This book is both very informative and accessible.
Sally
Very helpful book if you're struggling to understand how and why you eat the way you do.
Luna Belle
It seems geared more toward adult women, which seems rare for most ED type books.

If I didn't know better, I would think that the authors of this book had hidden cameras in my pantry (and in my subconscious). In just the first few pages, they perfectly described my over-eating episodes as if they'd been there with me while I devoured an entire bag of chocolate chips. And in the subsequent chapters they revealed the lies I've been telling myself in the back of my mind, helping me get honest with myself about my distorted view of my body, my eating, and how to find happiness. Although the book is clearly aimed at women in their mid-life (one of the 8 points in the plan is specific to menepause), I found most of the book applicable to me as a 30yo man who has fluctuated between over-eating and restricting my whole life. I feel like, for the first time in my life, a veil has been lifted that has revealed all the ridiculous lies I've been telling myself that keep me unhappy. I'm just starting out, trying to regain my ability to know when I'm really hungry (not tired, angry, bored, or depressed), and when I'm full (rather than eating until I'm sick). I already find I'm eating more than I convinced myself I should eat (though surely less than I was eating, since I'm not gorging on cookies anymore). I also have more energy and find myself able to deal with work and home with a smile, rather than succumbing to tension. If you've ever told yourself that your happiness is dependant on losing a few more pounds, or you've ever started eating a cake by taking a small slice, then rationalized another small slice, then another, and another and another, until the cake is nearly gone -- this book will be a kind, gentle wake-up call and help you take rational steps toward a healthy relationship with food.

As a psychologist, I love this book! The perfect title for a great book on our culture's obsession with food and appearance. Even though it addresses eating disorders in menopausal women, two of my teenage patients have told me they feel it describes them in details not found in other books. The concrete solutions offered have helped them to change their thinking. They feel understood by the compassionate tone of the authors. I like the stress reduction techniques and their understanding of how thoughts lead to behaviors. Change your thoughts, change your behavior. This book can clearly help to heal.

Modern culture is certainly in no danger of a shortage of "solutions" claiming to solve eating and weight related problems. However, most of these options present a "solution" that may ultimately contribute to the problem---Dieting. Such plans are NOT supported by scientific research, which has clearly proven dieting to be an ineffective approach to food and weight issues.

Runaway Eating takes a novel perspective. Striking an unusually elegant balance, it presents an evidence-based, self-treatment that is extraordinarily readable, simple to follow AND rooted in science.

This groundbreaking, 8-point plan arms anyone who has struggled with eating and weight issues with an indispensable set of tools to pursue a future free of disordered eating.

If you are tired of the latest DietRevoltionSolution, and seeking a real treatment option, buy this book!

This book is both very informative and accessible. Intellegently written, it addresses the issue of runaway eating from many angles and includes scenarios to which the reader can relate. I highly recommend this to women who are experiencing abnormal eating behaviors, or to anyone who would like to learn more about this topic. Dr. Phil should take notes!

I have had food 'issues' for years. I have read books on eating disorders but none of them really described me. This book described all of my behaviors and opened my eyes to the motivations behind them. I am working on using the methods suggested in the book.

An intelligent book- easy to read with a supportive tone, containing much needed information and guidelines for those of us who struggle with food issues.

As a counselor, I have been inspired to consider leading a support group with this book as part of the foundation.
