There is an end to the anguish of emotional eating—and Geneen Roth has made it her life’s work to help people heal their relationship with food through an understanding of the deeply personal and spiritual issues at the root of compulsive eating.
In this edition of Breaking Free From Emotional Eating, updated with a new introduction, Roth outlines her proven program for resolving the conflicts at the heart of overeating using simple techniques developed in her highly successful seminars to offer reassuring, practical advice on:
• Learning to recognize the signals of physical hunger
• Eating without distraction
• Knowing when to stop
• Kicking the scale-watching habit
• Withstanding social and family pressures
And more!
