    As a lifelong dieter drop-out I could not resist buying this book! Written by a dieter drop-out this book had me laughing out loud, examining my life as a dieter, and starting down the road as a thin person. I am 61 years old and have dieted off and on since I was 12. Unsuccessfully. I found it imperative to work through the many questions the book offers in workbook form. I took my time and actually wrote my answers on my computer. I took the writer's challenge and lived one day as a naturally thin person--and what a revelation! By not concentrating on calories, carbs, fat grams, protein I found that food was simply fuel I needed to go through life. That is all it is and my body lets me know what I need if i just pay attention! I feel free and for the first time I do not live my days consumed by food and weight thoughts. I am losing weight without effort. I eat food I like ONLY. If you have lived on a diet roller coaster I urge you to read this book. Answer the questions. Be honest. I do not believe changes will take place without a hard look at what the writer asks.

    I read this book twenty-five years ago after losing weight on the Atkins diet- and gaining it back again, plus a little more. It hadn't been the first cycle of dieting, losing, and gaining back. Since reading the book all those years ago, I have kept my weight more or less normal for all the years since. When a few pounds would slip back on, I would reread the book... to be reminded to get back to thinking like a thin person, and the pounds would melt away . I have no doubt that if I had continued to go on whatever diet came along, I would be obese. I am not saying that it has been easy all the time. I love to cook and I love food, plus my particular trigger was worry and stress eating, and at times I still struggle with that. I bought the Kindle version because I had given my hard copy away and I still feel it us helpful to take a "refresher" read every now and then. You can lose weight on any diet if you get your head right, but if you learn to think like thin person, it is more likely to stay off... and there is so suffering involved.

    I found this book years ago, after hearing a radio interview with the author. It's a really good book for people who tend to overeat without realizing why, and have found that the traditional "diet" approach of restriction, or eating whatever new fad that comes along doesn't work. Besides just eating improperly or overeating, this book is much more. It actually guides you into analyzing what things in your life or mental state cause you to overeat in the first place. I not only curbed a lot of my overeating with this book, but it also helped me deal with the underlying depression and sadness that was causing it in the first place.

    We all know this book is true, but we fight it anyway. There are only 2 people I know who've permanently lost weight. The first one still measures all of there food( for10+ years), and exercises a minimum of one hour every day. The second one went to a psychologist who taught her that eating extra food when feeling stressed, tired, etc...does not help her. She like to occasionally exercise, and eats what she wants. I'm working toward #2!!! I've tried every diet multiple times. We all know they only work in the short term, but we still do them anyway...Oprah went to a Diets Don't Work workshop years ago, and hated it. Diets only work if you OCD and the life long diet and exercise become your compulsion...

    Bob Schwartz has written a wonderful book, it's absolutely solid advice on many levels. I only wish I could stick with it, only eating when I'm hungry & stopping as soon as it's enough. The most difficult part is zeroing in on those 2 tenets.His writing style is easy, conversationaly, making for a quick read. This book totally resonated with me.

    Have been reading quite a bit chunk of the naturally thin philology out there and Dr Schwarz's book along with "Intuitive Eating" is the best I 'vet come across. He really simplifies things on how you can become naturally thin for life. As I was reading it, I found myself incorporating his tips and suggestions in my every day life in an effortless way. Highly recommended! Thank you, Doctor!

    If you've been on a diet, I've probably tried it too. If you've done some cardio/yoga/pilates/weightlifting/hypnosis program to lose weight, I've probably tried that too. So I realize that if someone told you that you don't need to diet or exercise to lose weight, you'd probably freak out a little bit (just like I did).But please Give this method a chance - it actually works! I've lost 8 lbs in 3 weeks. My boyfriend has lost 10 lbs. We're also using a book called <u>The Overfed Head</u> by Rob Stevens. The methodology is similar, and the two books complement each other well.Seriously, stop dieting. Stop depriving yourself. Start losing weight. You'll feel so much better. It's not a gimmick. It's not a diet. It's real life.

    I first read this book 15 or 20 years ago, and it really helped me to put food in the right perspective. However, it's easy to slide into bad habits, and this helps to bring to light the cause behind those bad habits. Once you understand those reasons, it is so much easier to change your mindset, and EASY to lose weight without the guilt related to dieting.
