Item Description...
The first book to address a disturbing new trend: dangerous eating patterns in midlife women that can have serious health consequences.
Struggling to cope with the stress of menopause, empty nest syndrome, caring for ailing parents, work overload, and the cultural emphasis on youth and beauty, more and more women find themselves eating compulsively to ease tension, manage anxiety, quell depression, and distract themselves from what's really eating them. Others obsessively follow strict diets or exercise excessively.
In this groundbreaking book, clinical psychologist Cynthia M. Bulik, Ph.D., and dietitian Nadine Taylor team up to present a patient-tested 8-step program to help women regain a healthy relationship with food. Readers also will find:
o A thorough explanation of the full spectrum of
Runaway Eating behaviors, from occasional lapses
into binge eating to restrictive dieting to compulsive exercising
o Alternative ways to alleviate anxiety and defuse
o Practical strategies for managing the menopausal symptoms that often lead to disordered eating

Reviews - What do our customers think?
helpful advice for those of us who have a conflicted relationship with food  Jan 25, 2006
An intelligent book- easy to read with a supportive tone, containing much needed information and guidelines for those of us who struggle with food issues.
As a counselor, I have been inspired to consider leading a support group with this book as part of the foundation.

Wake-up Call  Oct 14, 2005
If I didn't know better, I would think that the authors of this book had hidden cameras in my pantry (and in my subconscious). In just the first few pages, they perfectly described my over-eating episodes as if they'd been there with me while I devoured an entire bag of chocolate chips. And in the subsequent chapters they revealed the lies I've been telling myself in the back of my mind, helping me get honest with myself about my distorted view of my body, my eating, and how to find happiness. Although the book is clearly aimed at women in their mid-life (one of the 8 points in the plan is specific to menepause), I found most of the book applicable to me as a 30yo man who has fluctuated between over-eating and restricting my whole life. I feel like, for the first time in my life, a veil has been lifted that has revealed all the ridiculous lies I've been telling myself that keep me unhappy. I'm just starting out, trying to regain my ability to know when I'm really hungry (not tired, angry, bored, or depressed), and when I'm full (rather than eating until I'm sick). I already find I'm eating more than I convinced myself I should eat (though surely less than I was eating, since I'm not gorging on cookies anymore). I also have more energy and find myself able to deal with work and home with a smile, rather than succumbing to tension. If you've ever told yourself that your happiness is dependant on losing a few more pounds, or you've ever started eating a cake by taking a small slice, then rationalized another small slice, then another, and another and another, until the cake is nearly gone -- this book will be a kind, gentle wake-up call and help you take rational steps toward a healthy relationship with food.
An "Aha" moment  Sep 24, 2005
This book really turned on a light bulb for me. It clearly outlines what are called "subclinical" eating disorders. It also helped me to realize that my reaction to dieting was normal! What a relief to know that it's not just me. Included in the book are some written exercises to help you figure out what triggers your "runaway eating" episodes. It also addresses compulsive exercise, another very common problem.

I have been greatly encouraged to leave my dieting mentality behind. It may seem overly dramatic to say it was ruining my life, but it was! And those of you whose lives are driven by thoughts of what, when, and how much you will eat, and how long you must exercise know what I mean. You can experience freedom. It's scary, but you can! The book teaches you how to learn to listen to your body, and reestablish your hunger-feeding mechanism. Very helpful information. I put away my scale, but I can tell you that the fit of my clothes has not really changed since I started working in this book. I have not lost weight, but amazingly, I have been much more relaxed with food (and life) and I haven't piled on weight. I really think that once I get this down and some of the cravings for junk out of my system, that my weight will probably go down a little, though I am probably never going to be a size 6. I am also experiencing less dissatisfaction with my body-a miracle!

I cannot give all the credit to this book, as I have read others along the way that have emphasized my freedom in Christ that goes hand in hand with obedience.
Read This Book  Aug 5, 2005
I have had food 'issues' for years. I have read books on eating disorders but none of them really described me. This book described all of my behaviors and opened my eyes to the motivations behind them. I am working on using the methods suggested in the book.
a psychologist loves this book!  Jan 27, 2005
As a psychologist, I love this book! The perfect title for a great book on our culture's obsession with food and appearance. Even though it addresses eating disorders in menopausal women, two of my teenage patients have told me they feel it describes them in details not found in other books. The concrete solutions offered have helped them to change their thinking. They feel understood by the compassionate tone of the authors. I like the stress reduction techniques and their understanding of how thoughts lead to behaviors. Change your thoughts, change your behavior. This book can clearly help to heal.
