    As someone who struggles with food addiction as well as emotional eating, this book was very helpful in self discovery of understanding and coming to terms with the childhood triggers that have led to food addiction and emotional eating. The concept of food addiction is something that is often dismissed as something that doesn’t really exists. The biggest struggle faced by food addicts is that unlike drugs and alcohol which are not necessary for survival, humans need food to survive. Through thi As someone who struggles with food addiction as well as emotional eating, this book was very helpful in self discovery of understanding and coming to terms with the childhood triggers that have led to food addiction and emotional eating. The concept of food addiction is something that is often dismissed as something that doesn’t really exists. The biggest struggle faced by food addicts is that unlike drugs and alcohol which are not necessary for survival, humans need food to survive. Through this book, the author seeks to help the author embrace their food addiction and for on active recovery rather than believing that reading this book will lead to being cured. By reading this book, I learned that food addiction and emotional eating are two separate things and that food addiction, like an addiction to drugs or alcohol, is an hurdle that needs to be overcome daily and an addiction is never free from addiction but is instead always in recovery. Through a combination of the author’s personal stories as well as interactive writing exercises for the reader, this allows the reader determine what has lead to diagnosing emotional eating as well as engaging in writing exercise that is educational, insightful yet painful at times. I really enjoyed this book due to the amount of examples that is presented to explore how deeply childhood impacts present day eating relationships. I also appreciated that the author is very clear that although the book is informative, the reader should learn from the interactive lessons but they should also consult a professional.

    The first 3 paragraphs completely turned me off of this author Kristin Jones may have been trying to prove a point with her drug addict analogy, but wow. To say that you wished you were a meth addict because it would have been easier than having to struggle with food, proves that she doesn't know or care about any actual drug addicts. Being addicted to a substance is a lot more terrible than getting to go to a cushy rehab in Southern Florida (as Jones puts it).

Being addicted to a substance is a lot more terrible than getting to go to a cushy rehab in Southern Florida (as Jones puts it). I know and love several people who have struggled, and a few that have DIED from their addictions, and Kristin Jones manages to minimize their desperation in the first few paragraphs of her book. Not cool.

    While I appreciated the author's ability to share personal experiences, it felt to me like the author was trying to play therapist. While well-intended, it sounded like a person parroting the therapy they have had in the past. In my opinion, the "work" the author encourages you to do may need to be done in a therapist's office. Resolving many childhood issues needs more than writing about it. I was looking for a book that delved more deeply into the issue of emotional eating, and this mainly off While I appreciated the author's ability to share personal experiences, it felt to me like the author was trying to play therapist.

    Good and concise The author's perspective is an advantage, telling personal stories about her own journey. I am working on the exercises, so it's a work in progress.
