Book Reviews

"Arlene Englander does a masterful job of translating complex emotions and belief systems into easy-to-understand language. Challenge yourself to be healthier and read this book!" — Marshall Teitelbaum, MD, Atlantic Psychiatric Care

"Clear, accessible, and full of common-sense, this book can help you re-negotiate a love-hate relationship with food, undo patterns of emotional eating, and gain self-awareness and self-compassion. Arlene Englander will be your perfect guide. Her wisdom and experience spring forth from every page". — Hope Edelman, Bestselling Author of Motherless Daughters

"Let Go of Emotional Eating is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to ending emotional eating once and for all. It teaches readers how to view food as pleasure and nourishment and offers simple strategies for stopping eating when full or satisfied." — Karen R. Koenig, M.Ed., LCSW, is a Psychotherapist, Blogger and International Author of Seven Books on Eating

"No doubt, one of Americans’ most dreaded four-letter words is diet. And while many businesses and methods boast their eagerness to solve the overeating dilemma, few seem to deliver the desired results consistently. Licensed, practicing psychotherapist Englander provides the kind of mental support and exercises needed to conquer emotional habits. Her five-point plan addresses food, fluids, evening eating, stress (learn from it to lessen it), and exercise (learn to love it). Nothing she advocates is new, but her combination of a well-written narrative and a plethora of patient anecdotes give readers a sense of hope and, more than likely, some different strategies, such as controlling food with the seven S’s: sip, survey, sample, select, sit, savor, and stop; substituting “next time” for “if only” in your conversations; and deciding that “perfectly good is good enough.” Readers will appreciate Englander’s cogent approach to an often difficult and disliked subject."
