Book Summary from Worthy Publishing:
End Your Cravings, Eat Well and Live Better
Remember the old Lays® Potato Chips slogan “Bet you can’t eat just one”? Psychologist Rhona Epstein says we all have foods that can trigger overeating. Food Triggers shows how to work with your body chemistry to gain total freedom from such impulse eating.
A licensed psychologist and certified addictions counselor, Epstein brings insights learned through her own battle with addictive eating to deliver tangible action steps to overcome eating issues. It is written for people who are currently battling an unhealthy relationship with food. Food Triggers is full of practical applications from Scripture, genuine compassion and true stories of struggle and success. This book helps readers understand that addictive eating is a physical, emotional and spiritual problem that must be addressed on all three levels in order to achieve true freedom. Food Triggers isn’t just another diet book; it is truly a food addict’s roadmap to the Promised Land—the land of success, peace and total freedom.
My Book Review:
This is an interesting book but it reads slightly like a text book. I was not able to just sit and read it as I would another nonfiction or fiction book. I believe that Rhona has some accurate points and she makes them well; what you would expect from a licensed psychologist, certified addictions counselor and marriage and family therapist. Since she has personally struggled with food addiction, she does personalize the material in this book. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about food addiction for themselves or in order to help others. It is a valuable tool to have in your mind as we see the world continue to struggle with food.
