Rowman & Littlefield. Aug. 2018. 172p. ISBN 9781538111192. $36. SELF-HELP
Englander, a licensed psychotherapist and former emotional overeater, identifies the stressors of emotional eating—using food as a way to distract oneself from painful thoughts and feelings—and demonstrates how to rework negative thoughts into productive actions. The goal is to eat in a more pleasure-oriented, self-regulated manner and to maintain a better balance between joys derived from life and those derived from food. Readers further learn how positive self-talk can help them lower stress, love healthy foods, savor meals, and even enjoy exercise. She also speaks to situations in which overindulging is likely to occur, including late-night eating, parties, and vacations.
VERDICT Compassionate wisdom for all who suffer from emotional overeating.
