The Eden Diet concept is amazingly simple and relies on the power of your God-given hunger and fullness signals to guide your eating, in addition to reliance on your Lord and Savior for emotional and spiritual support.
Over time, many dieters learn to ignore their physical feelings of hunger and fullness and instead depend on non-physical "external" cues, like the time on the clock, their emotions (like stress, anger, anxiety, depression, and boredom), or the sight, smell, or thought of food. Over time, they completely forget how to eat according to the natural hunger and fullness signals that God programmed into their bodies in the beginning. The result is they gain weight, because you just can't improve on the system God intended in the first place.
The Eden Diet plan is about rejecting the diet mentality and re-learning how to eat the way God originally intended: with joy rather than guilt. You get to eat not only the healthy food that your body craves for nourishment, but also foods such as cheeseburgers, pizza, and desserts. The key is to eat your treats in smaller portions than the world would have you believe is normal and only when you're physically rather than emotionally hungry. When you're emotionally hungry, Dr. Rita gives you specific tools for how to employ your faith to find willpower against unnecessary eating.
Some of the tools Dr. Rita provides in The Eden Diet: Condensed Version include the full book introduction, abbreviated chapter-by-chapter summaries taken from the full-length Eden Diet book, an overview of The Apple Test, which is your main tool for distinguishing physical from emotional hunger).
