Why You Need this Book
If you’re sick and tired of dealing with the pain and exasperation of your relationship with food, Food is Not the Problem can help you finally break free from emotional overeating. If you’ve spent what seems like your entire life dieting, losing and then gaining back all the weight you lost. If you eat healthy during the day, saving your cheating for the nights and weekends. If you’ve been hiding food and sneaking food when no one else can see you. If you deal with stress by using food to cope. If all of your relationships revolve around your issues with food.
In this groundbreaking book, Michelle Morand, Founder and Director of The CEDRIC Centre, gives readers a solid road map to recovery from their use of food as a coping strategy. “Food is not the Problem” is filled with insights and tools that cover the three key areas of recovery: Your relationship with food; Your relationship with yourself; and Your relationship with others.
Michelle Morand provides you with a simple, step-by-step approach to create a lasting change in your relationship with food and all the relationships in your life. If you’re ready to truly start living, it’s time to start reading. -John Gray, Ph.D., author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
A Wealth of Practical Information
Readers will find a wealth of practical information that will provide you with a solid, intuitive understanding of why you do what you do with food. As Morand says, “There is always a reason for why you do what you do and, regardless of what you might believe it isn’t because you’re lazy or because you lack willpower!”
Understand and Finally Stop
Based on her own recovery experience from compulsive overeating and her 15 years as a specialist with her own counselling centre supporting hundreds of men and women worldwide to heal their relationship with food, this book is a comprehensive manual that outlines the path to recovery for anyone who uses struggles with food and body image. Whether you restrict, overeat, purge or a little of everything, “Food is not the Problem” will help you to understand why you do what you do and most importantly, how to stop once and for all.
A life free from food and body image focus is within your grasp. You can free yourself from your stressful relationship with food.
The Failure of the Diet Mentality
Years of dieting and the cycle of short term success and ultimate “failure” that the diet mentality brings, also known as the diet-binge-guilt cycle, may have led you to a place of hopelessness and despair about ever having a natural and free relationship with food or of ever feeling truly satisfied with your body. You may doubt that it is possible to truly feel that you are the best you can be. That sense of hopelessness and despair can make it hard to risk and try something new.
A Life Where Food is Just Food
It may be hard to believe that you can achieve a life where food is just food and you feel free and peaceful about it. It may even be hard for you right now to see that food is just a coping strategy and not the real problem.
Many of the CEDRIC Centre’s clients remark “I can’t believe it’s this easy!” when they begin to see change in their relationship with food. It’s almost unbelievable how easy a natural relationship with food is to create and maintain. It’s getting the old diet mentality out of the way that poses the biggest challenge. And to that end Morand has created a program that takes you step by step through cognitive and behavioural changes that will release you from the death grip of the diet mentality and lead you freedom.
