Breaking Up With Food

...a novel of passionate weight loss. It tells a story that begins with an unintended look in the mirror and ends in triumph.

It’s for any woman who has trouble dieting; it’s for those who can’t stay on a diet, for those who stay on but at some point gain it all back. It’s for those who keep trying and failing, for those who keep dreaming about losing weight, and for those who have given up the dream and want it back.

Maria’s weight-loss journey is a story of suspense, mystery, daring, and victory.

Welcome to the world of Maria. She is an “everywoman”, yet as unique and quirky a person as you’d ever want to meet. In her own way, Maria struggled mightily against a weight problem for many years before she was able to solve it. This is an inside peek, for weight loss—permanent weight loss—always comes from the inside out. Its path is strewn with secrets revealed, and that is what makes it a deep and uplifting adventure.

The tide of change rises and falls, so Maria’s story is not a smooth story. Here we have framed the essential moments for you in vignette style, rather than continuous moments in time. Some involve multiple fractures of the heart, some are moments of incredible skill and daring. Some moments are big, some moments are small; every one of them matters.

So maybe your name is not Maria, and maybe you don’t have 60 pounds to lose like she did—maybe you have only 20 pounds you want to lose, maybe only 10, or maybe you have 35 or 75. But, do you ever feel like you lose your self-control when you’re on a diet? Do you ever feel deprived? Do you berate yourself if you are on a diet and then you cheat? Do you get cravings? Do you feel empty, hungry all the time? Do things in life get too much for you so you can’t keep attention directed toward your diet? Do you ever feel like you just need a reward and you do it with food? Do you have a lot of trouble asking for help? Do you get impatient, hopeless, like it all takes too much time and energy?

Do you lose your motivation when times get rough? Do you get discouraged on diet after diet and then give up? Do you find yourself back in the same old rut, eating the way you don’t want to eat, feeling the way you don’t want to feel, looking the way you don’t want to look?

Maybe you experience one of these things or some of these things or all of these things. If so, you’ll want to hear what Maria has to say. She was one of those broken, lovely people, which is all of us, isn’t it? She might be just the one to leave you a message, break into your experience, help you discover an underlying power in yourself, a courage waiting to be used.

So Dear Dieter, be encouraged. Maria’s Last Diet is just as much about you. Maria found answers, but the truth is, you have the answers too. The trick is to be interested in them, to find out about them, to hear them.

Above all, don’t put down this book in despair and think someone like Maria can do it but you can’t. Her story is simple actually, pretty straightforward. She’s not unique, not a perfect character, she’s not blessed with extraordinary abilities you don’t have. That’s what you need to know. You may not believe in yourself right now, but listen to what Maria has to say. You can look over her shoulder and see a lot that will help.
