"Joanna Poppink's Healing Your Hungry Heart
answers two questions I frequently hear from troubled eaters: "How do I begin my recovery and what can I do to sustain it?" Her chapter on the warning signs of an eating disorder is especially helpful to those who aren't sure if their relationship with food is unhealthy or not. Other chapters gently guide the reader in an exploration of what is needed to recover from deregulated eating--mindfulness, self-reflection and honesty, bona fide emotional nourishment, and daily practices for skill acquisition and moving toward true fulfillment. I would certainly recommend this book to my clients and students." -Karen R. Koenig, LCSW, M.Ed.

"Finally--a book that speaks beyond the stereotype of eating disorders as the 'little girl's disease,' reaching out to women who have lived with these devastating disorders for years, and offering practical, sound, and insightful advice on how to begin, and sustain, real recovery." -Marya Hornbacher
