Overview

People with normal eating patterns eat when they are hungry and stop when they are full. But people struggling with binge eating relate very differently to this most basic need, often risking depression, gastrointestinal problems, and even death because of their problems with food. The Appetite Awareness Workbook offers an eight-week, cognitively based program to help you learn to pay attention to hunger cues, keep track of your feelings about food, and develop an eating schedule that discourages binge eating.

In a series of easy exercises, the book guides you toward taking control of eating habits. First, gradual changes help you eat only when hungry or when a mealtime is scheduled. Then, awareness exercises help you stop eating when moderately full. Finally, by using cognitive techniques to control the tendency to eat for emotional reasons and journaling exercises to stay motivated and on track, you'll learn how to retrain yourself to maintain normal and healthy eating habits for life.

    Highly Recommended - a new way of life/eating, not a diet.

    Research-backed, clinically-proven helpful advice for anyone struggling with their weight or with food issues, and even for individuals with more severe eating disorders. Written in a very easily relatable, compassionate, understandable style. I am a counselor working with obese and over-weight individuals struggling with a variety of eating and weight-related issues like binge eating and emotional eating, and I've found these materials very helpful. I've adapted some of the worksheet materials from the book, and always get positive feedback from my clients after using it.

    One of the best ever!

    I just wrote a whole review and it didn't save! I need to say that this is the best approach I've ever come across and it is revolutionary in that it teaches you to trust yourself and monitor your own appetite! I have been dealing with moderately to extremely disordered eating for twenty years but I this is the approach I will use for good. I am extremely grateful to Ms. Craighead and I wish I found this approach long ago. Try it and set yourself free!
