Don't start another diet until you get Fed Up!
Why? Because Fed Up! tells you everything you need to know to achieve a healthy, attractive body and a lifetime of fitness, without ever going on a diet again.
In fact, Fed Up! explains why dieting causes you to gain, not lose weight,--something that won't surprise millions who spend 30 to 50 billion dollars a year on weight loss product, suffer, starve, and yet still keep putting on pounds. Did you know that diets work only 2-5% of the time to cause long-term weight loss? That's why many diet products and books say, "Results not typical" in fine print. To lose weight, you need to STOP dieting and start working with your body rather than against it. Fed Up! takes the problem of overeating seriously, and addresses the underlying issue of why you eat, rather than recommending--yet again--another food regimen.
As a psychiatrist who survived the torment of dieting, and eventually an eating disorder, I understand your struggle. Let's face it: If we could simply make the behavioral changes suggested by most diets products, such as eating different foods, cutting down on calories or carbs, or exercising more and harder, WE'D ALL BE THIN! But it's not that easy--and most of us know it.
In Fed Up! I explain the scientific reasons why diets add pounds rather than subtracting them. (For instance, medical research proves that dieting increases stress levels--and stress is now recognized as a factor causing weight gain, through its effects on the hormone cortisol.) As a medical doctor, I describe how dieting "decouples" your eating from your appetite, creating a vicious mental an biological cycle that leads, almost inevitably, to uncontrollable eating and weight gain--and to crushing guilt and low self-esteem that lead you right back to the refrigerator.
Today, I live in a house full of ice-cream, bread, leftover spaghetti, and other formerly "taboo" foods, and I never--ever--worry about my weight. Whether I'm eating in a restaurant, making holiday cookies with my children, or enjoying a take-out pizza, I enjoy a relaxed relationship with food. That's because I know I'm in control, and I will never need to fear food, or my own appetite again. And yes, this is possible for you too!
My Ten-Step Diet-Free Fitness Plan tells you how you can reclaim your body, and reach a healthy weight, by freeing yourself from the diet trap and re-learning the natural way to eat. In addition I'll tell you:
How you can fight the cultural myths that make you gain weight
How to replace grueling exercise regimens with "fun physicality" that's far more effective for long-term fitness (and why obesity experts now recognize that it's not what you do for exercise but whether you exercise that determines long term weight loss)
How to prevent eating disorders and obesity in children (and why many "expert" suggestions about controlling weight in your children do far more harm than good)
How to identify medical and mental health conditions that could sabotage your weight loss efforts
How to get out of the rut of a diet-focused life, once you free yourself from endlessly counting calories and carbs
When you stop dieting, and use my Ten-Step No-Diet Fitness Plan to re-learn how to identify and respect your body's cues, you an at last lose weight permanently. I know, because I haven't dieted in years--and I never will again. I've watched the steps that freed me from dieting work for many others as well. They worked for my patients. They work for my friends. And they can work for you. You CAN achieve long-term fitness, if you follow the clear, simple steps I outline in Fed Up.
It's time to get off the "weight cycling" merry-go-round, and try an approach that takes your body AND mind seriously. It's time to get Fed Up!, and learn how to take control of your eating and enjoy food and your body--forever.

You've done the diets, counted calories, and cut carbs, but time after time you've had your hopes raised--only to have them fall when any weight you've lost comes back. The simple truth is that we haven't failed dieting. Dieting has failed us.
Well, it's time to escape that painful cycle. Dr. Wendy Oliver-Pyatt's revolutionary ten-step, no-diet fitness plan shows you how to cultivate a healthy relationship with food and your body, one that will actually help you lose weight and keep it off.
Fed Up! Tells you once and for all:
