Ever eaten an entire bag of chips in one sitting and then felt bad about it? Do you do this often? Has it been going on for 3 months or more? If so, it could be a problem – binge-eating can lead to other eating disorders. And, like other eating disorders, binge-eating can be a symptom or sign of an emotional disorder as well.
‘Stop Bingeing, Start Living‘ is a book that not only takes an in-depth look at binge-eating, but it also covers the step you can take, on your own even, to curb your need to eat too much and learn to have a better relationship with your food.
What I love most about this book is that it takes a holistic approach to healing the underlying causes of your binge-eating. Once it walks you through bingeing, to help you understand it, it then covers how to rewire your brain so that you can look at food, and your relationship with it, differently.
I love the array of tips and exercises offered within the pages – it’s definitely written to guide you toward freedom from your addiction to food. The author introduces you to things like CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), to help you with a mindful eating plan.
This book will help you be in control of food, instead of making you feel like food is in control of you. I binge-eat junk food when it’s in the house, and this book is helping me see that I am in control of how much I eat, and I don’t have to eat all of something just because it is there – I am learning new ways to cope with my “boredom” eating habits.
I received this book free from the publisher, and this is an honest and unbiased review.
