With so many diet programs available, most overweight people try one after another, with varying degrees of temporary success, but never succeed in reaching the permanent weight loss they so desperately want. In the bestselling I Wish I Were Thin, I Wish I Were Fat, Michelle Joy Levine, a psychotherapist for over twenty years, uncovers the real reason why most dieters fail: an unconscious yet powerful fear of being thin or a desire to be fat!

Understanding why we overeat is the first step toward a healthy weight and happier life.

I had high hopes for the book since the premise was that if you have an eating problem, you either want to stay fat or are afraid of becoming thin. Makes sense. Then I got into the book.

The book is taken straight from Sigmund Freud. First thing is that, if you have an eating problem, you are trying to recapture the infantile bliss of being fed by your mother. Then your transitional object failed you. Then you are angry because your mother made you poop in the potty instead of your diaper. Then you secretly are jealous of your mother (if you are a woman), want to sleep with your father, and have his baby.

I kid you not. The people the author quotes and the research she presents comes out of the 1930s or before.

And her sage advice? "If you feel the need to eat, wait 10 minutes." That's IT.

I'd advise anyone who is serious about solving their problem to avoid this book, but like I said, if you insist, buy the book used.

Some chapters were good, some were not. I am not into the nuture family excuse; I am more into why I insist on doing this to myself and some reasons hit home.

Anyone who reads Michelle Joy Levine's "I Wish I Were Thin, I Wish I Were Fat," will not find a book filled with recipes and diet tips. Levine's approach is to give the reader the tools to work on his or her "inner self". Working on the "outer self" comes later. Are you interested in the dynamics of what makes you overeat in the first place? Do you believe that psychological reasons underlie your desire to remain obese? Some people believe that obesity is purely genetic and has no psychological component. I am open to the idea that it is possible to have an unconscious wish to remain obese because of unresolved psychological problems. Levine's book is well-written and clear. She describes various scenarios in the form of mini-case studies to show how people sabotage their weight-loss efforts as a result of emotional conflicts dating from childhood. For instance, a person who never separated emotionally from his mother may crave the nurturing that he misses now that he is an adult. Food often equals nurturing to our subconscious minds. Sometimes, a woman who fears getting close to a man may remain obese to avoid intimacy. Obviously, no one can be sure that by reading this book, he or she will be able to lose weight. However, I think that Levine offers "food for thought" that may be helpful for those who want to get in closer touch with their "inner selves".

Just a couple of things from someone who's been to therapy for years uncovering those root causes of eating; who's tried every plan in existence to lose weight, who's about to undergo a gastroplasty procedure because it is clear to me that's the only thing that will ever work for me. As Dr. Levine says, even if you discover the big deal that has you stuff yourself, you still have to go on a (low fat? That's passe. Catch up, Dr.) diet and exercise to lose the weight. I've identified every conceivable cause for my 400 pounds and I've waited ten minutes before eating and I've been hypnotized by the best in the business. I've read nothing in this book that was surprising, new, or unusual. People with lots of weight to lose have a different psychology than those who have, say, only 50 or 60 pounds to lose. Those folks may respond nicely to learning that Mommie fed them as a reward but not folks like me. Doesn't work for most of us. The only book that ever made sense to me about eating and about losing weight without the psychobabble was "Diets Don't Work" by Bob Schwartz. It didn't help me either, but it made more sense than this old news. I wonder what percentage of Dr. Levine's patients who were more than a hundred pounds overweight have lost all their excess weight and kept it off for five years as a result of her work. I'd be interested to see those data. In the meantime, if you're really overweight like me and have been through all the programs like me, read something updated, not this.

I don't know about any of you, but I have struggled with weight loss and weight gain for all of my adult life. This book is not psychobabble. In fact it is just the opposite. It has helped me tremendously! I cannot reccomend it enough! A good eating plan should also encompass a mind body approach. Here is the mind part of the equation.

"Yadda-Yadda" diet advice, but interesting exploration of the causes of our eating patterns. I am grateful for discovering how much I grieve for the lack of and crave intimacy with my Mom. I feel freer to deal with habits, and freer to get into real time with food and feelings. No miracles, but helpful.
I Wish I Were Thin...I Wish I Were Fat, is one of the most thought provoking books in the diet/weight control area of self-help.
Ms. Levine has not only written what needed to be said, but I feel she somehow knows me and my diet history. I will wait for her next book impatiently.
