"Santa Barbara author Patricia Bisch would seem to be on a definite winner with her new book "Freedom From Food," which claims you can eat anything you want and don't have to worry about a thing.

It took Bisch, a psychotherapist for 30 years, more than five years to write the 231-page paperback, which chronicles her many painful years of dieting and binge eating before discovering what she describes as "he winning recipe for weight loss. It was a labor of love," she admits.

"The book doesn't deal with diets, exercise programs, calorie counting or any form of deprivation. It looks at food and weight from a unique vantage point- how your thoughts and emotions affect your body.

"There is abundant scientific evidence in quantum physics to show that our thoughts and emotions directly affect our physical form. You have to go through a process to make your mind strong enough to actually change the way your body processes food."

The tasty tome was launched with a light luncheon at the Stonehouse at the San Ysidro Ranch."
