How to Retrain Your Appetite

Lose Weight Permanently Eating All Your Favourite Foods

by Helen McCarthy



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Eat in tune with your body and lose weight—WITHOUT giving up the foods you love!
Work with, not against, your body. This self-help book, written by an expert on eating disorders, helps you reconnect with your natural hunger and fullness signals so you’ll know when to put down the fork. It’s the antithesis of “going on a diet” or “clean eating,” because it allows you to take one manageable step at a time while still enjoying your favorite foods . . . not a prescribed menu. Dr. Helen McCarthy’s unique retraining program bridges biology and psychology, putting the focus on altering specific habits, while also taking into account our resistance to change. She presents her concept of “the appetite pendulum,” including the science of taste buds and digestion, and explains how to eat only when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full, establish a new routine, tackle your saboteurs, prevent emotional eating, and maintain your new weight.

Dr. Helen McCarthy is an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and has a D. Phil in the psychology of eating disorders from Oxford University. She is an expert in providing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and integrates mainstream approaches with cutting-edge techniques from other areas of psychology. Her clinical career working with individuals spans 28 years and she evolved her appetite retraining method over six years. She runs a weekly blog on her website and her writing has appeared in the Sun, Women’s Health, and Marie Claire.
