Any book with this title is going to be a bestseller especially if it’s written by a gorgeous intelligent young woman who is living proof that she practices what she preaches. However, just like weight loss, this is not for the faint hearted - nor for the scientifically disinclined - and there are no quick fix solutions in here. It’s a book heavy on the biochemical and emotional reasons for weight gain but it does go far beyond the usual diet book schtick of telling people to eat less and exercise more. Libby Weaver understands there’s more to it than that and for people who can follow the science there may well be some light bulb type revelations.

Review comments:


Dieting is a subject most women can relate to. Kerre makes it clear that the point of difference with this book is the science.

This looks good! biochemistry is often overlooked by many fanatics, no matter how intelligent they are.

I have recently purchased this book and am finding it very interesting. It was recommended to me by a friend who, noticeably, had lost a considerable amount of weight after battling to lose the last few kilos she had stored from the birth of her son. Well worth the read.

Looks like a book I should read. Will definately look out for it. Thanks for reviewing this book.

Hmm, I definitely think I'd prefer the science angle when it comes to weight loss. I think we've all suffered from too many fad diets based on pseudo-science. The author's name sounds familiar, doesn't she do the columns for a woman's magazine? Marie Claire, maybe
21 Apr 2011 14:16:22 | Georgina Murphy

This definately looks like a really different way of looking at the weight gain problems facing many. I'm really looking forward to reading this. I have looked at her website and its great also along with her monthly newsletters.
21 Apr 2011 14:58:32 | Gael Bonnington

This sounds very interesting and a good read.
21 Apr 2011 18:32:28 | Vanessa Davidson

Rings some bells, looks like a book for me. I like the emphasis away from a quick fix, but the acknowledgement of emotions.
21 Apr 2011 22:45:50 | Rachel Prasad

think that this will indeed be an interesting read very much an emotional eater so could be beneficial thanks Kerre for the excellent review.
21 Apr 2011 23:09:53 | Annette Briggs

looks like a very interesting book as I am very much an emotional eater! Could be very benifical Thanks Kerre for the very good review.
21 Apr 2011 23:12:02 | Annette Briggs

This is an amazing book although a bit "over my head " sometimes, however definately worth a look at. I have had the pleasure of meeting and listening to Dr Libby speak. She is a truely lovely person and is highly respected for her knowledge in her field.
22 Apr 2011 10:12:07 | Shona Martin

looks like a good read, thanks for reviewing this book
23 Apr 2011 11:38:55 | Justine Reihana

Def worth reading and a good one to pass on
24 Apr 2011 18:16:28 | Siobhan Lenehan

This definitely looks like an interesting read as lots of us (men and women included) have battled the many facets of attempting weight loss...thinking we just need to cut back on rubbish food and pound the pavement more to achieve...not necessarily that simple of course!

My husband brought me this book for my birthday, I initially was furious with him, how insulting. I read it secretly - blew me away, so many little helpful ideas, and seemed to be written just for me.
25 May 2011 07:10:10 | Faye Gurry

It sounds like its a very indepth diet book....full of great detail. Love the title though......as I don't know anybody thats out on weight intentionally!!!! Have seen Libby Weaver on TV a few times & she seems to know what shes talking about so her book could be just what the doc ordered!!!
22 Jun 2011 07:22:52 | KARYN KRILETICH

It is a great book and seems to work quite well once you get your head around it!
16 Aug 2011 18:33:00 | Fiona Morton

I think it's hilarious that someone's husband bought them this book. My freaking lanta, my husband would become a statistic if he bought me this book.
21 Sep 2011 21:03:37 | Tamzen Rillstone

This book sounds really good, and its something many women can relate too.
10 Feb 2012 18:21:45 | India Baker

An interesting looking book. Good review, look forward to reading it myself!
11 Feb 2012 14:27:24 | Anna Vincent

I'm interested to read this review as this is a book I have been thinking about buying. Thank you Kerre.
11 Feb 2012 17:17:29 | Valerie Fitzsimons

Anyone trying to lose weight knows the simple rules of less in and more exercise but having done this many times with limited success , I will be interested in reading this book and finding out about the science behind weight loss.
11 Feb 2012 18:36:54 | Kim OBrien

I think we need to see a lot more books like this one, to help give people encouragement and motivation. I am very slim, i work out at the gum and also watch what i eat. It's not easy sometimes, i have to have good will power and push myself. I can fully understand people out there who struggle with weight as it is not easy to say no to yummy food. I am one of the lucky one's with will power. I love seeing overweight people trying to do something about it, that biggest looser programme is a fantastic programme and i'm sure this book is amazing too :)
14 Mar 2012 15:04:43 | Leanne Le sueur

I am sure this will be an interesting read - but I wonder, will it actually help me loose weight, or excuse me for not loosing it...
11 Apr 2012 11:12:23 | Frances Lowery

My late husband brought this for me for my birthday, I was furious with him and refused to read it. However snuck a peep and fell in love with it. Great easy ideas to help you but no quick fixes. Great read
07 Jun 2012 06:35:58 | Faye Gurry

Interesting review, I may have to have a look at this
12 Jun 2012 20:33:56 | Shelley Newbery

Sounds promising - I hope it is. People need to get to the reasons why they overeat before they can address the symptoms
20 Jul 2012 18:47:24 | Perry Garrick

I too love the title of this book, it instantly draws me in and makes me want to read it. I'm interested in this subject and look forward to reading it, thanks Kerre.

Sounds interesting..
05 Nov 2014 14:29:35 | Sarah Webster

Have read this and if you can perservere with the technical...it makes sense. Lost 2 kilos since reading it two weeks ago just using what resonated with me from the book
05 Nov 2014 18:36:11 | Carolyn Crawford-Smith

I love Dr Libby. Sounds fascinating and definitely will be on my must read list!
05 Nov 2014 18:39:44 | Anna Vincent

Sounds like it would be an interesting read.
09 Nov 2014 10:30:49 | Tina Burt

Sounds like an interesting view of why we can carry weight. Definitely worth exploring.

This book explores all of the factors that are essential for burning body fat, from the influence of stress hormones and sex hormones, to thyroid function, insulin and even emotions.

So it was an accident....

Loving this title, recently have lost 12kg and am amazed as to how I let the weight gain happen. Would love to delve into this. Funny thing weight loss, you loose weight but gain so much. The other day I found a rib or two that had been missing for a few years, the shoulders have also made an appearance.

Accidently Overweight.

"First off, I love the title. So eye catching and it makes me automatically want to read this! So many people think weight loss is a quick fix but as the author discusses - it's not. This book would be appropriate for anyone and everyone especially those who struggle with weight loss and/or body issues (as we all do). Looking forward to reading this one"
