Diet Coach

Kimberly Willis
Authors:
Kimberly Willis

This is an inspirational diet book with a difference. It is a non-diet book - with no restrictions, point-counting, calorie-watching or danger foods. Instead, DIET COACH is a pocket-sized guide full of tried and tested practical tips and tricks that restrictive diet plans cannot compete with. Author Kimberly Willis focuses on you, rather than the food, to help you beat cravings and take control of your eating habits. She uses a combination of yoga, hypnotherapy, NLP, acupressure and common-sense to identify ways in which you can really change your eating habits. Whether it is remembering key slogans (a glass of wine is the same as a glass of pasta), trying new distraction techniques (rubbing your finger between your nose and your top lip when cravings hit) or taking the time to really chew and taste each mouthful you eat, you will find strategies and coping methods that really work for you.This title has previously been published as The Little Book of Diet Help.

The Compassionate Mind Approach to Beating Overeating

Kenneth Goss
Authors:
Kenneth Goss

This self-help book explores the problems created by having ready access to high fat foods designed to taste good. Because we evolved in conditions of relative scarcity we have few natural food inhibitors and so most diet books try to encourage people to inhibit their eating by highly rule governed behaviours which have to be constantly worked at. However, this can lead to various forms of self-criticism which can undermine efforts at self-control. As a result our relationship with eating can be complex, multifaceted and problematic.Beating Overeating Using Compassion Focused Therapy uses Compassion Focused Therapy - a groundbreaking new therapeutic approach - to understand and work with our urges and passions for food. We can learn to enjoy and accept food and pay attention to our biological and emotional needs. This book is for people who have tried diets and found that they don't work and will enable the reader to have a healthier and happier relationship with food and their body.Topics covered: The relationship between our brains and food, the evolutionary background to finding, conserving and eating food How too much or too little food affects the brain, why diets don't work, factors affecting our eating behaviour (tastes, stress, comfort, etc) Body shape and culture Developing an inner compassion for one's relationship with food - recognising what we need and what is helpful
