A disordered eating teacher that speaks to us all!

Her program has worked so well for me after years as a yoyo-dieter, always hungry, always wanting, always overweight, always on a new diet.

Our bodies DO talk to us (well, not if you are waiting for an actual vocal chorded 'Hi, this is your body!" They are very good at telling us when to eat, when we are full, and what to eat -- what our bodies are craving. We never listen! This program gets you in touch with that and does so in a compassionate non-judgemental way. I dropped to a comfortable 130 and stayed there for years, not straying (maybe up or down a pound or two) and eating whatever I wanted but only when i was hungry -- not to be social, not because I was bored, not because my boyfriend dumped me (okay maybe ice cream then . . . but I KNEW what I was doing and so it didn't go on for more than a night.) I went from always wanting all the forbidden foods to allowing myself to have them but only when i craved them, which frankly, became less and less as I listened to my body. My body actually craves many things I was not aware I liked -- eggs, cantaloup (hated cuz it was a diet food) and salads! It doesn't feel good on diet sodas (actually gives me headaches), or some types of sugars (corn syrup gives me a stomachache.)

Also, this is not about any one kind of eating issue, despite what some have said. It works just as well for the yoyo-dieter as it does for the anorexic. I have done the program for years and it is amazing.

I have to say that those who wrote about her voice? WHAAAAA? I expected some crazy voice. She is well-modulated and just fine. Inducts a bit of a meditative atmosphere.

Buying the ones I have already read to share with our family and buying the new one too. I recommend!
