It's no secret that I struggle with my weight and being the avid book reader that I am, I am always reading about weight loss topics. Most of them give you a lot of scientific data, diet tips, and exercise options. But if you've ever watched a reality show with people trying to lose the pounds, you know that the issues go beyond just stopping at too many fast food restaurants or not being able to push yourself away from the table. There is almost always and emotional reason behind our food addic ...more

Doreen Virtue might be just a little wack-a-doodle (the woman wrote a book about talking to fairies), but I say don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. While I'm not sure I buy her theories about specific food cravings representing specific emotional issues - and she's very specific - I'm on board with the idea that we often eat to avoid uncomfortable feelings. This book didn't do a whole lot for me personally, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to someone struggling with food issues. ...more
I think the information was really good but the author's writing style was not. It seemed too informal for a book about scientific research on food in the body. I mean, some colloquialism is good to connect with the reader, but this was the entire book.

Other than that, I felt I learned a lot and I'm definitely keeping the book for future reference. The tips she gave for controlling the appetite were helpful and actually work!
Loved this book. As always DV is easy to read and makes a lot of sense. I learned a few things too. DV always has great information to share and this book from 20 years ago still has info to share to better your life....

I bought this book based on a fellow blogger's review. I did like it. The premise is simple, you are getting fat because you can't differentiate between real hunger and eating to fill an emotional need.

There is a six-step program outlined in the book to help you discover if you are eating for hunger or not. I think it's somewhat helpful but this book won't help you lose weight unless you truly work out why you're suffering from emotional hunger. This might mean seeking professional help.

A little new agey at times, but a lot of good advice about figuring out what you're really feeling when you eat as a self-soothing mechanism.

Very insightful book with a lot of information. At times it felt like too much information and I did skip over sections but felt like I took from it what I was supposed to. The essence of it is that when you overeat it is often for emotional reasons so asking yourself why you want to eat when you are not hungry can help in healing your eating patterns. I also have found that asking myself "am I eating for emotional or physical reasons" is helpful as she too suggests in the book.
According to author Doreen Virtue, "we intuitively crave foods that perfectly match our emotional needs..." The descriptions of what different cravings mean was kind of like reading horoscopes: "your love life is lacking" or whatever. Until I read about craving salty, crunchy things (like Wheat Thins). I don't have the quote, but it was something about feeling frustrated by change that is out of your control! Maybe she's onto something!

I must say that I am kind of torn apart. One side of me really like this book while the other side does not. The good thing with this is that is very easy to read, for those who do not have English a main language, and the most important thing is that it is very insightful.
But in the end is got kind of boring and I lost the interest. So I just ended it cause i felt that I had to.
Pretty interesting and with some new useful information even if, in the end, it seemed to me that all the cravings are for similar emotional reasons.

Parecchio interessante e con alcune nuove informazioni, anche se, alla fine, mi sembrava che tutti di vari desideri di cibo avessero alla baste le stesse emozioni.

A great book by Ms. Virtue. Certainly explains why I crave some of the food that I do. It is like you can watch the trend of where you are and where you have been, simply by what your body is craving to eat. I found it very interesting, and a book that I will keep to reference back to over time.
Really helps to get over those cravings. Plus learnig why you have them & how to overcome them.
