Constant Craving: What Your Food Cravings Mean and How to Overcome Them Reviews

    It's no secret that I struggle with my weight and being the avid book reader that I am, I am always reading about weight loss topics. Most of them give you a lot of scientific data, diet tips, and exercise options. But if you've ever watched a reality show with people trying to lose the pounds, you know that the issues go beyond just stopping at too many fast food restaurants or not being able to push yourself away from the table. There is almost always and emotional reason behind our food addictions and until we deal with those underlying problems, releasing the weight will be difficult.Constant Craving takes it a little further by pointing out the emotional ties to specific food cravings. For example, chocolate is my craving of choice, and that points to a need for reassurance, love and support. To help you through the process of understanding and overcoming your cravings, Virtue provides alternate foods, exercises, meditations, affirmations and other alternative methods to use. This was a very enlightening and interesting take on the issue of weight loss and I found the tools easy to use and effective.

    I bought this book based on a fellow blogger's review. I did like it. The premise is simple, you are getting fat because you can't differentiate between real hunger and eating to fill an emotional need. There is a six-step program outlined in the book to help you discover if you are eating for hunger or not. I think it's somewhat helpful but this book won't help you lose weight unless you truly work out why you're suffering from emotional hunger. This might mean seeking professional help. In the back of the book there is a list of foods people crave and what it means when you crave them. I think that the emotions indicated are at times too simple and obvious. However, you may find the book helpful.

    Doreen Virtue might be just a little wack-a-doodle (the woman wrote a book about talking to fairies), but I say don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. While I'm not sure I buy her theories about specific food cravings representing specific emotional issues - and she's very specific - I'm on board with the idea that we often eat to avoid uncomfortable feelings. This book didn't do a whole lot for me personally, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to someone struggling with food issues. There are some valuable insights here, particularly for those who don't yet realize they're eating their feelings.

    Very insightful book with a lot of information. At times it felt like too much information and I did skip over sections but felt like I took from it what I was supposed to. The essence of it is that when you overeat it is often for emotional reasons so asking yourself why you want to eat when you are not hungry can help in healing your eating patterns. I also have found that asking myself "am I eating for emotional or physical reasons" is helpful as she too suggests in the book.

    According to author Doreen Virtue, "we intuitively crave foods that perfectly match our emotional needs..." The descriptions of what different cravings mean was kind of like reading horoscopes: "your love life is lacking" or whatever. Until I read about craving salty, crunchy things (like Wheat Thins). I don't have the quote, but it was something about feeling frustrated by change that is out of your control! Maybe she's onto something!

    A little new agey at times, but a lot of good advice about figuring out what you're really feeling when you eat as a self-soothing mechanism.

    Izrādās, ka tiešām viss ir mūsu galvās. Arī mūsu ēdiena izvēle ir emocijas un dažādi iekšēji pārdzīvojumi. Guvu arī dažas personiskas atbildes par savām ēdienkārēm.Tikai visu laiku nomāc jautājums - ko tad īsti ēd tie, kas nesirgst ar bailēm, dusmām, saspringumu un kaunu? Laikam jau tikai dzer tīru ūdeni!

    One of the best books I've read in a long time. Author posits that each and every food craving we have corresponds to some emotional need. She includes a chart at the end listing foods and the need not being fulfilled- the food list is VERY detailed; she even distinguishes between soft peanut butter and crunchy peanut butter! All of the emotional needs of myself and my family were eerily accurate; I traced all my past cravings to those emotional needs she listed and ran this against the foods craved by my family- their personality/ current phase in life was described perfectly! Me and my mother howled with laughter over how true some of the descriptions were. I like how the book isn't really about food though and how your cravings derive from the present state of your life and how satisfied you are. The author forces you to see the bigger picture and says that once you tackle the emotional problems/worries or even just simply acknowledge and understand your cravings then they'll disappear. I only finished it today and recently just fished a chocolate bar from my recycling bin so we'll see how it goes in the future.... Very engaging and well-written and perfect for people who want to understand why they crave certain foods and how they can break their addiction.The only problem I have with this book is the insinuation that fat makes you fat! In fact fat keeps you fuller for longer and sugar makes you fat-not fat. The author can be forgiven though as I think this book was written in 1999 (but I think the whole "fat makes you fat" epidemic occured in the 80s?? As a 90s child, can't be sure of this).

    I think the information was really good but the author's writing style was not. It seemed too informal for a book about scientific research on food in the body. I mean, some colloquialism is good to connect with the reader, but this was the entire book. Other than that, I felt I learned a lot and I'm definitely keeping the book for future reference. The tips she gave for controlling the appetite were helpful and actually work!

    I must say that I am kind of torn apart. One side of me really like this book while the other side does not. The good thing with this is that is very easy to read, for those who do not have English a main language, and the most important thing is that it is very insightful. But in the end is got kind of boring and I lost the interest. So I just ended it cause i felt that I had to.

    Pretty interesting and with some new useful information even if, in the end, it seemed to me that all the cravings are for similar emotional reasons. Parecchio interessante e con alcune nuove informazioni, anche se, alla fine, mi sembrava che tutti di vari desideri di cibo avessero alla baste le stesse emozioni.THANKS TO NETGALLEY AND HAY HOUSE FOR THE PREVIEW

    Loved this book. As always DV is easy to read and makes a lot of sense. I learned a few things too. DV always has great information to share and this book from 20 years ago still has info to share to better your life....

    A great book by Ms. Virtue. Certainly explains why I crave some of the food that I do. It is like you can watch the trend of where you are and where you have been, simply by what your body is craving to eat. I found it very interesting, and a book that I will keep to reference back to over time.

    I had great hopes of better understanding food cravings. This book outlines the underlying emotions behind cravings. I felt there was some useful information, because t most of it just didn't jive with me.
