This book makes you realise how common emotional eating really is. That you are no longer alone and have nothing to feel guilty about. [It] guides you through the process of unpicking the layers and helps you understand the reasons why you overeat. The writer’s honesty about their own journey is inspiring and gives you hope that you can make changes. The book also offers a wealth of information about nutrition, yoga and meditation to name just a few. I would highly recommend buying this book.


Amazon review

This is an inspirational book! A very different kind of approach to building a calmer, happier and healthier you. Full of thought-provoking information and exercises to support you to make changes in your outlook, attitudes and behaviours.

The author writes from her own personal experience of emotional overeating, and her sincerity and understanding permeate the pages.

Wish I’d known this stuff years ago!

BodyMAGIC! has been a lifetime in the writing.

It is a definitive guide for the emotional eater. Not only is in a heart-bearing account of Chinmayis personal journey but it is a collection of many tried and tested, ancient or traditional solutions, with practical exercises and a workbook. It is a self-centered approach of gentle self-analysis and transformation. It collates research to prove that in all but a few cases diets do not and cannot work. Chinmayi encourages you to take a little time, effort and commitment to this programme but mainly to take a step back and look at why we overeat not what we eat and how much.
