You don’t need food to self-soothe! A straightforward guide to help you change your compulsive or emotional eating habits.
Are you feeding your feelings? We often turn to food for comfort, to cope with everyday stress and anxiety, and for other reasons that have nothing to do with physical hunger. In Stop Eating Your Heart Out, professional clinical counselor Meryl Hershey Beck teaches us that contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to eat your heart out.
Different types of eating disorders are marked by cycles of compulsive eating. Rather than focus on weight loss, Beck teaches us to recognize emotional eating and out of control comfort eating. With humorous anecdotes, learned wisdom, and informational insights she teaches readers to control cravings and live in recovery.
Compulsive eating is conquerable. Consider Stop Eating Your Heart Out to be brain food. Disclosing her very personal struggle with food and overcoming binge eating Beck doesn’t just use the Twelve-Step Recovery approach. She offers a multitude of effective self-help tools and assignments like:
· Inner Child work
· Creative visualizations and journaling
· Energy psychology techniques
· And more
