BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: How to Break Your Eat-Repent-Repeat Cycle is a book written by Michelle May, M.D. This book is especially designed for those who find they regularly deprive themselves, give into temptation, feel guilty and then start the process over again, where food is concerned.
