Publisher's Summary

From internationally renowned intuitive counselor, life coach, motivational speaker, and author Colette Baron-Reid, a four-step, eight-week program for managing empathy overload - the hidden cause of unwanted weight gain.

Through her own personal experience and work with thousands of clients, Colette Baron-Reid understands the real reason many of us struggle to lose weight and keep it off. It isn't that we don't know what to eat or that we don't have enough willpower; it's that we are responding to feeling too much.

Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much focuses on the keys to weight loss for sensitive people: managing empathy, setting and maintaining healthy boundaries, eating to support well-being, and dealing with challenging situations that can trigger disordered eating. With a simple, practical program, Colette shows you how to release the extra pounds and create a new, healthy relationship with your body, your weight, and food.

A gentile approach that, when applied, makes sense

This book provides an approach to changing your mental perspective, not a diet. Colette Baron-Reid is a life coach that suggests unique ways to make time for yourself each day to focus on what is going on with you so that you don't just grab another snack. Some of her suggestions may seem weird or a bit much at first (daily salt baths!), but TRY THEM! I tried most of the things suggested and it was really amazing and what a calming transformation I had. Some of these things I like so much I will keep a life-long practices (salt baths!). She offers lots of good questions for journal exercises which are time consuming, but really get you thinking. Following this plan will give you a really good shift to start seeing patterns in your life differently. Highly recommended (and not just for people who want to lose weight).

Doesn't work as an audiobook

What disappointed you about Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much?

The material presented here is a step by step program to follow methodically, so it really needs a workbook for reference. I was constantly bookmarking areas that I'd need to return to to make notes when I wasn't driving. Also, I felt that the section on EFT would have benefited from a visual presentation.

Would you recommend Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much to your friends? Why or why not?

Not as an audiobook. I can't speak to the effectiveness of the program itself.

What about Colette Baron-Reid’s performance did you like?

The author reads well, which in my experience is unusual.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

What a waste of my monthly credit.

Would you try another book from Colette Baron-Reid and/or Colette Baron-Reid?

No, her approach to weight loss was hinky and ridiculous.

Has Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not completely.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance was the least of the books problems.

What character would you cut from Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much?

The author.

Any additional comments?

I waded through about 2 chapters and just stopped. It was just silly.
