Do you struggle to stay committed to a diet meal plan because you just are constantly hungry?
Does food provide you comfort in your loneliest moments?
In this thought-provoking and practical book, When Food Is Your Drug will help you determine the extent of your emotional eating issue and how to go about addressing it. Emotional eaters know they have a relationship with food that is not “normal” but pinpointing the exact problem and then knowing what to do about it has remained a mystery for many until now. Through a no-nonsense process, you will be able to identify your specific triggers that set off your desire to emotionally eat, learn where they originated from in your past, and then take the necessary steps to accept, forgive, and rewrite your relationship with food so it serves you positively moving forward.
In When Food Is Your Drug, you will learn strategies to:
Differentiate between emotional hunger and physical hunger
Be present in your body when eating so you recognize feelings of satisfaction
Use food appropriately and not let it be an escape or distraction from difficult or uncomfortable feelings
Distinguish what you are truly hungry for and have self-care activities ready and waiting when they are needed
Rewrite your relationship with food so it serves you in a positive way and allows you to move past events that have influenced your food issues
When Food Is Your Drug empowers readers to take control of not only their relationship with food, but more importantly, their relationship with themselves. When that relationship is in a good place, all other relationships flourish and thrive. Now is the time to get all of your relationships healthy and When Food Is Your Drug takes you step by step through how to do that.
