It’s no secret that our emotions are connected to our eating patterns. Just looking at the introduction in ‘7 Simple Steps to Stop Emotional Eating’ by Sally Baker and Liz Hogon you are faced with nine simple questions about emotional eating:
Too much on your plate?
Swallowing down your anger with food?
Frustrated at your yo-yo dieting?
Eating when bored, or on your own?
Feeling out of control around food?
Eating in secret?
Bingeing and purging?
Feeling sad and eating to fill a void inside?
Rewarding yourself with food after a hard day?
Quite easy to relate to at least one isn’t it?
Sally Baker has been working in London as a therapist for over a decade and Liz Hogon has been in full-time practice since 2002. They both are advanced level practitioners in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also trained in Percussive Suggestion Technique (PSTEC) and hypnotherapy.
7 Simple Steps to Stop Emotional Eating shows you how to target your body by changing your mind. With this book giving you a detailed insight into some of these techniques, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and showing how successful they can be.
In addition to explaining how these alternative therapies work, the book itself comes equipped with exercises and worksheets on how to practise them on yourself. Everything is explained in an easy to read manner and there are LOADS of downloads listed so you can compile a great case study on yourself (in addition to reading the ones in the book).
It’s just Seven Simple Steps. It would take six or seven weeks if you were working with Sally and Liz so they suggest devoting that amount of time to work yourself through the book.
