Like so many people, Mara Schiavocampo had struggled with weight for most of her life. She tried every diet on the planet, suffered a debilitating eating disorder, joined a bizarre food cult, took dangerous pills, worked out for insane amounts of time - and still tipped the scales at nearly 230 pounds. But more than reaching a healthy weight, Mara wanted peace and freedom from the constant mental torment brought on by food. A healthy and effortless way of life - for the rest of her life.
And that's what she found. While juggling a marriage, new baby, and a budding television career as a correspondent on NBC, Mara "accidentally" stumbled onto a formula that worked for her. She lost 90 pounds in two years and is now stronger and fitter - and, most importantly, happier - than ever.
In Thinspired, Mara shares her weight-loss secrets and the formula for her success plan. Instead of focusing strictly on do's and don'ts, she talks about eliminating the foods that have control over you - whether that's wine, flour products, dairy, or sugar. By following in Mara's footsteps, you'll lose the pounds and gain back your energy, control, health, and happiness.

This book is a good help for those struggling with overeating. As a therapist-intern working with such clients, it left much to be desired... A little slow and not enough depth of coverage.
Immediately when I began reading this book, I felt as thought it was written just for me. I have never felt as connected to another author's story as I did this one. I bought the audiobook after I read the book so I could listen to it as well, and reinforce the helpful information that I got from the book.
I loved the fact that it felt as though I was having a conversation with a friend, rather than just reading a book.
I actually did laugh at how frankly the author spoke at times. I loved it!
I really wish that the author had narrated the book. Having someone else read it takes some of the personal feel away from it.
I was really feeling bad and so shameful of myself before I landed on this book. the really helped me to understand is that what I'm going through secretly....is pretty normal and there are solutions and alternatives.
