Are You Too Darn Nice?

Nice GirlsToday, in my Body-Mind Book Club with my friend Max Daniels, we will be interviewing Karen R. Koenig. She’s the author of Nice Girls Finish Fat: Put Yourself First and Change Your Eating Forever (along with four other books!)

Why is it that the nicer you are to others the more likely you are to put yourself at the bottom of the list in your own life?

And when you do that, it’s really common to take care of yourself in a way that is fast, easy and takes only the tiniest bit of energy… and that is by eating.

Eating when you aren’t hungry.

Eating foods that zap your energy and your self-esteem.

And eating way, way past full.

Karen isn’t saying that the mean girl in you should dominate your personality. Not at all.

But what she is saying is that you can’t always be the nice girl at your own expense. And that’s what a lot of us do.

To learn why we do this, how to not do this, and let go of your extra pounds without the drama of a diet that doesn’t work, check out Nice Girls Finish Fat: Put Yourself First and Change Your Eating Forever.
