Publisher's Summary

Do you have an emotional attachment to eating that is ruining your life? Is it causing excess weight and leading to other health problems? Have you tried to lose weight, but nothing seems to work?

Emotional eating is a serious problem that affects growing numbers of people who effectively binge eat as a way of coping with their emotional needs, rather than addressing the issues at hand. Left unchecked it can lead to chronic health problems as well as the mental issues that also remain.

This audiobook, Emotional Eating: Get your Life Back with a Healthy Relationship with Food, has been written to help those who have a problem with emotional eating to stop what they are doing with helpful advice on:

  • Identify new ways to cope with stress
  • Finding the right support to help you
  • Fighting boredom
  • Removing the temptations that provoke binges
  • Eating healthy snacks
  • And much more...

A healthy lifestyle is essential if we want to have long and active lives and at the heart of this is eating sensible foods that provide us with the nutrition we need. Emotional Eating provides you with the tools you will need to beat your food binging and provide you with a much healthier lifestyle. Get a copy today!

awesome content and very hard work of author.

This workbook not only confronts the fact that many of us are emotional eaters, but it shows us how to identify that we are not eating because we are hunger, but because of our mood. Then with compassion, wisdom, and creativity she gives us ways that will help us stop emotional eating. It is so easy for us to just eat, to take our mind off other things. I am bored, so I will eat, or sad, or mad, lonely or any of many feelings.

Arrived in great!

The absolute best book I have ever listen on here….I threw away my scale over a year ago, and I've never been happier with eating what I want when I'm hungry….I re-listen this all the time!

Author is masterful in her approach to healing.

Author is masterful in her approach to healing and creating positive change for those who struggle with emotional eating. In her latest book she combines her wisdom and experience, and addresses the healing process of emotional eating into a workbook with a clear straightforward approach. I recommend this book for anyone who has issues around food and weight, and I especially find it helpful using it in my practice with my clients

I am working through the workbook now. It is quite thought provoking and really makes me get in touch feelings and memories that I had long buried, but not dealt with. I is a real eye-opener.

Don't waste your time and money

this book is not about emotional eating at all.
at best it's a weak guide on what diet you should choose and as far as emotional eating, the so called author's advice is to "stop this craziness "

This is a book about dieting, not emotional eating

Buyer beware! If emotional eating is the problem you’d like to address, this book is not for you. This is an incredibly high level survey of dieting, swollen with well-known and common sensical platitudes. Addressing the core problem-severing the attachment between emotional wellness and eating-is barely scratched. Save your money.

This book was great.

This book was great. I very much liked the mental exercises we had to do in order to get the most out of the book. This is NOT another diet book. This is the secret to maintaining weight without dieting and keeping the weight off. Why didn't somebody come up with this sooner! The root of the diet issue is managing emotions and this teaches you to do just that. As a physician, I'm delighted to see this available.

Weight reduction is scarcely referenced.

Weight reduction is scarcely referenced and passionate eating is drawn closer with regards to enthusiastic guideline and mindfulness. I am eating to some degree less in the wake of perusing this book (which I'm perusing again, something I NEVER do) yet I'm not eating less junk food. It bodes well and feels right.

I am actually still listing it.

I am actually still listing it. It almost feels like it was well explained for me! I have a notebook and I am doing every question/exercise. I have read several other books on emotional eating, but this one has been very helpful.

Very practical and helpful!

This was my 2nd time through listen and I am sure I will do it again successfully. It helps to use the practical tips and to know that others struggle with the same things that I do. Thanks to the author.

Effective way to get rid of Emotional Eating!!!

Controlling compulsive eating behaviour is the main reason that most diets fail. It becomes harder and harder to start a diet, knowing that you will eventually fail. But this works for me, and its possible for the David Colombo.

Great read for those needing a helping hand!!!

I thought that this was a great book. It was very helpful to learn the difference between the lizard brain and our higher selves and tips to stay on course to our goals. This is an excellent book that is definitely worth listening to.

It has been amazing at not only helping me!!

If you have made it this far and you are reading reviews, buy this audiobook. It has been amazing at not only helping me sort out emotions that lead to eating when I shouldn't but also given me guidance in dealing with emotions period.
