Diäten sind keine Lösung für Gewichtsprobleme. Im Gegenteil, sie sind der sichere Weg zu dauerhaftem Übergewicht. Die Psychotherapeutin Doris Wolf zeigt in diesem Ratgeber, wie seelisches Befinden und Essverhalten zusammenhängen, wie das Wunschgewicht ohne qualvolle Selbstkasteiung erreicht werden kann und wie Übergewichtige aus dem unseligen Teufelskreis "Diät - Fressanfall - Schuldgefühle - Zunehmen" aussteigen können. Damit es wieder möglich wird, ohne Stress und stattdessen genussvoll und mit Freude zu essen.
Übergewicht entsteht nicht von heute auf morgen, und die wachsende Zahl der Kilos hat nicht nur einen Grund, sondern viele. Im Laufe des Lebens verflechten sich diese Ursachen immer mehr – und das sorgt dafür, dass alle Abnehmversuche scheitern. In diesem Buch ermöglicht Ihnen die Autorin einen Blick auf die „Landkarte des Dickwerdens“, sie zeichnet alle Wege für Sie auf, die ins Übergewicht führen. Mit diesem Wissen im Gepäck haben Sie einen wertvollen Kompass in der Hand: eine Orientierungshilfe, die deutlich macht, wo Sie selbst stehen, und welche Pfade Sie dort hingeführt haben. Diese neue Perspektive gibt Ihnen die Chance, Ihren persönlichen Weg aus der Übergewichts-Falle zu finden, denn die meisten Ursachen des Dickseins kann man bewusst verändern.
Viele Frauen haben sich damit abgefunden, dass die Waage ihr Stimmungsmacher ist. Sie akzeptieren das Diktat des Schlankseins und bestrafen sich selbst, wenn sie »gesündigt« haben. Und das beginnt bereits bei zwei, drei Kilo zu viel. Ihre erste Diät machte die Bestsellerautorin Sabine Asgodom mit 13. Heute sagt sie: »Ich werde nie wieder Kalorien zählen. Und ich werde mich nie wieder dafür entschuldigen, dass ich dick bin. Es geht für Frauen nicht wirklich ums Gewicht. Es geht darum, uns neu lieben zu lernen: so, wie wir sind – ob wir nun 50, 80 oder 130 Kilo auf die Waage bringen.« Nachdem sich Sabine Asgodom von gesellschaftlichen Normvorstellungen, Diätzwängen und dem herrschenden Schönheitswahn gelöst hat, genießt sie in vollen Zügen ein Leben aus der Fülle ihrer Talente. Mit dieser Wertschätzung und Lebensfreude gelingt es ihr, alle anderen Frauen anzustecken.

Women Food and God
Author: Geneen Roth
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Millions of us are locked into an unwinnable weight game, as our self-worth is shredded with every diet failure. Combine the utter inefficacy of dieting with the lack of spiritual nourishment and we have generations of mad, ravenous self-loathing women. So says Geneen Roth, in her life-changing new book, Women, Food and God. Since her 1991 bestseller, When Food Is Love, was published, Roth has taken the sum total of her experience and combined it with spirituality and psychology to explain women's true hunger. Roth's approach to eating is that it is the same as any addiction - an activity to avoid feeling emotions. From the first page, readers will be struck by the author's intelligence, humour and sensitivity, as she traces the path of overeating from its subtle beginnings through to its logical end. Whether the drug is booze or brownies, the problem is the same: opting out of life. She powerfully urges readers to pay attention to what they truly need - which cannot be found in a supermarket. She provides seven basic guidelines for eating (the most important is to never diet) and shares reassuring, practical advice that has helped thousands of women who have attended her highly successful seminars. Truly a thinking woman's guide to eating - and an anti-diet book - women everywhere will find insights and revelations on every page.

BESTSELLING BOOK In this inspirational guide, Wayne Dyer, the author of the phenomenal bestsellers Wisdom of the Ages, Pulling Your Own Strings, and Your Erroneous Zones, reveals seven beliefs central to working miracles in our everyday lives. When most of us think of magic, we picture a man in a black cape sawing a woman in half, or a sleight-of-hand card trick. But there's another kind of magic – real magic – that can enrich your life. According to Dyer, real magic means creating miracles in everyday life. Quitting smoking or drinking, achieving new Job success, or finding a happy relationship – these are all miracles because they transcend our perceived limitations. From "creating a miracle mind-set" and achieving change in the areas of personal health, prosperity, and fulfilling love relationships to believing in the magic of miracles on a global scale, Dyer shows us that miracles within our reach and within our own minds. In Real Magic, Dyer teaches us how to achieve a higher level of consciousness. He asks us to imagine what would make us happy, then offers specific strategies for attaining these goals. In every aspect of our individual lives – physical health, finances, intimate relationships, and personal identity – there is always room for a miracle or two. And with Dyer's help, each and every one of us can be a miracle worker.
This book accurately describes the cognitive processes that lead to and are present in someone with an eating disorder. Several case histories on individuals with anorexia nervosa and obesity are presented. It probes the emotional causes and effects of abnormal eating patterns.

I once believed that we only had to put in place the conditions for equality for the remnants of old-fashioned sexism in our culture to wither away. I am ready to admit that I was wrong.' Empowerment, liberation, choice. Once the watchwords of feminism, these terms have now been co-opted by a society that sells women an airbrushed, highly sexualised and increasingly narrow vision of femininity. Drawing on a wealth of research and personal interviews, LIVING DOLLS is a straight-talking, passionate and important book that makes us look afresh at women and girls, at sexism and femininity - today.

Overcoming Night Eating Syndrome
Author: Kelly C. Allison, Albert J. Stunkard, Sara L. Thier
Publisher: New Harbinger Publications
The statistics are powerful and alarming: Perhaps as many as 6 million Americans suffer from night eating syndrome, or NES, a newly identified eating disorder which describes behavior patterns in which an individual obsessively consumes more than half of his or her daily caloric intake after eight o'clock in the evening. More significant is the further finding that more than 33 percent of morbidly obese individuals, persons who are 100 or more pounds overweight, are affected by this disorder. Experts agree that NES shares characteristics of not only eating disorders but also sleep and mood disorders. Sufferers tend to exhibit symptoms such as feelings of anxiety and guilt, insomnia, or interrupted sleep. Typical NES behaviors include absent appetite during the day, a consistent pattern of eating more food after dinner than during the meal itself, and recurrent episodes of waking and eating throughout the night. This book offers a step-by-step strategy for managing and overcoming this disorder. From this book, you will first learn to identify the signs of NES, and then use journaling exercises to discover what automatic thoughts surround your night eating. Having identified the problematic behaviors, you'íll find out how to break theses patterns with healthier food choices, more structured mealtimes, and a series of relaxation and visualization techniques.

Sport and Women
Author: Gertrud Pfister, Ilse Hartmann-Tews
Although female athletes are successful in all types of sport, in many countries sport is still a male domain. This book examines and compares the sporting experiences of women from different countries around the world and offers the first systematic and cross-cultural analysis of the topic of women in sport. Sport and Women presents a wealth of new research data, including in-depth case-studies of 16 countries in North and South America, Asia, Eastern and Western Europe and Africa. In addition, the book offers comparative assessments of the extent to which women are represented in global sport and the opportunities that women have to participate in decision-making processes in sport. The book illuminates a wide range of key international issues in women's sport, such as cultural barriers to participation and the efficacy of political action. It is therefore essential reading for anybody with an interest in the sociology, culture and politics of sport.
