This readable, entertaining, and light-hearted book by Ellyn Satter, based on solid scientific evidence, will transform your life. In writing about eating, feeding, and cooking, Satter also writes about emotional health and positive family relationships. Satter encourages you to celebrate eating. Eating is okay. Eating enough is okay. Enjoying eating is okay. Eating what you like--and discovering the joy of cooking--is okay. Raising your child to do the same thing is more than okay, it is brilliant How can this be? Won't taking off the brakes on eating and weight make you eat way too much and gain a lot of weight? Based on her research and experience with Eating Competence and the Satter Division of Responsibility in Feeding, Satter says no. On the contrary, discovering the joy of eating--becoming eating competent--lets you connect with your inner self that knows how to eat.

About the Author
Readers say that Ellyn Satter's books transformed their lives: Satter writes not only about food, eating, and feeding, but about emotional health and positive family relationships. Satter gives her blessings to all food, and to you for eating it, by sharing her conviction that you and your family are more important than your diet. Satter's research confirms that being positive and self-trusting with respect to food and eating does more for your nutritional, medical, and emotional health than adhering to a set of rules about what to eat and not to eat. Will letting yourself be positive and joyful with eating make you fat? Despite your worst fears, it will not. People who are competent with eating--who approach food and eating with optimism, self-trust, and curiosity--weigh less than those who guide their eating with negativity, self-denial, and avoidance.
