Book Overview

Food has the power to temporarily alleviate stress and sadness, enhance joy, and bring us comfort when we need it most. It's no wonder experts estimate that 75 percent of overeating is triggered by our emotions, not physical hunger. The good news is you can instead soothe yourself through dozens of mindful activities that are healthy for both body and mind. Susan Albers, author of Eating Mindfully, now offers 50 Ways to Soothe Yourself Without Food,...

No god? No "Secret"? No angels? No problem!!

I love this book! It gets to the heart of mindful eating without invoking God or angels or the Secret or deep Buddhist philosophy. The writer give solid, concrete ways to self-soothe so that the reader becomes enabled to eat mindfully. There is no delving into any dieting theory, just practical tools to end the problem of emotional overeating immediately. Isn't that what we are all looking for in weight loss books?

Some "Reader-Friendly" hints on Being Kind to Yourself!

Susan Albers,after explaining various reasons for eating...other than the obvious, allows us to pick and choose among fifty reasons why we might have purchased this book. We can learn how to handle situations that lead us to unhealthy eating. Easy to understand, practical suggestions! A great approach to those of us intrigued by the term "Behavioral Modification"! Now, to put it into practice!

A great resource to help stop mindless eating

As a psychologist, I'm frequently on the lookout for books that can help the people I work with. Dr. Albers's book is an excellent resource for people who are struggling with eating issues. As many people struggle with eating mindlessly (when they're not hungry or are upset, for example), it is important to learn other ways to cope with difficult emotions. She gives an overview of mindfulness and then details 50 exercises focusing on different ways to redirect the impulse towards self-destructive behavior. Many of the exercises in this book would work well for people dealing with other problems too, such as substance abuse.

A Book for Stress Eaters

I saw this book in the Washington Post. A few days later I actually hear the author on the radio. She seemed to make a lot of sense. I was surprised at how much this book described my stress eating to a tee. I can identify with many of the stories. I keep the book in the kitchen and read it when I'm tempted to eat because I'm nervous or stressed out (which is often!). It's helped me a lot.
