EatingDisordersBlogs.com, Karen Koenig, January 10, 2011 'If you have been willing to spend hundreds of dollars on pills or special diets plans less than $20 on a book that just may well change your life is worth a try.' Kerri O'Connor, Examiner.com, May 9, 2011 'It's ["'The Self-Compassion Diet"'] wonderful, and I can openheartedly suggest you check it out. This is one of the kindest and most practice-based books I've come across in a long time. Geared not only to the reader interested in weight loss, Ms. Fain addresses eating disorders and body image issues with loving-kindness.' Janice Lynne Lundy, www.awakeisgood.com, January 18, 2011 'Mindful eating is something you could learn and practice on your own.

Sophie Dembling, suitupandshowup.blogspot.com, January 14, 2011 'Certainly not your typical diet book, The Self-Compassion Diet proves that loving kindness to yourself is more effective than any diet food or miracle diet you'll lose weight all while gaining respect and love for yourself.'

"Just about everyone who has dieted knows that traditional diets with self abuse and deprivation are bound to fail in the long run. In contrast, Jean Fain's compassionate approach to weight loss is accepting and transforming. This book helps turn past diet abuses into present-day understanding and emotional sanity. I recommend The Self-Compassion Diet to everyone struggling with weight and self-abuse problems." Jean Antonello, RN, BSN, author of "Breaking Out of Food Jail" "Most books about eating issues are so deadly serious they make me want to bury my head in a pound of pasta and forget the whole thing. In all my times of dieting, failing, and resolving to be harder on myself, it never occurred to me that not only had that approach not worked, but it didn't feel particularly good. Jean Fain's approach -- trying a little tenderness -- feels much better. Thank you for creating this gentle, sane approach." -Suzan Colon, author of Cherries in Winter. This book will not only transform your waistline, it will change your life." Kristin Neff, Ph.D., author of Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind "If you're tired of losing weight and then regaining more, forget about starting that same-old diet tomorrow. Read this book today." Steve Gurgevich, PhD, author of The Self-Hypnosis Diet "This book is a real gem!" Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance "This delightful handbook moves the diet conversation to a new level. The author, diet expert Jean Fain, gently unravels the mystery behind successful change---self-kindness---and weaves it into a wise, carefully-organized, multifaceted, step-by-step approach to healthy eating." Christopher K. Germer, PhD, author The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion "Jean Fain's engaging writing style, complete with mini-assessments, helpful practices, and case-studies, will help you say goodbye to dieting, once-and-for-all, and feel good in the process." Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD, author of Intuitive Eating "The Self-Compassion Diet by Jean Fain blends eastern meditative techniques and western psychology for a gentle, comprehensive approach to weight loss. These techniques will help many people of any weight to be calmer and happier with their lives."

Ms Fain's speaking voice is slow, her diction very good, and her tone calm and soothing. Her voice is pleasant to listen to, especially during meditations. The pace is appropriate for inner work.
I'm quite auditory so I do well listening to voice (rather than reading a book) therefore I like listening to this audio set more than I like reading her book. I have learned from these recordings and I think I will be able to achieve my goals.
Within the chapters, Fain not only gives readers information on re-framing negative self-talk, but also provides exercises for readers to practice re-scripting their own unique destructive self-talk. In addition, she gently guides you to set attainable goals, to ask questions and to build a compassionate community for support.
Fain clearly states early on that this is not a diet book. It is not a quick fix. What she does offer in abundance are recipes for self-compassion. These helpful guidelines are rarely included in weight loss books.
This self-compassion approach feels good. It feels good in a way that most dieters rarely experience. Fain offers four different routes to get the results you are looking for-weight loss. For this reader, it made more sense to read straight through rather than pick a particular route. However, any approach works and there is plenty of compassionate guidance to navigate your way through the book.
There are no good food/bad food lists, nor are there weights and measurements or calorie counting. She helps readers set attainable and do-able goals and compassionately guides you to appreciate your talents, inner beauty and sense of self. Although she does make healthful food recommendations, recommendations are all that they are. More importantly, you are encouraged to listen to your hunger, what you are actually hungry for and to honor your hunger through insightful awareness.
Jean Fain is a psychotherapist whose professional and personal research found that self-compassion as a basis for changing ones relationship to food works to promote mindful eating. In addition, she found that when self-compassion is combined with self-hypnosis, weight loss results are even greater. Through self-compassion, insightful meditation and self-hypnosis exercises, she guides you to a path that leads to healthier eating, and ultimately weight loss.
As a dietitian specializing in eating disorders, I found this book beautifully and compassionately written. I have already recommended it to numerous patients as much of the work in my practice revolves around learning the art of self-compassion. It has already been added to my list of recommended books for patients who are working on non-dieting themselves to a healthier relationship to their bodies, food and weight.
There are four main components: self-compassion, hypnosis and relaxation, mindfulness, and social support. In each section, the author provides several exercises and tools so that you can find the approach that works best for you. Because I've been a binge eater for so long (not because I love food--I actually often find myself hating it--but because going into that trance state of the binge and stuffing down carbs and sugar and fat temporarily relieve the overwhelming anxiety I so often cope with), I've never figured out how to NOT slip back into it when I'm stressed and anxious. This book has given me so many great ideas on what to do and how to view my disorder--ideas I've never thought of before and am glad to be aware of since the self-hatred route OBVIOUSLY has never worked. I don't feel completely alone in my struggle anymore.
For me, the mindfulness part is the most challenging--paying attention to your body's hunger and fullness signals, not eating in front of the TV (which I've always done) or with other distractions, actually chewing your food rather than inhaling it so rapidly that you gag yourself (I'm embarrassed to admit my dog and I have this in common...). A lot of people (including physicians) suggest bariatric surgery as a solution to binge eating disorder, but I don't buy it--many of us would just "emotional eat" our way out of a smaller stomach in a matter of months. Our eating disordered mindset HAS to change before anything else will. This book addresses every aspect of that I could possibly conceive. It's like having a wise and compassionate protector in your home, encouraging you whenever you need her. I've always dreamed of having a normal relationship with food and my body, and thanks to this book, it finally seems possible.
