Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the millions of people who suffer from eating disorders, finally a book that will help them to heal from overeating, undereating, or obsessing about food and weight.

In this compassionate and practical book, authors Normandi and Roark not only address the physical, emotional, and spiritual wounds that lie at the core of eating disorders, but they outline the useful and proven techniques they have developed in their Beyond Hunger workshops. It's Not About Food offers readers guidance in:
-- distinguishing the differences between physical hunger and emotional hunger;
-- developing compassion for themselves;
-- discovering a new and loving relationship with their bodies; and
-- exploring how to set boundaries, say no, and nurture themselves.

It's Not About Food assists readers in determining the differences between what their bodies crave to eat, what their minds think they should eat, and what their emotions are driving them to eat. In the traditions of Geneen Roth's When Food Is Love and Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol H. Munter's Overcoming Overeating, this nondiet approach explores the psychological and cultural issues underlying compulsive eating. It's Not About Food goes beyond other books by offering step-by-step exercises and meditations that allow readers to achieve freedom from the diet/binge cycle.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 206-210) and index.
