Publisher's Summary

Do you regularly deprive yourself, succumb to temptation, feel guilty, and then start the process all over again? If so, you need this audiobook. Dr. Michelle May will guide you out of the food-focused, diet-driven downward spiral that leads you to eat, repent, and repeat. She offers a powerful alternative: stop being afraid of food and start eating mindfully and joyfully.

No more rigid rules, strict exercise regimens, questionable drugs, or food substitutes. This audiobook will soon have you eating the foods you love without fear, without guilt, and without bingeing. Create the healthy, energetic, and vibrant life you deserve.

Called ''the antidote to ineffective dieting,'' Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat is a rare prescription for optimal health of the body, mind, heart, and spirit. After twenty years of yo-yo dieting, physician Michelle May discovered a peaceful, joyful relationship with food. Now Dr. May will show you how to resolve mindless and emotional eating and break free from your eat-repent-repeat cycle.

With uncommon sense and a powerful mind-body approach to healthy living, Dr. May helps you rediscover when, what, and how much to eat without restrictive rules. You'll learn the truth about nutrition and how to stop using exercise to earn the right to eat. You'll finally experience the pleasure of eating the foods you love - hout guilt or bingeing.

In down-to-earth language that conveys her compassion for people who are sick of overeating and dieting, Dr. May offers you unconventional strategies for eating fearlessly and mindfully. With your new, powerful patterns of thinking, you ll live the balanced, vibrant life you desire.

Looking for Am I Hungry? What to Do When Diets Don't Work? We are sorry but that book is now out of print and has been replaced by the greatly revised, updated, and expanded new version, Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: How to Break Your Eat-Repent-Repeat Cycle. While Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat is based on the same key concepts to guide listeners out of yo-yo dieting, it also includes new tools and strategies, new chapters and topics (including head hunger, emotional eating, fearless eating, mindful eating, and mindful exercise), personal stories from Dr. May and her patients, dozens of recipes from Dr. May s husband, Chef Owen, and much more.

    "Incredible book, absolutely terrible narration"
    Would you listen to Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: How to Break Your Eat-Repent-Repeat Cycle again? Why?

    I will definitely re-read my paper copy many, many times. But the audio version? I doubt it.


    What other book might you compare Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: How to Break Your Eat-Repent-Repeat Cycle to and why?

    Definitely in the same lines as Geneen Roth's work, much of which is available on audible. Geneen Roth also addresses overeating or restrictive eating with mindful eating tools. Geneen Roth is funnier and more personal--it's more of a storytelling, whereas Dr. May's book has a more clinical feel and has a lot more action steps. Geneen Roth is definitely a better narrator--she's very funny and engaging. Since her stories are more personal and warmer it's much more entertaining from an audiobook perspective. However, Michelle May's work delves much more into the "how to fix it" side of things, which is ultimately more useful.I think the two of them combined make for an amazing support team for one looking to deal with chronic eating issues.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I'm an audio-book junkie, and I've listened to so many. But this is truthfully the worst narration I've ever heard. I was shocked. I don't mean any disrespect to Dr. May, who is brilliant. The content in the book itself is incredible. But she sounds like a robot. It's like your iphone came to life and is talking to you. I thought I would get over it and get used to it, like I normally do if I don't like a narrator, but it's entirely not possible to with this. If I hadn't already bought and loved the paper version of the book (I wanted the audio version to keep me motivated while out walking and/or driving) I would have no idea how good this book was. What a shame the narration is so terrible.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    2001- A Space Odyessy.


    Any additional comments?

    The audio version of the book should be redone, with narration that makes the excellent content listenable. Also, I'm surprised that the recipes at the back of the book aren't available in a PDF download for those that have only the audio version. Other than those complaints, for actual content, this book delivers. Michelle May has addressed the Eat-Repent-Repeat cycle in an intelligent, nuanced, useful perspective. It's an incredible tool and one that is changing my life. So for that,I am very grateful. But I will stick to the paper version!

    Story
    "Audio version skips several chapters"
    If you could sum up Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat in three words, what would they be?

    Excellent message with many actionable tips for mindful eating and mindful fitness. Definitely an important message to counter today's obsessive dieting mentality. I'm grateful for Dr. May's work!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat?

    The audio version skips several chapters (6?) simply because of a few short tables being "unsuitable for audio". I bought the hard copy to access those chapters. However, this issue could have been remedied by providing PDF versions of the tables online. The content of those chapters would have been great to hear in the audio, as the book is not complete without them.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I appreciate that Dr. May chose to read her own book - no easy task. But I personally found myself working hard to be patient with her vocals. Her voice is very calm, making it hard at times to maintain my interest. Plus, the material sometimes comes off as dry in the audio. I think if I were in one of her workshops in person, her voice would be just fine - maybe even awesome. Because audio is limited (no visual or tactile connection), I found the vocals to be a bit dull and boring.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Shift: The Anti-dieting story


    Any additional comments?

    The book is worth it! The message is very powerful. If you won't get through a physical book, you would do just fine with buying the audio and then supplementing with the missing chapters in her physical book.
