Book Reviews"The Don't Diet, Live-It Workbook contains so much insight, compassion and guidance to help women of all ages on their journeys to establish a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. A must read!"
"Having reviewed a lot of books like this one, The Don't Diet, Live-It Workbook is one of the clearest, most practical and useful books I've ever seen."
A terrain that was once dim, murky, and full of pitfalls is mapped out and well lit in this courageous book written by two local therapists. It is a road trip complete with maps, sign posts, and travel tips: How to prepare for this healing journey and what to watch out for. Andrea Wachter and Marsea Marcus have traveled this road, and they combine their years of personal and professional experience in this well crafted, user-friendly guide for working with food, weight, and body issues.
Written as a combination workbook and journal, each chapter addresses a particular theme of recovery and then invites the reader to explore these themes within themselves. Chapter headings such as "Emotional vs. Physical Hunger," "Thoughts vs. Feelings," and "Inner vs. Outer Solutions" make distinctions that are useful in moving toward peace with one's body.The authors say that "Food can be a solution for some things. It can end hunger, give nourishment, and provide pleasure, but there is no food that can combat loneliness, anger, shame, sadness or anxiety. These are inner problems that need inner solutions."
They say that "When we become obsessed with food and our bodies, we are trying to solve inner problems with outer solutions."The heart of this compassionate journey is in listening to and trusting in oneself, knowing when you are hungry, knowing what you are hungry for, and knowing how to respond to those hungers.
I use this book in my clinical work. I find that it encourages a deeper dialogue, offers concrete ways of finding inner solutions for inner problems, and helps clients develop, as the authors say, "full lives not full stomachs."
The Don't Diet, Live-It Workbook offers a refreshing approach to becoming your ideal weight while healing related issues in the process. Participating in the exercises is like attending an in-depth workshop. The true-to-life experiences and insights offered are extremely valuable and apply to all areas of life. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to delve deep within and remove blockages to self acceptance.
Andrea Wachter and Marsea Marcus give openly of themselves by sharing intimate details of their processes and struggles to recovery. With this self-help book the reader could easily achieve the goals outlined and have more compassion with themselves regarding their food/body issues.
