There are weight loss concepts here that are fresh and simple - although they may take some time to master. I particularly love the connection to a sense of autonomy or shame around food. I appreciate the simple deconstruction of these concepts as they relate to food. I also had a 'duh' moment when the author mentioned how the body does not like the shock of sudden dietary restriction (ie going on a diet)... brilliant! So obvious but I never made that 'shock/threat' connection, knowing full well about famine response etc.. Simply and succinctly put. There is a lot here to process, but it quality not quantity, and it is worth the investment .
This book filled a gap in my living skill-set that is now so important to me I don't know how I haven't found anything like it before. From the start it was so inspiring I chose to read it slowly, knowing it would deliver. Thank you, Stephen.
