Lists with This Book. Mar 13, Toni rated it liked it Shelves: 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 craviny 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 addic It’s no secret that I struggle with my weight and being the avid book reader that I am, I am always reading about cravihg loss topics.
There is almost always and emotional reason behind draving 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, soreen, meditations, affirmations and other alternative methods to use.
This was a very enlightening and interesting take on the issue of weight ccraving and I found the tools easy to use and effective.

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 I bought this book based on a fellow dorefn review. 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. Mar 27, Toni Wheeler rated it liked it. Doreen Virtue might be just a little wack-a-doodle the woman wrote a book about talking to fairiesbut 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 cojstant it is that when you overeat it is often for emotional reasons so asking yourself why you want to eat when you are not consstant can help in healing your eating patterns.
I also have found that asking myself “am I eating for crraving or cravingg reasons” is virue as she too suggests in the book. According to author Doreen Virtue, “we intuitively crave foods that perfectly match our emotional needs 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! Aug 11, Meghan rated it really liked it.
A little new agey at times, but a lot of constanf advice about figuring out what you’re really feeling when you eat as a self-soothing mechanism. Jul 07, Daylynn Foster rated it it was amazing.
Loaded with interesting information! Don’t know how much for either though. Pickles are a stimulant! Aged cheese is too! She explains why you crave foods you are sensitive or allergic to! If you crave peanut butter cups, you want more fun in your life. Has a whole candy section cirtue Loaded with interesting information!
Really enjoyed her perspective. Jul 17, Irissska rated it it was ok Shelves: Well, it took me 3 tries to finish it, virtuue i wouldn’t say i found something which was both useful and new there. Same old stuff and new info i wont use. Oct 11, SB rated it it was amazing. 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 doreeen cravings to those emotional needs she listed and ran this against the foods cr One of the best books I’ve read in a long time. 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.
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 virtud In fact fat keeps you fuller craing longer and sugar makes you fat-not fat. The author can be forgiven though as I think this book was written in but I think the whole “fat makes you xraving epidemic occured in the 80s?? As a 90s child, can’t be sure of this.
Jan 16, Bri rated it really liked it Shelves: I think the information was really good but the author’s writing style virtke not. It seemed too informal for a book about scientific research on food in carving 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 vittue appetite were helpful and actually work!
Mar 12, Madeleine Gustavsson rated it liked it. I must say that I am kind of torn constxnt. 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 doren 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.
Constant Craving: What Your Food Cravings Mean and How to Overcome Them
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.
Jun 02, Sarah rated it it was amazing. 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 Feb 10, Kim rated it really liked it.
A great book by Ms. 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.
