Praise for: Release your obsession with Cheat DAZE

In Release Your Obsession with Cheat DAZE: Heal from the Inside Out, Dr. Lisa Ortigara once again introduces the would-be dieter to what they really need: a complete lifestyle change. As Dr. Ortigara Crego so eloquently points out, “When your diet is cleared of toxic foods, you’ll want to eat foods that are clean and real.” And she couldn’t be more right! I know from
personal experience that once you switch to real, whole foods, you will no longer crave processed junk. Nature holds a bounty of flavors to satisfy our palettes, which unfortunately have been dulled by the deluge of high fructose corn syrup and chemicals in the plastic-like “food” that makes up the standard American Diet.

This is not a dry how-to book, but one with usable advice that has worked for Dr. Ortigara Crego as well as the patients she documents. Beyond that, the stories here are gripping ones, and people who do have similar problems with food will find much hope in these accounts.

Dr. Lisa Ortigara Crego expertly weaves personal experience, case studies, and her own medical expertise throughout Release Your Obsession with Food: Heal from the Inside Out, giving the reader invaluable information in a manner that is both relatable and riveting. I especially appreciated how she dealt in depth with the way food allergies and intolerances can cause not only food addiction but also some pretty severe and debilitating...

Dr. Lisa offers insights and patient stories about eating disorders and how to recover. The book addresses changes in the addict's thinking, in the person's relationship to The Source and spirituality, and in eating healthy, natural foods and avoiding binge diets. Many excellent resources are provided to assist in recovery from obsessive eating. Each chapter ends with questions to reflect upon that assist with the recovery process..
