Demand feeding opens the door to the fundamental cure for your addiction to food—the feeling of having been fed. You will discover that the simple act of feeding yourself when you’re hungry has great psychological consequences. Our clients often report that feeding themselves on demand makes them feel stronger and generally less anxious. Many say that following our recommended way of eating increases their sense of entitlement and leads them to “feed themselves” in other ways as well. We have discovered in our work as therapists and teachers that once you feel fed, you are in a position to tackle the emotional concerns that led you to misuse food in the first place.

The more you diet, the slower your metabolism, and with each successive diet it becomes more difficult, if not impossible, to lose weight. Most current research confirms the view that the ultimate result of food deprivation is an increase in stored fat. Dr. Kelley Brownell of the University of Pennsylvania found that yo-yo dieting increases the activity of an enzyme that promotes the storage of fat. Losing and regaining cycles demonstrably increase body fatness. From an evolutionary point of view, the survival of our species may be directly related to our body’s ability to store fat in times of plenty for use in times of famine.

Perhaps as a teenager you were confused and frightened by your developing body and decided to try to change it. Perhaps as an adult you found yourself attempting to eat your way out of a crisis and went on a diet to stop yourself from gaining weight. Or perhaps at some point in your life you just wanted to “feel better” by losing a few pounds. You probably didn’t think much about going on a diet. It’s a commonplace thing to do. Although diets may be de rigueur, they are not innocuous. A diet is a serious step because what is little understood is that every diet is rooted in negative feelings about oneself—feelings that range from disapproval to dislike to disgust to contempt to self-hate.
