Overview

This workbook teaches how to heal emotional wounds without burying them in food and weight obsessions. Get comfortable with the seven most difficult feelings: guilt, shame, helplessness, anxiety, disappointment, confusion and loneliness. A strong and healthy person will emerge with this soul-healing workbook, enhancing your eating and your life. An extraordinary, powerful connection exists between feeling and feeding that, if damaged, may lead to one relying on food for emotional support, rather than seeking authentic happiness. This unique workbook takes on the seven emotions that plague problem eaters - guilt, shame, helplessness, anxiety, disappointment, confusion, and loneliness - and shows readers how to embrace and learn from their feelings. Written with honesty and humor, the book explains how to identify and label a specific emotion, the function of that emotion, and why the emotion drives food and eating problems.

For people struggling with eating disorders, being able to understand, tolerate, and learn from one's feelings is the key to recovery. Many books tell people to 'feel their feelings,' but few fully explain why and how to do this. I am thrilled to discover this workbook

This book thoroughly walks the reader through some serious feelings work in a way that a therapist would do. Anyone with any kind of addictions or 'frozen feelings' can benefit from this workbook, not just folks learning normal eating. I own two Yahoo! message boards related to normal eating. One of them is entirely centered around this workbook because I was so impressed with it.

it's disturbing and factual, the information provided makes me realize just how out of touch one struggling with an eating disorder can get from healthy thinking about food. the emotional connections are vastly over looked, this book clears that information up
