BREAKING FREE© from Emotional Eating|
According to author and teacher Geneen Roth, your relationship to food is an unexpected path to almost everything. It is a doorway, not a wall, an opening, not a closing. All that you believe about love, change, joy and possibility is revealed in how, when and what you eat.
Geneen Roth's Breaking Free© From Emotional Eating approach stresses trusting yourself, nourishing yourself, and accepting yourself - and translating that into daily actions and beliefs. Breaking Free© helps us to learn to recognize the signals of physical hunger; to eat without distraction; to know when to stop; to kick the scale-watching habit; to withstand social and family pressures, and many more strategies to help us break the binge-diet cycle forever.
