The ritual of eating becomes so calming, you can't stop-and the guilt and self-criticism you feel can lead you to overeat even more the next day. What you may not know is that simply replacing your negative feelings with compassion for yourself can interrupt this cycle so that you can meet your emotional needs without resorting to overeating. The Compassionate-Mind Guide to Ending Overeating presents an evidence-based program designed to help you grow a deep and abiding love for your body and health that transcends your emotional connection with food. As you work through the worksheets and evaluations in this book, you'll discover the specific reasons for your overeating, find out which foods trigger you to overeat, and then develop satisfying meal plans for getting your eating back on track. You'll also build compassionate-mind skills for dealing with stress, self-criticism, and shame, and establish a balanced eating pattern that will free you from the overeating cycle.
Make peace with food and break free from yo-yo dieting and compulsive eating forever. Why do 90 percent of even the most resolute dieters fail over the long term? Why do some people binge on ice cream when they experience stress? Sometimes food cravings can be so consuming that they feel like an uncontrollable addiction. But as Dr. Balasa L. Prasad explains in Stop Overeating for Good, there is no such thing as an addiction to food. If you want to stop overeating for good, the answer is in your mind, not your body. Only when you understand the psychological triggers that are really driving your overeating, can you permanently curb your cravings. With Dr. Prasad's proven and practical six-step program readers will: - identify their addictive profile with an insightful questionnaire - understand why they use food as a crutch and why they must stop - turn off obsessive thoughts about food - learn to avoid the temptations and pitfalls that lure them back to overeating - change their relationship with food forever

Beyond a Shadow of a Diet is the most comprehensive book available for professionals working with clients who struggle with Binge Eating Disorder, Compulsive Eating or Emotional Overeating.
