From the Back Cover:

Read this book before you start your next diet

There is nothing emotionally neutral about eating. Food and feelings are so powerfully intertwined that depression, anxiety, boredom, and loneliness can transform a harmless nosh into an out-of-control binge.

How can you lose weight when your emotions keep getting in the way?

Dr. Edward Abramson has developed a proven plan that can help almost anyone get off the endless roller coaster of emotional eating and learn how to take control. Based on solid scientific studies and clinical research, Emotional Eating reveals how to end destructive eating habits by learning to identify individual emotional triggers and develop healthy alternative behaviors. Written for anyone who has tried to diet and failed, the book is filled with practical techniques and self-scoring assessment tests that will help to end the destructive cycle of emotional eating.

“This pioneering book gives individuals the tools they need to take charge of their emotions...and effectively manage their weight. Highly recommended.”
—JOHN P. FOREYT, PHD, director, Nutrition Research Clinic, Baylor College of Medicine

“Anyone who has struggled with eating and weight will feel empowered by Abramson’s emphasis on self-determination.... Emotional Eating is a very important addition to the bibliotherapy library.”
—BRENDA L. WOLFE, PHD, director, Research/Client Relations, Jenny Craig, Inc.

Emotional Eating was a Book of the Month Club Featured Alternate Selection and has been highlighted in The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Reader’s Digest, Smithsonian, and The Washington Post.
