and your eating habits. Don't worry, no breaching here, but do give thanks before and after meals! Another focus of the book is on living a good quality life all the way and not postponing your life till you reach your target weight. Stay centered in today, wear clothes that you like in your current size, groom yourself like a racehorse, develop your mind and talents, laugh and play and get plenty of sleep. As for exercise, walk more, join a friendly gym or discover yoga, don't do too much too soon or it will backfire! Above all be patient, this has to be for the long haul. As the author puts it " If you want only a different body, and not a different way of life, you can't expect the body changes to last, because there will be nothing to sustain them. In other words, you can't just lose weight and go to business as usual without becoming overweight as usual. This has to be for the long haul.Read more ›

Reading this book reminded me of all the titbits of wisdom I have gleaned from many books over the years regarding overcoming eating problems and getting back to "normal" eating and "normal" weight. Those that come to mind include: Twelve Steps for Overeaters (L. Elisabeth), The Seven Secrets of Slim People (Vikki Hanson, Shawn Goodman), Fat is a Feminist Issue (Susie Orbach), Feeding the Hungry Heart (Geneen Roth), The Goddess Diet (Larrian Gillespie), Intuitive Eating (Evelyne Tribole, Elyse Rech) etc. Reading the other reviews, I can see there seem to be two main views - either 1) this book is great or 2) this book lacks something. As someone with long-term eating problems (over 25-years' worth!), my advice to prospective readers/purchasers is this. If you do not have a big issue with eating and/or being overweight, this may be the perfect book for you to get back on track. But if you have had long-term eating problems, one book may not necessarily be enough, it may be better to read this as well as a selection of books on related topics and work slowly step by step in your own time and in your own way towards your goal. Becoming fit from within is a very personal issue.

This book has become my best friend. It supports and guides me in my decisions, it cheers me in my smallest and most grand accomplishments, it encourages me to be kind to myself. It offers me practical advice that really works. I love this book as I would a dear friend, and I recommend it sincerely to anyone who is not 100% accepting of the way she feels, looks, or thinks she is perceived in the world.
I recommend it also as an alternative to protein diets, low-carb diets, special supplements, and other diet gimmicks. This is about real life and real food and living in the real world. It is really a helpful book.

Of all the diet and fitness magazines and books I have in my house, this book is the most informative, inspiring and thought-provoking. Moran challenges us to accept and honor ourselves in the present moment in order to prepare ourselves for the changes that lie ahead. It really is about the mental and spirital journey that comes with trying to lose weight. I especially appreciate her mother wit, honesty and light-heartedness. Everytime I read another chapter, I feel like someone has finally heard me and offering advice for real people with real lives. She advocates for being patient with ourselves, making the weight loss process as comfortable as humanly possible, and making the journey just as much a mental and spiritual thing as a physical one. With Moran's advice, I feel inspired to take the best care of myself as possible even though I am not at "goal weight" at the moment.

If you have a weight loss problem, either recent or a long time in the making, please buy this book. I, like other people, have bought almost every weight loss book on the market. I was desperate to lose weight and would try any new idea that was waved in my face. After 20 years of being overweight, I have finally found solace in Victoria Moran's lovely words of wisdom. For the last few weeks, my binges have ceased, I eat better and my soul is healing. I no longer have the urge to turn to food to make me feel better. I've actually lost a few pounds already without feeling deprived. And because I feel better about myself physically, emotionally and spiritually, that goodness is spilling over into other areas of my life. So, please buy this book to get on the path to healing yourself. I carry it with me everywhere so I can refer to it often. It's like having a wise and sensible friend with me at all times.
