Format: Paperback
After a lifetime of binge eating I found my solution in following the Four Level Plan that the author describes. I was able to see the relationship between my moods and my compulsive eating. Yes, she is right when she says that binges are temper tantrums! I began to see how I was stuffing my feelings down with food. This book takes the reader through a clearly described program for change. There are easy to follow instructions and great stories about people I could identify with. It is not about dieting. It is about living your life in a new way and learning to get your real needs met instead of using food.

5 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on August 24, 2001
Format: Paperback
I picked up this book because all signs seemed to point to a self-help book about compulsive overeating, and how to stop binging, etc. What I found was that most of what I was reading pertained to anorexia and bulimia, rather than the rest of us who do not purge what we take in. It does contain some useful information here and there, but minimum at best. It is a helpful tool for realizing some of the underlying reasons behind the compulsive desire to eat, so it is not all a loss. However, it would have been nice to read more about how to overcome the problem. That section is rather small, which I find most important. The book is also filled with typing errors, which can be pretty annoying after the first 5, and you're still counting. Rather disappointing as a whole.

More About the Author

As a child I loved to read and learn. I was fascinated by ancient times and eventually majored in archeology in college and graduate school. But along the way I decided that live people were more interesting than dead ones, and I became a psychotherapist and teacher. For over 30 years I have worked with and learned from thousands of people. Thanks to my friends and colleagues in the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology I am able to help spread the word about the amazing and rapid ways Energy Psychology techniques can contribute to emotional healing on the planet. I specialize in using energy modalities, especially EFT to help people recover from eating disorders, compulsive spending, anxiety, trauma, fears, relationship problems and more. I have written: Five Simple Steps to Emotional Healing, an award winning book that will teach you how to use EFT to deal with many emotional issues, Born to Spend, Desserts Is Stressed Spelled Backwards, Grownup Love: Getting It and Keeping It, and How to Stop Playing the Weighting Game. EFT For Procrastination, a book about how to stop putting up with putting off is also available. Don't put off reading it! EFT Tapping: 64 Quick and Easy Tips is my latest exciting book for EFT enthusiasts or people who want to find out what the bleep this new fangled technique is all about. I am in private practice in California and also enjoy counseling by phone or Skype anywhere in the world.
