Want to Lose Weight... But Hooked on Food?: How to Break Free and Win!

Author(s): Wendy Perkins

Health and Wellbeing

This book links brain chemistry and co-dependency to emotional overeating. Much has been written about the current epidemic of obesity. However, very little is known about brain chemistry and co-dependency (dysfunctional learned behaviour) resulting in low self-esteem. Emotional overeating is but a symptom of an underlying problem and overeaters have good reason to investigate why their brain chemistry and emotions play havoc with food intake. This book could be valuable to you if you use food as a comfort during stressful times, think about food too much, feel guilty or disgusted with yourself if you eat too much food, go on eating binges, find dieting makes you irritable, and feel depressed about your inability to lose weight. This book explains why your natural mood enhancing chemicals could be deficient due to inherited deficiencies, prolonged stress, regular use of drug-like foods such as refined sugars and flours, and eating too little protein. Solutions outlined in Hooked on Food include understanding how your negative beliefs influence your dieting success, how to overcome the emotional overeating connection, learning how brain chemistry can affect your inability to lose weight, and strategies to help lose weight and keep it off.
