Author Biography

Rae Roth is a personal coach and author in the field of weight loss and achieving a healthier lifestyle. Rae founded VeggieMinded.com, an online coaching platform, to help people develop healthier eating habits and achieve sustainable weight loss.

Rae’s personal experience with stubborn weight started her on her path of discovery of some of the biggest problems with conventional diets and weight loss plans. Once Rae realized that weight loss options, popularized by the media and the medical community, did not offer any sustainable long term solutions, Rae set out on a mission to find the keys to long term results.

Rae’s academic background in psychology and mass communication led her to a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection and its role in weight loss.
Understanding that diet plans are temporary, with over 90% of people gaining back all the weight they lost within one year, Rae recognized that only the development of new habits could result in sustainable weight loss and better health. Discovering the means to achieving sustainable weight loss and better health, compelled Rae to build her coaching platform and practice.

In her coaching practice, Rae focuses on giving her clients the tools they need to achieve the permanent results they desire. Within this program, each client builds their own customized eating plan based on their individual goals, body figure, lifestyle, and environment.

Rae resides in San Francisco, California, and works with clients throughout the world.

Cut Your Cravings: Discover Why You Fail To Diet & How You Can Lose Weight Once and For All is a non-fiction health and wellness self-help book written by Rae Roth. The author is a personal coach whose online site helps people adopt a healthier approach to eating and fitness. Much of her initial impetus in researching weight loss and the reasons why so many try and fail at it is drawn from her own experiences as someone who had weight issues of her own. She discovered that the mind-body connection was paramount to success in weight loss and the ability to maintain the target weight after it has been achieved. Cut Your Cravings is an interactive book which works most effectively when the reader gets involved in writing their own answers to the author's questions, which set out the reader's weight loss goals and motivations. She also coaches the reader through visualization exercises that internally start the process of becoming the fit person the reader wants to be. Roth does not include diet plans or lists of good and forbidden foods in this book. Rather, she presents a number of tools for the reader to examine their mindset on nutrition and their relationship with food, and make those changes that will enable them to lose weight without feeling deprived, tense and miserable.

Rae Roth's non-fiction health and wellness self-help book, Cut Your Cravings, doesn't tell you that you can't drink coffee or ever have a piece of chocolate cake again. What it does do is help you understand how your perceptions on eating, food and self-image are largely derived from external sources, and it shows you how to re-calibrate your thought processes and incorporate changes that are habitual and non-stressful. I found the exercises Roth sets the reader to be quite useful and was intrigued by many of the ideas she presents, especially the use of habitual actions and positive affirmations to make getting to one's desired weight a much easier and more enjoyable process than one might think is possible. Roth's ideas are stimulating, and her approach is conversational in style, enthusiastic and motivational. Cut Your Cravings is highly recommended.

I read this book a while ago but waited a long period of time before writing this review. I wanted to make sure that the book's ideas, intentions, and plan of action were helpful and truthful because I am not one to recommend anything. It turns out that after 2 months I have lost 15 pounds and people are noticing! This book is great because you have to master one plan of action at a time before moving on and mastering the next helpful idea to lose weight easier. It is also a great book because it is easy reading and you don't have to remember to log anything into a notebook, which I would invariably forget to do with my crazy schedule at work and home. The book became my friend. Now, I know the material like the back of my hand and implement the actions to lose weight without thinking about it. It became part of me. For example, I only eat know when I am really and truly hungry rather just because I was bored or stressed out!! I pray that you will also obtain this wonderful liberation from food.

This book is truly a revelation! So many people have intentions to lose weight and begin to tackle on endless weight loss programs, only to fail over and over again. Rae Roth has managed to bring together some of the greatest minds of personal development into a well-thought-out weight management and lifestyle plan that anyone can follow!

This book empowered me to get out of my own way and create a positive lifestyle that reflects my feelings about who I am, and my relationship with food, and the potential for success that exists inside of me. Stop trying to figure it out on your own! Read this book and set into motion the learnings.

Amazing!! This is a truly transformative book about diet and our relationship to food that approaches the topic of health, diet and one's relationship with food from a standpoint of personal growth and empowerment. Rae Roth weaves in quotes and lessons from some of the greatest thinkers and teachers of Western and Eastern cultures, and applies them to the topic of diet and lifestyle choices, creating a work that will improve the life of anyone who reads (regardless of their current relationship with food).

A VERY inspirational and thought provoking book. Reading this has given me the tools to enhance my way of thinking. It made me take stock into my programmed actions and decide to take action in improving what I've learned throughout my lifetime.
I've recently found I've lost 15 pounds!

Thank you for putting into words how people like me tend to feel. I now check myself every time I feel I'm hungry and walk into the kitchen. I stop and evaluate...am I hungry or bored?
I'm always drinking lots of water, now, to include an equivalent of half a bottle when I awake.
I also enjoy my food at meal times instead of giving into distractions. It's helping me to remember portion control and to listen to my body tell me when it's satiated instead of just mindlessly eating. All and all, I've tried to remember your teachings and have made a plan for myself that I'm working to keep as a routine and as a diet. I really like my new way of daily life and thank you for your written words of encouragement.

This was a great read to get back into a healthy lifestyle. It's easy to pick up and remember aspects when I feel like giving up. Rae is such a friendly and encouraging voice, and explains both why different concepts work and how to actually use them in real life.
