Eating can be a source of great pleasure—or deep distress. If you’ve picked up this book, chances are you’re looking for tools to transform your relationship with food. Grounded in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), this motivating guide offers a powerful pathway to change. Drs. Debra L. Safer, Sarah Adler, and Philip C. Masson have translated their proven, state-of-the-art treatment into a compassionate self-help resource for anyone struggling with bingeing and other types of “stress eating.” You will learn to:
Identify your emotional triggers.
Cope with painful or uncomfortable feelings in new and healthier ways.
Gain awareness of urges and cravings without acting on them.
Break free from self-judgment and other traps.
Practice specially tailored mindfulness techniques.
Make meaningful behavior changes, one doable step at a time.
Vivid examples and stories help you build each DBT skill. Carefully crafted practical tools (you can download and print additional copies as needed) let you track your progress and fit the program to your own needs. Finally, freedom from out-of-control eating—and a happier future—are in sight.

Editorial Reviews

"The emotional side of out-of-control eating is powerful and real. This easy-to-read, research-based book helps you gain awareness of—and break—the links between emotional distress and food. Highly recommended.”
