#4 Let Go of Emotional Overeating and Love Your Food by Arlene B. Englander

Let Go of Emotional Overeating and Love Your Food: A Five Point Plan for Success (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018) is for anyone who wishes they could eat what they like, savor it, and stop just at the point of satisfaction without overeating. Readers learn how to become aware of the difference between eating in a healthy way and eating emotionally -neither to satisfy hunger, nor for enjoyment, but in a desperate attempt to distract oneself from painful thoughts and feelings.

When we handle stress well away from the table, we’re free to relax and really savor our food when we choose to eat. Proven techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindful Eating are presented in a uniquely pleasure oriented, yet user-friendly way.

The plague of perfectionism – often experienced while we are developing our careers, our family lives and our sense of identity – often all at the same time – in our 30’s is dealt with and many practical pointers are provided. A section subtitled “the joys of ‘B+/A-‘ living” provides a number of helpful suggestions.
