Book Review: Constant Craving by Doreen Virtue

Constant Craving by Doreen Virtue is an incredibly valuable resource for everyone who craves particular types of foods, and is having trouble dieting to lose weight. Reading this book will explain why you have those cravings, and what to do about them to get rid of them without having to eat those foods to satisfy the craving.

Book Description

Do you crave chocolate, bread, cheese, fries, or other foods? If so, there’s a reason why, as Doreen Virtue’s breakthrough book explains. Each food craving actually corresponds to a specific underlying emotion; so once you understand the meaning behind your particular craving and apply the information and affirmations within these pages, you’ll be able to heal your cycle of emotional overeating.

In addition, you’ll read scientific studies about the mood- and energy-altering properties of each food, which will help you see how your appetite perfectly mirrors your emotions. This comprehensive and empowering guide will also show you how to give “food readings” to yourself and others, allowing you to accurately interpret the meaning behind many cravings.

Constant Craving is a one-of-kind book that will give you the emotional, physical, and spiritual tools you need to make friends with food . . . and your appetite!” – Constant Craving

My Thoughts

Constant Craving is not your typical dieting self-help book. Doreen Virtue doesn’t push eating too few calories and exercising like crazy to lose weight. Instead, she did research and figured out what types of eaters there are, and what foods people crave, and why they crave them. Once you figure out the type of eater you are, what you crave, and what you really want instead of food, you’ll start to lose weight.

As a continuous dieter who has tried more diets than I can remember, I was quite excited to try a new way of looking at diets, and food in general. I don’t have a ton of cravings, but sometimes I do notice that I will eat certain types of foods more than others – which I guess could be classified as a “craving.” The affirmations for those foods (which for me includes popcorn) really does help me to beat the need to eat that food every day. I won’t ever give it up (I do actually like it and it is something gluten-free I can eat), but not eating as much is a definite start!

Overall, I found this book to be very helpful and effective for beating cravings, and hopefully to lose weight too. I’ve been putting it into practice for about a week now, so it is still too soon for me to tell, but I do think that it will work. I highly recommend this book to everyone who is tired of dieting and wants to think about food differently again.
