The Science of Weight Loss, the Myth of Willpower, and Why You Should Never Diet Again
Author: Traci Mann
Publisher: Harper Collins
Category: Health & Fitness
A provocative expose of the dieting industry from one of the nation’s leading researchers in self-control and the psychology of weight loss that offers proven strategies for sustainable weight loss. From her office in the University of Minnesota’s Health and Eating Lab, professor Traci Mann researches self-control and dieting. And what she has discovered is groundbreaking. Not only do diets not work; they often result in weight gain. Americans are losing the battle of the bulge because our bodies and brains are not hardwired to resist food—the very idea of it works against our biological imperative to survive. In Secrets From the Eating Lab, Mann challenges assumptions—including those that make up the very foundation of the weight loss industry—about how diets work and why they fail. The result of more than two decades of research, it offers cutting-edge science and exciting new insights into the American obesity epidemic and our relationship with eating and food. Secrets From the Eating Lab also gives readers the practical tools they need to actually lose weight and get healthy. Mann argues that the idea of willpower is a myth—we shouldn’t waste time and money trying to combat our natural tendencies. Instead, she offers 12 simple, effective strategies that take advantage of human nature instead of fighting it—from changing the size of your plates to socializing with people with healthy habits, removing “healthy” labels that send negative messages to redefining comfort food.

Improve Your Health and Happiness with Intuitive Eating

Category: Health & Fitness
Diets aren't sustainable over the long-term, but so many of us don’t know how to eat without food rules to follow. By exploring the many reasons dieting keeps us stuck in an unfulfilling relationship with food--from misguided beliefs about weight and health to social bonding to emotional management--you can finally call off the search for the Secret (hot take: there isn't one) and learn how to eat according to the wisdom of your body. In her new book Enjoy It All: Improve Your Health and Happiness with Intuitive Eating, Sarah Berneche delivers a step-by-step process for healing your relationship with food and your body image. While nutrition recommendations frequently pepper the pages of magazines and newspapers across the country, we're left increasingly confused about food and disconnected from our bodies. Sarah teaches you that enjoying food and embracing the pursuit of pleasure can liberate you from diet culture for good while improving your health and sense of well-being. Imagine... • Feeling in control of your food choices — whether that means saying yes to double cheese pizza because it looks so good or no to the chocolate chip cookie because it doesn't • Trusting food and your body enough to smash your scale, delete your calorie counting app, opt-out of your exhausting gym routine, and ditch the extensive Sunday meal prep • Keeping previously off-limits foods, like ice cream and candy, in your house... and eating them in a calm, kind way • Having the freedom to enjoy pasta, pizza, and pie without a side of guilt or shame • Understanding how all foods can fit into a healthy diet, and how to make necessary restrictions (such as for medical or religious reasons) a little more enjoyable. Enjoy It All expands upon the following key points: • The reasons we diet and keep dieting — even when we know diets don't work • What's really underneath our never-ending quest for the perfect body • How our preoccupation with “good” and “bad” foods keeps us from food freedom • The value of habits and behaviors rooted in self-care vs. self-control • How pleasure isn’t antithetical to health — it’s intrinsic to it. Enjoy It All also features journaling and mantra exercises; an array of delicious recipes for breakfasts, mains, vegetable sides, and snacks; and a step-by-step process to support your health without dieting. We've been conditioned to believe we need to abide by external rules to be healthy. But what if everything you need to know is already within you? Take ownership and improve your health, happiness, and sense of well-being--all without rules or restriction!
An Eight-Week Individualized Program to Overcome Compulsive Eating and Make Peace with Food
Author: Gia Marson
Publisher: New Harbinger Publications
An innovative and customizable 8-week plan to help you take control of your eating habits—once and for all. Do you feel like your eating gets out of control? When it comes to food, does it feel like your life is controlled by cycles of deprivation and bingeing? Whether or not you’ve been formally diagnosed with a binge-eating disorder, you know that something needs to change. But like many disorders, what helps one person may not help another. That’s why The Binge Eating Prevention Workbook offers a wide range of evidence-based tools to help you take charge of your eating habits. Using the eight-week protocol in this workbook, you’ll learn how to recognize your triggers, cope with difficult emotions, improve relationships, and make healthy food choices that will ultimately improve how you feel. You’ll learn to understand the underlying causes of your binge eating, how to recognize binge-inducing environmental factors, why dieting just doesn’t work, and mindfulness techniques to help you stay present when the urge to binge takes hold. If you’re ready to break the shame-filled cycle of binge eating, this workbook has everything you need to get started today.
Bring an end to emotional eating by getting to the root of the problem. Most books about emotional eating tend to focus on how to strengthen self-restraint or how to identify what triggers it. The former can make the problem worse, while the latter may be different each time it occurs. Both approaches fail to help emotional eaters understand why they feel compelled to do something that they don’t want to do in the first place. This understanding is the key to changing this behavior. Howard Farkas, who has more than two decades of professional and teaching experience as a clinical psychologist specializing in emotional eating, explains the underlying motive that drives the behavior: emotional eating is not a passive failure of self-control, but an active impulse to reject the control of dieting. This defiant need “to be bad” usually leaves the person feeling guilty and anxious about their eating, and recommitting to their diet until the cycle repeats, and the compulsive eating recurs. 8 Keys to End Emotional Eating provides a detailed plan for breaking this pattern. By explaining the root cause that drives the desire to binge, Farkas offers practical skills to help you learn to change your mindset about dieting and end the impulse to binge. His road map for the future will help readers maintain healthy eating habits for years to come.

