Publisher’s Description: 

All of us know the psychological power of comfort foods -- simple recipes and snacks that remind us of positive emotions, familiar places, and times past. For people with binge eating disorder (BED), the comforting power of food is strong enough to temporarily quell serious spiritual, emotional, and psychological issues that seem impossible to face. And as overeating spirals out of control, so do shame, self-loathing, and the emotional issues the sufferer was trying to avoid in the first place.

The Binge Eating and Compulsive Overeating Workbook presents an integrated body, mind, and spirit approach to getting at the root of disordered eating and developing a healthy relationship to food. The book offers proven-effective complementary, alternative, and allopathic techniques for correcting nutritional deficiencies, stopping bingeing, and learning healthy approaches to eating. Readers also learn mindfulness strategies for coping with stress, sadness, and anger, and determine whether or not they have co-occurring behaviors such as depression and substance abuse that may also be linked to their overeating.

People with BED and other overeating disorders can use this workbook to assess their BED triggers and symptoms, family health history, physical activity levels, and current diet, and develop personalized "New Me / Healthy Me" plans for the future. The book offers a healthy eating plan designed to meet the needs of binge eaters who are undernourished due to their unhealthy diets. Readers are also provided with up-to-date information on medication, behavioral therapies, and alternative remedies.
