This revealing and useful book tells how emotions can cause bad eating habits and provides an effective antidote to radical crash diets. The author uses a cognitive-behavioral approach, and offers an encouraging alternative to current theories on the causes on overeating, such as psychopathology, addiction, or moral weakness. Emotional Eating shows how to identify individual patterns of emotional eating, and then tells readers how to respond to these patterns. Filled with tables charts, and self-assessment tests, Emotional Eating can help you learn self-control by identifying emotional triggers and developing alternative behaviors.
