Michelle May, M.D. has written an amazingly effective book that offers tools enabling the reader to break the all-too-familiar cycle of eating-repenting-repeating and actually changing the whole pleasure and guilt approach to food.

May is a family physician, motivational wellness speaker, author, workshop facilitator, and consultant, and a recovered yo-yo dieter herself. The name of her workshops and her Web site – Am I Hungry? – tells it all. The techniques she teaches allow anyone to bring new tools and approaches to eating and to eliminate mindless consumption that leads to despair, guilt and weight gain.

Her new book, Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat, provides strategies for battling the momentary lapses that lead to uncontrolled eating by discovering exactly what you want – food or something else – what kind of taste you are looking for, and arriving at a point of mindful eating.

The second portion of the book gives the now-thinking eater important information on carbs, fats and protein; the third adds movement – how to increase stamina, flexibility and strength and integrate movement you actually enjoy into your lifestyle. In the final part of the book, May offers varied recipes and health information to round out the non-diet package.

Five of us in all tried May’s techniques, and we all benefited to differing degrees. For me it was the first part – distinguishing between hunger and its object and other needs masquerading as hunger – that was the most effective. Another woman was particularly helped by the section on movement, and a man who needed to lose a sizable number of pounds found what he needed in the information on fats, proteins and carbs. The bottom line is that we have all lost weight during a three-month period, and we all appreciate the difference between a rigid “do-this” diet and a set of questions that allow us to get to the root of what we are doing and make real choices.
