Because they don't address your reasons for overeating. In Shrink Yourself, renowned psychiatrist and emotional eating expert Dr. Roger Gould offers the first step-by-step analysis of the connection between eating and emotion and shows you how to break the emotional eating cycle, shed your excess pounds, and keep them off for good. Based on Dr. Gould's unique method and his work involving more than twenty thousand people, this revolutionary eight-session program will help you slim down permanently without ever counting calories again.
