Praise for Am I Hungry?
This team really understands the problems of being overweight and
addresses the real reasons people overeat in the first place. Am I
Hungry? offers strategies and solutions without rules, diets, or
gimmicks. It was like reading a good novel. I didn't want to put it
down, but I didn't want it to end either. I think many chronic dieters
will agree. I can't wait to use it with my clients!
--- LINDA STEAKLEY, M.S., R.D., L.D., Author, FitWeigh and Way To Go Kids Nutrition and Fitness Program
Finally! The truth about losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle. In
Am I Hungry? Michelle May puts into words what needed to be said
for so long: there is no magical quick fix. This is a revolutionary book
that offers common-sense solutions for long-term success.
--- LEN FROMER, M.D.
Am I Hungry? is like fresh air being pumped into an environment polluted by misinformation about diet and exercise! This book is the antidote to the endless grind of dieting, weighing, losing, and gaining. There is something in this book for everyone--young and old, men and women, novices and experts in healthcare. It is balanced and sustainable--unlike most diets. In short, this book is the prescription we have all been waiting for--a prescription for healthy living and joy in our own skin!
--- EDWARD J. CUMELLA, PH.D., Licensed Psychologist, Director of Research and Education; Remuda Treatment Programs for Anorexia and Bulimia, Inc.
This book represents a paradigm shift in the way the medical field
approaches weight loss. I endorse this method completely and
recommend it to all of my patients who are tired of playing the
unsuccessful diet game.
--- REBECCA MORAN, M.D.
Am I Hungry? is a welcome return to sanity in a world gone crazy over
diets. This book draws upon what your body already knows to allow
you to abandon diets forever and rekindle the normal relationship
your body had with food when you were born. I highly recommend
this book and the Am I Hungry? program to those who have struggled
unsuccessfully with diets in the past and want to begin leading a
rational life with regard to food and eating.
--- MARLO J. ARCHER, PH.D., Licensed Psychologist
As an OB-Gyn that has struggled with my weight for years, I have
always known that there was no "quick fix". Am I Hungry? has given
me hope by transforming the way I look at food---and at life.
--- JOEL FALK, M.D.
