  • Carry a Chunk of Chocolate Everywhere

  • and much more

One of the most clear-headed and intelligent views I've ever read on dieting. It's not the books that push you and yell at you. It's the book that catches your back when you slip, and helps you understand all emotional sides of dieting. It helps show you how to feel good about yourself, no matter where you are in your diet.
