The Food and Feelings Workbook
A Full Course Meal on Emotional Health
(Gürze Books, 2007)
You can stop emotional eating. Discover how listening to your feelings is the key to improving your eating and your life. Rather than fear and avoid uncomfortable emotions, learn to view them as guideposts to happiness and success. Find out:
• The true purpose of emotions
• Why there is no such thing as “good” or “bad” feelings
• How to take care of yourself and your emotions without food
• How to value all your emotions and use them to create a better life
• How experiencing feelings will lead to trusting yourself and knowing when enough is enough with food and in life
I recommend this book to anyone who is seriously committed to breaking free of the tyranny of diets or eating disorders and is willing to do some tough emotional work. It has definitely changed my outlook on life.
Insightful, probing, wise, instructive, loving...and so many more words can describe this workbook. Overcoming emotional eating doesn't happen from passive reading. It happens from hard work with a therapist or with this workbook.
In a lighthearted way, Karen helps us to stop and identify our feelings in order to be successful in our recovery. While many books end there, Karen takes us beyond that and provides the tools to actually achieve full recovery. This book is relaxed and supportive and can be read in chapters or just a bit at a time.
I love the gentle approach of your wonderful book. It really spoke to my heart.
Can’t fully express how much this workbook helped my daughter (and me!). From an ED point of view, it's great: doesn't allow her to "feed" into ED behaviors. My daughter has had more success after working through this book than any other workbook she's completed (and she's done a lot!)
