In this short bonus episode of the Taste for Truth Podcast (links below), I talk about the backstory behind my new book, Say Goodbye to Emotional Eating, and how it’s different than all of the other books that I have written about eating!
I’ll explain more in the podcasts, but here are a few key differences in this book compared to my last three books on eating:
- Taste for Truth and Freedom from Emotional Eating are Bible studies (Taste for Truth is more about weight loss in general and FFEE is about letting go of negative emotions – for example, there’s a chapter on anger, one on worry, one on stress, etc.), I Deserve a Donut is a reusable renewing resource, and Say Goodbye to Emotional Eating is a non-fiction book with lots of content to just read. It also has 100 renewing exercises with room to write the answers in the book.
- Say Goodbye to Emotional Eating is my best resource to help you develop a renewing habit since it contains 100 renewing exercises and you can write in the book. The renewing exercises contain Scripture meditations (a Bible passage with four questions to help you relate the passage to your current temptation and a prayer suggestion), truth journal prompts (each exercise will contain 5 lies and you’ll be asked to write the truth for each lie), advantage charts, option charts, and renewing questions.
- I’ve never written too much about specific boundaries, but Say Goodbye to Emotional Eating has a (long) chapter on boundaries. I talk about God’s purposes for food, primary vs. secondary boundaries, diet vs non-diet boundaries, how to choose boundaries (with a set of questions you can use to explore this for yourself), and also address questions like, “Is it okay to diet?”
- Women often tell me, “I don’t know what I’m thinking, I just eat,” or “I can’t figure out the truth for the lie I’m believing.” That’s why I included a whole chapter in the book on truth journaling with lots of examples of lies and truths related to overeating.
- I also included a whole chapter on option charts and how you would do an option chart to renew your mind for overeating.
- I haven’t written a book on the subject of eating since 2013, so in this book, I’ve tried to include the things I’ve learned over the last 9 years from podcasting about weight loss, coaching women who were trying to lose weight, visiting with other authors and coaches about weight loss, and the things I’ve learned in going through the journey of keeping my own weight off for all these years.
I’m hoping this book will be a helpful resource that will allow you to develop a consistent renewing habit and break free from the control of food. If you’d like to download the first chapter and find out about some great pre-order bonuses, go to saygoodbyetoemotionaleating.com.
