While diet advice typically aims at identifying triggers and strengthening self-restraint, clinical health psychologist Farkas contends that emotional eating is primarily owing to the rejection of the control necessitated by dieting—a desire to “be bad.” Farkas seeks to help readers change their mind-sets about dieting through the use of his eight keys, which include breaking the diet mentality, resolving inner conflict, and upgrading coping mechanisms.
VERDICT Farkas’s angle of eating for defiance will touch a nerve but will also offer help to instill a constructive response in many overeaters seeking ways to get to the core of the behavior.
