Reader Reviews of The Hunger Within
“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.”

“The best gift for yourself. This book changed my life. I confronted many family issues that had
been a source of pain for me, which had been unknowingly contributing to my use of food as a
coping strategy. The exercises are very helpful and enlightening, and I return to this book often.”
