Bring an end to emotional eating by getting to the root of the problem.

Traditional diet books focus on meal plans, low- calorie solutions, and quick fixes. But these approaches just treat the symptoms, not the cause— which leads many dieters to return to their bad habits. Howard S. Farkas, who has more than two decades of professional and teaching experience in clinical psychology, digs deeper by looking at the single greatest cause of overeating: our emotions.

Emotional eaters— those who eat in response to feelings rather than hunger—usually understand basic nutrition and how to control their weight. They may take charge of every other aspect of their life, but still feel helpless against the emotional barriers keeping them from healthy eating. 8 Keys to End Emotional Eating provides a detailed plan for overcoming these barriers. By exploring the causes that drive the desire to overeat, Farkas develops practical skills to manage this desire on a daily basis. His road map for the future will help readers maintain healthy eating habits for years to come.
