Product Description

Despite progress in economic and social areas, many women often still feel oppressed by their own self-image and “weight problems.” This dialogue offers a refreshing alternative to the vicious circle of dieting and weight gain–a way to deal with poor body image that reaches to its core issues. These psychotherapists who specialize in eating disorders have developed a new view: “What we’re talking about is giving up diets, and starting to eat in a way that is going to cure your compulsive eating,” says Munter. “… If you cure the compulsive eating, you get to a point where you can think about your problems and anxieties rather than eat about them.” (Hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
