Break the binge/diet cycle today!
Based on Marilyn Migliore's highly successful treatment program, which she designed at St. Luke's-Roosevelt/A University Hospital of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, The Hunger Within offers a twelve-week program for compulsive overeaters that provides real hope for lifelong weight loss.
If you've struggled with weight your whole life, chances are you know that diets don't work, and that most people who lose weight put it back on. Finally, here is a book that takes the focus off food and guides dieters through an intensive psychological program that includes daily writing exercises to help the compulsive eater get in touch with the hungry child within.
The Hunger Within shows the yo-yo dieter how his or her individual struggle with eating and weight is a response to feelings of emotional deprivation that are established in early childhood, when the ways we're soothed and punished are established. This concrete, lucid, step-by-step guide explores the core reasons for overeating, identifies the triggers that precipitate bingeing, and helps readers to break the vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting. Each week, the reader listens in on three fictional program participants, and is encouraged to do the weekly exercises as if participating him- or herself.
If you've wanted to join a group or treatment program to help you lose weight, or if you're a last-ditch dieter, The Hunger Within offers a guided course that you can do in your own home and at your own pace.
