More About the Author
EBT trains individuals in brain-based tools that strengthen the circuits of resilience and are designed to improve the brain's set point (www.ebtconnect.net). The mission of EBT is to empower people to use the tools to emotionally connect with themselves and others to move forward in life -- rewiring the brain's emotional set point. As the set point moves up, the reward centers of the brain switch from being dependent on artificial rewards that ramp up stress to relying on the natural, sustainable rewards of a purposeful life: sanctuary, authenticity, vibrancy, integrity, intimacy, spirituality and freedom.
Many scientists and philosophers share insights about improving the quality of our lives, but Dr. Mellin has developed this evidence-based method that equips individuals with the tools and support to realize those states. By 2007, the method became completely brain-based, representing a new paradigm in health care - rewiring the stress response for resilience and well-being. In 2012, the method evolved to make learning those skills and using them to manage stress and improve the set point easier through technology-based learning and support (www.ebtconnect.net). She is a New York Times bestselling author, and speaks widely to professional and lay groups. She has three children and lives in Marin County, California.

The idea is to work toward learning and using effective ways of taking care of ourselves and our emotional and physical needs. The author believes that learning to become strong in these areas will eliminate our need to overeat, or eat the wrong foods. That rather than having to fight to lose the weight, our bodies will naturally and slowly get down to the perfect weight for us, according to genetics, bone structure, etc. The author has tested this with a lot of people, and found that it really does work. I believe that it would, because if you think about it, for most of us who are struggling with a weight problem, food is more than just food to us. It's comfort and love and acceptance...because even if no one else seems to care about us, at least the yummy food is always there. It gives us something to do when we're bored, calms us down when we are stressed, etc. We use it for much more than just fuel for our bodies, or even just as something enjoyable.Read more ›
I have lost 40 to 50 pounds several times in my life and am usually, in my head, on some sort restrictive diet that I seldom follow-through on. When I began this work I immediately lost 8 pounds and then stayed steady as I built up my ability to face things as they come. I have now started losing again in a way that is almost effortless because I am eating much more often simply because I am hungry or for the pleasure of something incredibly tasty but not because I am trying not to think about things that have made me uncomfortable/anxious during the day or in the past.
Before I bought this book I read the reviews here that said it was an expensive process but there is no organized support for this program in my area so my costs have not been that high.So far, I have spent around $200 for 6 months of materials ( journals, tapes, web site access) and one session of telephone coaching. It is worth it. I easily used to spend this much over a 6 month period on extra food.
The language used in the book can be a little off-putting ( e.g. the cures, tender morsels, hamburger sandwich) and the ideas are sometimes fairly complex, but if you are motivated and committed my own experience is that it really achieves results and helps provide a sense of balance in many aspects of daily life.

This book reads more like a story than a self-help book. There are WAY too many stories. I just want the facts, not a novel!Published on February 7, 2014 by J. Craig
