How to conquer the 50 most common diet busting excuses.

Publisher Description

So many people are motivated to lose weight, yet most will fail to maintain healthy eating and lifestyle habits or will succeed for a time, but eventually regain the weight they lose. Many more are diagnosed with diseases that can be easily controlled with diet and lifestyle changes that can be difficult to make. Pervasive, insistent thoughts such as "I deserve this!" and "I'm buying these chips for the kids, not for me," and discouraging, self-critical thoughts like "Who cares? I'm never going to lose this weight," keep many people in the habit of unhealthy eating. But I Deserve This Chocolate! targets the fifty most common self-sabotaging thoughts and habits. Each of the fifty chapters explains the mentality behind a particular excuse for unhealthy eating and offers readers a mindfulness exercise for rerouting the thought into a more productive, positive mentality toward oneself and a healthier attitude toward food and eating. This pocket guide to deflecting the thoughts that keep readers from getting healthy is ideal for readers who want to lose weight, those who simply want to eat more healthfully, or people who must maintain restricted diets due to allergies, diabetes, and other health issues.

"Susan Albers has done it again! But I Deserve Chocolate! exposes private thoughts about food that commonly lead to self-destructive overeating behaviors. She then offers simple ways to change negative patterns and resume our personal journey to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. This book is a gift to anyone with food control issues and I highly recommend it!" --Denise Lamothe, PsyD, HHD, clinical psychologist and author of The Taming of the Chew and The Appetite Connection "Giving the body what it needs is the foundation of self-care, whether your body needs nutrition, movement, sleep, relaxation, or even chocolate. When we meet these needs in a mindful way, we take away the power of the internal critic that can often derail our ability to find overall wellness. Susan Albers' easy-to-understand mindfulness methods will fully engage readers who are interested in balanced, healthy eating." --Chevese Turner, CEO and founder, Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) "With Albers' newest book, we learn how mindful eating is like jumping into a chilly pool on a hot summer day: Dipping your toe in might feel uncomfortable, but once you dive in, you never want to leave. She compassionately guides, challenges, educates, and empowers readers. You think you deserve chocolate? You deserve this book." --Leslie Goldman, author of Locker Room Diaries: The Naked Truth About Women, Body Image, and Re-imagining the 'Perfect' Body "Changing how we think about food, eating, our weight, and our bodies is a critical step in successfully overcoming struggles with eating and weight. But I Deserve This Chocolate! offers a wealth of practical exercises that can help end common thoughts that keep us stuck in such struggles. It's a logical and easy-to-use addition to Susan Albers' valuable series on mindful eating. We're grateful to have this new resource for the women who come to us for help." --Marsha Hudnall, MS, RD, director and owner of Green Mountain at Fox Run, a women's retreat for healthy living without dieting "These tips can spur you toward success on your personal health journey by teaching you how to make your thoughts work for you." --Ashley Koff, RD, dietitian and author of Mom Energy "In But I Deserve This Chocolate!, Susan Albers insightfully points out our fifty best diet-derailing excuses and shows one or two easy ways to tackle each excuse. The result is a punchy, inspiring book that is full of new ideas and practical tips for getting us past our most diet-destroying excuses. Fifty cheers!" --Brian Wansink, PhD, professor at Cornell University, director of the Cornell University Food and Brand Lab, and author of Mindless Eating
