From the Inside Flap
"Will empower all women to stop believing that our bodies are the problems, dieting the solution."
--Harriet Lerner, Ph.D.
Author of The Dance of Anger
In this revolutionary new book, bestselling authors Carol Munter and Jane Hirschmann explore the myriad reasons why women cling to diets despite overwhelming evidence that diets don't work. In fact, diets turn us into compulsive eaters who are obsessed with food and weight.
Munter and Hirschmann call this syndrome "Bad Body Fever" and demonstrate how "bad body thoughts" are clues to our emotional lives. They explore the difficulties women encounter replacing dieting with demand feeding. And finally, they teach us how to think about our problems rather than eat about them--so that food can resume its proper place in our lives.
"Many women will find in these pages exactly what they need: determined, optimistic, and resourceful coaches, pausing at the right moments to acknowledge the difficulty of change, then passionately urging them to press on."
--Susan C. Wooley, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychology
Codirector, Eating Disorders Center
University of Cincinnati Medical Center

If you are ready to look past your weight and focus on your well-being, then this book will be a great companion. It is well written, with real-life examples from women who have discovered the secret to a lifestyle free from body image worries; a lifestyle that is light and loving in itself.
I am happy that I found this book at the perfect time for me. It has helped me transform myself into the person I am today. These days I can focus on my friends, and I can be relaxed enough to let go of my insecurities and have a great time. It has been a year-long process and although I still have to remind myself every once-in-a-while, it has gotten much easier to snap out of it.
make sure she doesn't suffer in the same way we have from self-hating body image shame, buy and read this book.
