Some people use food to calm themselves when they feel overwhelmed. Others find it difficult to discern between eating out of hunger and eating out of habit. There are nearly as many reasons why people overeat as there are reasons to stop. While overeating can often bring comfort in the short term, it can lead to feelings of guilt later on. If you feel like you're caught in a cycle of unhealthy eating that you can't stop, this workbook can help you overcome it.

In The Binge Eating and Compulsive Overeating Workbook, you'll learn skills and nutrition guidelines recommended by doctors and therapists for healthy eating and how to quell the often overpowering urge to overeat. Using a variety of practices drawn from complementary and alternative medicine, you'll replace unhealthy habits with nourishing rewards and relaxation practices. This potent combination of therapies will help you end your dependence on overeating as a way to cope with unpleasant feelings and shows you how to develop new strategies for a healthier lifestyle.

This workbook will help you:

•Identify the trigger foods and feelings that spur you to binge or overeat
•Determine how stress, depression, and anxiety may be affecting your eating
•Calm yourself in stressful times with nourishing self-care practices
•Learn to appreciate and accept your body

Very triggering. Starts first several chapters about BMI (which is essentially useless) and basically telling you you're fat (as if you didn't know already).
