Book Review: A different approach to weight loss based an alternative theory







Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much: A 4-Step, 8-Week Plan to Finally Lose the Weight, Manage Emotional Eating, and Find Your Fabulous Self

By Colette Baron-Reid

 Colette Baron-Reid offers a new-age theory that people in society that tend to be empathic are gaining weight and /or are over weight are affected by emotions of people surrounding them.  

As science proved that emotions do affect the body through cortisol and other hormones, it would then reason that weight fluctuations are effected by these occurrences as well.

 The author offers an 8 week program that is not for everyone. It is aimed at a particular audience open-minded to her way of thinking. Could this help some people? Yes. Is this the answer to every over weight person’s problem? No.  In the title it specifically states for people who feel too much, meaning empaths.  If the reader does not fit this criterion, then the book and subsequent program isn’t for them.

 It is an interesting addition to the current weight-loss information available. She has had success herself on the program she outlines and several of her clients have had success also. As with any diet program, it will work for some people. The defining factor is will it work for you if you fit the empath criterion.
