Présentation de l'éditeur

Conquer Your Food Addiction is not a diet book.

But if you're committed to losing weight, it's the right book for you!

Nobody can cajole, trick, or provoke you into shedding those excess pounds. But if you are genuinely ready to go for it, Caryl Ehrlich is here to lead the way with her 8-step program for permanent weight loss. The perfect solution for people who are overweight -- many of whom are compulsive eaters -- Ehrlich's is a behavioral approach to weight loss that teaches you how to change habits in order to overcome food addiction. As she observes, no deprivation diet will work for food addicts, because they use food the way other addicts use drugs or alcohol: not to satisfy physical hunger but to distract oneself from painful feelings -- loneliness, anger, boredom, sadness -- with a never-ending conveyor belt of food.

A former compulsive eater herself, Ehrlich developed this easy-to-understand program for herself more than twenty-five years ago and has taught it to others, with astounding results, for more than two decades. With the help of Conquer Your Food Addiction you will:

• Learn how to distinguish physical hunger from emotional hunger

• Become aware of your unconscious, ritualized eating habits

• Develop the skills necessary to approach food differently

• Change your behavior in order to change your body

• Awaken to an improved, realistic relationship with food

Using original concepts and easy assignments, Ehrlich's proven 8-step program retrains your thought process so that you can begin to see food in a new and healthy way. Once you do, you'll be amazed at how the pounds come off!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Inconsistent and disappointing 31 août 2006
Par Epi_girl - Publié sur
Ms. Ehrlich (who has no credentials I have been able to discover) begins by promising that her program is not a diet, and that you can still eat anything you want. She goes on to essentially equate bread with dessert, and forbid sandwiches outright, along with anything else eaten with the hands. There does not seem to be any recognition that different people have a problem with different types of food or eating situations. Despite her claim that this is not a diet, much of the book is taken up by her meal plans.

With revolting illustrations and such recommendations as wearing tight clothes and tightening the belt before eating, she takes an aversive approach to food and eating in general. There is also a lot of focus on weight. "If you really want to weigh ___ pounds" is repeated as a mantra. Ehrlich prescribes an obsessive habit of twice-daily weighing, going so far as to insist that if the reader were serious about weight loss, he or she would pack a bathroom scale on trips. A person with a compulsive eating problem probably already has plenty of self-loathing, and it seems like some of these strategies could really backfire.

There IS some good advice in here--like the importance of recognizing small successes rather than focusing on failures--but not nearly enough attention to the behavioral aspects of compulsive eating.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of a kind - Get it! 12 septembre 2006
Par Atia - Publié sur
Conquer Your Food Addiction is a one of a kind weight-loss book. Yet it's much more than that! As a behavioral approach to weight loss, it a manual for a new way of thinking, behaving, being and eating.

The author's basic premise is that one need not change the foods one eats, but, instead, one's habits. It sounds so basic, until we try it. As creatures of habit, our diets revolve around deeply-ingrained habits and rituals derived from personal history, a contemporary super-size culture, and daily life-styles. The main idea/goal is that if one is overweight, barring some medical condition, one is eating more than needed out of habit!! Change the habits/rituals and you change your food consumption.

Although this book is written for those who are food addicts, it speaks to all of us who more often than not use food as an emotional filler, and/or who just eat out of habit, social pressure, boredom and so on.

In terms of the actual weight loss, the author turns into a personal weight-loss trainer - in fact, she is one, for those who live in the New York area. Her goal is our goal: to reach our weight loss goal, regardless of how many pounds. Like a coach, she asks again and again, "What do you want to weigh?" This is tremendously helpful in sticking with it! By focussing on the goal, the issue is less about food and more about changing our habits, hence our outlook, about eating to get us to our permanent weight-loss goal.

