Description: Whether you struggle with weight, over focus on food, or obsess about your body, End Emotional Eating will help you deepen and broaden your life`s focus. If you feel overwhelmed by emotions, this book will provide you with practical skills to navigate them. Eating is a part of life and this book is about living in a way that is meaningful and expansive. Unlike hundreds of other books, it will not tell you what, when, or how much to eat. End Emotional Eating will address the psychological aspects of eating and food obsessing and introduce you to the latest tools found in clinical and research psychology to manage emotions in a way that lets you live effectively in the present and change your relationship with both eating and yourself.
Book Review: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an effective treatment for a variety of psychological disorders. Never before has the wisdom of DBT, as it applies to emotional eating, been so clearly articulated. Authored by a master clinician and talented writer, Dr. Jennifer Taitz artfully describes how to transform your relationship with food and with life. I highly recommend that you read the book if you want to gain a new perspective on your emotional reactions and change the way you think about and respond to impulses to eat. This is not a diet book – it is a book that will provide nourishment for your soul and psyche. A genuine treat!

This is not a weight loss book. It is something much, much better. If you have tried over and over to control your weight and your eating, maybe it is time to let go of that agenda. This is a book about changing your fundamental relationship with food and eating--and importantly, your relationship with you! Imagine that you could come into a gentler, more compassionate relationship with yourself and with eating. If you want to explore a kinder approach, this is the book for you.

End Emotional Eating by Dr. Jenny Taitz may be the beginning for you in a new relationship with food and your feelings. Who hasn`t had a craving for food that came from a sense of emptiness, anxiety or anger? Who hasn`t found themselves eating--and not knowing it? This book is filled with powerful metaphors, empowering messages, and mental and emotional exercises that will keep you from eating away at your feelings. Accessible, intelligent, and compassionate, this book can help you find a new way of experiencing and using emotions. You will find wisdom that you can use every day. I highly recommend this book.
