I had this book for over a year before I started using it. At first I just did one or two of the exercises because I couldn't sleep. Then I kept doing a couple more each day. Not all of the exercises are going to "crack your head open" and give you new insights, but you'll probably have at least one or two before you are even twenty exercises into the book.
Beware, though. The truth may come up. You may not like it initially, but it is probably one of those sneaky things in the back of your head that's been sabotaging your fitness and weight loss plans. For example, I realized that I really did have a significant fear about getting much thinner, because my partner is kind of chunky, and if I got thin I was afraid I might either want to leave him, or cheat on him. Not pretty to look at, and actually pretty disconcerting. But true. So I had to take a longer, deeper look at my relationship. Fortunately I love and appreciate him more now, and I have one less thing pulling me to stay "safe" and overweight. The exercises brought up more stuff, too, which I am still wrestling with.
To echo the other reviewers, yes, this is a workbook. I thought I didn't need it and it was just another money-maker for Genenne (who is AWESOME, and deserves money-makers), but then I actually sat down and did the exercises.
So have I lost weight as a result of reading this book? Eh, about eight pounds. This is not really a "direct results" weight loss book. But I am much less conflicted about being thin, and I am less likely to listen to the voice in my head that beats me up about being too fat. My overeating is less, and I am signed up for a half marathon in six weeks and a full marathon in the fall, and I am training to do a couple of 14,000 foot mountains in Colorado this summer. Whatever I weigh after I finish those goals may have to become my "good enough" weight.
If you are a therapist working with people about weight loss issues, or someone with body-image issues who is working on them with or without a therapist, this might be a very helpful book for you.
Every book by Geneen Roth is well written and enjoyable, but know that just reading this particular one without doing the exercises will not do that much for you. But if you're willing to put the time and effort into the exercises, a lot of your eating behavior will become clear. With the clarity comes a new degree of choice about what to eat and how much and when (versus compulsion or automatic, mindless eating). Please note that this is not a magic wand, making things (even with a sudden insight) change. Some simple behaviors are suggested but still unobtainable by me, but some things have shifted, and for that I am grateful to Geneen Roth and this book of hers.
Let me give you some personal examples. I am still unfocused while eating (the TV or computer is on, for example) but some foods I seemed to shovel down are no longer a problem. The book has helped me discover why certain foods used to trigger me to eat irrationally (pizza, ice cream, and cookies due, in my case, to childhood associations of these foods with family and love). I used to resist buying any of these, but I did succumb every now and then. And then I'd almost always wind up devouring the entire package (regardless of size) within hours, even if I had told myself THIS time I'd eat only a portion. I never really enjoyed the foods while eating them but somehow found myself dipping in again and again until the container was empty.
The exericse helped defuse the compulsion by helping me identify the assocation and helping me realize that it's the feelings and not the food itself I actually I want. (This still amazes me and it's now about two months since I had the insight and things shifted.) Now I can walk down the frozen food aisle of the supermarket, notice an incredible sale on ice cream or frozen pizza and not even open the freezer door. Since doing the exercise, a few times I've stopped at a pizzeria for a slice. Although the pizza itself is much better than the frozen, the longing/compulsion has vanished. Last night I was offered a bowl of ice cream at a friend's house. I paused and almost declined. I had a small bowl and (again, to my surprise) found I felt satisfied (versus my former response of wanting to sneak a second bowl, too). As for cookies, I still like them. The difference is now buy a three or four at a bakery occasionally and feel satisfied and happy. (Before using the book I'd occasionally buy a bag in the supermarket, invariably eat more than I intended to and then feel bad emotionally and physically).
This book can deliver results in terms of giving you tools and insights and the power to change formerly baffling behaviors, but only if you do the work.
