Blurb from back of book:
"Fat is not about food. Fat is about protection, sex, mothering, strength, assertion and love. Fat is a response to the way you are seen by your husband, your mother, your boss, and yourself. You can change that response by learning the difference between "mouth hunger" and "stomach hunger," by seeing weight loss as a good thing rather than a punishment, and by realizing that food is not your enemy. Author Orbach says most women respond to her new program by maintaining or even gaining weight at first, as they learn to accept and like themselves. That's okay. And that's just the beginning of this astonishingly effective new approach to weight loss through satisfaction."
