YES, YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE, AND EAT IT TOO!
--New book is the antidote to ineffective dieting, without sacrificing the food you love
"Most diets are restrictive and unsustainable, leaving the dieter feeling guilty and disappointed. My goal is to help people recognize and cope with their triggers for overeating, rediscover joy in physical activity, and effectively nourish their body, mind, heart and spirit."
-Michelle May, M.D.
Renowned mindful eating expert, author, and motivational speaker Michelle May, M.D. has re-released her award-winning book Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: How to Break Your Eat-Repent-Repeat Cycle in paperback and ebook. Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat offers the strategies and insights to end mindless and emotional eating and senseless yoyo dieting.
May combines her background in medicine and psychology with the lessons she learned from her own personal struggles with food and dieting. After developing a healthy, balanced relationship with food, May founded the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Workshops and spent the last twelve years teaching people to take charge of their lives and eat mindfully and fearlessly.
“Diets just don’t work long-term,” says May. “Dieting often leads to a vicious cycle of deprivation, guilt-driven overeating, followed by punishing exercise—the eat-repent-repeat cycle. I empower people to relearn to trust their natural cues of hunger and fullness to guide their eating effortlessly. You really can eat what you love—without overeating. When guilt is no longer a factor, common sense prevails.”
Using practical mind-body approach to build a sustainable, healthy lifestyle, May teaches readers how to:
• Rediscover when, what, and how much to eat without restrictive rules
• Resolve mindless and emotional eating
• Experience the pleasure of eating the foods they love without guilt or bingeing
• Build a fun fitness program that boosts metabolism and increases energy
• Learn the truth about nutrition without confusing, arbitrary rules
• Prepare delicious, nutritious meals with simple recipes
“The problem with restrictive dieting is that it is so food-focused. I empower you to break free from that trap by learning how to eat the foods you love when you’re hungry, stop eating when you are satisfied, and to meet your other needs without food. Ultimately, it is not about being good, it’s about feeling good,” adds May.
