“This book is simply incredible. The fact that it is set up like a seminar/workshop with exercises (as in assignments) is just wonderful. It really allows you to get involved with the book and with overcoming your problem. You don’t just learn about your problem-you actually take the physical steps in moving forward.”

“The answers really do lie within this book! Marilyn goes through three different characters’ perspectives throughout their journey from enlightenment to recovery. She offers many exercises throughout the book along with the three characters’ responses to each situation. Watching their recovery itself in a group therapy-like surrounding really helped me feel like I wasn’t alone . . . ”

“It made me cry. I know that it is hard to believe that a ‘diet’ book made me cry, but it really did! I’ve been on the diet roller coaster since I was 11 years old. I’ve been anorexic, bulimic and still suffer from binge eating. I was at my wit’s end when I ordered The Hunger Within. I didn’t think that a self-help book would give me any new ideas or solutions but I decided I would try it. I just started reading the book yesterday. It has definitely been a breakthrough . . . ”

“A Life Saver. Not a ‘quick fix’ diet book, but a permanent fix! Sensible, easy to follow program that works and LASTS!!! Helps you understand WHY you overeat, not just what you should eat. Beautiful relevant quotes in each chapter were a lovely touch.”

“Truly an excellent book!!! . . . After trying every diet on the market, finally The Hunger Within focuses you on the real reasons why we eat, allowing food to become a source of nourishment and not self-destruction. A GREAT BOOK.”
