This is a great book to help woman who are struggling with overeating, stress eating, and "stuffing their feelings", instead of being open and assertive to get their needs met.
It is a great book on self care. I highly recommend it. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Finally someone who has figured out that all the diets that we can do will ultimately come to no fruition if we don't tackle the problem underneath.
Put Yourself First and Change Your Eating Forever
Most of us do know the basic and not so basic rules about nutrition. But we also know that this does not help us as long as we need the food to cover up the way others use and misuse us and our feelings.
Finally a book that is up front and actually teaches us that being not so nice pays out. Not sure yet if the putting oneself first really changes the eating for ever, but at least you will feel a lot better with yourself and finally get your life going in the direction that YOU wish it should be.
That is not bad either. I must admit, I did not read the whole book. I read parts of the first couple of chapters maybe, and skimmed the rest. The book read like my life, it clicked what I was doing wrong. I gave my copy away and am now buying this to share with my supportive sisters at my local YMCA.
Nice Girls Finish Fat
It is a small book, easy to read and a bargain for the price. I gave me permission to be me, to take care of me, to support me, to love me. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I have struggled with my weight for my entire adult life. TOO nice and I've learned so much about how that has affected my eating. I recommend this book to all of you girls out there who are too nice! Even if you're not overweight, this book has such good advice on how to make YOU your top priority.
One person found this helpful. I used it for an emotional eating coaching program.
Ms Koenig does it again in her new book! Just like looking for a solution in food to avoid feelings and emotions, so too the way out of disordered eating is not in food and dieting but rather in addressing what drives us to eat in the first place. Speaking up, establishing boundaries, expressing anger, self care, people pleasing, perfectionism With that compassionate "rounded eye" of a skilled therapist, she encourages you to take a look at how we live our lives before we are standing in front of the refrigerator door, not knowing how we got there.
A great read and an essential, honest examination we must all undergo. Her perspective is honest and revealing, and her writing style is laugh out loud funny without being condescending. A great read if you are looking for help with eating issues and learning how to take better care of yourself. This book intrigued me even though I have never considered myself a "nice girl". I ordered it anyway. This book also applies to highly responsible girls or women. By replacing nice with responsible when neccesary I see myself all too clearly in this book.

Nice Girls Finish Fat: Put Yourself First and Change Your Eating Forever
It is extremely readable, and going back the second time, I've got things to think about and journal about, and because of how the book is organized that is going to be very easy to do. If you know nothing about normal eating, you might find a unique entry into learning how and why you eat too much, too often, or when you are too upset.
The book was a wake-up call. Now I put myself on my list of things to do each day and take much better care of myself. It's paying off big-time. Someone once told me that when you are on an airplane, the safety instructions remind you to put the oxygen mask on yourself first. Then you can help others. This is what this book is all about. This book is written very well and is also enjoyable to read.
I saw myself in many of the women profiled. If you are a woman who does it all but neglects herself, this book is for you. Self care is not over rated and this book will help you take care of you. I know it helped me. While the specific content of Ms. Koenig's book relates to weight management, it is applicable to all women who need a recovery program for being pleasers at their own peril.
