Self-Love: Your Greatest Guide on the Path to Healthy Weight

The secret to sustainable weight loss isn’t counting calories or depriving yourself at the dinner table. Jean Fain tells us it’s about cultivating awareness and self-acceptance wherever you are. With The Self-Compassion Diet, this Harvard Medical School–affiliated psychotherapist prescribes a practical program for transforming the way you think and feel about food and your whole self—a shift that, paradoxically, inspires physical change.

Combining loving-kindness, self-hypnosis, and other winning weight-loss strategies, The Self Compassion Diet is available in two complementary formats to help you naturally progress toward genuine self-acceptance and a healthy, sustainable weight.

With more than 30 different tools including quizzes, breathing exercises, and visualizations, the book explores four powerful weight-loss methods. The audio edition guides you through 11 key practices described in the book. Used together, this powerful combination can speed learning and boost success. Additional topics include:

  • How to appreciate the everyday activity of eating, and learn to trust your body’s signals that it’s nourished
  • Gradual change—a guided visualization for developing mindful eating habits
  • A meditation for getting to know the diet coach who knows you best—your compassionate inner advisor

“Most dieters try to ‘kill cravings’ and break habits with self-discipline,” teaches Fain. “Self-kindness can help quiet the shame that traditional diets instill, and establish a harmonious relationship with food.” The Self Compassion Diet book and audio offer a treasury of heart-opening mind-body teachings and practices for improving the way you live, breathe, and eat.

The CD was too slow moving and put me to sleep. I was disappointed in the CD's, and did not learn anything new. (Posted on July 5, 2013)

I'm sure the content of the sound downloads are as good as the book or her YouTube videos.

But I never got to find out because I could not download them in a form I could hear on my PC or ipad. The customer service woman was very patient and gave good ideas. But neither of us could figure it out. Odd. Seems like a simple matter for a sound company. (Posted on January 13, 2013)

Review for The Self-Compassion Diet Review by RG

Rating

The content is decent, but the reader's delivery of the material is so distracting, that although I keep trying to listen to it, I am just not able to go with the meditations and hypnosis sessions. Her annunciations on the last words don't feel natural and the audio quality makes it so you can hear all of her mouth noises. Really unpleasant when you've got headphones on. If you are sensitive to the energy and sound of people's voices, this may not work for you. I much prefer Steven Gurgevich's "Self-Hypnosis" diet. He's got a very flowy and gentle delivery of similar material. (Posted on August 21, 2012)

Review for The Self-Compassion Diet Review by Tr Ware

This is an audio COMPANION to the book, rather than the audiobook. It's true that her voice is strangely slow, but i really only use the audio for the self-hypnosis trances--the most important part of the book. (Posted on December 12, 2011)

Review for The Self-Compassion Diet Review by Rick Raab-Faber

(This refers to the audio download)
I liked the basic concept. However, the reading was absolutely awful. Jean Fain has a nice tone, but she lingers on the final syllable of every third word and pauses. Very distracting -- I was unable to listen to more than the first 20 minutes. It felt as though the author was reading the material for the first time. Sounds True should re-record this one. (Or give me a credit for a future download.) This is the first time I've been really disappointed with a Sounds True download. (Posted on September 19, 2011)
