They offer a radically new approach with practical exercises based on acceptance, self-compassion, and behavior change. The book conveys hope, outlines a realistic way of living a valued life, and takes a functional approach toward weight regulation and a healthy lifestyle. Read this book if you are concerned about your shape and weight: choose life! Ata Ghaderi, professor of clinical psychology at Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden"


Have you tried every diet or weight loss plan under the sun, but still can’t manage to lose weight and keep it off? You aren’t alone. Each year, Americans spend billions of dollars on weight-loss products, yet we continue to have the highest obesity rate in the world. After trying and failing countless times, you have to begin to wonder, “What am I doing wrong?”

The problem with most fad diets is that they only attack the symptom of the problem, not the cause. No matter how much you try to deny yourself the food you crave, you always end up reverting back to bad habits. You might even lose weight initially, but more often than not you’ll gain it back—with a couple extra pounds to boot! In order to make real change in your life, you need to change the way you think about food, weight, and what’s most important to you.

The Diet Trap offers proven-effective methods based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you develop mindful eating habits, self-compassion, and a greater understanding of what it means to live a valued life. ACT is a values-based therapy that has been proven effective for the treatment of weight loss. Because ACT encourages you to accept and experience uncomfortable emotions—rather than succumb to emotional eating—it helps you to stay on your path to lose weight, while also helping you develop compassion toward yourself, no matter how much you weigh.

Written by two researchers in the field of ACT, this book offers evidence-based solutions to help you fundamentally change the way you think about food, so that you can successfully lose weight, get healthy, and live a happy, fulfilling life without costly and frustrating fad diets.

HASH(0x9db20378) von 5 Sternen The Answer to a Terribly Long Battle 20. März 2014
Von Monetta Harr - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is the way I look at it: You can either invest time and many bucks into seeing a therapist, or you can read The Diet Trap. I have had horrible issues with food (bingeing) all my life and I am in my 60s. Lost weight (50 pounds on Weight Watchers several years ago) and gained it all back when emotional issues reared their head. Nothing has gotten to help me actually stop bingeing -- until this book. In the first chapter this line: "If you want to avoid something, you have to constantly be looking for it to make sure you're avoiding it. This is a problem." Yes. I am so sick of waking up thinking, am I bingeing today or am I being good today? This ACT approach (acceptance and commitment therapy) isn't about finding the reasons why I binge; it helps me get rid of all the rules I have put on myself about eating and accept that healthy eating isn't a prison sentence. That there is nothing wrong with me, that there is a wonderful life waiting for me without the dullness created by excess carbs and sugar. That there is nothing in me that needs fixing, getting away from the terrible idea of reaching a certain diet goal and then life will be great. Because it won't be. The book is written in a calming and reassuring way, so I felt like I was in the authors' office, listening to them talk to me. There are written exercises to help you explore everything from how you talk to yourself to how do you want to live your life. I am weighing myself once a week and using a phone app MyNetDiary to track what I eat and my exercise. I like that it analyzes my food so I can easily see how certain foods or meals affect my journey. I used to be afraid of food but not any more. My husband and are going out of town for a long weekend, the first trip since I've read this book, and I'm not afraid of losing control with food. I have every confidence I will return home feeling good about myself, not bloated from bingeing. And that is a whole new take on life.

HASH(0x9da80378) von 5 Sternen Much Needed Look at the Real Root of Overeating 30. Januar 2014
Von Talvi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The Diet Trap is a well written, instructive book that intends to get to the root of the emotional problem behind overeating. While I felt the concepts and especially focus were sound, it ended up not being a book I could follow. As such, I would rate it a 5-star book for others but unfortunately, I have to balance that against the 1 star I would have to give for it not working for me, personally. So I will rate it 4 stars in the end because I do believe many would benefit from this and stop the yo-yo diets that just don't work for them (because those diets address the physical needs only and not the psychological). I think it is high time those who are overweight address the emotional/psychological reasons for the condition.

The book is a lot like sitting in therapy sessions, with writing exercises replacing talking to a psychiatrist. To really confront the problem emotional areas, the book requires you to keep a journal and write in it frequently, using specific probing questions and your own thoughts to analyze and then free yourself from emotional constraints that keep you from succeeding (at overeating or other subjects). Despite what sounds like a clinical approach, the book is very friendly and definitely not intrusive. It's like having your own personal, non-judgmental, understanding cheerleader.

The foundation of the book is a program used to treat other emotional issue: ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). At its heart, the book/therapy is learning to stop beating oneself up and accept yourself as unique, with imperfections. That stops you from needing food as an emotional crutch to make yourself feel better after you constantly put yourself down. The commitment portion sets up the ground work to be successful at completing projects you have in mind.

For me, I think I probably was lost at the point where I was to thank my organs for working all these years for me (thank your heart, thank your kidneys, etc.). It's all a part of acceptance - learning to love oneself. But I just have too high a threshold of tolerance to that approach, unfortunately. As with meditation, yoga, etc., I just don't find them beneficial (perhaps I am avoiding acceptance, who knows?). But I hope others don't use my example as a reason not to use the book. There is a LOT of really good things to be found in here that are applicable well beyond overeating.

Received as an ARC from the publisher.

Well worth the read. Do the exercises and you'll be well on your way to understanding why you keep getting tripped up by the same old metaphorical potholes time and again. Learn how to conduct yourself in a manner consistent with what you value most.
