Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
"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., author of The Food and Feelings Workbook and Nice Girls Finish Fat
"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, author of Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia

Another aspect that sets this apart from other books is that she identifies many of the common personality traits that co-occur with EDs. She has the reader ask themselves difficult questions such as: "do I have issues encroaching on other's boundaries? how is my eating related to that? how can I heal from that?Read more ›
Cos let's face it who really understands what we go through.... least of all ourselves :) - So it is with much relief that I found this book and started to work through the chapters. I was fascinated to learn more about my behaviours not only around food but how by having this eating disorder had severely impacted on other areas of my life -
I have just come through the "GREAT TERROR" Chapter 10 in the book explains this in great detail the mental, physical and emotional turmoil you will feel at some part in your recovery - As you start to make progress and your patterns and behaviours start to change to the new you, your body starts to go into "panic mode" And it feels like the Great Terror- It is simply your body adjusting to the changes you are making, and Joanna does not make it sound any more elaborate than what it really is! - This was pure hell for me but so comforting to know it was part of the process..... and infact an indicator that I was making progress!!!!
To help me through this I picked up HHH and picked a random page it took me to page 109 in the chapter Challenges to Eating Well. There it was- the metaphor that allowed me to shift this terror and see it differently. It gave an example of how I should treat my body as if it were a maltreated dog picked up in the Rescue shelter.....Read more ›
