When stress comes knocking, we eat. When we're celebrating, we eat. When we're happy, sad, angry, bored, or relaxed, we eat. Whether we feel good about our bodies or loathe what we see in the mirror, we eat. And often we hate ourselves for it.
Diets don't work. "No pain, no gain" tactics are emotionally and physically draining and ineffective, and they often employ shame and guilt - two excellent motivators for comfort eating.
Food is the ultimate double-crosser. It provides pleasure and pain in equal measure, but unlike people, you can't break up with food. Instead you need to change how you think and relate to food, so you reap the positives without letting it drive you to distraction.
Healthy living strategist and personal coach Lisa Lewtan has the answer: an honest exploration of your relationship with food. Through mindfulness exercises and self-examination, you'll learn to identify the chemical and emotional triggers that encourage you to eat and how to live a life where food strengthens rather than weakens.
Busy, Stressed, and Food Obsessed! offers a chance to transform your frenemy into a true friend. You deserve a healthy and delicious relationship with the food you eat.

If you're your own worst enemy when it comes to your relationship with food, you should read this book! Lisa Lewtan makes a lot of great points about how giving yourself a break can make a huge difference in your health and fitness. Well worth a read. I have never reviewed a book before, but think this book could give a lot of women some insight it takes years to achieve on your own. At age sixty, I had discovered much of this, but am still kicking myself for not figuring it out sooner. Give yourself a head start and read this book.
