Meryl Changed My Life
"Stop Eating Your Heart" out is one of those 'keep near you' books if you really want to work on your eating habits. I am one of those lucky people who got to know Meryl personally through her workshop that was life changing for me. When Meryl laughs your soul wakes up, when Meryl cries your heart opens, but when Meryl shares her stories you feel understood and not alone. She is so non-judgemental and because of that I was able to acknowledge my own hidden battles with eating disorders. Thus began my journey of healing and self-discovery. Thank you Meryl for giving me permission to reveal and heal instead of cover and fester those feelings of shame that often lay under eating issues.

I really would give this book 4.5 stars. The only reason is that some of it is based on OA/AA. I don't think that's bad in any way but some of the techniques is just not for me. But, that being said, overall I really liked this book and like the techniques she outlines to do to get over emotional eating. There is a good bit I can use in this book. Some I already heard before but there is plenty that just makes sense to overcoming your emotional/overeating addiction.
There are things in the book about dealing with past issues, the present, keeping journals, food mood diary (which makes alot of sense to me), and I love guided imagine methods. I wish I could find some good tapes on them though. Any suggestions let me know.
I never heard of the left/right hand method but it's interesting for sure. If you want more explaination you will have to read the book. I don't want to give it away.
Love the section in the back of references and the author put a recommended reading section in the back to read further about eating disorders, weight control, etc.
I will read more from this author for sure.

What a real treat!
I loved being able to "preview" this valuable offering while working on the copyediting and feel like I was healed in the process. Whether your relationship with food is an issue or not, there is much to be gained from reading and participating in the encouraging and effective program set forth in Meryl's book. What a real treat! ~Andra S. EwtonWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I started reading Meryl Beck’s book Stop Eating Your Heart
I started reading Meryl Beck’s book Stop Eating Your Heart Out on a flight from New England to South Florida, Being on a plane we have our little space which isolates us and as I turned the pages, there was no place for me to go but within.Was this review helpful?

The first chapter was so deep, profound and touching that it became the crack in the cosmic egg for me to explore my own young life of past.
I felt very much like Alice going down the rabbit hole as I began to read.
It was an amazing journey touching the very depth of my soul.
Meryl Beck allows her world to become yours and her reflections for us to recall our own. My young world flashed past me page after page and Meryl gave me the courage and permission to look at my young years through my adult eyes. It was incredible realization. I just finished chapter one when the plane landed.
It was brave and compassionate showing us that the light at the end of the tunnel is for us to choose what is in our highest good and go for it.
Thank you Meryl....now on to chapter two. Suzanne Aubrey
