From #1 New York Times bestselling author Geneen Roth, an exploration of the link between dieting, compulsive eating, and emotion, complete with life-changing advice on how to break the binge-diet cycle forever.
There is an end to the anguish of emotional eating—and Geneen Roth has made it her life’s work to help people heal their relationship with food through an understanding of the deeply personal and spiritual issues at the root of compulsive eating.
In this edition of Breaking Free From Emotional Eating, updated with a new introduction, Roth outlines her proven program for resolving the conflicts at the heart of overeating using simple techniques developed in her highly successful seminars to offer reassuring, practical advice on:
• Learning to recognize the signals of physical hunger
• Eating without distraction
• Knowing when to stop
• Kicking the scale-watching habit
• Withstanding social and family pressures
And more!
By not only explaining the cause of emotional binge eating but also providing actionable techniques for readers to implement in their own lives, Breaking Free continues to help people end the binge-diet-cycle once and for all.
