From the Publisher:

Enlightened Eating is a compassionate, insightful, and nurturing guide to understanding and changing emotional eating patterns and creating healthier lives.

From the Author:

So many people today struggle with emotional eating as a way to cope with the increasing stress of our world. Reaching for food is a quick, easy, cheap, legal, and effective way to feel better in the moment, but it leads to a depressing cycle of overeating, weight gain, dieting, a sense of failure, loss of confidence, and more eating.

To change the pattern, we must learn to listen to our inner needs and emotions. Living is hard. Each of us deals with teasing, rejection, failure, loss, abuse, anger, and fear. Yet we do not know what to do with these powerful feelings, so we stuff them inside and hope they go away. We put on a positive appearance and pretend everything is OK. . .but then we find ourselves in the kitchen or at a vending machine or fast food line again.

By learning to listen to our inner selves, we discover a wisdom and strength that enriches our lives. When we take the time to handle our emotional reactions by listening rather than eating, we begin to untangle emotions, eating, and stress. This frees us up to create healthier lives, follow our dreams, and make our lives and the world around us better.
