9781604070750: The Self-Compassion Diet: A Step-by-Step Program to Lose Weight with Loving-Kindness

The secret to sustainable weight loss isn't counting calories or depriving yourself at the dinner table. Jean Fain tells us it's about cultivating awareness and self-acceptance wherever you are. With The Self-Compassion Diet, this Harvard Medical School-affiliated psychotherapist prescribes a practical program for transforming the way you think and feel about food and your whole self--a shift that, paradoxically, inspires physical change. Combining loving-kindness, self-hypnosis, and other winning weight-loss strategies, The Self Compassion Diet is available in two complementary formats to help you naturally progress toward genuine self-acceptance and a healthy, sustainable weight. With more than 30 different tools including quizzes, breathing exercises, and visualizations, the book explores four powerful weight-loss methods. The audio edition guides you through 11 key practices described in the book. Used together, this powerful combination can speed learning and boost success. Additional topics include:  1) how to appreciate the everyday activity of eating, and learn to trust your body's signals that it's nourished 2) Gradual change: a guided visualization for developing mindful eating habits 3) a meditation for getting to know the diet coach who knows you best--your compassionate "inner advisor." "Most dieters try to 'kill cravings' and break habits with self-discipline," teaches Fain. "Self-kindness can help quiet the shame that traditional diets instill, and establish a harmonious relationship with food." The Self Compassion Diet book and audio offer a treasury of heart-opening mind-body teachings and practices for improving the way you live, breathe, and eat.

From the Publisher:

"Just about everyone who has dieted knows that traditional diets with self abuse and deprivation are bound to fail in the long run. In contrast, Jean Fain's compassionate approach to weight loss is accepting and transforming. This book helps turn past diet abuses into present-day understanding and emotional sanity. I recommend The Self-Compassion Diet to everyone struggling with weight and self-abuse problems."
-Jean Antonello, RN, BSN, author of Breaking Out of Food Jail

"Most books about eating issues are so deadly serious they make me want to bury my head in a pound of pasta and forget the whole thing. In all my times of dieting, failing, and resolving to be harder on myself, it never occurred to me that not only had that approach not worked, but it didn't feel particularly good. Jean Fain's approach -- trying a little tenderness -- feels much better. Thank you for creating this gentle, sane approach." -Suzan Colón, author of Cherries in Winter

This book will not only transform your waistline, it will change your life."
-Kristin Neff, Ph.D., author of Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind

"If you're tired of losing weight and then regaining more, forget about starting that same-old diet tomorrow. Read this book today."
-Steve Gurgevich, PhD, author of The Self-Hypnosis Diet

"This book is a real gem!"
-Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance

"This delightful handbook moves the diet conversation to a new level. The author, diet expert Jean Fain, gently unravels the mystery behind successful change---self-kindness---and weaves it into a wise, carefully-organized, multifaceted, step-by-step approach to healthy eating."
-Christopher K. Germer, PhD, author The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion

"Jean Fain's engaging writing style, complete with mini-assessments, helpful practices, and case-studies, will help you say goodbye to dieting, once-and-for-all, and feel good in the process."
-Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD, author of Intuitive Eating

"The Self-Compassion Diet by Jean Fain blends eastern meditative techniques and western psychology for a gentle, comprehensive approach to weight loss. These techniques will help many people of any weight to be calmer and happier with their lives."
-Deirdre Barrett, author of Supernormal Stimuli
