Quit your on-again, off-again relationship with dieting for good—and become healthier and happier than ever.

You've tried to eat only vegetables. You've tried to eat only meat. You've gone gluten-free, dairy-free, satisfaction-free—but you shouldn't have to. In fact, you don't have to. 

It’s time to stop restricting yourself and learn to make your relationship with food healthy—without forcing yourself to eat "healthy."

Dietitian Kim Shapira has developed six simple rules that will change your relationship with food forever. In This Is What You’re Really Hungry For, she breaks down the science to get your brain and your body on board; replaces fad diets that do not last with a sustainable method that encourages you to eat what you love; and empowers you to be the authority in your own body.

Kim’s refreshing approach will help you:

  • Lose weight—or maintain your current weight
  • Resolve blood pressure issues
  • Improve your energy levels
  • Reframe your beliefs about food and why you eat
  • Identify foods that don’t love you back
  • Manage your emotions in authentic, healthy ways

Food should be a source of joy and nourishment in your life—not stress—and This Is What You’re Really Hungry For will help you get there. Featuring a foreword by Kaley Cuoco, this will be the last “diet” book you ever need—without ever asking you to go on a diet.
Quit your on-again, off-again relationship with dieting for good—and become healthier and happier than ever.

You've tried to eat only vegetables. You've tried to eat only meat. You've gone...

What an interesting take on hunger and food and our minds! I like reading books about this topic and often do. I still managed to learn new information and Kim's steps were helpful. I'd grab this for myself in hard copy to read again. Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC. Five stars.

Enjoyable read. Going to put in practice.
Thanks to author, publisher and Netgalley for the chance to read this book. While I got the book for free it had no bearing on the rating I gave it.

The formula seems simple 6 rules: eat when you are hungry, eat what you love, eat without distractions, take 10,000 steps each day (no really, take 10,000 steps a day), drink 8 cups of water a day, and get seven hours of sleep. What I like about this book is that the Author fully acknowledges the types of barriers that people face in achieving these things- but I think the most important thing is that the book isn't really about dieting as much as it is about being your best self

Thank you to Net Galley for the ARC in exchange for an honest bias free review

Kim Shapira is a dietitian and she has developed her own method with six rules to follow, the goal of finding balance instead of perfection, self-love and trust in one’s own ability to live and eat more mindfully. Shapira explains the physiological and psychological reasoning behind each rule, relaying many anecdotes and patient cases to exemplify her teachings. She is also open about her own challenges. Shapira is a talented writer and writes with a lot of empathy.

This is not a diet book. It is also not a “health at any size” book. It is about how to develop a healthy relationship with food with a focus on losing weight or keeping it off. This could be helpful for some or harmful, depending on if you have a history of disordered eating.

If you need some common sense advice on how to get in touch with hunger and find more balance in life then this book could be helpful, although nothing in it is revolutionary. This is basically a book about intuitive eating but with a bit more of a focus on weight loss. I don’t know if there is much new to discover here, but it is always helpful to have another person explain their method in case that could help someone find more balance in life.

This is What You're Really Hungry For has made me reset the way I think about eating, living and health. I feel less shame and more hope while changing how I feel about food and myself.
