I saw a discussion about the book by Dorie McCubbrey. Finally got a copy from inter-library loan. I skimmed it over the last couple days. It looks interesting. It's supposed to be "Diet free solutions to your food, weight and body worrries."
I know that when I started confronting my emotional eating I lost weight, when I started to take responsibility for my own happiness/contentment instead of eating the contents of the fridge because I was unhappy with life in general the weight seemed to melt off.
One paragraph that sticks out
'Weight problems are not about weight. Eating disorders are not about eating. We need to go beyond the external symptoms to address the internal cause. From anorexia to obesity and everywhere in between, all these symptoms reflect an attachment to the world and detachment from our intuitive guidance. When we reconnect with our intuitive guidance, weight problems solve them selves."
It's a thought provoking book.
