"Though it shares many similarities with eating disorders, emotional eating is embedded in and accepted by our culture in many ways. Happy events and celebrations call for indulgence and overeating, but so do the lowest emotional points. Emotional eatingbecomes a problem when this dysfunctional eating pattern becomes a go-to mechanism for coping with depression, anxiety, loss, rejection, and anger. End Emotional Eating offers skills based in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) for alleviating readers' reliance on emotional eating. New and emerging research indicates that DBT, while originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD), can dramatically improve anyone's ability to handle the out-of-control emotions that are often at the rootof this eating pattern. Readers learn to experience cravings without acting on them and enjoy food while respecting their bodies and their health"--

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) expert and clinical psychologist Jenny Taitz presents End Emotional Eating, a comprehensive guide to overcoming the emotional eating issues that are at the root of most overeating and binge eating difficulties.

If you eat to help manage your emotions, you may have discovered that it doesn’t work. Once you’re done eating, you might even feel worse. Eating can all too easily become a strategy for coping with depression, anxiety, boredom, stress, and anger, and a reliable reward when it’s time to celebrate.

If you are ready to experience emotions without consuming them or being consumed by them, the mindfulness, acceptance, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills in End Emotional Eating can help. This book does not focus on what or how to eat—rather, these scientifically supported skills will teach you how to manage emotions and urges gracefully, live in the present moment, learn from your feelings, and cope with distress skillfully.
