Susan Albers, Psy.D. presents a groundbreaking three-step program for conquering emotional eating—a practical, prescriptive, proactive approach using Emotional Intelligence that will help you slim down, eat healthfully and mindfully, and keep the pounds off.
Introduced by the author of the bestselling The Hormone Cure, Sara Gottfried MD, Eat.Q. goes beyond traditional diet books to explore the link between emotions and eating, revealing how, when you increase your Emotional Intelligence, you naturally increase your ability to successfully manage your weight. Explaining the link between a high Eat.Q. and a good relationship with food, clinical psychologist Dr. Albers guides you through the most common emotional barriers to healthy and mindful eating, and offers 25 tools and techniques you can use to tailor the plan to your individual needs.
Grounded in dozens of clinical studies that associate a low Emotional Intelligence with poor eating habits—including eating past fullness, eating when your angry or bored, and overeating favorite foods—Eat.Q. offers hope and help that works for anyone, no matter how many times they've tried to manage emotional eating in the past.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is a must read for anyone who has lost hope when it comes to their weight. I recently lost 15 pounds using an awesome dieting solution, but I have been in constant fear that I will gain all of that weight back. Eat Q is helping me get to the root cause of why I got fat in the beginning. This book is very motivational and chock-full of practical, easy to apply tools. I feel like I finally have the insight I need to overcome a lifetime of emotional eating once and for all! If you want to lose weight, buy The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution, it is a shameless plug, but who cares! It works! If you want to know why you are on this emotional roller coaster with your weight, buy this book. I highly recommend both books for anyone who has tried many things to lose weight and who is feeling like giving up.
