Dr. Dorie McCubbrey knows firsthand how difficult it can be to struggle with weight and self-image: she began dieting at age ten, and spent fifteen years battling anorexia, bulimia, and overeating. A trained therapist and author of the successful self-published Dr. Dorie's Don't Diet Book , she approaches weight problems by exploring patients' mental attitudes toward themselves and their appearance. In this book, she explains her theory of ?intuitive self-care,? helping readers to reconnect with themselves spiritually and emotionally as they work to free themselves from guilt, worry, and unnecessary emotional attachments to food. With its holistic approach, How Much Does Your Soul Weigh? applies to all eating and weight problems - from anorexia to obesity. By confronting underlying issues such as stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as identifying the ?games? they play with themselves about weight, readers can form a healthy sense of themselves and lose weight naturally. Drawing on her own inspirational success story, and case studies, anecdotes, and examples from her own thriving weight-counseling practice (she boasts a 95% success rate), Dr. Dorie sets forth the four primary personality ?archetypes? -?Rigid Rachel,? ?Searching Sarah,? ?Escapist Eric,? and ?Busy Beth? - that experience weight problems; the difference between ?mental? and ?body? weight; the ?7 Secrets of Naturally Thin People,? a self-assessment quiz that will tell you how much your soul weighs, and ?Recipes? for success -- tips and exercises that can easily be incorporated into daily life.McCubbrey, Dorie is the author of 'How Much Does Your Soul Weigh?
