From the Inside Flap

Stop Stuffing Yourself When the bills pile up, do you pile on the pasta? Once you've managed to get the kids snuggled into bed, do you snuggle up with a pint of chocolate chocolate chip? Are you tormented by not being able to eat like a "normal" person? If you think your problem is a lack of self-control, you might be misunderstanding the reasons behind overeating. Emotional overeating has officially hit the mainstream, and Weight Watchers is here to help. Weight Watchers Stop Stuffing Yourself examines all the factors that can drive you to overeat—from stress and anger to boredom and loneliness—and explains how you can identify the causes of overeating and succeed at losing weight. Whether it was a family reunion, work pressures, an argument with your spouse, or a case of the blues, you can teach yourself how to offset the situations that once drove you to the chocolate layer cake. Throughout, you'll find thought-provoking quizzes to help you determine your eating profile and identify your food triggers. This comprehensive guide also helps you explore and investigate the situations that can lead to overeating. In addition, you'll learn how to handle and counter those stressful events with smart, yet simple, solutions. Real life stories of trial and triumph color each chapter, providing motivation, support, and encouragement to anyone who ever thought she was alone in her struggle with food. Weight Watchers Stop Stuffing Yourself is the must-have book for chronic dieters, the food-obsessed, and anybody who's ready to gain control over food and lose weight.

I have stuggled with my weight for nearly twenty years. Most of that time, I've been aware that emotions were at the root of my overeating, but I could never translate that knowledge into any kind of solution.
The greatest selling point of this book is the comprehensive quizzes that help you pinpoint exactly where your trouble areas are. The book also provides very concrete suggestions on how to address those underlying needs and move onto a healthier physical and emotional way of life.

Format: Hardcover
Weight Watchers, bless their point-counting souls, recognizes that losing weight is more than a matter of willpower or deprivation (and no one should feel starved when dieting). Truly health weight loss is part of a total lifestyle change. For each dieter, the reasons for overeating will be a little bit different but Stop Stuffing Yourself is an excellent tool to help udnerstand and get in control of overeating. If the Weight Watchers point system is used along with this book and if a little exercise is added to daily activities, then weight loss success is likely. I've tried every diet out there and nothing works like the Weight Watchers program. It isn't a rigid diet but allows for real life situations, including eating at Fast Food restaurants and saving up food choices for special occasions. Stop stuffing Yourself proves that it is possible to eat well and feel comfortable without feeling too full OR feeling starved. Moderation does rule, when it comes to the weight loss game, at least for long-term, lasting results.

I'm sorry about the first, very negative review of this book because it just isn't so. This book is not annoying psychobabble or anything of that kind, or I wouldn't have read it. There's no attribution for authorship, but with the number of bad books on weight loss, whoever wrote this should be proud of it. It's thoughtful but straightforward and describes eating problems and their possible emotional causes in very simple, practical, unsentimental terms. Because it's a Weight Watchers book, it also offers solutions -- sensible, flexible, positive ones that so importantly suggest that control is possible if certain reasonable steps are taken. In fact, I'm persuaded that this oldest of weight loss programs really does have the best answers, both the practical and, based on this book, also the more profound insight needed to grasp this complex problem, but with a real working understanding, not New Age gobbledygook. The best insights are often the most simply put, and that's what we have here. Filling your shelves with books on this subject, instead of taking the necessary action, is often just another form of avoidance behavior. Taking the necessary action, combined with good, supportive information, is the best answer for a lot of people. This book is full of real information and may turn out to be the only one you'll ever need.

This book covers all the big triggers for emotional eating, the sources and the possible cures. This is a great book for people who can't completely conquer those difficult times even after having lost the weight.

If you want to achieve permanent weight loss you must change your behavior...your lifestyle. This book clearly points you to the feelings that drive you to overeat and shows you the best way to alter your behavior so that you are no longer driven by pure emotion when it comes to eating. Another similar book that I loved is "The Power of Positive Habits" it shows you how to change your lifestyle so that you will lose weight...automatically.

I didn't find this book very helpful at all, I think it would be more helpful for someone with more control over their eating. For someone who struggles with deeper issues with food however, not very helpful. The suggestions are good, but it's just not that simple for everyone, as much as I tried!

Format: Hardcover
This is the same stuff one finds in the women's magazines at the checkouts or maybe this is where they may have got some of their articles. The "why do you eat" quiz was my favourite part of the book & helpful. I have lent this to other friends & they liked it as well. Evidentlty they don't buy women's magazine . All in all a so-so addition to my library.

This book does have value, but it has extremely serious flaws.

As others have pointed out, the book is heavy on explanatory material and inspirational biographies and light on technique. Additionally, its spacious graphic design and large font seem to have been chosen to make fewer words fill more pages.

Significantly, this book was OBNOXIOUSLY gynocentric in its word choices. Not only was there not one single male pronoun in the book, there were very few entirely gender-neutral sentences (even references to "someone" were quickly followed up with "she", etc.). It was, "a woman feels", "she may", etc. As a man reading the text, this had the effect of constantly distancing me from the advice being given. Yet I think female readers might equally find insult in the book's similar assumption that its female readers are exclusively straight and exclusively married -- with no references to boyfriends or partners, only to husbands and children. If the concept of emotional eating were not so (relatively) new, I would have suspected the text to have been imported whole from the 1950s.

I also cannot help but laugh at the irony of what a poor choice of titles this is. For people who are dealing with loneliness, self-blame, and anger, asking them to carry around a book whose cover features, in extremely large letters, the words "STOP STUFFING YOURSELF!" can only be an exercise in cruelty, if unintentional cruelty.

I will not say this book was useless (which is why I won't give it a single star) — it did contain some phrases, concepts, and techniques I found useful, but nowhere near enough in number to justify anything more than a handout. I imagine emotional eating must be covered much more adroitly in other texts, and I urge you to investigate them and not this.
