Spiritual Practice Success Story: “I Kicked the Binge Eating Habit”

In my diet book, The Emergency Diet: The Somewhat Hard, Very Controversial, Totally Unheard Of and Fastest Possible Way to Lose Weight, I discuss my long history with binge eating and dieting. Since writing that book, however, there’s been a dramatic change.

I overcame my twenty-year-old binge eating habit.

Here’s how this miraculous shift occurred: One day, I decided to start keeping a journal on my eating habits and on my attempts to change them by employing various spiritual practices. (I was hoping that affirmations in particular would help.) After that, I rewrote the journal (to make it prettier sounding, mostly) and made it into a book, which I called Enlightenment.

Well, shortly after finishing the book, something wonderful happened: I stopped binge eating almost entirely. In the book’s epilogue, I describe the change in more detail. What I don’t say is that for several months previous, I wrote the following affirmation in my journal on a regular basis:

“I am ready to give up overeating.”


It’s spirituality for the rest of us.

Eckhart Tolle is awesome. So are Byron Katie and all those Buddhist monks we hear about. Why, then, doesn’t their advice immediately solve all our most pressing spiritual problems?

Why are their results so difficult to replicate?
