Use proven psychological strategies to reduce cravings, eliminate overeating, “shrink” your stomach and help you eat in moderation.
• Cut Up To 90% Of Your Snacking Without Feeling Cheated. Use Habituation and Systematic Desensitization to dramatically cut how much you eat without feeling deprived. Psychologists use these treatments to get people off Vicodin and Xanax. Imagine how well they work on chips and cookies.
• Control Your Cravings With Delayed Gratification Techniques That Teach Discipline Without Suffering. Based on famed psychologist Walter Mischel’s “Marshmallow” experiments, they will painlessly help you master self-control.
• Eat Healthier Without Forcing Yourself To Eat What You Don’t Like. Use the “Nutrilicious” concept to make healthier choices without sacrificing taste or preferences.
This book is about how I lost 14 pounds and 2 waist sizes and kept it off for 25 years without ever going on a diet. Inspired by Walter Mischel’s iconic The Marshmallow Test, Eat It Later is a science-based, psychological approach to developing weight-reducing eating habits. It chronicles how I did it and lays out a plan for how you can too.
Learn Techniques For Eating Less Without Feeling Deprived.
Today, I don't eat three Oreos at a sitting and force myself from the table, biting my fist and longing for the 16 I used to eat. I am as satisfied with three as I used to be with 16. Habituation, desensitization and delayed gratification techniques stopped my mindless eating and painlessly “shrank” my stomach so that I could eat much smaller portions without feeling cheated or deprived.
Like most people, I thought, “eating in moderation” was code for “you’ll never feel full again.” I thought portion control meant pain management. I thought volume reduction meant perpetual dissatisfaction. I was wrong. If you make the kind of tiny, systematic reductions I show you in this book, your body will adapt to the new normal without any pain or suffering.
Learn The Keys To Self-Control.
You are not going to get a list of foods to eat or avoid. Or recipes or meal suggestions. I am not going to ask you to count calories, fat, carbs or sugar. I am not going to propose some wild new theory about weight gain. I am simply going to show you how to permanently change the amount of food you eat. And to do it with strategies identified by researchers and psychologists as the keys to self-control—habituation, systematic desensitization and delayed gratification techniques.
Ever Finish A Bagel And Say, “Why Did I Eat It–I Wasn’t That Hungry?”
You do that because you don’t have an intuitive eating system that separates no/low cravings from high cravings. Eat It Later shows you mindful eating techniques that take about 3 seconds to separate low from medium and high cravings.
Say Goodbye To Will Power Fatigue.
Diets force you to white-knuckle your way through 5-alarm cravings and leave the table feeling hungry and deprived. But with habituation, desensitization and delayed gratification techniques you will never experience will power fatigue because there is nothing to be fatigued about—you will have what you like but through an intuitive eating mindset.

For many, losing weight is a never-ending struggle, especially since our bodies are designed to keep weight on at all costs; it's a matter of survival. But a medical revolution is under way, showing us how to work with our bodies instead of against them to improve nutrition and ignite the natural fat-burning furnaces that lie dormant within us.
Drawing on cutting-edge research about nutrigenomics—the science of how food talks to our genes—Dr. Hyman, author of bestsellers including The Blood Sugar Solution, The Ultra-Mind Solution, UltraPrevention, and The UltraSimple Diet has created a method for losing weight by eating the right foods to detox and manage food allergies.
Food contains information and instructions for our bodies: eat the right foods and send instructions of weight loss and health; eat the wrong foods and send messages of weight gain and disease. After spending the last ten years conducting pioneering, hands-on research with over two thousand patients at Canyon Ranch, one of the world's leading health resorts, Dr. Hyman has discovered the seven fundamental causes of obesity. He has integrated his years of research into this groundbreaking approach to help you rebalance and stabilize your metabolism to maintain weight loss and enjoy lifelong health.