I find this book one of a kind. In fact, I don't see another out there like it! I highly recommend it for someone who is serious about transforming both mind, behavior and body!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book made me think about what I eat 6 juillet 2006
Par Amalfi Coast Girl - Publié sur
This review is written by a 44 year old woman that has struggled with losing weight for many years. The combination of too much work, and not enough sleep and exercise resulted in "excess storage tissue" as my darling husband likes to call it. If you have ever eaten something, even though you weren't hungry, this is an interesting book.

This book is written for those that consume the standard American diet. As a new vegan I found it a little difficult to modify to fit that lifestyle since the diet advocates eggs and animal protein in the session on meal parameters. However, I have been able to substitute tofu, beans and seitan in a way that seems appropriate to me.

The book is subdivided as follows:

Session 1: The Basics

Session 2: Meal Parameters

Session 3: The Fillers

Session 4: Number of Items

Session 5: Portion Size

Session 6: Quantum Leaps

Session 7: Comprehensive Review

Session 8: Home Base

The book is divided into sessions. The idea is that each chapter covers what the author would cover in a session if the reader were a client coming to her office. The chapters are very easy to read, and yet still make you think. I found myself trying to argue with the book that certain ideas are unnecessary. I must admit that I do not follow all the practices that the author advocates, but have incorporated most of them into my daily life.

The author advocates a few practices that are standard, like recording what you eat. No one likes to do this, but it does seem to work. The author also advocates weighing yourself twice a day, morning and evening. I think this is overkill and refuse to do it. But, weighing myself once a day is fine.

What this book did for me was to bring a general level of awareness to my eating. Having to record everything that you put into your mouth has a tendency to make you much more aware.

The most important thing that I learned from the book was the idea that I should be hungry when it was time for the next meal. What I mean by this is that if lunchtime comes and I am not hungry, then obviously I ate too much for breakfast. This seems like such a simple concept, but somehow it eluded me. With this new information I have been able to reduce my meal sizes dramatically and am still satisfied, but have begun to lose weight.

If you are looking for a push to lose a few pounds, or a lot of pounds, this book provides a very different way of approaching and thinking about food. In my opinion this is a very useful book from the perspective that it altered my thinking about food. I recommend this book to anyone that is struggling with excess weight.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A book after my own heart. 12 septembre 2006

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
First of all, I didn't read this book in order to lose or maintain weight. I read it because of the title, "Conquer Your Food Addiction," which reflects my attitude toward food consumption and bodyweight, which is: If I'm eating more than I need to eat for proper nutrition AND enjoyment, and I am overweight but with no medical problem causing my excess weight, then I should pay attention to my eating habits and change them. The way I had lost weight and maintained that loss without feeling deprived of enjoyment, turns out to be basically the way the author of this book went about it, and wrote about it.

And, I, like the author, had other serious addictions--my own having been heroin, which I kicked forty years ago, and cigaret smoking, which I kicked eighteen years ago. I figured I didn't need an amount of food that caused me to be overweight any moe than I needed heroin or cigarets.

There is no book that is perfect for every person. Upon reading any book, one should learn from it what one can, and do whatever else is helpful for one as an individual. I find, for myself, that regular exercise three times a week, helps give me a sense of how much I need to eat. I also try to make my calories count. For instance, I have a sweet tooth, but I have found that instead of having a piece of cake with rich topping, I am truly satisfied with, for instance, a whole-grain rice cake or whole wheat matzoh with natural (non-hydrogenized) almond butter, topped with reduced fat sour cream or yogurt.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The good points are great, ignore the extreme ones 4 avril 2008
Par avid reader - Publié sur
I borrowed this book from my local library, I jotted down what I found to be helpful, good information and ignored the extreme behaviors such as weighing in 2x a day and vacationing with my scale! Then I brought the book back.
She does make a lot of good points, and a lot of the advice does make sense. But it is the book of an obsessive person and I can't imagine living that way. I won't give up sandwiches, but I do put them down between bites and make a conscious effort to eat slower. I do not eat all my foods independently of each other. Some things were meant to go together.
I don't tell people I am dieting. But I also don't consider black tea or coffee food.
Use the book as a reference, pull out the parts that are helpful to you, and ignore the rest.
