When Belinda followed the advice in a diet self-help book, the result was hardly what the author intended. How come?

Was the author's intention that the reader loses weight? feels healthier? gets rid of allergies? detoxes?

Did Belinda misunderstand the advice?

Did she gain weight?

Was the advice related to eating? If so, about what to eat? when to eat? where to eat?
Was it related to buying food? storing food? preparing food? drinking? excercising? sleeping? changing some other aspect of your lifestyle?

Is there anything relevant about Belinda that we should find out?

so the advice was about when to eat?

did it relate to eating between meals? eating at set times of the day? how many times a day to eat? how long to eat for? what days of the week to eat certain things? what times of the day to eat certain things?
in what situations to eat? whether to eat when other people are around? not to eat alone? when to stop eating? when to start eating?

did the advice relate to whether the food was prepared at home? or in a restaurant? take away relevant?

alcohol consumption relevant? relevant activities done at the same time as eating? or not done (e.g. don't eat when watching TV)

when Belinda followed the advice did she actually eat more than intended? eat less? eat the 'wrong' things? eat unhealthily? eat at odd times? eat continually? leave too much time between eating events? did she stop eating proper meals? did she eat too many snacks? did she eat special diet food?

are low fat foods relevant? low calorie foods? fruits and vegetables? sweets? cakes?

drinks relevant? tea? coffee?

so did she actually increase the amount of 'unhealthy' food she ate? ate it instead of healthy food?

did she think the advice meant she needed this food to become healthier? or did she think that she could still be healthy despite eating large amounts of unhealthy food?

did the advice tell her when to eat cakes etc? when it was 'safe' to eat them? did it say it was OK to eat lots of unhealthy things as long as some other condition was satisfied?

Did she think she was being healthier, but actually wasn't? Did she change her diet at all? Did she become less healthy in some other way because she thought she was eating well, like doing less exercise?

that they eat when they are not hungry? see next answer. By the way, of course I eat when I am not hungry, just as I read when I do not need information, & I travel to places where I do not need to go. I do these things for pleasure.Is that so terrible?

that they eat for the wrong reasons? yes that they are greedy? no

Is depression involved? And she ate when she was depressed?

Weirdest thing happened. When I was sleeping, I dreamed about this puzzle in a Law and Order episode. What happened was that in the book, she was told to do some sort of exercise outside. People thought it was funny, looking at a person who was fat unsuccessfully try to do whatever the exercise was. She became depressed and then she started to eat more and more (I eat when I'm sad to) and that's why she gained weight.

I highly doubt this will be the answer, but I have been known to predict things in my dreams. So its worth a shot.

Was the author's intent that people behave oppositely of the way Belinda is?

Was moderation intended?

Is Belinda interpreting something literally which was not meant to be interpreted in that way?

Is she using something in the book as an excuse to eat more (e. g. the joke about "the doctor said I can only have one drink with meals so now I'm up to 11 meals each day")?

Is it that eating binges are brought on by guilt? Did the book say she stop feeling guilty so often? So instead, she stopped feeling guilty about binge eating?

Alternatively, that binge eating is a form of punishment? So it said that she should stop punishing herself? So she stopped punishing herself for binge eating?

In my defense, individuals often develop other eating disorders to punish themselves, I didn't know if binge eating worked the same way!

Is it necessary to discover an exact emotion that supposedly triggers binges? Or is it just that emotions in general cause them?

Did the book encourage a different outlet for the emotion(s) that cause binge eating?

In my defense, individuals often develop other eating disorders to punish themselves, I didn't know if binge eating worked the same way! I'm skeptical of the whole concept of an eating disorder, which seems to get applied to anyone whose top priority in eating isn't health & fitness. Climbing Mount Everest is probably at least as dangerous as overeating or undereating, but we don't say people who do it have a mountaineering disorder.

Is it necessary to discover an exact emotion that supposedly triggers binges? yopeOr is it just that emotions in general cause them? yope

Did the book encourage a different outlet for the emotion(s) that cause binge eating? yesish or yes
