Food has a vice-like grip on our emotions - we often eat when we are not hungry, out of habit, for comfort or when we are bored, stressed or unhappy. When we eat excess food that our bodies don't need it is stored as fat. Most books address the fat issue by encouraging us to diet, but this one tackles the problem at source - helping us to understand how our state of mind affects our attitude towards food. Learn to channel your thoughts in a positive direction in order to control your appetite, change your eating habits and therefore manage your weight. Practical advice and exercises complete the programme.
