EAT, CHEAT, And LOSE POUNDS! The Smart Dieter's Cheating Guide dares to reveal the secret formula for the only proven system for weight loss on a long term basis--How to eat less without serious deprivation through heightened awareness, understanding, and command of the mind. The reader is invited to look into the mind-sets of the dieter--explored over many decades by widely known psychiatrist, Dr. Harvey Widroe--and to observe the behavior and the dieting mythologies to which millions of dieters almost tragicomically subscribe. We become able to discover those thoughts and feelings in an interactive process, and to learn from the failures and triumphs of others as we assure our own dieting success--losing weight by easily eating fewer calories. Taking into account the unavoidable problems of day-to-day life that usually lead to diet failure, The Smart Dieter's Cheating Guide helps the reader develop and adopt useful, concrete strategies for successful weight loss. Unlike any other diet book, The Smart Dieter's Cheating Guide lays out the truth. Other diet books do not even mention their astronomical failure rates. Since the demands of real life distract us from the discipline of dieting, diets that force us to slavishly count calories or prepare special food invariably lead to cheating and failure. With The Smart Dieter's Cheating Guide we come to understand how many of us use denial of reality, projection and rationalization to sabotage our weight loss efforts. Then with increased awareness of how we think about eating, we come to master a few simple hard to forget principles and techniques that become part of us and enable us to achieve goal after goal in the war for weight control.Each of us develops our own system for sensible, easier food choices within the complexity and stress of real life.
