Still battling with food?Stop fighting. Make peace.

The Diet Survivor’s Handbook

If you are tired of being caught in the diet/binge cycle, this compassionate book will reaffirm that you haven’t failed diets; diets have failed you. This easy-to-read guide gives you a step-by-step approach to effectively end overeating and to become an attuned eater, making peace with food.

Each of the 60 lessons teaches how to experience a positive, satisfying relationship with food, your body, and ultimately yourself. Lessons include an activity to practice or integrate the concept, and a quote that is either humorous or inspirational for diet survivors to let go of shame and begin the healing process.

  • I have been working with a client for awhile who was feeling somewhat “stuck.”  I sent her home with The Diet Survivor’s Handbook, and she came in yesterday, clutching the book, saying, 'This book changed my life.' I just had to tell you!

  • I wanted to thank you for The Diet Survivor’s Handbook.  I picked it up last weekend and could not put it down – it is amazing and has absolutely changed my life!  I have struggled my entire life with dieting, and despite having a Ph.D in psychology have never been content with my body.  I am now a professor and am often shocked by the body image problems in my graduate students – despite being intelligent people they hate their bodies and have such low self-esteem.  I am going to recommend your book and publicize it within our department. Thanks again
