Publisher's Summary

Most people say that when they lose weight and look better, they'll like themselves more. Jean Fain suggests that we've got it all backward: "The best way to lose weight and look your best is to stop dieting and start with loving who you are."
With the Self-Compassion Diet, this Harvard Medical School-affiliated psychotherapist shares a revolutionary new model for weight-loss methods: self-love, mindfulness, self-hypnosis, and group support. This unique mind-body approach cultivates true self-acceptance, which paradoxically produces remarkable physical changes.

IT's ok

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, the narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I am pretty annoyed by the narrator. She is very specific about certain sounds, and it stops me from getting lost in what she is saying every time.

Was The Self-Compassion Diet worth the listening time?

I'm sure there are people who benefit from this book. I listened religiously for months, but nothing happened for me.
