9780066213750: How Much Does Your Soul Weigh?: Diet-Free Solutions to Your Food, Weight, and Body Worries

You hold in your hands a life-changing weight control revelation -- a holistic approach to help you overcome all eating and weight problems from anorexia to obesity. This innovative book will shed light on your unsuccessful attempts at dieting and help you begin to heal from the inside out, once and for all!

How many "miracle diets" have you tried? How many minutes and hours have you spent worrying about the numbers on the bathroom scale? How many times have you lost weight only to gain it back along with renewed disappointment and frustration? You've worried about how much your body weighs, but have you asked:

How Much Does Your Soul Weigh?

Dr. Doric McCubbrey, a weight-issues specialist whose practice boasts a 95 percent success rate, reveals that the weight of your soul may be preventing you from effecting the changes you want to see in your appearance and self-esteem. By starting Dr. Dorie's plan for "Intuitive Self-Care," you can begin to unburden your soul of all the "weighty attitudes" of the diet mentality -- rigid rules, negative self-talk, and unrealistic goals -- that lead to very real feelings of disappointment and hopelessness.

With empathy and insight, Dr. Doric explores and explains the importance of a soulful attitude toward your eating, exercise, and weight. You'll discover:

  • the "games" dieters play -- and why none of them works
  • the four archetypal weight problems and how to overcome them for good
  • the secrets of naturally thin people -- and how you can incorporate them into your life
  • a 30-day plan of therapeutic "recipes" designed especially to nourish your soul

Packed with stories from Dr. Dorie's own 15-year struggle with overeating, anorexia, and bulimia, and the experiences of her clients, How Much Does Your Soul Weigh? shows you how to generate the happiness, health, balance, and confidence that will put your weight worries to rest for good!

About the Author:

Dorie McCubbrey, M.S.Ed., Ph.D. -- the "Don't Diet" Doctor -- is a licensed professional counselor who combines her doctorate in bioengineering with her master's degree in counseling to help people undo the damage that restrictive weight-loss methods often cause. A member of the National Speakers Association, she provides seminars, workshops, and keynote addresses to audiences across the country. She has developed numerous learning resources, including Dr. Dorie's "Don't Diet" Book, the fitness video Healthy Weight Workouts, motivational cassettes, and workbooks. She lives near Boulder, Colorado.

From Publishers Weekly:

With the favored formula for getting and staying thin changing nearly as often as the weather, McCubbrey (Dr. Dorie’s Don’t Diet Book) presents a plan that puts souls before scales—and therefore, she maintains, offers readers a lasting solution to weight problems. The key is "Intuitive Self-Care," a program whose followers look inside themselves (instead of to experts) to discover their bodies’ unique needs for food and exercise. McCubbrey offers sensible reasons why the games dieters often play (e.g., the "fat gram game," in which fat becomes an evil to be eradicated, or the "trade-off game," in which the foods eaten depend on the exercise completed) don’t work, and speaks of her own struggles with anorexia and bulimia, as well as stoutness. By learning to feed her soul and love herself, she improved both her weight and life; in this warm-hearted volume full of client cases and personal anecdotes, she shows readers how to do the same. Strategies include focusing on solutions rather than problems and eliminating emotional attachments to food. While not every one of McCubbrey’s clients emerges a perfect size six, they have all, she says, found a comfortable weight, developed better eating habits and become healthier and happier. For readers tired of weight-loss rules and rhetoric, McCubbrey’s book might be a breath of fresh air.
