Some of the tricks involve physical actions such as drinking a lot of water. That's a no-brainer, since most books on weight loss recommend this, but the author's ideas on when to drink and how much to drink may surprise you. Other tricks involve conjuring up the mental imagery to reinforce your willpower. Technique #4, "That's Disgusting," sounds gross - and it is - but that's the point of it. Technique #10, "Smellicious," is counterintuitive, but if it works as well as the author claims, it would make it a lot easier to walk by a bakery or donut shop!
In the back of the book are some additional techniques that didn't make the top 12, but some of these may be useful for some people. I've used one of these techniques ("Bargain with Yourself") with some success. There are several other techniques that are worth trying.
As a reminder, the book includes a link to a printable "Mind Over Mouth" chart that lists the 12 techniques with brief summaries of each.
The bottom line: A very helpful collection of practical techniques for reducing food cravings and reinforcing your willpower to resist them.
The author explains that Mind over mouth literally means controlling the urges and cravings at the very beginning with one's will power.
I finished reading the brief summaries in a single sitting. I rate it five star for readability, language and practical insights.
Another thing I liked about this book was that the tips were not something I've heard a zillion times. Even the first tip is something I had never heard of before and they were all very unique. This book would be a perfect book for ALL fitness trainers or coaches to give their clients. It would also be good for anyone who has made some life adjustments that have led to noticeable weight gain. For me, I just had twins last year so these tips are useful to keep me from overindulging. I think pregnant women could benefit, as well since the temptation to overeat during pregnancy is strong and there is nothing in this book that would be dangerous or harmful to a healthy diet while pregnant.
Finally, aside from the tips (which are very easy to read and won't take up your whole day), I like the nice chart that the author made. It's easy enough to print out and hang on my fridge. That alone is a great reminder of the mind being stronger than the temptation of opening the cupboards, refrigerator or running down to the store to grab a quick snack.
I think anyone who is a snacker or who simply likes to eat too much, or who has bad habits (like me) will like this book.
You can use it along with any diet or eating plan to give you more willpower. It's a great pep talk that can help you zero in on quick ways to deal with those times when the chocolate chip cookies in the grocery bag in the trunk of your car calls out to you on the way home. Or when that key lime pie parked on the dessert cart across the restaurant suddenly learns your name and beckons from afar. How do you deal with that kind of pressure? Well, there are some good techniques here!
