"Named one of '10 New Diet Books for 2011" --TIME.com "Named one of the 'Most Popular Diets for 2012" --LIFESCRIPT.com "Named one of '8 Must-Read Books On Mindful Eating" --PSYCHOLOGYTODAY.com "The Self-Compassion Diet is full of practical wisdom about how to set yourself up for eating and weight loss success using guided visualization, meditation, positive self-talk, cognitive restructuring, writing and journal exercises. Fain sprinkles quizzes throughout the book, teaches with cases studies from her decades of counseling troubled eaters, and provides page after page of exercises which will help disregulated eaters learn to expand their thinking in order to improve their eating." --EatingDisordersBlogs.com, Karen Koenig "If you have been willing to spend hundreds of dollars on pills or special diets plans - less than $20 on a book that just may well change your life is worth a try." --Kerri O'Connor, Examiner.com "It's ['The Self-Compassion Diet'] wonderful, and I can openheartedly suggest you check it out. This is one of the kindest and most practice-based books I've come across in a long time. Geared not only to the reader interested in weight loss, Ms. Fain addresses eating disorders and body image issues with loving-kindness." --Janice Lynne Lundy, www.awakeisgood.com "This delightful handbook moves the diet conversation to a new level. The author, diet expert Jean Fain, gently unravels the mystery behind successful change---self-kindness---and weaves it into a wise, carefully-organized, multifaceted, step-by-step approach to healthy eating." --Christopher K. Germer, PhD, author The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion "Jean Fain's engaging writing style, complete with mini-assessments, helpful practices, and case-studies, will help you say goodbye to dieting, once-and-for-all, and feel good in the process." --Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD, author of Intuitive Eating "The Self-Compassion Diet by Jean Fain blends eastern meditative techniques and western psychology for a gentle, comprehensive approach to weight loss. These techniques will help many people of any weight to be calmer and happier with their lives." --Deirdre Barrett, author of Supernormal Stimuli "Mindful eating is something you could learn and practice on your own. But like any skill, professional advice and guidance is always useful because you don't know what you don't know. I like this book ['The Self-Compassion Diet'], and it's already given me food for thought." --Sophie Dembling, suitupandshowup.blogspot.com "Certainly not your typical diet book, The Self-Compassion Diet proves that loving kindness to yourself is more effective than any diet food or miracle diet - you'll lose weight all while gaining respect and love for yourself." --Michele Borboa, MS, sheknows.com "Just about everyone who has dieted knows that traditional diets with self abuse and deprivation are bound to fail in the long run. In contrast, Jean Fain's compassionate approach to weight loss is accepting and transforming. This book helps turn past diet abuses into present-day understanding and emotional sanity. I recommend The Self-Compassion Diet to everyone struggling with weight and self-abuse problems." --Jean Antonello, RN, BSN, author of Breaking Out of Food Jail "Most books about eating issues are so deadly serious they make me want to bury my head in a pound of pasta and forget the whole thing. In all my times of dieting, failing, and resolving to be harder on myself, it never occurred to me that not only had that approach not worked, but it didn't feel particularly good. Jean Fain's approach -- trying a little tenderness -- feels much better. Thank you for creating this gentle, sane approach. -Suzan Colon, author of Cherries in Winter. This book will not only transform your waistline, it will change your life." --Kristin Neff, Ph.D., author of Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind "If you're tired of losing weight and then regaining more, forget about starting that same-old diet tomorrow. Read this book today." --Steve Gurgevich, PhD, author of The Self-Hypnosis Diet "This book is a real gem!" --Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance
