Product description

From Amazon

Victoria Moran wasn't always as slim and serene as she appears now. For 33 years, she "lunged" at food, bingeing and dieting, rarely losing weight for more than a few weeks at a time. Then 18 years ago, she adopted the principles of self-acceptance, self-nurturing, and spirituality she describes in this book--and lost 60 pounds for good. She learned to live without obsessing about either weight or food, relying on "grace and good sense."

Moran's 101 "simple secrets"--each two to three pages long--are sometimes obvious, sometimes provocative, sometimes profound. Some, like "accept yourself today," "walk more," and "get a support system" seem self-evident, but Moran digs into the psychological components that might be holding you back. A few seem unusual, such as "in the beginning, eat out" (reason: when you eat in a restaurant, it's clear when the meal is over) and "visit an art museum" (to recognize the beauty of voluptuous women).

Moran's style is warm, welcoming, and strong, like a good friend who has found the answers you seek and won't let you off the hook. Highly recommended for emotional eaters who are ready to change the behavior and attitudes that are stopping them from reaching their goals. --Joan Price

From the Back Cover

"This is the book that everyone plagued with extra pounds has been waiting for. Fresh, clear, compassionate, and--this is the clincher--it works."--Richard Carlson, author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff

"Fit from Within is a down-to-earth, no-nonsense guide to nutrition, weight management, and health. Forget the hype and use what works, with Victoria Moran as your guide."--Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Beyond the Body, Reinventing Medicine, and Healing Words

Are you stuck in the diet rut? Tired of trying one diet after another? Fed up with temporary results and seesawing weight? End the vicious cycle of up-and-down dieting. Now is the time to take control. The key to a happy, healthy, attractive, and reasonable weight is to change yourself from the inside out.

After years of dieting and self-recrimination, Victoria Moran discovered basic truths about weight loss that allowed her to lose sixty pounds and keep it off for eighteen years and counting. In Fit from Within, she shows how you, too, can confront and transform an unhealthy relationship with food into a more fulfilling, diet-free life. Not another diet book, Fit from Within is your guide to changing not only the way you look but also the way you feel about yourself, your life, and your world.

"Victoria Moran offers so many possibilities for how the overeating problem can be gently addressed, from trusting the senses and body wisdom, to focusing on small moments of pleasure to create life change, to appreciating and enjoying food, to making restitution and offering forgiveness."--Dr. Judi Hollis, author of Fat Is a Family Affair

Statistically, heroin addicts have better odds of kicking their habit than yo-yo dieters have of overcoming theirs. With more than 50 percent of Americans overweight, it's clear that the secret to ending the struggle with food, weight, and body image isn't in the latest diet or whatever they're selling on the infomercial channel.

Victoria Moran overcame the odds. After growing up in a weight-conscious household (her father was a diet doctor and her mother worked in a "reducing salon"), she lost weight for the last time eighteen years ago. Moran has found that maintaining a sixty-pound weight loss is more about honesty and courage than about carbs and crunches. Fit from Within reveals precisely how anyone who's willing to change can stop battling food and the state of her thighs and start embracing life instead.

This book is comprised of 101 short, immediately usable essays to help you forge a new relationship with food, activity, your body, and your life. They're presented with the compassion of someone who knows the struggle and with the humor of one who has left it behind.

In Fit from Within, you'll learn how to:

  • Accept yourself as you are
  • Get honest about what you eat
  • Take responsibility, not blame
  • Let your body determine its right size and shape
  • Eat like a healthy human being--not a dieter
  • Change from the inside out so the changes last

Fit from Within is a body-mind-spirit approach. After all, physical changes will only last when the mind and emotions change, too. With the help of this book, you can stop watching your weight and start living your life.