This isn’t a fad diet. Dr. Hyman explains how to customize your personal health and weight-loss program with a streamlined eight-week plan designed to help you lose weight based on your own unique genetic needs. Menus, recipes, and shopping lists, as well as recommendations for vitamins, supplements, and exercise will help you change your lifestyle and be healthy for years to come.
Peter Walsh, the bestselling author of It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff, believes that the secret to successfully losing weight is to forget about calorie counting and weekly weigh-ins. Instead you need to focus on how, why, and where you eat. When it comes to clearing clutter (the fat in our homes) it isn't about the stuff itself, it's about the life you want to live. The same is true for losing weight: It's not about the pounds, it's about living the life you deserve in the body you want.
Using his expert techniques honed from years as a clutter expert and organizational consultant on TLC's Clean Sweep, Peter helps you address how the clutter in your kitchen, your pantry, and your home is directly related to the clutter on your body and negatively affects your ability to lead a full and healthy life. This book shows you how to clean up not just the spaces where you eat, but the routines around them: from planning meals and shopping to dinnertime rituals.
Peter knows all the pitfalls and all the excuses. In Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat? he gives you the tools (and courage) you need to get over all your excuses, face the issues, and make the change to a better life.
This is not a diet book. This is a book about your life -- about creating the healthy life and body you have always imagined for yourself. Peter helps you kick the food-clutter habit forever. You have only one life. Start living it today.
I’ve been somewhere between chubby and thin all my life. It wasn’t until I reached 50 years of age that I made a conscious decision to stop yo-yoing and keep the extra weight off. It does take time to lose weight. I lost a total of 60 pounds and have kept it off for more than 10 years now. I’m a senior and just recently lost another 5 pounds of body fat. I don’t think anyone realizes how hard it is to carry around extra body fat until you become a senior. I don’t try to lose weight anymore but I am trying to build muscle while I lose fat.
Today I weigh the same as I did in High School. I’m working on building muscle these days and that means body weight exercise and Yoga to keep me limber and improve my balance. It’s great to still be able to ride a bike or jog around the neighborhood.
I’ve read hundreds of books, posts and newsletters from health and fitness websites and have done extensive research for this book and found that the science of weight loss is more well-defined today. It’s not as much trial and error as before. Much of what you see on the internet seems to be advertisement for products. Most sites seem to be selling something and most of us are tired of trying diets or pills that don’t work. I want to try and change your mind about losing weight. It may be easier than you thing. There are several good website that offer helpful information free. Check out my list of SOURCES on the last page. There are many good sites I didn’t list, but those on my source page are the ones I used to write this book.
I believe it’s about getting back to basics. Most of us put on body fat when we’re still in school because we eat too much of all the wrong foods. As an adult we add body fat from eating the wrong foods, that’s true, but also because we become less active. In school most of us are into sports, working out every day and as students we do more walking. Now we work at a desk most of the day and are only active on the weekends. Back to basics in short means there’s no short cuts to losing weight. You’ll have to start from scratch; forget everything you thought you knew about losing weight and forget about all those foods you love. The reason why most people aren’t successful losing weight is that they don’t want to give up their old life. They don’t want to give up their favorite foods or the overindulging after work and on weekends. Oh sure, they will sacrifice for a little while, but the thought of never eating those big meals again or those rich foods, that’s too much sacrifice; there must be an easier way.
If you really want to lose the body fat, and keep it off, you have to get healthy and stay healthy the rest of your life. Because it’s not really about losing weight as much as it is about losing the extra body fat that your body has to keep alive and it’s doing nothing for you except to drain your body’s energy. That’s the reason most of us don’t worry about losing weight until their over 50. When you’re over 50 you can feel that loss of energy. Before that most of us still have plenty of energy so we aren’t concerned about our weight.
Being thin and fit is a sign of being healthy and today that helps you in your career, your social life, relationships and gives you more energy to accomplish more.
It doesn’t cost money to lose weight, so anyone regardless of their income can change their life, lose weight and get healthy. I did it without buying any equipment, special meals or any diet pills and I’m going to tell you how.
