This book can be a guide for intuitive eating, but I have to think there are clearer and less irritating books on the topic out there. Did you ever have someone in college who acted really cool tell you about this "amazing" new music they found, and when you listen it's just some artless hack yowling like a cat and scratching at washboards, and the kid looks at you like "do you get it, too?" This is how this author explains intuitive eating, with a ton of snobbery and unsaid components that you ...more

Read my full review here: http://mimi-cyberlibrarian.blogspot.c...

The subtopic for the book, Let Go of Emotional Overeating and Love Your Food, is “A five-point plan for success.” And indeed it is exactly that. This is not a diet plan; there is no connected cookbook; and there is no daily eating guideline. Englander is a psychotherapist so she approaches the problem of overeating from the standpoint of the emotions. She helps her readers learn how to savor meals as a way to relearn how to eat to

Englander’s writing style is easy to follow and includes a nice blend of professional wisdom and client anecdotes. I found her tips useful and clear. My one critique (and the reason I didn’t give it 5 stars) is that I found her attitude toward running off-putting. She raised far more objection to this particular type of exercise than any other she listed. In my humble opinion, if you’re trying to get people excited about exercise, leave the options wide open. Running can be hard on the body, as ...more

A different kind of diet book.

This book will not give you a list of things to eat and avoid eating. It focuses on how you think about food. I have tried many different diet and exercise programs over the years only to gain back the weight afterward. I do thing emotional eating has always been an issue for me. This book confirmed emotional eating is an issue for me and provided me with a step by step system to overcome emotional eating.

I highly recommend this book to any weight-conscious person.

This book is fantastic! I am a stress eater and it seems to be an endless cycle when anxiety or depression drives the need to find stress relief by eating. I love that this book isn't about how you need to eat this and not that, instead, it gives you steps that help you change your brain and the way you think about eating in general. It isn't that food is bad, but that letting emotions charge your eating behavior can be dangerous. I love how Englander elaborates on this and helps you develop the ...more

Short and sweet book with some good, helpful tips.
Stephanie
Thanks to netgalley and the publishers for a free digital ARC of this book. I felt like I got a few helpful points from this book, however there just seemed to be way too much irrelevant information.
Diane
A lot of good, practical information here to help combat this problem.

My Recommendation: I would definitely recommend it and I may re-read it again in the future. I thoroughly enjoyed Englander's writing style and found her tips and tricks truly helpful. I'm not sure the book alone has helped me discover what it is that makes me overeat, I'm guessing boredom if that's what I do, but I feel that's something I would need to explore more with an actual person rather than just a book.

My Response: Toward the middle of last year I started accepting fewer and fewer unsol

4.1/5 (digital copy provided by Netgalley and publisher for an honest review)

Short review:
A 'diet' book I can get behind! Although it isn't a diet book per se.


This book consists of several chapters that could help as CBT therapy on overeating/dieting. Although I'd suggest everyone to consult face to face with a therapist. There are steps to take, and I like how there's no judgement in the words. Some tips I've known, some came as a surprise for me. Reading the clients' experiences also helps to

The author is someone who has experience emotional overeating and is also a psychotherapist, so this book has the advantage of having expert and real life experience. The author provided information on how to know if you are an emotional overeater and strategies on how to control your eating habits.

Atopic that resonates with me...and one which has occupied way too much of my time over the years! This book is well done, and IMHO would be useful for anyone who struggles with this issue of emotional overeating--or is in close relationship with someone for whom it is an issue.

I've gone to Weight Watchers (now known as WW) for years, and their recent changes (some controversial among members) focus on eating mindfully, focus on health rather than a number on the scale, and really looking at the
