When I saw this book I have to admit I had my doubts, who puts an opened packet of biscuits on the front cover of a weight lose book! But that aside I thought I’d give it a go I’ve spent so much time, effort and money getting nowhere I really didn’t have much to lose. I’m so glad I did, I’ve only had the book for a few weeks and yes as the author says, it’s not going to be easy but things worth the effort often are.
As you go through the book it’s a bit like having your own therapy you really start to uncover the reasons why you eat, opportunity, habit, sometimes real hunger, but it’s the emotional reasons which I have not been dealing with for the past 20 odd years which are the real reasons I’ve been eating too much for too long. So once you start doing some proper work on this only then can you even begin to have a chance to stop yourself over eating.
As I said it’s not going to be a walk in the park, but what proper diet ever is? But by sticking to the principles mostly following the food plan that is included I moved a few things on it around as I’m not a huge fan of anything too spicy but there are plenty of other alternatives meals I can have.Read more ›
It’s easy to see emotional eating as an instinctive response to an immediate trigger, such as reaching for the biscuit tin after a disappointment. But Dr McCartney explains that the chain of emotional events that leads to that response may be long and difficult to unravel.
So each section of the book invites the reader to think about a different aspect of their emotional eating, from the immediate trigger, to why they may feel vulnerable in certain situations, and about the relationships that may have led to feelings of low self-worth and belief in negative emotional messages.
Readers who have issues with emotional eating might be tempted to skip to the ‘start to stop’ techniques in Session 3, but Dr McCartney stresses that understanding needs to come before the links between the emotional trigger and the eating response can be broken. She sets out a short-term technique to deal with an ‘in the moment’ urge to eat emotionally, and a longer-term exercise to work through difficult emotions and to learn to manage them rather than smother them with food. There is also a section on how to challenge the negative emotional messages that can be internalized and can so easily undermine efforts to lose weight or tackle other challenging life-goals.
The final part of the book is a 28-day Eating Plan that readers are encouraged to follow while they are working through the four weekly sessions. It features breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts and snack ideas, with lots of recipes.Read more ›

Not for me, though it's not the book's fault - I don't fit into the categories of over eaters described here. Could be helpful for those who can relate to the examples given.Published 3 months ago by GrannyRuth
