SO I am reading this book. I have read it before last August and I liked a lot of what it had to say about mindless eating and how we eat to forget about the place we are in or the feelings we are feeling. I really can relate to eating just to eat. Boredom, frustration and hurt can all trigger eating. I really feel like I can label myself as a compulsive eater. I am not a binge eater but I eat compulsively usually mindlessly.
Although I do not share this woman's exact views on God. I do agree with her statements about how we all long for a relationship with God and that is where we try to fill the gap with other things; love, sex, food, money, etc.
I am enjoying this book and it is really making me re-evaluate the way that I eat. I know I have been working on what I eat now is the time to focus on how I eat what I eat.
So I am keeping a hand written journal. I have been tracking all my food on my phone app but now I will write down my feelings about what I ate and how it affected my body.
