One of the diet guru that catapulted into the limelight of the diet industry is Michelle May, MD. She authored the book called "Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: How to Break Your Eat-Repent-Repeat Cycle", which become the basis of "Eat What You Love Diet". This diet seems to be "a pie in the sky" kind of diet: Too good to be true, so to speak. But none so far made a critical review of it. In fact, Dr May's book has been highly reviewed. That means, for those people who tried this diet, it made sense for them.

Stories of failed diet abounds. Yo-yo dieters all over the world are huge. Anyone who applies the principles laid out in May's book can have the chance to be stricken off from the statistics of failed diet. Yo-yo dieters by the million would relieve themselves of frustration.

Dr. May, a previous yo-yo dieter herself, laid out the founding principles of her "Eat What You Love Diet" based on her personal experience. She knew the agony and guilt of one who has lost weight and then get it back, so her "Eat What You Love Diet" didn't focus on diet per se, but on healthy approach to eating. According to Dr May - "Learning to eat what you love, fearlessly without deprivation or guilt, and learning to eat mindfully with intention and attention" would get one off from the scourge of yo-yo dieting. Changing perspective discarding the old eating habits relative to food, one can manage weight problem without undergoing to the prohibited diet. Furthermore, as Dr. May says, loving to eat is not only good for one's curve but also for one's spirit, heart and mind.

Emotional eating can wreck havoc to one's body. The tendency is, if one's angry, sad, or frustrated one inclines to pour out all these emotions to eating. As a result as one gulped down the excess food that the body don't need, it cause deleterious effect on the body functioning. According of Dr. May, one should focus on food as nourishment of the body, and on savouring the delectable quality of the food; eating slowly to really enjoy it. Eating instinctively and being conscious of what one put in one's palate is the way to learn dealing with hunger. Dr. May also describes in her "Eat What You Love Diet" how to recognize the fatal pattern of the bingeing process, and she offers suggestions for creative ways to stop the bingeing habits. Dr May also added, once one's discovered the hidden issues buried in those eating habits, it give one's new vista how to deal with overeating.

Dr. May's book "Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: How to Break Your Eat-Repent-Repeat Cycle" has chapter that discuss about self-care. Dr May says that learning how to eat aware of its purpose, can heighten the sensation that one get from the food. A new level of satisfaction and enjoyment comes into the picture when one's attune to what the body is saying. It could be that the food is not at all good. One's palate is sensitive when one is really hungry, but as the hunger lessens, the highly defined sensation diminished, too. When one is hungry, a chocolate crunch can be so heavenly, but eating it slowly getting the taste little by little, as one fills up, the heavenly flavours seem to disappear.

Dr. May's diet may not be the ready solution for quick diet plan, but "Eat What You Love" diet, if one does an emotional work on it, food would be out one's mind. Instead, one would enjoy it entirely and thoroughly while taking charge of living life healthily.
