Review

“Reassuring and calm, informative and inspiring, this book is your lifeline to fixing your relationship with food and gaining the health you deserve.”
Neal D. Barnard, MD, president, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Washington, DC, and author of Breaking the Food Seduction

“A must-read for anyone who struggles with overeating. Julie Simon offers a beautifully written, compassion-filled guide for ending emotional eating, yo-yo dieting, and poor health....Practical and inspirational.”
Rory Freedman, coauthor of Skinny Bitch

“Breaks new ground and offers a fresh, heartfelt approach to an age-old problem. Highly recommended!”
Hyla Cass, MD, author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health

“By addressing all aspects of a woman’s inner and outer life — from her brain chemistry to the robustness of her social and spiritual connectedness — Julie Simon’s anti-diet approach gives women the tools they need to finally feel comfortable in their own skin.”
Sara Avant Stover, author of The Way of the Happy Woman

“In this marvelous book, Julie Simon takes you on a journey of self-care and soul-care that will help you understand your emotional and spiritual hungers, heal your relationship with food, and bring balance and happiness into your life.”
John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America

The Emotional Eater’s Repair Manual may well be the last ‘weight loss’ book you will ever need to purchase. Julie Simon masterfully guides you off of the roller coaster of weight loss and emotional eating and into a positive, healthy relationship with food. With extraordinary insight and compassion, she walks you through a personal exploration that exposes the roots of your struggles with food and helps you to rebuild patterns of behavior that restore physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.”
Brenda Davis, RD, registered dietitian and coauthor of Becoming Vegan

UPDATE: 23/11/2013 Please see below for my initial review.
So as promised here I am with an update. It has been a year I think since I posted my first review and in that time I have come a long long way. With the help of the "inner conversations" and "nurturing limits" skills from this book I am able to go weeks without a binge and am able to regulate my emotions and meet my needs effectively. This is from a starting place of bingeing on a daily basis and struggling constantly with my emotions. I gave up dieting a good few years ago since I knew it was a major cause of binge eating but it was the emotional eating that I had issues with. I still have binges and I understand that it will take a while to eliminate this completely especially since I have relied on food for coping for over 10 years. Nevertheless I am making imense progress and even when I do binge I can identify the underlying reason that led me to binge and the reasons why I did it. This helps me to come with plans to deal with the same situation in the future. I measure my progress and success by the number of days that I stay binge free and thats what matters the most to me but for those that are interested in numbers I can tell you that I have gone from a UK dress size 18/20 down to a 14.

INITIAL REVIEW
Where do i begin? In my never ending search to overcome my binge eating and emotional eating habits and to reduce my weight i have read books accross the spectrum from diet books to books on intuitive eating and those treating overeating as addiction. In all that i have read i have never come across any advice that effectively helped me to deal with my emotions without turning to food or in fact how to deal with emotions at all.

I'm a bit torn with this book. On the one hand, it has some amazing insights that I believe go to the heart of why people are emotional eaters. It's deeply refreshing and on the money to hear someone say it's not about food but unmet childhood needs. My own instincts have been leading me down that path for a while now, and I was looking for a book that could help give shape and guidance to my explorations. The first section of this book does that, in a pretty big and great way. I actually think and wish that this book was split into two or three books, because it traverses too much ground in the long run. That first section is epic and contains ideas that I believe lifelong emotional eaters will be grappling with, one way or another, their whole life. There are few bigger topics for many of us than lifelong shame (which in my view is so linked to unmet needs). The link between shame and binge eating is profound and deserves to be better known. But it's also extremely painful and difficult (if not, at times, downright impossible) to confront. That one area of a person's soul/life alone will take years to understand and heal or genuinely shift. I felt, reading this book, that it began with an understanding of that complexity and gentleness. I loved that it moved things away from actual food and eating, diets, nutrition etc. I loved that it went even deeper than books that say we binge because we deprive ourselves and forbid certain foods (true, but never the whole story).

Then it shifted gear, into the world of CBT. It's a world we've all come to know, and there are thousands of psychologists ringing that bell and churning out books on how you can reframe any problem by exposing the core belief and challenging it with a more rational, positive response etc.

My wife bought this book and worked through the first two parts and absolutely loved it. She wanted me to take a look at it and work the program with her before she started on part 3. At first, I was hesitant, but agreed, to make her happy. And boy am I glad I did! Even though it's written primarily from a woman's perspective, the book really applies to anyone struggling with any kind of substance issue. My main "drug of choice" is food, but alcohol is a close second. I never realized how issues from my childhood and my difficulty with experiencing and expressing emotions related to my food/alcohol issues. I really just thought I loved to eat and drink. My wife had been telling me this all along, but reading about how emotions and childhood trauma relate to food use helped me understand the connection.

I have always tended to see the glass as half empty; my wife sees it as half full. I'm learning, from this book, how to deal with my pessimistic, self-defeating thoughts in a constructive way. My wife has always thought that I might have some mild depression, and in part 2 of the book, the author discusses brain chemistry imbalances and this fit me to a tee. So I plan to look into a holistic way of correcting my brain chemicals. I definitely need to exercise more--there are some great suggestions covering this as well. Oh, and the part about getting enough sleep--well, I need to work on that also, since I don't sleep more that 6 hours each night.

My wife loves this book and has written her own review, but she loves it even more because it has helped me make some changes she couldn't motivate me to make in the past (and I couldn't motivate myself to make.) I guess hearing it from a different source makes it hit home in a different way.