“A remarkable book, which in an entertaining way takes a deep dive into our bodies . . . you’ll never see (or taste) food the same way again!” —Martin Lindstrom, New York Times–bestselling author A Belgian chocolate cake topped with a velvety homemade mousse catches your eye on the menu. The next thing you know, you’ve ordered it—despite the hefty price. But do you know why? Through over 40 compelling questions, this book explores how our eating decisions tread the line between conscious and subconscious, and enables us to be more intelligent about food. With expert insights that draw from psychology, neuroscience, popular culture, and more, learn to see the innumerable influences behind your diet and cravings—from the size and color of your plate, to the placement of products in a supermarket, to the order in which you sit when out with friends. And the chocolate cake? Would you believe research shows that regional descriptions (Belgian!) and emotive, sensory language (homemade! velvety!) subtly affect your appetite? Know what and why you eat, when and how you do—before you next sit down to dine. “We make 200 conscious and unconscious decisions about food every day. Clearly, eating is no fun anymore. The authors want to cut through the juice cleanses and paleo diets to bring back some common sense.” —The New York Times Book Review “The connections between our emotions and the foods we choose are explored in fascinating detail.” —Parade.com “Offers easily digestible insights to help you make more conscious choices about what goes in your stomach.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

This book delves into the science of the mind, how food affects the mind, and how changing what we eat, changes our mind. What we eat has a powerful impact on the way we feel; how we think, how we act and what we do.Many people these days turn to pharmaceuticals to control emotional swings--What's misunderstood is that these swings are created through consuming foods which contain substances that affect our brain function on such a serious level we often require medication to counteract them.Our knowledge of which foods create these imbalances and negative perceptions of life, coupled with our understanding of just how prevalent they are in the diet, is what will arm us to take back control over our emotional state. What I share with you in this book comes from what I've learned through my own experience in the lab of my own body, coupled with years of research to understand the science of what is happening in the body when we consume certain foods.This book contains important information for both the beginner-to-raw and the expert-in-nutrition alike. It contains vital pieces to the puzzle of understanding the cause of most every major illness out there, and is the catalyst for new insights and important protocols in my book Pathway to Happiness.This information is also needed by those who have alcohol or drug addiction, autoimmune, lupus, epilepsy, Alzheimer's, any neurodegenerative disease or malfunctioning adrenal issues such as Parkinson's or Addison's. The same information can be applied in each case.
