Summary

A Breakthrough Plan for Overcoming Emotional Eating--Without Dieting photos A highly visible authority on eating and weight disorders, Dr. Edward Abramson uses a refreshing, thought-based approach that brings new perspective to the subject--and new hope to diet junkies everywhere. Like the groundbreaking book Emotional Intelligence, Dr. Abramson's exciting life program redefines old beliefs. It teaches people to rethink their eating habits, reinvent their body image, and resist the endless cycle of quick-fix diets. This is what he calls Body Intelligence--a simple, safe, and smart three-step program that can show anyone how to eat intelligently, look at the body intelligently, and use the body intelligently. This is the intelligent way to eat well, lose weight, and live life to the fullest. There are no rigid meal plans, no low-fat recipes, no carb and calorie counters. Instead, Body Intelligence offers a unique weight-control plan that goes to the root of most eating problems--the thought patterns that affect the way people eat, the way they see themselves, and the way they live. It's a complete, lifelong program that can open minds and transform bodies--without dieting. Dr. Abramson gives even lifelong dieters the power to: Understand cravings and eating habits Learn how to enjoy eating again--without guilt Develop a realistic, positive body image Experience a more active, fulfilling life Body Intelligence also includes personal selfquizzes, thought-provoking exercises, and journaling techniques to help readers understand their feelings about food--and change their lives forever.
