Food: The Good Girl's Drug: How to Stop Using Food to Control Your Feelings

Author: Sunny Sea Gold

Bingeing, compulsive eating, food addiction, emotional overeating-no matter what you call it, too many women wrestle day to day with what they eat. It's a love-hate relationship that always seems to be spiralling out of control. Food: The Good Girl's Drug is one recovered binge eater's attempt to inject some sanity back into the discussion about food, body image, and overeating. Sunny Sea Gold started fighting a binge eating disorder in her teens. But books on the topic were often aimed at housewives with kids and a white picket fence, women she had a hard time relating to. What about the girls who found themselves using all their roommate's peanut butter, nibbling from the work refrigerator, or hiding a stash of chocolate from boyfriends, and were too ashamed to say anything? Calling on top mental health professionals, nutritionists, and fitness experts, Sunny offers real advice to a new generation fighting an age-old war. Filled with humor and compassion Food: The Good Girl's Drug is about experiences shared by so many women-whether they've been struggling their whole lives, or have recently admitted to themselves that, yes, it's more than just a bad habit.

The brain over binge recovery guide

The Brain Over Binge Recovery Guide: A Simple and Personalized Plan for Ending Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder

Author: Kathryn Hansen

This book is a much-requested follow-up to "Brain over Binge" (2011), in which the author shared how she used a basic understanding of neuroscientific principles to overcome bulimia. In this sequel and companion volume, with the help of fellow specialists and authors Amy Johnson, Ph.D., Katherine Thomson, Ph.D., and others, Kathryn Hansen lays out those same principles-and many more-in a self-help format that encourages and enables binge eaters to recover efficiently and effectively. Although recovery is not the same for everyone, this book posits that there are only two essential goals that must be met to end bulimia and binge eating disorder: (1) learning to dismiss urges to binge and (2) learning to eat adequately. As you work toward these goals with a streamlined focus, you will discover your own strength, develop your own insights, and put into practice ideas and behaviors that work uniquely and authentically for you. The Brain over Binge Recovery Guide is comprehensive in its length and scope, but utterly simple in its approach: You will read and use only what you need-continuing on in the book if you feel you need more information and guidance; putting it down and moving on with your life when you feel you're ready-so that you can start living binge-free as quickly and easily as possible.
