My friend and former life coach, Melissa McCreery, Ph.D, just published a book called The Emotional Eating Rescue Plan. This book is based on the premise that permanent weight loss has nothing to do with diets. Rather, weight loss has to do with learning to feed our non-physical hungers with something other than food. If you are ready to take a long hard look at your hungers and learn how to feed yourself what you need, then this book is for you. It is set up as a four-week course, however Melissa recommends using the book as a tool and cycling through the assignments numerous times. Overall it is highly recommended as a useful guide to learning to feed ourselves what we truly need. You can order the book from Amazon.
