Overview

Despite our best intentions, many of us find ourselves routinely overeating at meals, snacking mindlessly, or bingeing regularly. As emotional eaters, we turn to food for comfort, soothing, distraction, and excitement. There’s a disconnection fueling our eating, robbing years from our lives, and we know it. We’re tired of restrictive diets that lead back to overeating, and we’re ready to try something different.

Therapist and life coach Julie Simon offers a new approach that addresses the true causes of overeating and weight gain: emotional and spiritual hunger and body imbalance. The Emotional Eater’s Repair Manual presents five self-care skills, five body-balancing principles, and five soul-care practices that can end overeating and dieting forever. You’ll learn to nurture yourself without turning to food, to correct body and brain imbalances that trigger overeating, and to address your soul’s hunger. Weight loss, more energy, improved health, and self-esteem will naturally follow.

    I love this book!  A friend recommended I read this and I am so

    I love this book!  A friend recommended I read this and I am so thrilled! The Emotional Eater's Repair Manual' is the first
    I've ever seen that approaches this subject of overeating from the perspective of more than just
    'willpower'. Willpower is hard to maintain. Learning to love and care for myself (by practicing self- and
    soul-care skills and body balancing principles the author carefully lays out) is refreshing. This book
    has helped me to see that losing weight and being healthy doesn't have to be so hard.
    There's so much valuable info and practical tools on how I can care for myself to be healthy in mind,
    body and spirit. I really think it's a worthwhile read for anyone, not just emotional eaters, who wants
    tools to help deal with their stress and anyone who wants to find inner happiness.

    Throw out your scale and pick up this book! Here are the keys to free yourself from your obsession with food, weight, and dieting. Based on her own recovery, Julie Simon offers invaluable insights into the causes and cures for emotional eating. Her approach is unique and represents a multi-dimensional step-by-step guide that provides many tools to heal the underlying issues thal fuel emotional eating. She delivers her message in a well-written, comprehensive, and concise way.

    I now have hope that I can finally stop bingeing and yo-yo dieting and change my relationship with food. Using these techniques, I am learning to nurture myself, to reframe negative thoughts, and to manage stress without using food. Adopting a predominantly unprocessed whole foods eating plan has miraculously lessened my cravings for sugar, and this has had a really positive effect on my mood and health. This has been truly life-changing for me. This book is a must-read for all emotional eaters. I highly recommend it.l
