Jean Fain suggests that we’ve got it all backward. “The best way to lose weight and look your best is to stop dieting and start with loving who you are.” With The Self-Compassion Diet, this Harvard Medical School-affiliated psychotherapist shares a revolutionary new model for lasting weight loss. Combining the best of four proven weight-loss methods—self-love, mindfulness, self-hypnosis, and group support—this unique mind-body approach cultivates true self-acceptance which paradoxically produces remarkable physical changes. The Self-Compassion Diet is available in two complementary formats. The book describes the four weight-loss methods. The audio edition guides listeners through the exercises described in the book. Used together, this powerful combination can speed learning and boost success.
