Synopsis

But I Deserve This Chocolate! The Fifty Most Common Diet-derailing Excuses and How to Outwit Them by Susan Albers

This title comes from bestselling author and mindful eating expert Susan Albers. So many people are motivated to lose weight, yet most will fail to maintain healthy eating and lifestyle habits or will succeed for a time, but eventually regain the weight they lose. Many more are diagnosed with diseases that can be easily controlled with diet and lifestyle changes that can be difficult to make. Pervasive, insistent thoughts such as I deserve this! and I'm buying these chips for the kids, not for me , and discouraging, self-critical thoughts like Who cares? I'm never going to lose this weight , keep many people in the habit of unhealthy eating. This pocket guide is ideal for readers who want to lose weight, those who simply want to eat more healthfully, or people who must maintain restricted diets due to allergies, diabetes, and other health issues.

Reviews

Susan Albers has done it again! But I Deserve Chocolate! exposes private thoughts about food that commonly lead to self-destructive overeating behaviors. She then offers simple ways to change negative patterns and resume our personal journey to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. This book is a gift to anyone with food control issues and I highly recommend it!
-- Denise Lamothe, PsyD, HHD, clinical psychologist and author of The Taming of the Chew and The Appetite Connection
