Actually, I'm not sure I'm recovering. I make some strides in self-control and then end up in the dirty love affair again. I need to lose about 50 pounds.
Caroline's story is so, so inspiring. I loved how she shared from her childhood, about her hurts at losing 2 dear cousins in a car accident as well as the loss of her dad's companionship after her parents' divorce. And how these losses intensified her turning to emotional eating, bingeing on food, and brought on depression. I could relate so much of her story and was so happy to have found her book.
In the end, though, as truly happy as I am for her that she has found a method of losing and maintaining weight that works for her, I just feel that it's not realistic for the majority of people. It just isn't. Definitely not for me. (Full disclosure: I am fat. I am fat for a reason. I'm not willing to count calories, fat grams, points, or anything of the sort. I'm also not willing to eat as Caroline did and does. That's why I'm fat and she's not! I love to exercise but you can't out-exercise a bad diet, I'm proof of that.)
Caroline is also not willing to count anything and so has held to the 2 following weight loss strategies that helped her lose all that weight and keep it off (I'm not giving anything away in the book; this info is on her website as well):
1) she eats ONLY lean proteins and non-starchy vegetables. That's it.Read more ›
Caroline's book is funny and informative. I love her approach. This wasn't a diet for her, but a total lifestyle change. And she's right! Your life does have to change if you are dealing with a food addiction. This book is not some boring dieting "how-to" guide. She gives some practical tools that could help you lose some weight. I must say I don't agree with all of her methods (I'm not sure if I can get rid of all the foods I love just yet.) Maybe I'll try some of them down the road, (baby steps.) But she does offer a great starting point. And if you have questions about the book, just send Caroline a tweet, she will respond. Kudos to you girl! You are an inspiration.
