This book by Jennifer L. Taitz is a wonderful and concise exploration about how to cope with difficult emotions and develop a healthy relationship with food.
This book really filled in a gap in my knowledge base about healthy eating. I am definitely an emotional eater, and I learned a lot about how to cope and avoid such triggers.
This book will introduce you to the latest tools found in clinical and research psychology to help you manage emotions in a way that lets you live in the present. If you are afraid of or uncomfortable with emotions and find yourself trying to suppress them by using food, this book will provide you with practical skills to navigate them. After all, there is no alternative: living means feeling. However, it is how we deal with our feelings that makes us healthy or less than healthy.
Mindfulness can help us substantially to get a handle on our emotions. That was my big aha moment as I read this book. I found so many tools to finally get a way to handle those strong emotions that caused me to overeat and to put on a lot of weight.
Anyone who struggles with their emotions or their weight or both will find this book invaluable.
Thank you Jennifer Taitz for such a wonderful book!
