If you eat to help manage your emotions, you may have discovered that it doesn't work. Once you're done eating, you might even feel worse. Eating can all too easily become a strategy for coping with depression, anxiety, boredom, stress, and anger and a reliable reward when it's time to celebrate.
If you are ready to experience emotions without consuming them or being consumed by them, the mindfulness, acceptance, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills in End Emotional Eating can help. This audiobook does not focus on what or how to eat - rather, these scientifically supported skills will teach you how to manage emotions and urges gracefully, live in the present moment, learn from your feelings, and cope with distress skillfully.

"Amazing resource for those that struggle with food"
The exercises work! The core concepts in this book are solid--mindfulness, self compassion, acceptance, urge surfing, and living by core values.
I found great results right away with the exercises. I finally believe there's a way out of this!
With emotional eating there is no magic cure but this book walks you through how to get comfortable sitting with uncomfortable emotions and dealing with urges and triggers.
I was already familiar with many of the concepts in this book: mindfulness, DBT, practicing self compassion. But I found that the book brought it together and focused on emotional eating in a powerful and concise way.
I've had eating disorders for over 30 yrs. This book gave me new hope and easy to remember tools to practice with.
"This book was very helpful to me"
This was my first behavior therapy book. It was very helpful to me. I plan to listen to it many times to help me with my struggle with food. I also loved the narrator.
"Poor narration destroys the book"
In the preface, an author of DBT theory mispronounces Marsha Linehan, the founder of DBT therapy, thus removing significant credibility about the book. Moving on to the narrator, she read very poorly too, as one reading to 3rd graders. Couldn't go on
informative and highlighted a few issues for me. it's packed full of ideas that could help you.
A brilliant book, tackles so many more issues than I expected. Performed beautifully, raises 'real' and far reaching considerations about eating and, more importantly, about living.
