This week on Relationships 2.0 my guest is Andrea Wachter LMFT author of Getting Over Overeating for Teens: A Workbook to Transform Your Relationship with Food Using CBT, Mindfulness and Intuitive Eating.
About the book:
Transform your relationship with food, once and for all. Written by a family therapist and eating disorder specialist, this skills-based workbook will give you the tools you need to manage your emotions and find the comfort and sweetness you truly seek in life–without overeating!
If you struggle with overeating, you are not alone. Studies show that millions of teens face problems with emotional eating and negative body image. Getting Over Overeating for Teens, written by an eating disorders specialist who struggled with her own issues as a teen, provides a wealth of tools to help you change your relationship with food. Using an integrated approach that includes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and intuitive eating, this book will focus on the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual factors that are essential to overcoming overeating.
With the powerful exercises in this book, you’ll come to a better understanding of your urges to overeat, and learn skills such as emotion regulation, assertive communication, moderate eating, and working with cravings. Most importantly, you’ll find healthy ways to fill up and apply what you’ve learned to living a healthier, happier life.
