When Food Is Comfort: Nurture Yourself Mindfully, Rewire Your Brain, and End Emotional Eating

We rated this book:


In nature, healthy animals only eat when they are hungry–when their bodies actually need sustenance. Eating in the absence of hunger indicates something is wrong. Do you ever eat when you are not actually hungry? Perhaps when you are stressed, or have had a bad experience, or maybe you are feeling bored…. If you turn to food when you’re not hungry, you may be looking for it to solve an emotional, rather than a physical need. Of course this doesn’t eliminate the problem, and often leads to eating disorders, including excess weight. In this brilliant book, author Julie Simon helps readers recognize the true causes of emotional eating, with specific steps to take to curb it. Key to this program is developing your own “Inner Nurturer” –your personal resource for emotional comfort and soothing, so you no longer have to turn to external sources such as food. Simon is gentle and validating and shows you how to overcome years of negative emotional experiences. Her examples, taken from her therapy practice, illustrate how to use the skills she offers. This book and method are truly life-changing; if you have ever struggled with emotional eating, you need this book.
