I haven't finished the book, but I have to say in reading the first several chapters and working through the exercises, I feel that this book was a great break through for me.
I love that she can combine the science of psychology and food issues with faith, she does a great job combining with appropriate scripture. However, even someone that is not of the christian faith would benefit from this book, it is not a theme that is shoved down the readers throat. I would highly recommend this book to anyone dealing problems overeating. She covers the difference between eating addiction and eating for emotional reasons, food dysfunction, and how to over come them.
Her methods work, they are working for me! But even if you aren't, it's still pretty OK. We went thru this book at a food addiction support group. It has some really good moments, but some of it was just religious noise. If the religious stuff resonates with you then you'll enjoy this book. But if it does not, then still about half of it is really good.
The religious stuff is never offensive to an unbeliever, but it's just filler that are little more than words on a page if you're not into that sort of thing. Still, don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. There are some OK things for everyone in this book. And if you're into the whole religious thing, you'll probably really love it.
Get in touch with why you are over eating. If you or anyone you love struggles with binge eating, then this is definitely the book for you! Aside from your Bible this is absolutely the most powerful book you will read! However, for those of us who don't binge, who don't take solace in food, etc, it wasn't a very enlightening book.

One person found this helpful. We did not get into this mess all at once. We can change if we work at it. Rhona gives us lots of tools, advice, knowledge, other resources and even the biggest of all Faith in God to help us. I know I am going to work and keep reading and following Rhona's advice.
Perfect timing to help me with my goals I have set. I was given Food Triggers by Rhona Epstein to read and asked to give honest review and be part of Food Triggers blog tour.
I do want to spell Rhona's name differently though. Feb 01, Matthew Hodge rated it really liked it. From what I understand, the concept that food might be addictive is still up for debate. Or perhaps if it is addictive, it is nothing in the food as such but more so in the mind of the person consuming it. So I can't vouch for the science. But I can say that the idea resonated for me. While I wouldn't classify myself as having a serious eating disorder like many of the people that Epstein writes about , I do struggle to stop at sensible quantities of junk food.

Editorial Reviews. linawycatuzy.gq Review. “Food addiction is real. It's also discouraging, and the Eat Well and Live Better - Kindle edition by Epstein Rhona.
I know the pull of a chip bowl or From what I understand, the concept that food might be addictive is still up for debate. I know the pull of a chip bowl or an open block of chocolate left lying around. So I found this book had some good stuff to say, especially about food, emotions and the past. As to whether I would recommend it to others, I'm not sure. If you were Christian, probably no hesitation. But Epstein's personal recovery and how she encourages others to escape from their food addictions, is so rooted in relying on God that there is probably more time spent on talking faith than the practicalities of diet.
Since reading this book, I have noticed my food habits change, and I feel like I have a better relationship with food as a result. Jan 14, Ibjoy Hannabass rated it it was amazing.

The author shares her own personal story in this book. For me, when someone is giving advice and suggestions, whether it be to an audience or to a friend, they had better went through it. If they haven't, then they really can't say they understand, because unless they had, there is no way I will take advice or suggestions from them.

Epstein basically tells you about why you eat what you eat and when you eat it.
And, of course, how you can change that to help you become healthier and overcome your destructive ways. Most of what she said, I already understood on some level - either from some blurb on the news, other self help books, tv etc. Having it all compiled into one easy to read format was definitely a plus. It helped keep all of the information straight as you tr I received this book through First Reads giveaway. It helped keep all of the information straight as you tried to apply it to your situation and life.
I did learn a few things about myself and how I can change my attitude and behaviors and, thus, my eating habits for the better. Maybe I didn't read the blurb as well as I should have when I signed up for the book, because I didn't realize it was as focused on faith in God as it turned out to be.
I would definitely recommend this book to others who struggle with eating and weight and healthy thoughts and attitudes. Jan 13, Robin rated it liked it Shelves: I received that book free from a Goodreads First-Reads giveaways. I enjoyed this search into what triggers different individuals to overindulge in food, whether it's cookies, ice cream, cake or french fries.
One aspect I have not considered in the past when it came to overindulgence.

She also provide a very simple eating guide to follow along with an emphasis on exercise to accompany the religious aspect of her plan.
From the stories in the book, it does make a true difference if all of these aspects are followed during recovery from these food addiction issues. Jan 18, Christine McIntosh rated it it was amazing. Received through a Goodreads giveaway. I loved most of this. There were a few preachy parts that I skipped though. It's so hard to find self-help books that cater to atheists but that's a whole other basket. I know I'm addicted to carbs and sugar. Identifying what's going on, finding out that it's chemical and psychological and not just bad habits was nice.
There are ways to deal with it but primarily just stay away. Just say no because one bite and you'll relapse. I read it a few months ago and t Received through a Goodreads giveaway. I read it a few months ago and that's all I'm remembering from it. I did recommend it to a few others. Jun 06, Farah rated it it was ok Shelves: I liked how she addressed these issues at their own specific topic and the underlying causes that can account for these food triggers.
The author made addressed the topic in a very approachable way and it is a great start for beginners trying to address the issue. However, the author also used a lot of religious praying and finding your connection to God as a method of coping which may not appeal to everyone. Overall, it a great way to learn about the issue.

Perfect book for you or a family member or friend suffering from food addictions. Gets down to the core of your physical, emotional, and obsessive food addictions. Written in everyday language, so easy to understand. Dec 10, Chelsea DeVries rated it it was amazing. Even though I bought this book for only 0.
It covers the psychology of why you binge eat, and goes over the strongholds that cause you to trigger into a binge. It also utilizes God's word to help people take control over any abuse they suffer from and helps you take the proper steps toward recovery. May 16, Chrystal rated it liked it. I hate the idea of miracle diets.
This book is not a miracle diet. Rhona Epstein offers real and healthy ways to get weight under control. I recommend this book to people who like self help books, people looking for an actual solution to lose weight, and anyone just looking for some very uplifting stories about real clients Epstein has had.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. The third section is entitled Beating Your Triggers: This section helps you lay out a strategy to overcome your binge eating.
Rhona has a gentle yet firm voice that encourages the reader and continues to point towards healing. Her use of Scripture throughout cements the notion that this is more than just about eating too much it is truly a spiritual battle but it is a battle that can be won! Connect with the author:
