Books That Make You: Eat Better

Do you use food to cope? Does it help you get through a stressful day? Would you like to learn more about emotional eating and how you can overcome it?

Sunday November 14th guest on Books That Make You is Dr. Sheila Forman, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and eating disorder specialist. She has created a thorough and easy to follow 15-week program to help you let go of emotional eating. Week by week, Dr. Forman takes readers through the steps necessary to understand the relationship between emotions and food. By the end of the 15 weeks people will have a plan for dealing with their emotional life without turning to food as a coping mechanism.

Dr. Sheila Forman’s book is called Tame Your Appetite: The Art of Mindful Eating. Mindful eating does not focus on weight loss per se, but rather on becoming more aware of patterns of inappropriate eating, and provides tools for making sustainable changes in these patterns. It is a non-diet approach, designed to increase mindful awareness of experiences related to eating and to decrease mindlessness and unhealthy habits. It is a five-step non-diet approach to lose weight and find peace with food.

Join host Desiree Duffy and Dr. Sheila Forman Sunday November 14 at 8 or 11 pm eastern time on
