Vieira's book walks you through the psychology of emotional eating, provides you with practical solutions to the common issues, and includes action-provoking questions above space to write out your answers. This book is not meant to be read, it is meant to be used as a tool for personal transformation. So be warned: if you're not ready to change your behaviors, then this book will not be a good investment. If you are ready to act, I highly recommend it.
Here are the chapter titles:
1. Emotional Eating with Diabetes
2. Habits that Lead to Overeating
3. Over-treating Low Blood Sugars
4. Using Food to hide Your Emotions
5. A Positive Relationship with Food
6. Setting Yourself up for Success
7. You Are Living in Progress
At 46 pages, this is a short and easy read. Don't judge the value by the length. It's not mean to teach diabetes diet, but to promote a positive transformation. As the words that fill page 7 shout, "A healthy relationship with food is about feeling proud of your choices whether you choose carrots or ice cream." Getting you to this transformative space is Vieira's goal, and I believe her book will help many do so.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I've worked with Ginger Vieira on many projects over the years and think she is a real hero for dedicating her life to helping others.
In this book, Vieira, a fellow type 1 diabetic, explores a subject very apropos to dealing with diabetes. Not just the battles with food, carb counting and medications - but the underlying factors that drive diabetics crazy when we find ourselves forced to constantly think about the food we eat. Unlike healthy non-diabetics who may occasionally do so when trying a new diet for example, we as diabetics have no choice but think in depth about food all the time. This may lead to emotional eating and frustrations that only add to the struggles we already deal with.
This is a simple, well-written book with easy to follow philosophy and exercises. Issues such as over-treating low blood sugar, overeating in general or hiding your emotions with food are issues that many of us have experienced. Even if you think you know everything there is to know about diabetes and food - give this book a try. It may surprise you.
Ginger discusses how to develop a healthy relationship with food. If you struggle with emotional eating, this book will set you free! Ginger is amazing at breaking down these complex issues without making you feel guilty in the process. If you're ready, Emotional Eating with Diabetes offers you a new relationship with food.

All in large print, so if it was in 'regular' print, the book would have been only about 4 pages long.. I really expected more information. But still was okqy.Published on December 24, 2013 by Leslie Harvella
Waste of money. No useful information , unless you have been diabetic for about a week.
If you are actually looking for a useful guide try elsewhere.
