Synopsis:

Millions of women are victims of Bad Body Fever, according to Jane Hirschmann and Carol Munter, authors who have discovered that dislike of their bodies is the single most pervasive reason women stay stuck in the diet/binge cycle.

In WHEN WOMEN STOP HATING THEIR BODIES, Hirschmann and Munter explain Bad Body Fever and its resilience and show how "bad body thoughts" are clues to our emotional lives. They explore the difficulties women have when we stop dieting and review the benefits of replacing diets with the demand-feeding approach. And finally, they teach us how to think about our problems rather than eat about them--so that food can take its proper place in our lives.
