Therapist Julie Simon joins me to talk about her new book –
When Food is Comfort: Nurture Yourself Mindfully, Rewire Your Brain, and End Emotional Eating
Current brain science shows that a lack of consistent emotional nurturance in infancy and childhood, when the brain is being formed, can result in difficulties with self-regulation, causing us to seek comfort and nurturance outside ourselves, often in substances, like food, and behaviors such as overeating. The good news is that our history is not our destiny and the brain can be rewired.
We talk about
- How to nurture ourselves
- The difference between thoughts and emotions
- How our body always remembers / how to break the pattern
- Fel it and heal it
- Stop dieting now!
- How does one discover their natural weight
- How to tune up your biochemistry
- 7 emotional eating mindfulness skills
Whether you’re trying to stop emotional eating, end a compulsive overeating problem, lose a large amount of weight, shed those last few pounds or just improve your health, Overeating Recovery has something for you.
You can move beyond your preoccupation with eating and weight, stop compulsive behaviors, eliminate the idea of dieting from your life forever, and experience a fuller, more satisfying life. Full recovery is possible. And I can show you how!
