book

I read an interesting book recently.  It was called The End of Overeating – Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite by David Kessler MD.  The first part of the book was the writer’s research on why people feel an unstoppable “need” for various foods.  I am one of those people.  Before I started this diet, I thought about food all of the time.  I would try to eat half of something and save the rest for another time or another day, but it seemed like I just couldn’t stop thinking about that food until I had eaten the rest.  I am worried that this “need” will return once I move to phases beyond phase 1.  It’s frightening.  The second part of the book is strategies for dealing with this food focus.  I’ve tried to the strategies a couple of times already.  One of the things is change your view of these trigger foods and instead of yearning for them, change your mindset to view these foods as the enemy.

I found it very interesting and I recommend the read.
